Tapas stands for small portions! If your not hungry but feel like blowin some cash on appetizers then this is your place. No real food can be found here.

We visited Moab on Dec. 28, 2013. The entire town was surprisingly busy during the snowy off-season and this restaurant, which we learned opened last March 2013, likely was not prepared for the number of visitors it would have in the off-season! It was slightly freezing in the restaurant, too, and everyone seated and waiting, including me, kept their coats and hats on! Note for the Sistas for next year, (as this is a great place to eat in Moab): You two should hire more help! On the flip side, the two sister's couldn't have been more gracious, despite the fact that they were clearly overworked and understaffed the night we were there. They have a huge beautiful bar area, but had no bartender to serve drinks or even seat people to eat at the bar, as there were many of us waiting for tables. Admittedly, the wait was very long, but well worth it in the end, as there were not many other options in town that served food that picky healthy vegetarians like us, could eat and feel good about afterward. The energy in the place was a bit frazzled, due to the fact that they clearly could not keep up with the orders and the people waiting at the door and serving those already sitting. Nothing a little restaurant rehab can't fix with time, tho! I think this place deserves a chance, as the food is very good. Management just needs to be worked on to get it a 5 star rating. And I definitely believe they can do it!

This new restaurant run by two sisters originally from Vermont shows a lot of originality in its cooking. We started out with a beet salad, onion soup, and a Cesar salad. All were delicious. I particularly liked the big chunks of beets mixed with pomegranates and goat cheese. The onion soup was salty, but that is because of the cheese topping. The mains of a seafood Angel pasta on a Tom Yum base was also well done with the pasta cooked perfectly- not an easy job given the fine ness of the pasta. Excellent home made desserts of a raspberry sorbet and a gluten free flour less chocolate cake. I highly recommend this restaurant- I am astounded by the overall excellence given that there is a single chef in the back preparing all. The decor is funky and humorous. Definitely worth a visit even if it is just for the warm welcome,

During my five days using Moab as a base of operations to explore Utah's National and State parks we landed at Twisted Sistas' Cafe two nights - and it would have been more if they had been open the entire week.

The sisters involved run a creative kitchen with a lively atmosphere. It's a casual place where locals and tourists alike are welcome and immediately feel at home. There's a real pride of ownership, with one sister at the front of house and the other masterfully managing the kitchen.

For starters on the first night I had the curry coconut fried shrimp (came with 6 to a portion) and on the second I tried both the Roasted beet and pomegranate salad, and the spicy coconut shrimp bisque. The beet salad was fresh, the beets perfectly cooked so that they were still crunchy and full of flavour, with the pomegranate adding a hint of sweetness that was a perfect complement to the salad and crumbled feta cheese. The spicy coconut bisque with a parmesan crisp is inspired, spicy but not 'hot', with lots of shrimp.

The first night I had the Seafood Tom Yum, a mix of calamari, scallops and shrimp in a thai coconut broth that was aromatic and delicious. Served over angel hair pasta this is almost more of a soup, it was perfect for a winter's evening. It was spicy and yet didn't overwhelm the delicate seafood, but provided a perfect compliment. I was encouraged the finish the evening with the Chocolate peanut butter pie; made in house with their own peanut butter ganache this was another perfectly balanced treat.

The second night I had the almond crusted salmon with a nutty wild rice pilaf and asparagus. The salmon was cooked through but still moist and tender, the rice had a fantastic flavour and the vegetables were perfectly prepared. My friend had the seared tuna salad for an entree the second night, followed by the chocolate peanut butter pie again and a long conversation with owners Julie and Terri Gutterson who made us feel like family and not just patrons.

We had local craft beers both nights, great company, and some of the best food of our two week trip. A must in Moab.
