Great atmosphere here, great food but small portions(hey, it's tapas!). A bit pricy but worth the cash,you'll not feel stuffed but you'll have enough

El Bocado is a small tapas place, about 20 people can sit. It is recommended to reserve if you are coming with a group of people.
The Tapas are priced from 3 to 15 euro. Wines about 30 euro/bottle. The Bobal is pretty good.

Youngish atmosphere, not very clean, for students or low budget/greasy tapas lovers.
Mostly deep fried stuff lacking of any finesse that the real tapas have in Spain.
We were not very happy but the friendly service was ok. It's like the place is run by three student friends for students! So if you're not fussy and want lots of calorie rich food for a small price maybe this is an option.

Good food, service could improve. We arrived and went to the bar to check where we could sit (we had a reservation). The girl behind the bar just wasn't willing to look at us... Strange! It took a bit long until we got the menu. And we also waited too long on our drinks. We had a bongo bon and the waiter explained us what we would get. We again waited some time for the first tapas to arrive from there on the service was faster. The food is good and we enjoyed the sangria. It's a pretty cosy place with about 15 tables.

This place is a mix between a tapas bar and a wine bar. It's a quite small, cosy place, not too centrally located in the quite posh shopping part of Hasselt. Go here if you want to drink some really good spanish wine or cava, they have more then 10 wines which you can order by glass, so it allows you to do a really good tasting.

Quite a lot of warm and cold tapas which are reasonably priced and a very friendly feel-at-home atmosphere and service.
