My sis and I were exploring Old Colorado City one morning and walked by Tapateria (they were not yet open). Menu looked interesting so we decided to come back later in the day for late lunch/early dinner. The food (and service) were out of this world. I always aim to eat healthy and this food was just that; Flavor was... More

We have eaten at many places featuring tapas or small plates, but TAPAteria has to be one of the best. We enjoyed 11 tapas which included 2 dessert ones plus 1 cocktail, & a carafe of blood orange sangria...all for a reasonable price. Every dish was a taste bud sensation & nicely presented. Service was good. Only regret is that... More

Located in a wonderful old building on Colorado Ave. Parked on the street - fortunate to find spot close to the restaurant. Small building that is compact but lots of character and nice ambiance. Went on a Saturday night and were lucky to be seated promptly. Wait staff was VERY pleasant and relational. Had multiple items - all well prepared... More

Hate to go against the tide of the other reviews here, but based on our visit today, sadly this is not a place we'd choose to go back to. Overall very disappointing. Four of us didn't get served so that we could all eat together. Plates of food came out quite randomly. There was hair is the food. The calamari... More

I am very sorry your experience was not up to what our customers routinely receive. There are no excuses for the food delivery and service gaps you experienced. Rest assured we will remedy them. The seating issue can be a problem both inside and on the patio due to the small size of the restaurant, but I am checking on... More

We visited for a business trip, but also a surprise baby shower for a coworker. They accommodated our large party of 12 and were very prompt in getting us our food and drinks. The service was great and all of the items that we tried were excellent. Highly recommend.

They have a really nice range of authentic Spanish tapas. We ordered our normal amount - about 6 different taps between the 3 of us. It was so yummy, we ordered 4 more. We sat in their back courtyard to enjoy the warm weather and we received service that was both friendly and efficient.

We stumbled upon this restaurant after visiting Manitou Springs. The restaurant decor is charming with brick walls and very old wooden floors and tin ceilings. We loved the Green olives stuffed with anchovies so much we ordered it twice. The Spanish Manhattan is a specialty drink of the house that shouldn't be missed. Also try the cheese plate - the...
