Great Option for Late Night

We showed up late (after nine) on a cold Tuesday evening. Great tapas menu which we discovered was half-price that night. Super friendly service. Tapas menu was a great option for a light meal before bed. Kitchen was cooperative given that we were the only ones ordering food at that hour.

This was our fourth visit and once again the atmosphere, service and food beyond reproach. We shared one cold (hummus, tabbouleh, tomato and basil)l and two hot Tapas (Kobe beef sliders and sea scallops) and actually felt as if we had consumed a huge meal.

Located in the heart of Main Street, Embargo is a great place to stop for excellent tapas and outstanding cocktails. It is also a great spot to sit outside and people watch as you dine. There are many cold and hot tapas dishes to choose from. On Tuesday, tapas is half price all night. Inside, the bar is a large... More

One of the things that attracted me to this restaurant good cuisine and a great atmosphere. Every summer they organize great parties, but inside it very stuffy. I like to visit this place.

Food was delicious and the service was excellent. We had a variety of sushi, tapas and pizza. The artichoke pizza was amazing. The jazz music provided for a great date night.

In hyannis off season and havent been here for maybe 10 years. What a change, tired Cape cafes have just about gone and new wave establishments that remind me more of hip holiday stops around Long Island or NJ shore. Embargo delivered great cocktails, fab food and trendy atmosphere. Top that with really good service. Its a winner!

We were on vacation at the cape and wanted a break from seafood and found this place. I recommend it. Good tapas wide choice and had a great time. I would go back next time in the area.
