Description: Eclipse Spanish Tapas Bar & Restaurant is a unique addition to our Indiana community. We are a small, independently-owned and operated restaurant in downtown Evansville, located on Fourth Street, near The Ford Center and The Victory Theatre. Eclipse offers a warm, cozy, romantic and relaxed ambience. It reflects the Spanish romance and unique eclectic concept of dining. Enjoy a variety of tapas with our famous house sangria or a glass of wine from our selection of vineyards. Eclipse Tapas Bar & Restaurant provides downtown Evansville with a cultural experience of the cuisine and traditions from Spain. The Spanish word for tapas means "lid". The nation's obsession with these flavorsome dishes began hundreds of years ago when Andalusian innkeepers used slices of bread to cover the glasses of wine. Eventually slices of ham and cheese were added to the bread. Today, tapas has evolved from the arid landscape of southern Spain into a national obsession of endless variety. We hope you will enjoy the flavors and traditions of our heritage.

“small portions, overpriced”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

The atmosphere is very nice. Like all downtown places, no parking. We had the special, 3 other tapas and 2 glasses of wine. Our bill was $130. Had to stop on the way home.

“Delicious and fun.”
Reviewed October 21, 2012 via mobile

Greeted by a cozy (6-10 tables, plus a few outside) atmosphere was the beginning of a very pleasant experience. We enjoyed a total of 6 tapas plates (4 savory and 2 sweet) and left pleasantly full. The plates were distinct in their style and flavor, and all were delicious. We would recommend as a nice romantic place that is off the beaten path for this area.

Trip Advisor is right on. What an enjoyable evening, sitting outside enjoying a nice glass of wine and wonderful tapas. What a nice surprise to find delicious tapas served in Evansville, IN. Service was exceptional. You simply must try this gem.

“Decent Food but HORRIBLE service”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

Went here for a night out with friends. We ordered drinks and some different types of tapas. The waitress never offered us refills on our drinks and brought out the wrong food. We ate it because we didnt know it was wrong, but one of group asked where something that she order was. The waitress got extremely rude and told us that we would have to pay for both for her mistake.
One of our guest didnt tip because of the bad service and the waitress had the nerve to follow her outside and ask her why she didnt tip.
I would like to try it again because the food was decent but only if I knew that waitress was no longer employeed there.
