We usually go into Manhattan to get Tapas, but searched Yelp/Google/Trip Advisor and found Espana in St. James.

We were going for my wife's birthday and wanted to have good meal. At Espana we had a great meal. More importantly, the owner took time to chat with us, give us advice and was very helpful.
The service was excellent, the food was very good and we liked the environment. Don't let the website pics fool you, the restaurant is much larger then it looks in the pictures.

Finding a restaurant on Long Island that is authentically Spanish is not an easy task. As the son of Spaniards who spent his formative summers in Galicia eating incredibly delicious food, most establishments disappoint when it comes to recapturing the flavors of my youth. Espana is one of the very few restaurants which allows me to travel back in time. The Pulpo (Octopus) tapa is incredibly tender and highly recommended. My kids love the Gazpacho but sadly it's only served when tomatoes are in season.

First time here, had the chicken and shrimp in a vodka cream sauce with rice. The chicken was a very large breast flattened and grilled nicely. Shrimp were cooked well and the sauce very tasty. It came with some toasted bread and an excellent croquette. I will be back.

We weren't sure about this restaurant because its a store front in a small shopping center BUT it was wonderful! We would definitely return. The whole menu is tapas (there are a few main course options). Try the octopus and also try the Spanish coffee with flan. All nicely cooked. The waiters are very attentive and proud of their restaurant and food.
