Great place to go for drinks and eat tapas. Bartenders and servers are spot on in making recommmendations and mixing drinks.

Since it's tapas, you can just stop in for some nosh but it's better to come starving so you can try everything. All the fare is amazingly good but a few suggestions include the lobster and chorizo sruffed quohog, the tempora vegetables, and the lobster mac and cheese. But there are tons of selections, so even if none of those... More

We went for happy hour with friends we hadn't seen for a long time. Half price tapas were delicious. The sparkling sangria was refreshing and yummy. Service was great. Jack was our waiter and he was very attentive and did a great job.

We didn't actually eat here, we only had drinks, but they were awesome! Lots of different martinis and mixed drinks, things you wouldn't see anywhere else. Our bartender Alexa recommended a drink that was named after her (she was super adorable) and was friendly and knowledgeable. The drinks were delicious, and reasonably well priced. The atmosphere was excellent, the bar... More

Went here for an early dinner and found that tapas and oysters were half off (before 6 pm, I believe), which makes the meal quite affordable. The oysters were the biggest disappointment was whoever was shucking them wasn't very good at it, and most of the oysters had broken shells in them. The rest of the tapas were quite good... More

We had dinner here last night and really enjoyed the cocktails and tapas. I really recommend the Avocado wedges with bacon, tomato and crumbled bleu cheese. Yum!

Half price tapas on Tuesdays is a steal! Best tapas we've had. Also Jill at the bar makes one of the best martins I've ever had (and that's saying something!)

Great find! After a day on the road and on our bikes we were tired, hungry, but not in the mood for a full sit-down dinner. Tapas was perfect. Our waitress asked if we had been before and as newbies, she was able to steer us in the right direction for how much to order to satisfy without over stuffing.... More

During a casual stroll through Hyannis, my wife and I decided to stop fro a drink and an appetizer before heading to dinner. Embargo looked like a place we would like. We were not at all disappointed. We each had a drink and shared some jumbo shrimp and oysters. A fantastic way to wrap up an afternoon. Our bartenders were... More
