I went out for dinner with my sister, my daughter and 2 of my cousins. We shared 5 tapas. All were great but the two I remember most were the "Esparragos con Gambas- which was marinated asparagus & shrimp with goat cheese; and the "Calamares Con Ajo" which was perfectly cripsy fried calamari. We shared 2 paellas- one meat and... More

I love tapas. There are just not enough of them around. Bocado is fantastic in food, drink and atmosphere! It is my go-to restaurant where I know I can depend on a having a memorable evening.

Funkily decorated cool vibed Tapas joint. Very good food and the exciting atmosphere make this a must see when in Worcester. Great place to hang before a show at the Hanover. Excellent wine selection as well. Highly recommended!

All the tapas we got were very good. I especially liked how the dishes were small and meant for sharing. It's more approachable than a huge plate. We especially liked the flan and the churros. The chicken, potatoes, and venison we ordered were also very good. Enjoyed everything!

Bocado is a lovely authentic Spanish style tapas wine bar in downtown Worcester. Easy to find at the intersections of Route 290 and Route 122 with parking right across the street and valet parking as needed. Bocado has a nice relaxing vibe along with very welcoming and knowledgeable staff. Our waitperson was "Jeff" who was friendly, polite, efficient and made... More

After studying abroad in Spain, I was a little (always am) weary going to a Spanish restaurant here in the States. However, this place is amazing. Went with several girlfriends and we all agreed that every course of the meal was mouthwatering and delicious (we did the tapas experience--would highly suggest). Our party had a few food restrictions (vegetarian and... More

My husband and I had dinner here on our date night. What a pleasant surprise to find this restaurant in Worcester (you might expect it in Boston's South End). Sophisticated and tasteful decor, friendly but professional wait staff, and a varied menu of delicious tapas to choose from as well. We particularly enjoyed the spicy chicken and the kobe beef...
