Description: Near Antwerp Cathedral find for 24 years the best Tapas bar in Antwerp. The Tapabar began first with the introduction of the Spanish snacks (tapas) in Antwerp, and is still known as the first true Tapabar 't city. Our specialties are classics such as homemade sangria and paella, but also our tapas tables containing a mix of Spanish delicacies are very popular. We also have a separate smoking room and it's nice to eat after drinking a pousse-cafe or fresh cocktail. So be sure to take a look and be convinced by the best tapas' t town!

we stumbled across this place by accident,the décor of the restaurant is rustic Spanish.we ordered a starter of fried calamari rings with alioli and the house white wine.both were excellent the calamari was cooked to perfection.after this we both ordered the warm tapas mix in which you get small dishes of warm tapas.we had pimentos,patat bravas,meatballs in tomato sauce,mushrooms,roast chicken legs.along with this we had a basket of bread,alioli and the house red wine bordon crianza which for only 3 euros a glas was stunning.this restaurant is on par with any Spanish restaurant we have eaten in in spain.the next time we visit Antwerp again it will be the first place we will go back to for food.

Even in Bergium , we could feel the real Spain!. Great food and good atmosphere, indeed!
We were struggling to decide the food from the menu(no English), but the people working there speak Spanish and help us to decide the foods.

We went with a group of colleagues to this place in the center of Antwerp. We had the big menu with mussels ans lot's of other very tasty things. Be careful they serve strong sangria... :-)
Atmosphere was great, the people working there are so nice and friendly and the food was perfect... An evening well spent and definitively a place to come back to

I got to know this place through a friend of my in the Antwerp, we managed to reserve a table for 7 and have a mixture of nice Spanish foods; since we didn't know much of their names, we set a budget limit and they brought us the mixture of everything!! it was super fun to have them all together to have a taste.
More important one was the birthday surprise part which one of the guys there, namely Andreas, helped us a lot to set it up. he even put some fireworks on the three-floor desserts and set the birthday music, everything went perfect and my girl friend really got surprised! I definitely recommend this place to hang out with friends ;) Cheers

This is one of the best restaurant i have ever seen. We were 8 friends and the menu was only in dutch, so the waiter suggested us to order the mix of all of them to share together. We all enjoyed our delicious dinner. Staffs also were very kind. One of them (i think named andres) translated all the menu for us :) ) overall, it was one of the best restaurants and i highly recommend it to everyone!
