If you are a Devil's fan or have a subscription to NJPAC, you should know about Spanish Tavern in Newark. This place is also good enough be a destination for dinner alone. Dinner includes good rolls, delicious vegetable soup and a varied dinner menu. I usually get the rack of lamb and my husband asks for plain, sautéed veal. Both... More

My friend & I are here for lunch on my birthday in May. The food was much better than expected. Nice secluded spot in Newark. Parking is horrible but we really enjoyed ourselves and the food was wayyyyy too much for the both of us to eat. You definitely get your monies worth.

Had dinner with my daughters before a concert at the Pru Center. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. The food was quite enjoyable and the prices were reasonable. It was very much worth the walk over from the venue.

I'm from ChiTown, so when I saw the posted sign directing me to the Spanish Tavern; I immediately thought...seafood tacos i.e. Mexican food. If it the sign reads, "Spanish" it's Mexican food hands down in my town! As I reflect...maybe it was the word, "Tavern" that I tripped over. However, to my surprise I entered a fabulous eatery with tables... More

Spanish Tavern provides complimentary shuttle service from nearby airport hotels. Quality and quantity,excellent. Very flavorful, soup is complimentary and good. Pricing and service excellent. Better alternative than hotel restaurant. Can't imagine anyone would be disappointed.
