We had a nice evening enjoying a nice selection of tapas, including a lot of good vegetarian options. The wine list is extensive, but on the higher end (expensive). The waitress was knowledgeable and efficient. I highly recommend this restaurant for a nice evening out.

As others have said, the menu is quite varied and fun. Lots of choices for vegetarians, good wine and specialty cocktail drinks. The setting is quite comfortable but the best part of the evening was our waiter--he was not overly attentive, had good recommendations, and...More

If you can't find a tapa, salad or full plate that you don't like you probably should stick with your frozen T.V. dinners. This place is awesome in terms of the variety of food options including savory salads, tapas and full plates of vegetarian, seafood,...More

What a great find! We're big small plates fans. So anytime we can find a tapas place, we're there. What a treat this was. Nice thing about Tempranillio (owned by a Spanish chef), is that it not only offers traditional Spanish tapas, but also more...More

On our way from Vail to Aspen we've been stopping here for lunch for many years but SADLY no more. Our waitress was belligerent to the point of hostility about a gently whispered complaint on price of 'lunch-time special' salad ($20 -- "too bad, you...More
