Delicious Tapas and Paella. Very grateful place at Downtown at Chicago. Good relation quality/price. Free parking the first 2 and half hours. Our favorites Tapas, Sautéed Octopus and Tortilla española. Very good. Top recommendation.

Went here for a Business Lunch and had the $12 special that included a complimentary appetizer, two choices off the menu AND dessert. The portions were unexpectedly BIG and overall very good. I had the salad (Ensalada Primavera) and the Chicken breast (on skewers like a shish-ka-bob) others had the soup (home-made from scratch), the Spanish meatballs - excellently flavored... More

This was my second visit to this restaurant. As other reviews noted, the servings are small and a bit pricey, but that is not uncommon for a tapas place. I have eaten tapas at many restaurants in the City and suburbs, as well in southern Spain. This place can match the best of tapas, including in Seville. The cerveza selection... More

My husband and I came to la tabernas for dinner on 12/6/14. We thought the food was very good. We realize it is a tapas restaurant, but felt the portion sizes were small compared to other tapas restaurants we have eaten at. The curry chicken, and the filet with onions were our two favorites. We also had the red house... More

This was our second visit and it was just as good as the first. Food was fresh, well prepared and pleasantly plated. Great selection and reasonable prices. Service was good. Tasted like Spain! Will go back again.

Once again, Trip Advisor has come through with a wonderful restaurant. My friend and I had heard of tapas but had never tried it. We came for a late lunch and had the $12 special, which included 2 items and dessert(flan). I highly recommend the paella - it was really tasty. The restaurant was very clean, and the wait staff...

This is a great restaurant near UIC! If you are visiting UIC for a sporting event, I would definitely recommend you stop in. The food was excellent and the flight of sangria is fun to try. The bar area also looked like a nice place to just sit back and relax. We were there on a Friday night and the... More
