We had a group of four with one strict GF diner, and no problem finding enough variety for the group and meeting GF needs (including GF-dishes that didn't involve meat). Gambas al ajillo, patatas bravas, gorditas, costillitas, alcachofas, and a few others: all very good. I rarely get sangria, but Tapeo's was very good: not too sweet (fairly dry, actually),... More

This is a good palcase to share with frineds and to sit in the patio in a summer night. The food is good, very nicely prepared (Iknow Spanish food, I have been to Spain). The wine list is extnesive and the prices are reasonable. You can eat a little or a lot, that is the beauty of tapas.

Great spot to sit outside and people watch when the weather is nice. Most of the menu items are small plates, order several at a time, sample and share. Everything I have tried here has been very good but I can especially recommend the garlic shrimp, the potatoes and the short rib. The sangria is quite good too.

What an awful night!! We specifically made 6PM reservations and asked for outdoor seating. We had 8PM show and wanted to allow enough time. When we arrived at the restaurant (on time) we were told there was a 20 minute wait for outdoors or we could be seated right away inside. We decided to wait the 20 minutes to eat... More

The best mango-blueberry sangria ever! Best place to visit during the summer when you can sit outside for a lovely view of the harbor.

The tapas were great, we got 2 and 1 was great and other was good. The paella was great and it came out pretty fast as we told out waiter that we were in a rush to see a show, it took about 35 minutes as expected from when we put in our order. The service was good and the... More

Went here with two friends last weekend. It was nice so we sat on the patio - keep in mind you are require to get two tapas per person to sit on the patio which they warn you about before you are seated. This seems very reasonable given that you are likely going to want two per person regardless. Tapas... More
