Following several very good meals, a dinner this week was very disappointing. We stood at the door for many minutes before someone even acknowledged our arrival. Service was very poor – even resentful – waited 30 minutes for our entrées to arrive. Their recommended dish...More

We enjoyed our evening, but found the menu hard to understand. Little no information about what you were ordering, and even though we went for the large tapa meal we all left slightly hungry.

We ordered the paella special for two with shrimp, monkfish and mussels. The rice was mushy and the dish had only green beans and red peppers for vegetables. They don't have a menu and didn't post prices on the chalkboard, so we had to ask...More

When David is in the kitchen this little restaurant can be quite good, but when he's not there to oversea preparation it's quite ordinary. Good kitchen help is hard to find, but consistency is important in any restaurant - it's not at this one.

Nice atmosphere, pleasant staff and chef. For me the fish was undercooked for Mahi Mahi and the sides were tiny (¼ cup). Bread was awesome. Had to ask for water and the check and it was very slow when we were there. The busboy(?) was...More

Excellent food. But a very nasty attitude of the owner with his personnel. He yelled at them and everybody listened this. It's a shame.

Tabarka has a varied menu, but is well known for their seafood and fish. It also has good vegetarian choices. I also found a new favorite wine there and love it with a delicious tapas meal.

My wife and I enjoyed dinner here last night. We started with a plate of 6 tapas and if we had not ordered entrees at the same time we would have ordered more tapas and called it dinner. Those tapas were outstanding, a riot of...More

I'm not sure. But the tapas meal (10 or 12 dishes) is all of 180 pesos, and wine 50 or less. Pay with pesos, better for all. Best value in town.
