While walking Main Street my Fiancé and I stopped outside to look at the menu. When a group of locals exclaimed "This place is fun.. try it out"! So we did.. from the house Sangria, amazing cod fingers and homemade Hummus and Tabouli to the gluten free lemon cheesecake. Our server Carolyn was top shelf and dead on with her... More

Really a lovely restaurant. Different from most in town. Everyone from business suits to casual. We split 6 tapas. They were great. Not cheap. But I believe Tuesday night they are half price, and Wednesday is drag queen karaoke. No lie. We left before things got started.

Had tapas at the bar for Happy Hour. A terrific way to try many items as they are half price from 4:30 to 6:00. Really liked the broiled scallops. The bartenders are friendly and fun!

The food is exceptional. The best fries in history, truffle oil will ruin you for all others. Staff is more than welcoming and the entertainment is year round. Embargo is our favorite place for Wednesday nights. BEST karaoke night in town. Food, drinks, and fun you can't go wrong.

I have had some really great tapas during my travels and was pleasantly surprised by my experience at Embargo tonight. This place came highly recommended by Claudia from the Doubletree down the road. We had the lamb chops, scallops with sweet basmati rice, the churrasco with chimichurri, and escargot. The food came out quickly. We enjoyed every bite while a... More

Very nice ambiance and vibe. Half price apps are great and gives the guest a way to try different dishes at an excellent price. NIce wine list. Most staff are friendly and helpful. I go there about once/week for an app (or two) and a drink.

Good tapas--fun to share small plates--and a nice big bar. Well-located on Main Street with some outdoor seating and reasonable prices. A favorite.

This restaurant is right downtown Hyannis so expect to pay for location. This is a tapas restaurant/bar so they have small meals that you can share or eat yourself. The prices were high for the food you received and the drinks are weak, so order beer/wine if you want to enjoy a drink. They have an extensive martini/drink menu with... More
