Excellent Tapas on the Cape

At first, one wonders if a restaurant on the Cape that serves both tapas AND sushi does it just because those are under-represented categories; and will inevitably mess up both. The good news is, Embargo deserves to stay, at least for the tapas. There are a good selection of cold and hot tapas on... read more

Loved it so much that came here twice: the first time by chance before taking the ferry to Nantucket and the second, to introduce more people to the restaurant before returning home.

Family members recommended it. I had a delightful cocktail with my meal. We had tapas, which my husband and I had never had before. There were four of us, and we shared bites of each of the dishes we ordered. We had a delicious tossed arugula salad, which was perfect for us to share. We tried their braised short ribs... More

Thought I was in the big city! Nice decor, nice menu and really tasty food. Tapas was nicely prepared and served and the steak was one of the best! Sitting at the bar was very comfortable and two very animated bar tenders...

As year round residents, we dine at Embargos probably once a month and love it! We've loved everything from the tapas to the Kobe burgers to full dinners and have always loved their food. The presentations are beautifully done and the wait staff is professional and always very friendly. One has the choice to sit privately in a rounded booth... More

30+ Tapas, Sushi, Flatbreads, etc. Everything we tasted was good, but not great. Great flavor on the Cajun Ahi Taco filling, but the tortilla tasted like they came from the grocery store. The gambas was good, but I've had much better. My advise to the owners would be shorten the menu and do them right.

I came to Hyannis with a bachelorette party and we stopped here for dinner the first night. Everything about this place is inviting. The tapas menu is extensive and we loved our food. The only weird thing was that a few of us ordered the same cocktail and none of them tasted the same. Anyway on the weekend nights it... More

Excellent from start to finish! After a long beautiful day on the water, off the shores of Nantucket, we (a party of six) decided to relax on the front patio, for cocktails and tapas. Drinks, and Food were fabulous! Wait staff couldn't have been better. Highly recommend!
