we had dinner here for the first time in October, 2014. We brought some friends, and we were all very happy. Good stiff drinks, a waiter who could describe the food, its flavorings and spices and the way it is prepared. The selection of taps specials and regular menu items was great with plenty of choices for all tastes. Would... More

We visited this place again after many years and food was excellent. Due to portion size and price, I would not recommend for a dinner spot. Excellent service and martinis were smashing. If you do go for dinner, plan on 2-3 plates per person.

My husband and I started with drinks, can't complain, though pricey, they were enjoyable. That's all I can say good about our experience. Noisy, not enough help, hard to get drink refills, meager portions (I know it's tapas) but after 5 selections, we left hungry, and very expensive. Save your money folks!

We visited as a large group (16 adults) and had no problem making a reservation. They have an extensive martini list, but they were all over priced. The tapas plates were very tasty, but the portions were small for the prices. Two martinis and 4 tapas plates per couple resulted in a $80 total bill without dessert. We all left... More

We first ate here in 2012. It was just ok. We decided to give it another shot this year. Totally different experience. Server was very helpful. Everything was delish! The asparagus/crab soup in particular. Martinis were yummy. Love the atmosphere here, as well.

Although we have been visiting OBX for the past 10 years (the last 8 in Corolla) we happened to find this "jewel" by chance when searching for different type of restaurant. We did not want to drive down to Duck and we were tired of the restaurants at TimBuckII. We have had taps before, but never visited a formal "Tapas... More

My husband and I had a wonderful meal here. Service was great - friendly and staff were very knowledgable and helpful. We had multiple plates that were all delicious. Try the quail mac and cheese or the buttery beef - both were outstanding. Extensive drink/beer/wine list with some unusual options - bartender very helpful with choices. Can't say enough good...

Among the Best in the Outer Banks. Dinners should know this is a tapas or my preferred name "meze" -- meaning small plates. You need to order 2 to 3 (or 4 to five for two people) to feel satiated. So, you need to have desire to like tasting several dishes as opposed to one super-sized meal. We had five... More

We decided to give it a try after reading their website - cocktails were fresh - but it went down hill after that. So disappointing to have spent $80 on 3 cocktails and very less than adequate food - that barely served two people. I was a bit disappointed by the 'not so great' service. We had to remind the...
