After walking through Heidelberg I found this place.

Sitting at the terrace I order some very special tapas. Eggplant ravioli and veal with red beets were very tasti. Never had food like that.

We've been a few times and tried many items, mostly small plates. The house red wine is tasty and reasonably priced, tap water is available, the bread is tasty and keeps coming. Many of the small plates are fairly expensive but really well prepared, made with good quality ingredients, and served with complementary garnishes and sauces. Meat and fish are cooked nicely and not overdone. The croquettes are very good and meat or cheese platters are tasty and offer good value. The one thing that I have tried and not enjoyed was sweet potato, which was rather oily. Although the dishes seem expensive, the final bill when sharing with a group has never worked out to be particularly high. Certainly, the highest quality tapas served in Heidelberg, even if it lacks the rustic feel that some people might look for.

After having a glass of gluwein at the bustling Heidelberg Christmas market, six of us decided to look for a place to have dinner. It was only 5:30, so we thought it'd be easy to find someplace. 30 minutes later, after being turned away at 8 full restaurants, we were pretty much willing to eat anywhere. Then we came upon Chambao, which was completely empty. Not usually a good sign, but they were open and seated us.
Wow. Tapas ranged from good to excellent, with several interesting choices in the weekly specials along with more standard, but well-executed, tapas fare. I thought it was better than Jose Andre's tapas place in Washington DC.

After doing the Heidelberg Castle and Konigstuhl we were a little hungry and thirsty. Wandering away from the main Platz (and all the touristy stuff there) we found this place on the street near the river. The menu had a bunch of tapas, similar to what one might find in Spain. A glass of wine and some bier rounded out the offerings. The atmosphere was nice….somewhat spoiled by what I think were the owners children (or their friends children) that were making quite a ruckus in the restaurant and restroom. My parents would have tanned my hide if I behaved like that. Despite the noise we enjoyed our meal. Recommended.
