Had a great night here. Wonderful food which was creative and delicious. Had a few too many drinks afterwards due to their great list of liqueurs and spirits - some we had never even heard of before. Waitress was great. A great memory from our trip.

It was our first time and WOW - can't wait to go back! We order about ten small plates for the four of us and all were delicious. Their cocktails are fabulous - you must try the Five Bouroughs. We also ordered the Apple Bread Pudding for the table - delish.

What an incredible change of atmosphere just walking through the front door. The food is different, very different from the usual fare in Lafayette - very European and very tasty. A large selection of tapas to choose from (try the sardines and or the duck fat fries) They are worth the calories. The restaurant far exceeded my expectations and I... More

My husband and I were at the Festival International de Louisiane downtown last Friday. We didn't want to stand in line at the food booths so we popped in here for dinner. Good choice. Although the dining rooms were jamming, we didn't have to wait long to be seated The restaurant is loaded with Old World and vintage downtown atmosphere.... More

We were on the road on the way to New Orleans and opened up the Trip Advisor app and thought Tapas sounds fine. Lafayette is a nice college town on the cusp of the off shore drilling industry. Ah, back to food .. just go. Innovative and well prepared Tapas, Sat on the porch and had the fried Feta balls,... More

It's located downtown and offers outside seating which I like. The portions are too small and too costly for my taste. Parking is not easy. We rarely eat there because there are so many other restaurants ahead of it on my favorite list.

We made reservations on a Friday night, dinner for two. My husband was in town for business and this was his second visit during the trip. He's a self proclaimed food snob, so two visits during one trip is quite a compliment to this restaurant. I'm glad I was able to join him on one of the visits! During his... More
