Absolutely incredible. Food, wine, service. We worked our way through the tapas menu with the help of the incredibly knowledgeable server and had a great experience. We will go back anytime we are within 100 miles of this place. Cannot recommend it enough.

Owner, Javier, has a rich history of restaurants in the Roaring Fork Valley here and Tempranillo may be the flagship. The best experience is in the bar seated at the long, granite, island bar. Start with a beverage made by, Louise, a longtime favorite local bartender, then order from the Tapas menu. I make my dinner to share just from the Tapas menu. Even the side veggies served with the Tapas are phenomenal!

This is a sumptious restaurant in which the expectation is for a $50 meal. I ordered the Halibut Fillet, which came nicely seasoned on a bet of baby asparagus over roasted wedges of potatoes, garnished with artichoke leaves. Unfortunately, the Halibut was "tough", e.g, well overcooked. I hat further into the first half of the fillet hoping that perhaps the core was more moist, but it was not, and decided I was done.

The chef tried again. This time the initial mouthful was appropriate, tender and moist. However the second bit was still pink, and undercooked. This is a disappointment for which the owner (who was present) did not acknowledge.

Though I appreciate the chef making the effort, he does not have the patience to prepare a thick fillet slowly under genteel heat.

Fantastic menu. Paella was excellent, and is a great dish to share if you are also ordering tapas.

Food was very good, prices reasonable and service was excellent. Basalt is a very attractive small town away from the hubbub of Aspen and other resort communities. The tapas at Tempranillo were excellent.
