“Excellent Food, Great Atmosphere”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

The tapas bar is above the ferry inn pub. The small restaurant is cozy with a nice atmosphere as the owner makes you feel welcome straight away. We really liked the set up, a fixed menu with each dish explained to us, the food was gorgeous, cooked perfectly and packed full of flavour, and very well priced. It was my birthday and also our honeymoon, they made us feel very special and they even gave us a generous treat, thank you! We would certainly visit again and will be recommending the place to friends. It was full even on a week night so I would recommend booking.

“very dissapointed”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

We came here last month for my friends birthday there was 10 of us...and sorry to say was very dissapointed...
I had taken a balloon over the night before which wasnt on the table when we went in for our meal..I had to ask for it to be put on her chair...which kinda spoiled the moment...
We had been seated for about 15 minutes before anyone approached us regards drinks...we had to wait a further 40 minutes to get bread on the table and when we finally did get it it wasnt cooked and very doughy..
We waited at least another 20 minutes after that before eventually the food came out...wasnt at all what I expected.. alot of the food was.tasteless and far too salty..I have had spanish tapas in the past and the food we were served wasnt authentic tapas..
The wine is very expensive with not even the option of a house wine and the sangria was priced at £15.00 a jug...which wasnt great either and very overpriced...
I would have thought with a table of 10 the service would have been better but that was a let down also..
Out of all the girls there that night I dont think anyone will be dining here again....

“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!
