“Outstanding experience!”
Reviewed January 8, 2012

Everything about our lunch was fantastic - the quality and variety of the food, the excellent house red and the relaxed (but very attentive service). This was our first visit and the three of us were unaimous in praise of this outstanding and unassuming restaurant. At the end of the meal we immediately made reservations for dinner in a few weeks time - we cannot wait to return.

Dine here and enjoy the experience of food cooked and prepared to perfection, served in an relaxed setting.

“Best lunch we have had since the last time we were there.”
Reviewed January 8, 2012

Great welcome from Phil which set the scene for a fantastic lunch.
This was our "Christmas meal" out and we chose the Tapas bar because we had all enjoyed it so much the last time.
The food was full of flavour, lots of it and very varied to suit all tastes.
This time we were offered pudding but we had to wait quite a while before we could manage it. All plates were scraped clean.
Phil joined in the jokes and helped make it a lunch to remember.

“Fabulous......Fabulous......Fabulous”
Reviewed January 7, 2012

Myself and my Bother recently treated our parents to a meal out in the Tappas Bar in Broughty Ferry as a Pre Christmas Treat and i have to say it was just FABULOUS!

There is a wide variety of Dishes to cater for the fussiest of people(my Dad being one of them!!!!!
My Mum and Brother have eaten Tappas in different corners of the world and they agreed that this Tappas is definitely the best
It is very good value for money..... The food just kept coming and coming.... All the dishes were full of flavour. I enjoyed everything we were served..... particularly the Pork and Tomatoe dish and the Gorgeous cheese cake to finish!!

Our server Phillip was very helpful and made us feel very welcome. Keep up the good work... we will definitely be back :)

“Probably the best eatery in the area!”
Reviewed January 7, 2012

This little restaurant took us by surprise. It turned out to be one of the best dining experiences I've had. The food was a wonderful selection of tapas that kept on coming for as long as you were hungry, and this was all for a set price of just £15! All dishes were made from seasonal produce and the menu changes daily on the basis of the produce available. We ate a selection of meats, fish and vegetables. Each dish was wonderfully explained by the owner/ manager Phil who made our dining experience wonderful as he was so attentive and entertaining in attending to ourselves and the other customers. I also have to thank Phil for rescuing us from complete embarrassment as our dining experience ended with much laughter and hilarity!! An excellent and relaxing evening out that we were surprised that we'd taken nearly 3 hrs to eat our meal. I SHALL be back and I'll be singing praises to friends over this little gem of a restaurant!

“Great meal, very satiafied”
Reviewed January 7, 2012

My other half and I went to the Tapas Bar following an impromtu walk into the ferry an were bery pleased with the meal. The set meal is an amazing offer where for £15 the staff will bring you food until you ask them to stop.

With every round of food you are presented with 2-3 plates of fantastic food. Not only was everything very tasty but it also allowed us to enjoy things we normally wouldnt try.

We left the Tapas bar, full, happy and feeling like we got more than our money's worth. Can't recommend highly enough.
