Tapas paradise

I went with my niece and her husband on a Saturday night. Tapas plates were good and size was good for sharing without being meal. I like paella but niece's husband thought it should be more crusty on bottom. Never having it before, I enjoyed it for what it was. Good food for me!

I'm told this restaurant has been in existence for years. We were immediately greeted and shown to our table. Although the table was cramped, we managed to gather around. Sangria was outstanding and not over-powering. Some dined exclusively on tapas, but I ordered paella (the order takes 20 minutes to prepare). EVERYONE agreed that the tapas were outstanding. I found... More

I'm not a tapas fan but this place changed my mind, Tampa dishes are fantastic, the paella is just right and the Sangria is to die for.....

We went here for my friends birthday with a party of 10. The wait was a little long for a party that size, because we couldn't make reservations after 5pm on a Saturday. The place was busy but not overly crowded. We had no problem finding room in the bar area, which offers tapas and drinks. The food was delicious... More

Good food - nice variety, some thing for every taste and no one left hungry. Great atmosphere - casual, music, felt warm & welcoming. Amazing service - attentive, great recommendations, food was served as it was ready and glasses were full. Look forward to another meal here!

At the suggestion of our hotel front desk we walked to Cafe Iberico for a fairly early dinner on a Friday night. We called ahead to see if they took reservations and they told us just to come on over since they had seating available. We thought this was a warning sign, but to our surprise the food was excellent.... More

I went there for my office outing for the Holidays. The place was busy, as expected. The food was delivered in tamely manner but some how the taste was off, kind of greasy and over cooked (patatas bravas, pulpo a la plancha, raxo adobado, platano al caramelo), for tapas I will prefer Cafe Ba-Ba Riba, better presentation and taste. Not... More

In Chi town for business I was craving some tapas, based on many recommendations from the locals I decided to give Iberico a whirl. Ugg.... I walked into the restaurant and the hostess was very friendly but seemed really confused as to why I wanted to sit at the bar, I love sitting at the bar, especially if I am... More
