Had a delightful dinner with a party of 8 on the side porch. Dishes were delicious, but like all tapas the bill can add up very quickly especially with a big party. The prices seem reasonable but the portions are so tiny, you need to keep ordering more. The patio with music and fire pit going are beautifully romantic and... More

Much to our delight, we obtained a spacious corner table. The mezquita arches and live flamenco band were distinctly Spanish. Our server was most definitely a native of Peninsular Spain, but not at all welcoming. The cerdo (pork tenderloin), tortilla española (potato omelette), and gambas al ajillo (garlic shrimp) were fantastic. The jamón serrano (the staple of Spanish tapas) was... More

for an excellent tapas experience! Features a great selection of wines, tapas and entrees. They have a chef's special which includes a sampling of several of their (presumably) favorite tapas, paella and "Chef's choice, digestive after dinner drink" for $45/pp. What is not publicized, but our excellent waiter, Eduardo, made a point of telling us is that you may choose...

It was a cool Sunday night when we ate here, so we sat inside and it was nearly empty. But it's a very nice atmosphere, the menu is extensive and has a wide range of authentic Spanish items (even noting which region they come from), and the food was very tasty. We had croquetas (good, not exceptional), stuffed bacon-wrapped dates... More

This is the best tapas restaurant that I've frequented. It is worth a return visit during our stay in Phoenix/Scottsdale. We had trouble finding the restaurant as it does not front Stetson Dr. We had to call the restaurant for directions. It is behind the fountain on Stetson Dr. and you have to climb the stairs behind the fountain to... More

Our driver suggested we try this place even though we never had tapas before. Reservations are recommended but they were able to fit us in (party of 5). The kids were able to choose from a kids tapas menu but we're able to try our items too. We had ham and cheese croquettes, flattened chicken with roasted tomato and garlic,... More

When in Scottsdale Arizona, most people have SouthWestern fare top of mind. Well it's time to break that mindset as Tapas Papa Frita just happens to be an awesome experience. The food quality, the ambiance of the restaurant, and the amazing service resulted in an outstanding evening. Our party of three shared an array of Tapas that were prepared extraordinarily.... More
