Outstanding. One of the top 10 meals of my life thus far. Highly recommend allowing Chef to choose selection. The clams and the octopus were prepared in very subtly spiced and different tomato-based sauces, steak bites in mushroom sauce were tender and delicious. My favorite...was the grilled (to perfection) lamb with pistachio. Cocktails with unusual yet perfectly harmonized ingredients, long and rich wine list. Great colors and ambiance, spotless and well-appointed restroom. Highly recommended, we're sure to be back as often as we can.More

Totally enjoyable evening. All dishes were excellent and you can experience tastes from Spain, Italy and Hungary. Will definitely return. For tapas the portions are good.

We had a great experience at Tapassio. We had the "Trust the Chef" tapas menu and it was awesome. The service was also great. We have nothing bad to say about this place and we totally recommend it when in Budapest.

We are a couple with high culinary experience and expectations. Our review does not represent the average taste and level of finesse most expect when go out to eat. We choose this resto based on its high ranking and nice tapas pics We've found some...of the tapas excellent, others not that great. Those excellent were fried padron peppers, tripe with Parmesan, grilled lamb chops, goose liver in Porto wine (I would recommend oak aged calvados) . Those not that great could be improved with a little extra attention that is highly recommended at this price level. example: the chili garlic prawns .... a little bitter due to over-fried garlic. Red wine chorizo was somewhat anemic :( Wines selection is average somewhat overpriced (x3) Service was good intended but average, seemed to be understaffed and order handling got us two missed dished, one forgotten and arriving later at our request and one mixed up (we got a different dish of what we ordered). Service charge of 10% is automatically applied. At this price level, we expect better food and better service We give 4 stars acknowledging the staff's above average kindness.More

In the last few months I visited Tapassio several times and I was surprised that they could make my favorite dishes even better. I appreciated that the manager is asking for feedback from the guests and it seems they fine tune their menu and dishes....He said it's not a "fine dining" restaurant though I think it's an understatement. I actually liked all those nuances like the Maldon salt in their tuna tartare or the texture of the sauce with the chorizo. Not to mention their ice cream, which is five star, too.More
