Description: It was on our trip to Spain when we were introduced to the meaning of "Tapéo"; we were hopping between different Tapas bars every night; mingling and meeting different people from all walks of life; having great conversations and sharing life experiences with total strangers… All this while having great "Tapas" that always came out at the right time to compliment yet another amazing glass of red Rioja… It was then, it is now, and will always be about having fun, feeling good, and being surrounded by good… That is what captured our hearts, and these are the memories that will stay with us forever… O&R

“Cozy place.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2012

Stopped in for a quick drink but ended up staying a bit and having a few more. Nestled on a cool little street, this place is very inviting, comfortable and dimly lit (which i love). It is mostly, if not entirely lit by candles. They have fantastic mojitos, sangria and other great happy hour deals. Friendly staff and the menu looked great, though we didn't eat this time. We will definitely be back soon. I think it would be great for a dinner date or even drinks with a few friends.

“Great tapas in a fun environment”

Simple and chic, I loved this bar - and the food was excellent. We had the tomato bread, chorizo, stuffed peppers and meatballs - deeeeeeelish!

“Brunch Heaven”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2012

Great little haven from the hot weather, although a little 'neat' on space. Very informal, great brunch with plenty of Mimosa's to top-up the tank.

Definitely recommend for a fun, lively occasion.

“BEST SANGRIA of my life”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2012

I went here last weekend for a birthday party and was blown away by the Sangria (we had red). You can tell at the first sip that it was made with VERY nice wine! There is nothing cheap about Tapeo and they most certainly cut no corners! I also highly recommend Chorizo here! We had one with Cinnamon and it was delicious! Their coconut ice cream was also out of this world I have had nothing like it ever! This is great for couples or a group!

“GO! GO! GO!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2012

This place is AWESOME! Great atmosphere, Intelligent and vivid and the food is delicious!
The music was appropriate and people didn't stop coming in, until late hours (we stayed there until 2am on Friday!).
After being slightly disappointment with the LES scene lately, my friends and I can definitely say that we found our new hot spot.
Our favorite dish was the Chorizo Al Vino, but everything else we had is highly recommended (Brochetas De Pollo, The Shrimps, the filled red pepper).
I gave it 4 stars and not 5 just because we were sitting with another couple in the same table (the place was packed!), but it actually ended up being a nice evening and we met a couple of new friends :).
Either way, I'm so happy we found this place,
check it out!
