We have been here before, however this time we were with family and friends celebrating my husbands birthday, I had been speaking to Adrian one of the owners before hand about my booking and changes within my group, he couldnt be more understanding and accommodating,...Carlos the other owner is the best host you could ever meet, he gives you a back story of the business , then tells you about the food... which is AMAZING, cooked fresh to order such a wide varity to suit everyone. All the team are amazing and attentive, they made us feel so welcome and made our night so special. I would recommend Wapa Tapa in a heart beat. Thanks for a great night Adrian and Carlos... see you in November! ❤More

We had no reservation but the staff were extremely accommodating and friendly. We decided to have the Chef’s Selection of tapas for €40, which included sangria - amazing value!!! And by far the best meal I’ve had in the yumbo centre. 100% recommend this restaurant....And the owner is amazing - so friendly!!More

We were determined to return to Wapa Tapa after a 3 year absence - and we were treated like royalty! Everyone is so friendly and the food is excellent. The service was swift and efficient. They have moved to a slightly larger corner site in...the Yumbo and there is a great atmosphere. Adrian, Carlos and the team do a great job. Good choice of wine too. We shall be back!More

Don't let the surrounding area put you off. This restaurant is a real gem and well worth a visit. You'd probably need to book in high season but we were lucky and they had a table. The owner/manager was so informative and passionate and the...food totally lived up to the hype. The Korean wings were fabulous but everything was great. Don't miss it!More

Food was average but the service was very poor. One 1hr and 20mins to get the tapas and then very slow after that. Got to the point where I just told them to cancel the rest. They did agree to give me all the subsequent...tapas for free but still included it on the bill. They did rectify. They explained they had issues with the kitchen and this was the reason behind the issues on this night.More

What an absolute joy to visit Wapa Tapa again. I still maintain this is one of the best restaurants in Gran Caneria and certainly one of my favourites in the world. Adrian and Carlos put their heart and soul into providing the best food and...service they can. The food goes without saying, is tasty, well balanced, authentic and has the Wapa Tapa twist. I am not going to add any energy, to the negative reviews that are left here but find them quite unfair. This is a very popular restaurant and every time I have been I can honestly say I have been impressed. My advice is book, your visit, enjoy the wonderful atmosphere and the food as it comes out from the kitchen. ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND. (P.s save room for the almond tart!)More

Welcome revisit. Following a 2 year absence we were pleased to visit Adrian and the team in the new larger restaurant. Food and service are still fabulous. Recommend book a table a couple of days ahead so as not to be disappointed. A true Spanish...experience.More

ADVISE TO OTHER GUESTS - YOU MUST MAKE A RESERVATION. Wapa Tapa is extremely popular and I doubt you'll be able to eat there without one. THE best restaurant within the Yumbo Centre without a doubt. Carlos & Adrian are the most wonderful combination of...people, who put there heart and soul into there business, and thats why it's such a success. We always book two meals here at Wapa Tapa before we depart for our Holidays in Gran Canaria, one at the beginning of the week and one at the end. This time we loved experiencing the slightly updated menu along with the specials - The Asian Beef Skewers were to die for. The service is always faultless and the staff are just wonderful. The quality of the meal is reflected in the price, but here I don't think you can put a price on quality, a evening out for two of us was approx. €120. Thank you so much Carlos, Adrian & Team - We'll see you all again soon!More

Our friends recommended Wapa Tapa and we are so glad they did! By far the best restaurant in playa del ingles, (possibly Gran Canaria) and better than most in the U.K. too. Carlos and Adrian are a fantastic team, their passion for delicious food and...amazing customer service really shines through. As you would expect a restaurant of this quality does get very busy so it’s advisable to book ahead. Thanks Wapa Tapa, you deserve 10 stars!More

The place didn’t disappoint, the food was delicious (we had a selection of hot tapas) and we loved the wine pairing suggestions. One of the owners who also serves tables, made a point of coming to speak with us and check everything was ok with...our meal. He also explained some of the dishes we were having. Later his partner who is the Chef also came to our table to ask . It was a great opportunity to get to talk to the owners and find out what they were trying to achieve. We wholeheartedly recommend this place.More

Delicious, freshly prepared food with friendly and welcoming staff. We ordered a wide selection of tapas and it was all great. The kids especially loved the chicken wings. Sadly, we were too full to eat dessert! Next time.
