There are a zillion restaurants in the "neck" or Ironbound section of Newark, and I must say that this is one of my favorites!
A great and varied menu..not all hard core Spanish either. Had some of the best lamb chops ever. Impeccable and friendly service...in a semi fancy but not stuffy setting. And no a bad price!
Let me start by saying I've been to this restaurant about fifteen times. And every time that I've eaten there has been terrific. The regular menu is always good, but the specials, are just perfect.

We were suggested by a couple that I met on a plane the other day...they were right! We were treated so well and the server (Eduardo) was the greatest! This is a definite repeat performance...try the Paella Valenciana, awesome!!

The complimentary tasty soup... More

This month I hosted a business dinner there and when I made reservations wanted a corner table that provided more privacy. As expected my request was honored and from the time we sat down our server was there to take... More
The Spanish Tavern is such a warm, welcoming, relaxing place to have an excellent meal. Our waiter was fabulous, had a wonderful sense of humor, and explained everything to us. We started with a favorable soup that is part of the meal, had a mussel and ham appetizer, and then each got our own entre which we shared. Everything was... More
In Newark with company business meeting. The tavern sent a van to pick up our group from our hotel . We would never have found it otherwise.
