    Lovely little restaurant - enjoyed the prawns, chorizo, and spicy potato tapas. Sangria was also great (although a bit pricy). The side of bread was not very good though - quite hard (giving a slight stale impression).

    Basic Tapas bar, food was good not brilliant service was very spanish and needed at least an additional staff member to cope. A pain to have to go up to the bar every single time you wanted something. It was nice but not rushing back.

    there are several tables on the pavement so you can watch the street activity, and without background music - never programmed to suit everyone, so I don't know why they do it.

    There wasn’t enough staff to serve the customers, had to wait too long for service and ask multiple times for the second bottle of wine.

    The service was brilliant and the guys were quick to offer their personal recommendations and to let us know how it's done in Spain which was a great touch. The food was good and a decent wine list with lots of Spanish choices on there.

    Great tapas done in a traditional way. Dont expect to see Australianised versions of traditional Spanish food. This is the real deal!

    Bit over priced, order 2 of everything if you have 2 dinners. Even for tapas the servings are too small

    Excellent tapas and wine list. Unfortunately a large party monopolised the restaurant and made it almost impossible to hear. But eating al fresco saved the night.

    Bar Tapa is without a word a great venue, delicious food and exceptional customer service. Authentic Spanish delicacies that make you feel in a tavern in Barcelona without leaving Australia !!!

    Just returned from a trip to foodie Spain including Basque Country and Catalonia. Was craving some authentic Spanish back home to rekindle those memories. Bar Tapa does that. And they serve the drink of the moment - Vermut!
