    Absolutely atrocious. The so called paella was wet rice. It was so bland it brought back memories from when I had COVID, where everything was flavorless. The chorizo potatoes had only one flavor: SALTY. Just overall mediocre, from food to service. Tourist trap

    Todo normal, había un olor raro en el ambiente al igual que en el baño, el baño de caballeros no estaba acorde a lo que es el restaurante. La mesera bien. Yo había enviado notas adicionales sobre el cumple años de mi esposa, pero la verdad percibo que no toman en cuenta nada de eso, le pregunté a la host si podía hacer algo especial con algun postre y me dijo que Ella no era mi mesera Jajaja, tal vez tiene razón pero nada que ver con entrenamiento en atención al cliente. Y bueno tal vez en la noche el restaurante se ve más bonito con las cortinas cerradas, en el día, es un restaurante más, solo la bailarina de flamenco, fue algo diferente.

    The food was okay, the seating was subprime, and the service was dreadful. The hostess sat us down and we waited around for 15 minutes until we got service (which was interesting because the place was empty). The server barely attended us and didn’t give us the treatment we deserve. The food was way too costly for the bland taste it had. The restaurant was a solid 1/10 and I wouldn’t recommend this place to anyone visiting Orlando.

    Tapa ToroResponded on July 18, 2022So sorry to hear this was your experience with us. If you remember the name of your server, can you please provide it so we can address this issue. Thank you.

    Environment was good, food was good. On the expensive side though. The waitress was nice but however it took her a very long time to come with our drinks, she forgot things we asked her for. There was not enough table space for the food that we ordered.

    Definitely one of my top five places to eat now. Went there with 6 people. We ordered appetizers thinking we were going to eat a bit and then get a full course meal. We ended up getting full off just the appetizers and were satisfied with that. Very flavorful, very delicious. The menu is filled with a variety of tapas and entrees and none of the appetizers (we ordered approximately 10 different ones to share amongst us) disappointed in flavor. Plus, the live Flamenco Dancer who put on a show was an added bonus to our experience. Looking forward to my next trip there. Hopefully we can make it to the full course meal lol

    Tapa ToroResponded on June 15, 2022Thank you so much for the kind review! So glad you enjoyed all the food and the flamenco dancer. Would love to see you again soon!

    This is an exceptional place to eat - good is great and plentiful. Starts with the service, our waitress was Virginia, what she requested we call her. Sangria was fantastic. We ordered to way to much food, but all of it was great and we brought extras home for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Order a little first and then more as you see what you want. We ordered Tapas and Entrees all at once. Table was not big enough to hold all the food. Loved the entertainment - she was fantastic and danced almost at our table. We ordered off the menu as there were 7 of us and we each wanted something different - plates are enough to share with 2 or 3 people. Definitely worth it.

    Tapa ToroResponded on May 31, 2022Thank you so much for the kind and thoughtful review! We are so pleased to hear that Virginia took great care of you and that you enjoyed the food!

    One of the worst dining experiences in my life. The food was subpar and there was flamenco dancing to the loudest music that was impossible to speak or hear over. We tried to suggest they turn the music down but was told “it will end soon” we would have enjoyed the dancing had the music been at a reasonable level. Also, I believe they sell cigars and the smoke was awful from other patrons smoking. It was wafting into the restaurant and for those sensitive to smoke it was extremely difficult to enjoy the subpar meal.

    Tapa ToroResponded on May 16, 2022Ashley, Very sorry to hear that this was your experience. Usually there are not complaints about the flamenco music being too loud, so I will definitely pass this along to the team. And will discuss with them about closing the doors if people are outside smoking cigars.
