Since years we are a regular customer. Regular new items (cocktails and tapas). Don't forget to make a reservation... walk-ins very difficult to handle or even not possible. Food is great, enough choices .

This place serves tapas that are a far cry from what food in Spain tastes like. Nothing creative in preparation nor presentation. A tourist trap, nothing more, nothing less. To be avoided.

Near Antwerp Cathedral find for 24 years the best Tapas bar in Antwerp. The Tapabar began first with the introduction of the Spanish snacks (tapas) in Antwerp, and is still known as the first true Tapabar 't city. Our specialties are classics such as homemade sangria and paella, but also our tapas tables containing a mix of Spanish delicacies are very popular. We also have a separate smoking room and it's nice to eat after drinking a pousse-cafe or fresh cocktail. So be sure to take a look and be convinced by the best tapas' t town!
