Spain is rich in culture and along with Italy has a distinctive cuisine that most can identify with. Our modern Tapas selection includes our favourite dishes we have discovered either over the last couple of decades visiting Spain or from some of our friends in the UK & USA who have made their own versions of classic dishes or come up with something completely new. Enjoy a few dishes each and share with others to make your experience with us a truly Iberian one.
