We were fortunate enough to just stumble on Pamploma and just loved it. Excellent cocktails, good wine list and a great selection of tapas dishes served by knowledgeable staff. The atmosphere is warm and friendly, the staff are great.

Generally very tasty with good service. Not particularly good value, somewhat pricey for portion size.

Actually was our second choice based on TA reviews. Man this was a good choice! Tapas are a mix of old standards and new cuisine. Loved every morsel we ordered. Good wine list with reasonable choices. Service was attentive but not rushed. Very cosy feeling. Would go back.

The cocktails are delicious and the small plates are divine. Don't worry about calories or fat and order the duck fat fries - delicious! - and a great accompaniment to the dinner offerings.

I think the best thing I can say about this place, is that they successfully endeavored to create an authentic Spanish restaurant. It's a little hit or miss, but the food is mostly interesting and well prepared. They carry Estrella Damm beer, which is also good. They used to serve a meatloaf and house-made mashed potatoes with a killer cream... More

I just love tapas restaurants. Lots of different tastes of foods, and Spanish restaurants can offer so many taste variations. I started out with a very nice soup, Asturian Fabada. It was a nice white bean, sausage offering that I would order again. I ordered the lamb sliders... a generous portion of three sliders beautifully presented. Buns were buttered and... More

Wanted to eat "light" after taking a swamp tour and heading back to New Iberia. We shared 3 small plates. Crab croquets, beet salad and lamb sliders. All were excellent!! Had one of the best Amaretto Sours ever!! Enjoyed the sampler of gelato and sorbet for dessert. Service was great. Would definitely recommend!!
