Visiting family in Colorado Springs, my aunt took me to Tapateria. I would highly recommend it and look forward to dine there again on my next visit!

I love going to this restaurant either by myself or with a group of people. The tapas are just great you can get a variety of different ones. Me and my friends like to choose different ones and then we all share with each other. They have a great selection of wines and drinks. The employees make you feel like... More

Went into Tapateria as we weren't very hungry and thought tapas would be a great fit. It was on a Monday and therefore not too busy, but a steady crowd. From the moment we sat down, the service was exceptional. We sought the server's suggestions on martinis and the bartender came over with some superb suggestions. We ordered a couple... More

We have always been pleased when meeting friends here for creative tapas and very creative bar beverages. There is a nice feeling of welcoming in this intimate-feeling enterprise. The managers seem genuinely appreciative for the business and like to take time in answering any questions and explaining their latest cocktail creations; as well as making suggestions. Having a specialized little... More

The buffalo carpaccio was delicious, the grilled oysters were great, we had a few other tapas but those were by far our favorite. The charcuterie plate left a little to be desired but everything was very reasonably priced. The service how ever was not great. Upon entering there was one other table sat yet it took a few minutes for... More

My friend and I went early and had absolutely the best lunch! Menu is graphically presented so we could decide by picture and description. I had the tuna salad and we shared the mushroom toast! My friend had the arti and pepper salad and we shared the tortilla espanola. Salads were very good size with plenty of greens and my... More

My wife and I ate here and enjoyed the entire experience. Our waiter, Ken was a perfect waiter. He recommended a bottle of wine based on what we liked and it was perfect. The small plates are delicious and expertly prepared by their chef. The cheese selection is extensive. You almost feel as if you are in a small bistro... More

We were delighted to find that this restaurant is still in Old Colorado City. It is so unique with friendly staff and excellent tapas. We got a table by the window (as it was too chilly to eat outside) and our waiter, Jay G. was an excellent source of information about everything on the menu. We ordered Garlic Mushrooms, Grilled...
