“Wonderful Tapas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2013

My wife and I went to Cafe Azafran for a casual date night. The atmosphere has an intimate and romantic feel to it. We ate tapas and they equal any we had in Spain. We look forward to going back for their paella night. This is a great place to go and enjoy being with someone you love, but not for children.

“Lunch does not disappoint!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2013 via mobile

Mediterranean style menu, very fresh and well seasoned foods.
We enjoyed lunch very much - soup and sandwiches.
First visit to the one in Rehoboth, as we usually visit the sister restaurant in Lewes (15 minutes away). I like the Rehoboth restaurant better as far as layout. More seating, nice covered porch area.
No regrets for dining here...

“Outstanding Tapas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

We had been to Cafe Azafran in Lewes, Delaware many times for tapas year round and Thursday paella nights during the summer. The Lewes restaurant does not serve dinner in the winter season anymore but lucky us, the one in Rehoboth does. We went with another couple and had a selection of tapas. But first came the hot out of the oven, crusty bread with a really nice dish of olive oil for dipping and a large portion of mixed olives. Here is what we tried: The calamari with the aoli was crispy, non greasy and well seasoned. The La Mancha plate with manchego cheese, thinly sliced chorizo and serrano ham along with romesco sauce was served nicely and an extremely generous portion and the baked goat cheese gratin was lovely but both would be better served by the wonderful bread than the ho-hum pita they both came with. We all stuck to the bread and left the pita. The last tapa we enjoyed was the grilled artichoke pesto bruschetta. We all agreed it was our favorite. The baby artichoke was grilled to perfection as was the bread. The pesto enhanced the flavors perfectly. We were also impressed with the chef's willingness to divide the seafood tarragona (bouillabaisse) big plate into two servings and a tasty dish it was. We are happy to know that in addition to serving paella on Thursday in Lewes, paella will be served in Wednesday in Rehoboth. Can't wait for summer!
