Description: Near Antwerp Cathedral find for 24 years the best Tapas bar in Antwerp. The Tapabar began first with the introduction of the Spanish snacks (tapas) in Antwerp, and is still known as the first true Tapabar 't city. Our specialties are classics such as homemade sangria and paella, but also our tapas tables containing a mix of Spanish delicacies are very popular. We also have a separate smoking room and it's nice to eat after drinking a pousse-cafe or fresh cocktail. So be sure to take a look and be convinced by the best tapas' t town!

It is tapas, it is not 3 star Michelin food of course, but the busy ambiance, service with a bit of attitude and the excellent tapas make it well worth a visit. In fact we are regulars. They have recently added some very good cocktails to the menu, we like the vermouth based ones. The classic jamon, Spanish cheese and such are very good, but they also have some not so typical tapas like the fried chorizo in red wine which is also very good we usualy work towards the super scampi in garlic. And if possible we squeeze in a dessert. Love it!!!

Pelgrimstraat is a wonderfull little Street in Antwerpen & has some nice restaurants. If you like flavourfull Tapas and A smashing winecard of the best Spanish Reds? This will be the place you should go and return to. I can recommend the 'Venus schelpjes' and work your way down on that list of beatifull Reds!

On tripadvisor I searched for good tapabars in Antwerp. This one got a good score and so I trusted the reviews.
And that was a good choice. We had en lovely dinner, the styling of the restaurant was Mediterranean and the wine was also delicious. Proper tasty!

We visited this restaurant with some friends. Very crowded and noisy. Food was good, but tapas need to be served in original spanish plates and dishes and not on white porcelain. We took the menu à 27.00€ per person which had a good variety of fish and meat. House wine quite expensive (19.95€ per bottle). If you make reservation ask for a table in the back because in the front it's quite unplaisant because a lot of people come in without reservation, asking for a table, and need to leave again.

I have now been here several times and enjoy sitting at the high seats looking into the kitchen. I am stuck on the fried boquerones and the meat kebabs made extra spicy. Wash it all down with a glass of rose and I'm in heaven. Friendly staff and good service. Can be very busy at the weekends but worth a visit (or two).
