As the restaurant is in the Mark-city mall which is attached to the maze-like Shibuya station, this place is excellent as a meeting place. Out of towners can find the place if they follow direction and ask around. The price is reasonable and on weekends it is nicely crowded. Several types of pinchos is on the menu, but many other dishes come in appetizer sizes. If you'd like paella, remember to order early. It takes half an hour to prepare. If you are planning a sit down dinner, it is better to call ahead. Service is all right but tend to gets slower when crowded. Last time time I dined there, I did not have enough room for desert. I'd love to go back for some Creme Catalana.

Having lived in Spain for 6 years I know and love Spanish food, so I am always interested to try when abroad. Bikini Tapa offers an impressive mostly tapas oriented menu. All of the typical Spanish tapas you would expect and some Catalan dishes - the menu includes patatas bravas, jamón, queso, pan con tomate, paella, gambas al ajillo, boquerones, pimientos de padrón, chopitos (baby squid), and pintxos to name but a few!

Food is good quality and well presented but tends to be on the small side, which makes it feel more expensive. They should serve more pan con tomate with the jamón...

This was my 3rd visit with local colleagues, each time we have enjoyed a very social evening washed down by a couple bottles of vino. On the wine theme they offer a good selection, but like anywhere in Tokyo imported Spanish wine tends to be expensive, nevertheless the wine by the bottle is competitively priced. As a bonus they also have oroju blanco chupitos (shots) but no oroju de hierbas unfortuantely. If you like beer they have a selection of Spanish beers by the bottle San Miguel, Cruz Campo etc.

In the three visits the restaurant/bar has always been busy, the bar stool tables next to the bar are a little small if you are with company and order a good selection of tapas.

Will visit again.
