“Tasty Tapas!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2014

This is a cozy little restaurant just off the Plaza run by two charming guys from Barcelona. There is always a good selection of Spanish style tapas made with local ingredients giving a Peruvian flair to everything. As is typical in many tapas restaurants some of the food is prepared and displayed behind the counter and then cooked as needed when ordered. They have a menu each day which is great if you are eating in a larger group as you can sample a great range of dishes and they usually recommend 1-2 menus less than the number of people in your group making it great value. They have a good selection of wines to accompany the dishes. We have eaten here 4 times and it has been busy each time creating a lively atmosphere. Our favorite dishes are the patatas bravas which come with an excellent aioli and brava sauce, the catalan bread (bread with fresh tomato puree, garlic and olive oil), the garlic shrimp, chorizo and the tortilla.
We will definitely be going back!

“Nice people, just bad food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 December 2013 via mobile

We ordered their fixed menu. Bread with tomato sauce and aioli spread, Spanish omelette, paella, cheese plate, and some shrimps in a bowl of melted butter! And two cafe.
Liked the aioli spread. Liked the cheese. Coffee was ok. The rest was just very bad, especially the paella! The paella was the worst representation of a traditional Spanish dish ever! It was precooked. Completely dry. The seafood were so dry, tough, chewy. Wow I forced myself to eat it because I didn't want to tell them their food sucks to their faces.
Perhaps they don't care since this is a tourist town and they don't need returning customers...but thanks to tripadvisors, people can have an idea of what to expect.
At Tapa Tapa Y ole, expect to leave hungry and disappointed!!!

“Great meal at a reasonable price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 October 2013

Small restaurant run by 2 men who do everything from cook and serve. They make great food. Great prices. They are very accommodating and seem to truly want every diner to enjoy their meal and experience. We ate there 2 nights consecutively and all 8 of us had a great experience. Can't go wrong eating there. A block off the Plaza de Armas.
