At this point, we have been to so many of the eateries near Atlantic Avenue that we almost expect service connected with a resort area crowded with tourists - competent, but rushed and impersonal. Here, the owner's daughter came over for a friendly chat (after being very welcoming during an earlier telephone reservation call). This set the tone for a... More

We try to have tapas in every town we visit, and were very happy with Papa's Tapas. What a great menu they have there! It was hard to eschew the paellas and seafood dishes, but we finally settled on 5 different hot tapas; the favorites were the sizzling grilled octopus and the roasted brussels sprouts in a honey sauce. But... More

This was a great atmosphere and the food was also great. Danielle was very attentive and I believe it was an owner or manager who was also very helpful. The chimichuri steak was really good and so were there draft beers. Everyone at the table was satisfied with their order

Gave a try to this restaurant while in Delray Beach and we end up going back going twice the same week. Their tapas (cold & hot) are amazing! Freshly cooked and great variety to chose from, my favorites: Gambas al ajillo, empanadas and montaditos. They also have a full course menu. Staff is very polite and friendly. Close to famous...

The food in this place was outstanding!!! From the get go the service was stellar, from what I understand this is a family run business and it shows. The Tapas dishes kept coming and each one was unique and delicious. Will 100% return to this place!

Stale bread, a red sauce that resembled cream of tomato soup (cold), old sausages, entirely too much salt and garlic and all swimming in oil. The music was nice but couldn't make up for the quality of the food. A real disappointment.

Every time I eat at Papa's Tapas I have been extremely satisfied. What makes this restaurant is the family that works at Papa's Tapas. They make authentic Spanish and Cuban food. I also like the creativity with their seafood dishes. You can't go wrong on ordering their Salmon, Mahi-Mahi, Cilantro Mango chicken, or Chimichurri Steak. For lunch, they make an... More

My mother is from Spain and even though I was born and raised in Miami, i grew up eating a combination of Spanish and Cuban cuisine. I've visited Spain 3 times and am very familiar with traditional Spanish tapas so I was curious to try Papas Tapas. My husband and I visited the restaurant on a Saturday afternoon. We decided...

Went for dinner at Papa's Tapas last Saturday evening in Delray Beach Fl. hoping to find a nice piece of fish for my wife and friend. Not so. Both my wife and friend had to send their dinner back as they both ordered the Mahi Mahi. I had the mariscada, which was pretty good and my friends wife had Basa,... More

Few visits only for Happy hour which they monitor closely. starts at 4, not a minute sooner. Sangria is low alcohol level and limited in taste, but a lot of if was being served. Shrimp dishes especially combined with their superb seasoned rice, along with well prepared black beans was a meal worth remembering. House reds are quite drinkable.
