Years ago, our first visit to this chef was a 'wow' moment... excellent food, service, an innovative menu. Today, nearly 3.5 years later, Tabarka is in a new location... but -- everything else is static. A great menu that long ago is simply tired now......More

Delicious, fresh seafood... great location and a very beautiful, tranquil setting. The Chef is from Spain and his cooking style and flavors are the best I have experienced.

This is a wonderful restaurant for foodies. Their tapas "deal" is incredible. We always order the 12 course option and you have no idea what you'll get but it's always a pleasant surprise. My friend swears by the pallea but if you don't order ahead...More

We have dined here at least once a month since moving here in Feb 2016. All of our experiences have been good or better, until today. The place has been stripped of it's former ambiance. The trellis is gone and the art work is missing,...More

Three of us had a leisurely lunch here. A comfortable outdoors and bucolic setting. The waiters here are long-time employees, professional and efficient. The margaritas were expertly prepared, and complemented the fresh ceviche starter we ordered. They offer bread with a tasty garlic spread. We...More

I'm not sure. But the tapas meal (10 or 12 dishes) is all of 180 pesos, and wine 50 or less. Pay with pesos, better for all. Best value in town.
