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

Just enjoyed lobster and shrimp paella and the chef's choice dinner. Deliciousness! The flamenco dancer and live music added romance to the ambiance. Impressive amigos...impressive.

My friend and I lived in Spain for a couple of years so when I visited her with my father, she took us to this restaurant. The employees where Spanish from Galicia. We ordered the pan con tomate - didn't come with very much, small paella, two other things I can't remember and churros for dessert. The food was good... More

We had tapas tastes and they were all delicious. The stuffed date, the stuffed piquillo pepper, garlic shrimp, lollipop lamb chop, skewered beef, manchago cheese. There was so much we should not have ordered a full meal also, but we did and it was delicious. We had rice with shrimp and calamari, and black rice with shrimp. We took most... More

The tapas were great as well as the music and flamenco dancing. Service was also good. This was a fun and different restaurant and I would defiantly go again.

Tapa Papa Frita features a very large menu of small plate items (tapas). I like this format very much and the quality of the food was excellent. On the other hand our server (who was very pleasant) would disappear for extended periods of time. And then one of the tapas we ordered did not materialize for more than 40 minutes.... More

We were super hungry and needed to find a quick place to eat and tapas papa frita looked like the perfect outdoor environment. Unfortunately, they couldn't seat us, so we had to sit at the bar. The bartender was super attentive and while we weren't drinking, we watched him sample small tastings of wine and alcohol before serving them, which... More

Tapas, one of our favorite discoveries on our first trip to Spain, decades ago. In subsequent trips, we came to love the style even more and the variety never ceases to amaze us. The food experience coupled with the normal high energy atmosphere and the caring proprietors, routinely makes this a favored dining decision. Tapas Papa Frita brings all the... More

The show was fantastic. The tapas menu is endless, so I suggest you study the menu online before you even get there. The food was pretty good and it is in a very nice area with many other shopping and restaurant ops. It can get a little pricey, but remember, the show is "free"
