No reservations for this delightful Tapas restaurant, and nobody there before 5. At 5, there is always a crowd, which says something; and they're right. Excellent food in a delightful surrounding. I have no idea what it's like later on, because we have always (3 times last year) been at 5 on the dot, generally well before. Informed service. Some out of the ordinary servings, but all first class. Sure, the servings are very small, but that's what tapas is, not the usual Winnipeg helpings of too much (or much too much). The arctic char was far better than others I have had. It's not open for lunch.

Segovia is our go-to restaurant when visiting Winnipeg. Charming, warm and knowledgable servers combined with excellent tapas selections = many return visits from this table for two!

What an incredible restaurant. My wife was there in the spring, and couldn't wait to take me. Well we've been there 3 times in the past 6 weeks, and can't wait till the fall menu comes out. Every server we have had, has been incredibly helpful in letting us know how to order off the menu, and helping with the quantity of food that is suitable. This is a must for anyone from Winnipeg, or tourists. Too many good things on the menu to mention, just go there and try them all. Make sure you get there early as no reservations are taken.

The atmosphere is great! Fantastic music and quirky decorations. The waiters are helpful and seem to really know the food and love it themselves. Great wine selection in a variety of price ranges.

Their menu changes often and a few dishes friends recommended weren't available when we went but we found lots to recommend to others!

Some of the dishes we ordered were just amazing - like the ricotta gnudi, the potatoes bravas, chorizo with apples, and the ibiza ham croquettes. But a couple dishes were just okay like their version of bruschetta which tasted a bit like canned tomatoes and the somehow flavourless scallops (which did have an absolutely gorgeous sear on them). It's fun being able to order so many things though, since they're small sizes so we just put aside the dishes we didn't like and moved on to more.

The chocolate pretzel tart for dessert is fantastic! Sweet and salty perfection. But my husband's donut was undercooked in the middle so we didn't eat that gooey mess. The waiter was great about this though and took that off our bill. He offered us a free dessert too but we were too full anyway.

I don't know what people are talking about here when they suggest eating a snack before coming. That's crazy! We both left completely stuffed! I wish I could have eaten more!

We went late to avoid the infamous long waits with their no reservations policy, so we were able to be seated right away.

Overall a very enjoyable meal with some delicious dishes and a couple misses, but we are definitely going to return!

Great food and atmosphere. Staff were great. We had to head down the road for a drink while we waited for a table as the restaurant does not take bookings. It was noisey but the food made up for the noise.
