Always a great great experience! The food is phenomenal. So many different flavors in one setting. Drinks are original. Try the jalapeno martini. Service is great. The only mark against it would be that it is somewhat expensive.

Tappas are good but expensive food and drinks. Not open every day but should be now that it is Memorial Day. Just another expensive place in Corolla.

This is an excellent restaurant. The drinks, the service, the food, the desserts are all out of this world. I travel to OBX every summer and I truly wait ALL year for this food and my family goes multiple times during our week in OBX. My order virtually never wavers from mango martini, tuna tartare, foie gras, and then panna cotta. The foie gras special is always good but the absolute best version is the one over a grilled peach. Sounds odd but it’s divine. And you cannot leave without the panna cotta. If it was my last meal on earth, I would finish with this outstanding dessert.

Went to the Metropolis for a “taste of the beach” event. A 5 course Tapas meal, each paired with a Martini. It was outstanding! Once again Matt, Mark, and their fabulous team have outdone themselves. Each course was thoughtful, delicate and delicious! Signature asparagus soup, seared tuna, blackened quail,delicious smoked tenderloin. Closed out with an amazing panda cotta. And the martinis: fresh strawberry, pomegranate, margaritini, summer rye, and a Prince Albert.
This place continues to be amazing. Open all year, you’ve got to go for a great meal and a fun night. Oh, yes, we had a DD!

Went during in season time so getting reservations anywhere requires a lot of forethought. Unfortunately, we lacked that this trip. Only reservations available at the other places in Duck was after 9:00 PM. No thanks

Went on line and read reviews for this spot and since we were staying in Corolla, thought we'd give it a try. We were welcomed and seated promptly. Food is fresh and local and prepared to perfection! Matt explained every dish and answered our questions. Tapas menu so smaller portions. The men had the roasted garlic soup specials for appetizer which they couldn't stop raving about. I had the tuna tartare that I quickly regretted sharing. Kids had order of calamari and the shrimp and steak skewers. Drinks were amazing, especially their passion fruit jalapeno margarita! Grand total for 3 kids and 3 adults was $265.00. A little much but we're from NY and we were on vacation so we splurged.
All around great experience. Definitely recommend!!
