I loved this tapas place, always had friendly staff, welcoming atmosphere and amazing food, but on a recent visit to Swanage, we found that it had closed down! It will be missed as it was such good value for money and the food was great quality.

This is my second attempt at reviewing Windjammers - last time I decided to quote another reviewer's comment which I though summed it up nicely but that fell foul of TripAdvisor's moderation (even though it was only part of the review), so let's try again with all my own words this time...

We've visited Windjammers on a couple of occasions now and always been pleased with the friendly, if a bit quirky, service. The tapas is excellent (on our most recent visit it was a great opportunity to introduce the children to the food they would soon be enjoying in Spain) and it's family-friendly too.

A lovely little cafe/restaurant, offering something a little different in Swanage

Always on our visits to Swanage, Windjammers was a first to visit to enjoy the Tapas Bar in the evenings. Unfortunately on our last visit, a week ago, the whole place has closed. Such a shame as it made a different type of eating and the tapas food was always good. The owner, with whom we had chatted to in the past, seemed to have done so well in his desire to promote Spanish tapas dishes. A great loss to Swanage in my opinion.

4 of us went here one evening, tempted by the tapas menu and we were not disappointed. Not particularly expensive (apart from the drinks) but dearer than a pub meal.
Really well prepared food and helpful advice on-hand.
Really nice tapas - we will go-back.

Tapas (on certain nights) really was a hit.
Kids picked whilst we chose what we want for a change........
Excellent friendly staff and speedy service too.
Good food and very reasonably priced too.
Would definately recommend and shall return on our next visit to Swanage.
