Tried twice to have dinner here this week. Doors closed, lights out, and heard that one our favorite places had closed. Always had great tapas, cordial service, occasional music. I think many will miss Tibidabo.

Fantastic array of Spanish tapas, with many ingredients seemingly imported such as Manchego cheese and classic paella ingredients (if you order ahead since they need to prepare it earlier in the day for several hours). Food was excellent and all presented and plated artistically. They...More

Yes Visa is accepted. We used a Visa card. I didn't ask about US dollars but I would be very surprised if they did not accept them
