Great food

Really great food. Nice atmosphere if a bit over crowded. I'm a small person and still had to squeeze between people to get to our table. A plus sized person would be uncomfortable. That being said, our server was super sweet and the food was great.

We were lucky enough to get a table on the (3 table) balcony outside, it was a little cramped, but worth it (inside was so cold). The waiter was excellent, and delivered everything at good times. We ordered small plates to share. The ciabatta loaf had really great dipping oil, the bacon wrapped dates were OK, but I wouldn't get... More

A friend and I went to Pamplona's Tapas Bar for a pre-theater dinner. The service was friendly and efficient, and we got to our show on time. The food was attractively plated, seemed fresh and was served hot. Nothing I ate totally blew me away, but we didn't have any complaints about anything we ordered. It was all fine. The... More

Fantastic little romantic restaurant, one of the best in Lafayette. The atmosphere is great, the servers are excellent and the food is to die for. It's not a cheap dinner by any means, my husband and I spent almost $100 and he was still a little peckish when we left. It's worth every penny though, I can't wait to go... More

A great place in a great location. Pamplona's tapas offers little bites of a variety of foods. Go by just for the bar. Wait staff very knowledgeable and friendly. In the heart of downtown. Stroll down Jefferson St. for the feel of a big city with the quaintness of Cajun Country.

I came here twice. The atmosphere is really nice but the food is just ok. Nothing special. I expected a little more for the price.

Wow! We made reservations last weekend for a last minute date night and thoroughly enjoyed Pamplona. The atmosphere was so fun and different and our meal was fantastic. We cannot wait to return!
