I was so excited to try this restaurant out!! I ordered the chicken (with the salsa) which came with rice and beans and plantains. My boyfriend ordered the Cuban sandwich. Both took over 45 MINUTES. Food was great - but I wouldn't wait again. Also service lacked. We waited another 15 minutes to get the servers attention to get the... More

Our hotel suggested we might enjoy this restaurant's food. We have taken a week of summer vacation in Delray Beach, Fl as a break from our mid-Atlantic area home turf since 2005. Delray Beach has completely changed over these eight years. Fortunately these changes have brought a multitude of new restaurants. And Papa's Tapas is the one of the bright... More

While house hunting in Delray with our cousins, my husband and I had one of our best dining experiences. We were first greeted by Yvette who treated us to a free pitcher of delicious red sangaria due to us having to wait for a table (the wait wasn't all that long). Upon being seated, we were then greeted by Yvette's... More

Papa's Cafe has changed its name to Papa's Tapas and moved to its new location at 259 NE 2nd Avenue in the trendy Pineapple Grove section of Delray Beach. The new place is roomier and more comfortable while the food and service remain wonderful. The red sangria is the best that we've had in sometime. Our entrees were delicious. We... More

I am from Texas and thought we would try Spanish instead of Mexican. We started with the best sangria EVER! Our appetizer was the sautéed mushrooms. OMG! Mushrooms, Spanish sausage, garlic, spices, to die for! I had a grilled bone in pork chop that was so tender that I could cut it with my fork. My wife had the Polo... More

Small family run Spanish restaurant. Visited last month. Service excellent. Sangria homemade, good, maybe a touch too sweet for my tasted. Prices reasonable. Next time I'll call ahead for the seafood paella. Food was plentiful and tasty.

Living in Delray, we've tried most of the restaurants around our town. Papa's is hands down one of our favorites. Lunch or dinner, Papa's has unbelievable food and great prices. We have tried about half of the items on the menu and loved EVERY one of them...especially the Sangria! We love everyone at Papa's!

Great food, friendly wait staff. This is a hole in the wall. If you don't know it's there you will possibly drive right by it. It's at the corner of Congress and Lake Ida in a little strip of what looks like Doctors offices. Try the Basa with green sauce yellow rice and beans.

Small town restaurant with the best service and great Paella ...... For the Paealla I recommend you call atleast 2 hrs ahead. For me it is a 45 min drive and I plan to do it atleast twice a month ... One of my Spanish freind says that the Paella is comparable to what he ate in Barcelona growing up... More
