“Terrific Tapas”
Reviewed November 7, 2013 via mobile

Nestled next to the Sofitel hotel, this Tapas bar was very handy to where we were staying.

Being able to walk in off the street without a booking suits the style, layout and feel of the restaurant. Easy, relaxed, great atmosphere.

The service was excellent. A beautiful young lady, who happened to be Spanish (how authentic), walked us through the specials so well that we selected 3 dishes before even looking at the menu.

It was hard to pick a winner among the dishes, all were unique and tasty. The spreadable salami was delicious, the scallops were divine, and the quail was unexpected and exquisite.

Five dishes and a jug of Sangria for $97 was great value.

“A taste of Spain in Broadbeach”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

Having recently travelled through Spain, was keen to compare how an Australian based Spanish tapas restaurant would stack up against the Tapas restaurants in Spain. Conclusion - Espana Tapas Bar stacks up very well indeed.

The menu provides great variety depending on what you want to experience. The dishes were well prepared and were delivered within good time whilst enjoying a glass of spanish wine (or two). Staff are quite helpful with their recommendations. Highly recommend the mushrooms and the meat balls.

Tip: would suggest sitting at the bar to eat and drink. Gives you the opportunity to interact with the great staff and watch the chefs at work.

“Fantastic night out”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

Had just been there on the 30th October 2013. It was a start of a great night as the group I was with was doing a progressive dinner at different restaurants in Broadbeach, so we started here with entrée and ended up staying for the mains instead as we ate so much tapas and it was all fantastic and very tasty. Highly recommend this place, with great service and food.

“Good Food Good Service”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

Good Food Good Service comes at a price. Didn't take bookings so you will have to wait on a busy night. Near to playground so can be noisy.
