Great food and value!

A must try if you are in or near the area... Or even if you have to travel a bit to get there. We tried 4 different tapas while my son ordered the steak. All were excellent. And at 12 euros a bottle of the house wine - a Tempranillo - is a steal!

We dropped into Tapes I Vins for lunch while driving through La Xara, it was completely unplanned and we were not disappointed. We decided to eat outside in the winter sunshine, which raised a few eyebrows! The restaurant was very busy with what looked like a lot of business lunches. We had a selection of items from the Tapas menu... More

The restaurant is very modern although a bit small. Is quite busy at lunch. Open only on Friday and Saturday nights, we visited for dinner on a Friday evening and were quite happy with the restaurant. Had a tapas selection for dinner, while they had a chefs special which consists of six different tapas dishes that the chef chooses each... More

Stopped off here for a spot of lunch. The atmosphere, food, wine and service were all top quality. Would definitely go back again because the price was amazing for the quality and quantity of food.

We have eaten there 3 times and we have always had delicious local dishes at very reasonable prices. You can take your own wine although they do sell good wine too.

Our second visit, and this time it was better than the first, if that is possible. Great concept of small tapas starters and a main course. We had the smaller 4 tapas selection and main, which was more than adequate. Certainly a place to revisit, and it will be on the list !!

Excellent high quality food produced and efficiently served by friendly, knowledgeable staff. Tables are covered with white linen tablecloths with white linen napkins in this wonderful restaurant hidden in La Xara. A varied menu offers a range of tapas and other dishes that really are all quite outstanding. Choose from the interesting and creative menu or go with one of... More

DO NOT be fooled by the name of this restaurant, this is definitely not your average Tapas bar. Great food by any standards. Fantastic experience especially if you share each dish to broaden the tasting experience. The Sashimi Salmon is amazing!

Any visitor familiar with this area will know that La Xara is one of those places you tend to go on the way to, or back from, somewhere more important! But in this drive-through village there is now a genuine reason to stop and park - at night at least - beyond the Mas Y Mas supermarket. Encouraged by enthusiastic... More

We don't know how and why we have missed this gem for so many years. We were invited to a 60th birthday lunch with several other friends and were so pleasantly surprised by the quality of food and the restaurant itself. Although quite small it seemed spacious and it was very busy on a Wednesday lunch time. We had the... More
