Guapas Tapas is a very nice place to enjoy a drink and some great tapas. The patio provides sufficient shade, and you can just order as many small plates for the table as you like. Very enjoyable. Service is very good to excellent.

Been here before and was not disappointed. Food was good, staff very friendly and informative. Atmosphere relaxing. Good location in the SJC area. Small portion of PAELLA was nicely done. Good beverage selection. A bit Pricey.. But not out of order for the location.
