“A taste of Spain!”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

A cute little place in Colorado Springs and a nice change from the big chain restaurants! I love tapas because you can decide how much you spend. Portions are just enough for sharing with another person. I took my friend there for her birthday and we each ordered 3 tapas items, we had nothing left over! We also had the delicious toast with dark chocolate and fresh strawberries for dessert, so good!! The food came fast, the waitress was wonderful and she did not rush us out the door after we were done, only coming by to offer us more water. A great place and a must visit! We will go again and again.

“Interesting menu, delicious and gluten free, too!”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

Eating at Tapateria was a refreshing change from the endless chain restaurants that we had eaten at on our vacation to Colorado. We ordered round after round of interesting tapas and enjoyed our meal in the cozy ambience of this restaurant with its brick walls, tiled ceiling and bright tablecloths. The staff was friendly and attentive, embracing my son's life threatening peanut allergy and Celiac with great care. It was no trouble to find him gluten free (GF) food as everything on the menu is GF. What a treat for him! The rest of our family does not follow a GF diet but we found that the bread products were delicious! Tapateria is located in Old Colorado City which is a great place to find interesting local dining establishments and coffee shops.

“Solid Spanish tapas. Very good cured meats and cheeses from Spain.”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

The cured meats and cheeses were the high point. The other tapas were good -- and tasted authenticity Spanish. The only thing missing was bread like one would get with tapas in Spain. We were happily surprised by the jamon serrano made in Colorado. We will eat here again when we pass through Colorado Springs.

“Great for Gluten Free”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

I was so excited to try this gluten free tapas bar. There is not one thing on the menu that contains gluten. And for those of you who can eat gluten, please don't let that deter you from eating here! You will absolutely not feel deprived! The four small plates we shared were all amazing. I especially liked the lamb sausage. Not a meat eater? They also have many menu items marked vegan. The sangria was also tasty. Wonderful place for a light lunch after a morning of shopping in Old Colorado City.
