“Unpolished but the food does not disappoint”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

Situated right on the marina at Telaga Harbour Tapaz offers a wide range of Spanish-styled tapas. Any restaurant that offers tapas should be judged on their paella and Tapaz does a great job. Plenty of seafood, perfectly cooked rice and served in a paella pan for that added authenticity. Other dishes that I tried were also good - spicy potatoes and chicken wings. They have a wide and diverse menu offering and I would have liked to have tried more dishes. The location is a bit off the beaten track - unless you are staying at the harbour - and the service and ambience probably needs a bit of work but otherwise I had a very relaxed and enjoyable meal.

“A taste of Spain”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

A bottle of Spanish wine and 7 tasting plates set us back just under RM200, and that was all we needed for dinner after a hard day lying by the pool at the nearby Danna resort.

Smart service, outdoor dining overlooking some impressive boats in the marina, as the sun set on a warm tropical night... life doesn't get much better. They also have a Mediterranean menu of full-scale meals, plus kids offerings.

“Nice, but average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

We visited Tapaz during our stay in Langkawi in May. The food was quite nice, but we had a mishap where we were served rancid chicken liver pate which left a foul taste in our mouth. The manager did change the pate, but didn't offer to take it off the bill. Perhaps in hindsight we should have asked him to. We had a very apprehensive night waiting to see if we were going to get sick after tasting that!

Otherwise the other food we had was quite nice, we had a burger and a 1/2 lobster tail which was delicious. The atmosphere is nice with outdoor dining and marina views.

The staff weren't very attentive, my husband had to stand up to get their attention a few times.

Overall, an average sort of place!

“Lovely Tapas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

Staff are exceptionally friendly and there are great views over the harbour making for a great atmosphere.

Food is great and you can order as much or as little as you like. We only tried the tapas but were not disappointed and each dish was very tasty. Prices are good.
