“Inventive tapas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

I have tried this place several times during business lunch and dinner, and tried different tapas. I especially liked their tasty sauces/dressings they put on their salads (and burger one time!).

Food's always fresh and plentiful, but a bit pricey.

The aforementioned burger was really a superb one, and their salmon was delicious too. Also had a salad with fruits/veggies combo, to which I added some goat cheese and honey (or silan -- date honey, I forget), which was very tasty too.

“Israeli tapas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013 via mobile

From outside we thought it a better bet than the other eateries in the square and we were right. Delicious small plates ( eggplant carpaccio and gravlax on a soft little bun were standouts) and the bigger plates all very good and one could put together a satisfying meal without feeling stuffed.

“Excellent Tapas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013 via mobile

We ate at Tapaya several times and always enjoyed it. Today was one of the best. We had for starters Asparagus on a Tortia, and a marinated salmon in brandy and sugar on a home made roll and goat cream cheese. Both starters were excellent and the blend of tastes was perfect,
We also ate a pizza Bianca with porcini mushrooms and truffle oil which was also great. For dessert we had a brioche with olive oil ice cream which was interesting.
The highlight of Tapaya is the personal service, Omri the owner greeted us like family , he brought us our regular wine and recommended the new dishes, sat with us ver a glass of wine. He is really a great guy and makes one want to return again and again.

“An highlight for the tongue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

It is a Restaurant with Spanisch Tapas, in which the cook bought his own style into. Every single portion was something special. The dessert a highlight.
Definetly a restaurant I would recommend for culinary highlights!
