It closed about a month ago and is going to reopen as a Mexican restaurant in October. It will be nice to have a Mexican restaurant in Channelside Plaza

We had a party of 9 (4 adults, 5 kids) and our server was superb! Averaged out to $10/person including adult beverages and we were stuffed! Slight hiccup in serving time from the kitchen, but no biggie. The only issue was one or two of the dishes were rather bland, but the good stuff more than made up for it.

Great way to enjoy sharing food with friends and trying new things. Everything was really good. We enjoyed sitting outside and people watching while we waited for our next selection. You can order one round of food and if you really like something, order some more or try something else. Very flexible way to dine and I like to share... More

We enjoyed lunch here after visiting the Aquarium. The four of us shared 6-7 different tapas. The service was great and it was nice to try so many different dishes. Would definitely return, we did not sit outside due to sun, but would love to return and sit outside for dinner and people watching. Very relaxing place.

My husband and I ate here and found the staff delightful. We were there to take our time with a few drinks and have a meal before an event at the forum. The margaritas were delicious (and good price at happy hour!). We ate the steak, salmon, tortilla chips & salsa, meatballs, and black beans with rice. Everything was very... More

This was our first visit to Tinatapas. It was recommended by family, that has previously visited it, and loved it. We loved it , also. The only reason that I didn't give it a 5 , was that the taste of the Margaritas were just average. We had never had tapas style food. It is a great way to taste... More

Close to the Arena. Average menu, quality acceptable. Prices are fair. Found service good. Not a real comfortable place, but proximity to the Arena makes it as good as anything around.

This is my 2nd trip to Tinatapas. Excellent food for a decent price. Small dishes allow for more opportunity to try different items. The first time I went I thought that their Sangria was hands down the best Sangria I have ever had, this time it was watered down with ice and lacked the flavor I loved on the first... More

This a Spanish tapas type restaurant in Channelside area of Tampa. At the time of our visit, it was not crowded. However, the food was good. The atmosphere was fun. The waiter was helpful. Will return on future visits to Tampa.

We were on our way to see a hockey game (and not being from Florida) walked down Channelside and found this restaurant. The variety on the drinks, which included every Bacardi Rum flavor you can think of was awesome! We ordered a variety of dishes (served tapa style...small plates) and shared and we all enjoyed it very much! If you... More
