“Excellent 21st birthday meal had here !”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Came to this fabulous restaurant for my friends 21st and will definitely be back soon. Had heard a lot of great reviews and it certainly lived up to my expectations ! Brilliant when you are with friends as you can share the dishes and talk about how amazing the food is. The waiter was such a personality and was very attentive. Loved it when he gave us malibu on our coconut ice cream desserts, tasted divine. Great value for money and a gem of a restaurant in Dundee !

“Excellent evening”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Whilst visiting friends in the area I was browsing Trip Advisor to find us a place to eat that evening, when I came across all the excellent reviews about this restaurant and booked a meal for that night, a Wednesday evening. I can say that The Tapas Bar deserves to be no 1 in the Dundee area and I agree wholeheartedly with all the other 5 star reviews. Any restuarant that has every table filled on a Wednesday evening has to be doing something right - and Philip and his staff know exactly what they are doing right and are doing it with passion and flair.

Keep up the good work- we had a great evening not just a great meal!

“Amazing Food & Great Service”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Visited with my hubby for the first time on Friday evening at 7.00pm. The food quite simply amazing. The dishes just kept on coming and the house red wine was delish! Great value for money.

The atmosphere of a restaurant is a biggie for us and we're certainly weren't let down here. The service was amazing, with the host giving us a run down on each dish as it was served without being intrusive.

The Tapas Bar ticks all the boxes and would be great for a variety of celebrations whether it be a romantic meal with a loved one or a brithday group celebration.

We will definately be back! If you've not been before, you don;t know what you're missing.

“Excellent food, excellent staff, will be back very soon!”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

I have eaten here twice in the past month and both visits have been excellent. On each occasion the food has been outstanding, differing on both trips but equally good. On our second visit there was a vegetarian in our party who was extremely well catered for. Phil and the rest of the staff were all so attentive and welcoming, explaining the dishes etc. The food is brilliant, as is the atmosphere and the staff. I will definitely be back very soon!

“Fantastic as ever.”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

I would like to thank phil, lucy and joanna for, once again, an excellent meal at the tapas bar. Lucy and Phil's knowledge on the dishes was incredible and added an authetic Spanish feel to the evening. The food was cooked to perfection, and all the staff we encountered were excellent. Once again, thank you all for a brilliant evening.
