We went to Espana with my brother and sister in law for dinner and drinks. Great place with nice "feel" to it. It was very nice to see the owner, visiting all the tables making sure everyone was happy & making food suggestions. The paella was great, and they will make it anyway you'd like it. The star of the... More

Girls night out! We were greeted immediately( we did not have reservations), but room was made for us. The owner is so nice and the wait staff meet every need. There was entertainment last night, and he was great also. The meal began with some sangria, and we decided to try five different types of tapas. We had shrimp with... More

Three of us took advantage of the three-course Restaurant Week $27.95 paella dinner. The fourth enjoyed an excellent salad and empanadas. Appetizers were well portioned and very tasty. The paellas were a little light on proteins but stocked with vegetables. Empanadas were large and chock full of beef or chicken. Deserts included a wine-soaked pear that was a delicious meal... More

It was my birthday, and this place made it one of the best ever! We had a fabulous ceviche, Galician white bean soup, and a great seafood platter. Along with the super delicious red sangria, hey you might as well order by the pitcher like we did :-) Our party of four chose to sit at the bar, and the... More

Wife and I visited Espana a second time, along with family members. Just like our first visit, we were not disappointed. We were greeted and seated by the owner/manager. He apologized profusely for the AC not working in the back dining room. We wanted a quiet dining experience, so we decided to stay there, ceiling fans were sufficient. Three of... More

My wife and I had dinner at Espana's Tapas Bar tonight, out daughter had given us a gift certificate. I love Paellas and this is what I wanted to try here. From the outside it does not look like much, but once inside you are greeted by a very friendly gentleman (may be the owner). He asked if we wanted... More

This tapas restaurant was a great choice while we were on our way to the ferry. We had a tight timeline, but the food was fast and fresh and the service was really good. I would love to come back, relax, and enjoy the nice atmosphere and great food again.

OMG! Delicious and custom created. Thursday night $ special for paella with coffee and dessert. Poached pears in wine, crema Catalano and yes....hot rice pudding. So good. I am so surprised that this place isn't packed. Everything we have tried is delicious, fresh and hot (except for the gazpacho). Steaks, cheeses, soups all excellent. Albariño and Tempranillo house wines delish.... More

Although the wait staff and owner were very nice, I found the food to be unimpressive. We were told this was very authentic Spanish food. I have no reason to doubt that, but it didn't make me want to rush to the airport and fly to Spain. Perhaps authentic Spanish food is not for me. I think a menu with... More
