Pamplona is my favorite place in Lafayette, LA. Having lived a stint in Madrid, Spain during college, I am brought back to having fun. As soon as you walk in and see pictures of handsome bull fighters and the Massive bull in the front area you know what type of food this will be. However, besides just the basic tortilla... More

I'm not sure how I feel about this place, to be honest. I mostly enjoyed myself except for the fact that each dish takes about 25-35 minutes and they suggest you order one at a time. I arrived starving and ordered a few things right away...by the time the food arrived, I ate it in less than a minute and... More

I love the small plates. Bacon wrapped dates, hanger steak, duck fat fries and a bunch of other delicious specialties. Jerry Young et al have hit a home run. I love this place for business lunch or date night with wife. Excellent food. Excellent service. Nice atmosphere.

Its a different kind of menu at Pamplona. If you are not apt to trying new things and venturing out, then this place might not be your food choice. The drinks, however, are some of the best. Well made and taste great. If you don't enjoy the food that's okay because the bar will well make up for it.

We were fortunate enough to just stumble on Pamploma and just loved it. Excellent cocktails, good wine list and a great selection of tapas dishes served by knowledgeable staff. The atmosphere is warm and friendly, the staff are great.

Generally very tasty with good service. Not particularly good value, somewhat pricey for portion size.

Actually was our second choice based on TA reviews. Man this was a good choice! Tapas are a mix of old standards and new cuisine. Loved every morsel we ordered. Good wine list with reasonable choices. Service was attentive but not rushed. Very cosy feeling. Would go back.
