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!

For many years our favourate family Spanish restaurant in Antwerp. Their sangria is the best in the world. Tapas very tasty and served in a simple but adequate way. Service is fast and professional. Some staff is also very friendly, not all...:-)

Since years we are a regular customer. Regular new items (cocktails and tapas). Don't forget to make a reservation... walk-ins very difficult to handle or even not possible. Food is great, enough choices .

I absolutely love Tapabar, I come almost every weekend. The employees are extremely fun and friendly so the service is amazing. The food is spectacular: catered to Belgians but still authentic enough for foreign culinary lovers. What some people may not know is that three of the employees LOVE experimenting with cocktails so any cocktail on the menu is definitely worth a try!! There's a cocktail with jalapenos (not on the menu) which is very tasty (if you like it a little spicy!)

Ambiance and food was perfect, however the service sucked very much. Waited 40 minutes for our first drink. Finally they came, but were tossed all over a friend. Fine, had to wait another more 20 minutes for the replacement drink. Then got our food and our extra dish: the Sepia squid. However we got the octopus (while we already had to explain our grumpy waiter that we really wanted the sepia and not octpus- still got the wrong one). Then we finished our food and waited another 30 minutes (no drinks and other food left) for the squid- waiter told us several time it would come. We decided at 11.30pm it was time to go (40 minutes after the wrong dish was brought in and taken away). Then the bill was miscalculated, while I told him- he gave a huge sight. Told him he shouldnt give such attitude, at this point I got really fed up with the whole situation. So the octopus was still added to the bill and we had to explain the manager we wanted the squid (waiter forgot about it), and that the octopus was taken away. Well, he misscharged +30 euro. In the end it's such a shame though- it's not about making mistakes in service, it's how to solve them. Maybe a free drink, some discount would have been a gamechanger. However an attitude doesn't. Too bad.

I can't write a high enough review of this restaurant. The food and bread were fresh and tasty; the staff were extremely helpful, fun and friendly :) the wine and cocktail knowledge was high and we had some incredible drinks made for us. Couples, family or groups I would recommend here highly.
