Came into tapas papa frita for lunch and it was fantastic!! Aaron was a great server and the food was fantastic!

Went to this facility during AZ restaurant week. The restaurant was maybe half full. And we waited 50 minutes for our appetizers! This is after I asked for our waiter who forgot to put in the order. We ended talking home the dessert 2 hours later. I blame management, read you customers experiences and reviews. Do they care?

The food is ok but what i really loved is that they have live flamenco show on friday nights. There are also some tables outdoor with candles and a gentle mist ( which is great for the hot Arizona nights) which can be very romantic

The flamenco dancers were our favorite! The two gentlemen playing Spanish guitar were amazing and the dancers took such pride in their craft that I feel fortunate to have witnessed it. I definitely enjoyed my paella and sangria, but the tapas were outstanding! You must get the goat cheese portobello mushroom!

The food is good, not great, but the atmosphere and authentic flamenco music make up for the food. No fish ctoquetas, though.
