“Cozy atmosphere, good food but a bit pricey”
Reviewed May 9, 2014

My husband and I had dinner at El Tapeo last night. We had never been there before but we were pleasantly surprised. The room (downstairs) was small and cozy and the food was very good, especially the paella and the pimientos de padron. It was a bit expesive though - but so are most restaurants in Copenhagen.

“Won't be back”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

I'm a Spanish person visiting Copenhagen and I decided to try Spanish tapas in Denmark for the fun of it. Never again!
We order croquetas - only 5 small ones for 65kr. They had a really strange, strong and cheesy flavour (nothing to do with actual Spanish croquetas) but the worst is -- they were so obviously NOT handmade! From the taste and liquid flavour you could tell they had been purchased frozen elsewhere.

The wine was not great (for its 55 kr price) and the selection of Spanish beer was very limited (only 3 beers of the lowest range... and Paulaner!!!???)

Minus points for a menu that appeared to have been written by Google Translate, with lots of mistakes in Spanish, which did not make a very favourable impression...

To sum up: if i go missing, don't look for me in El Tapeo!

“No food.”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

Unfortunately I can't rate their food, because after we ordered, we waited over one hour, and when the food hasn't arrived yet, we desided to leave!

“A Cool and Relaxed Dining Experience”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

My family went to this restaurant because it was convenient to our apartment downtown. It was a nice find. The staff was attentive and helpful and the food was high quality and tasty. Prices were reasonable, or at least as reasonable as can be expected in Copenhagen. But the best feature of this restaurant is the atmosphere. It was decorated with traditional Spanish items - just like a tapas restaurant in the heart of Barcelona. This place was really comfortable. I'd definitely return next time I visit Copenhagen. Try the Sangria if you visit.
