“Gluten free Tapas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

I recently visited this restaurant with my family for an early evening meal. We were welcomed warmly and given help with the extensive list of tapas. We shared several dishes all of which tasted delicious and the added advantage for me was that each dish stated if it was gluten free so I was able to choose those suitable for a coeliac diet. By the time we left it was very busy and nearly all the tables were full. Obviously a popular place. I would definitely recommend.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014

We started going here on Thursdays for the music and we've been back every Thursday night for a few months.

Food is great, service is great and the two brothers that run it are always welcoming.

“An early evening meal with my wife”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014

We decided to go to Tunbridge Wells for an early meal on a Saturday, 5.15pm. Having gone to Zizzis with a voucher, being sat at a table and then ignored, we decided to leave and try somewhere else. What a good move, we went Soprano wine bar and had some shared tapas and a bottle of Prosecco. The food was excellent, the service friendly and efficient. The only issue was £33.45 for a bottle of average Prosecco. That said, we would definitely go back there and have in fact, booked to return with friends later in the year..

“OK but not the best Tapas Bar I’ve been to.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014

table but it is near the back of the bar and somewhat out of the way.
The Soprano Tapas & Wine Bar is a fairly average restaurant with nothing wrong with it but it’s nothing special. The food is the usual Spanish type fare found in the UK and indeed is quite good. The menu is extensive with a good choice of dishes and the service is friendly and in the main efficient but I found there was very little atmosphere, this may not be the case on Thursdays when they have live entertainment. The house wine is more than acceptable and the prices reasonable.
