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).
Very tasty food and good service though could benefit from more staff.
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.
The best tapas bar in Sydney! Great food, great service and such friendly staff. Will definitely be back! Muchos gracias! ——————————————————
Good authentic Spanish food, friendly staff, nice venue in a bustling nightlife street. Would happily use again and recommend to others. Muchas Gracias!
Great flavours and great service, quick and lovely recommendations of what dishes not to miss Authentic dishes and great choice of Sherry also. Will be back for sure
The food is always good quality and delicious. Service is great as always. Atmosphere is authentic and romantic.
Friendly and authentic service, a welcome change to the neighbourhood!
Always a great evening.
Authentic tapas bar with friendly staff , ambience and great soundtrack!
Love the food, love the service will definitely be 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.
Great for a late night bite
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.
This place is an East Sydney gem!!! Delicious food and drinks and fantastic service. We had such a great meal. If you want authentic tapas and drinks, come here! And don’t forget to try the Spanish sherry!
Great casual eatery with a nice vibe and lovely staff
Good food. Great Vibe. Definitely recommend!
Great tapas done in a traditional way. Dont expect to see Australianised versions of traditional Spanish food. This is the real deal!
The food, atmosphere and service cannot be faulted at Bar Tapa!
Great little authentic place Well price food and drinks except for the sangria, bit expensive at $40, and the anchovies at $7 for 7 fillets Everything else was great
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.
I love it I'm going back for sure. Very nice service and food.
Relaxed atmosphere, very friendly would recommend
Enjoyed a nice mid week dinner at Bar Tapa. Service was attentive, sangria was good and loved the calamari and eggplant dishes. Would come back to try the rest of the menu.
Friendly, knowledgeable service with great food.
Excellent quality tapas! The range of tapas is extensive, the quality is brilliant and the service is very friendly. A warm, welcoming environment, encouraging a long stay. Highly recommended.
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!
Very loud inside so found it hard to hear. But the food is great and a nice place
We enjoyed the grilled baby squid the most
The churros were delicious and the standout dish we tried.
A welcome addition to Stanley St. We really enjoyed the authentic Spanish food & atmosphere. Will be back.
