After reading another trip advisor review, we had the same experience. Went for half-price tapas on Tuesday nite and had to return on Thursday nite willing to pay full price. We actually went a little crazy the first night ordering two and three tapas at a time and found ourselves stuffed before we knew it. But, each tapas we ordered... More

Over several days stay in Hyannis, we found this to be the best restaurant we tried on Main St. Our favorite part was the atmosphere. Live band provided great entertainment. The place is loud so don't expect to have a quiet conversation. We really enjoyed the great variety of tapas and martinis. We tried several different things on the menu,... More

Good tapas and setting -- not great but pretty good, and drinks are excellent. Good place to sit outdoors. We had stuffed mushrooms, scallops, mussels in a curry sauce, all OK. Can't remember the 4th thing we had which sort of tells you something. Service was pretty good, nice place to sit outdoors as well.

Great tapas bar. Half price tapas from 16:30 - 18:00 every day and all night Tuesdays. Great outdoor patio for an afternoon Stella and a little tapas in the sun. IMHO best location on Main Street for an outdoor drink.

If you love martinis make sure you stop at Embargo some evening & enjoy the fantastic LIVE jazz music as well as a great martini. Good luck trying to pick one from the long list!!

We went there with friends and it was very nice atmosphere, if you go there before 10 pm you don't pay the cover fee. We went for dinner, they have a big tapas menu , all was good except that with our hummus came with only 2 pieces of pita bread.???. After 10 pm , they have a DJ ,... More

Love the chocolate martini. Bartender (female) great service. Even made my friend a mini-chocolate martini since she's sensitive to alcohol.Also put a candle in her watermellon for her b'day. Very tasty tapas.Have been here several times and have never been disappointed.

Sit outside unless you do not mind a noisy venue. The food was excellent and well priced. Great place to order 4-5 small plates! Service was a bit lacking. We had already had our first two tapas plates delivered before we got the bottle of wine that we ordered!
