A word from Taberna De Haro
Taberna de Haro serves New England"s most authentic Spanish cuisine. Tapas and entrees are served in a warm and friendly environment reminiscent of Madrid taverns. Local ingredients are enhanced by imported Spanish essentials such as olive oil, cheese, anchovies, olives, cured meats, peppers, and quince paste to name a few. The wine list is comprised of 240 wines from Spain and is one of the largest all-Spanish wine lists in the country. Chef-owner-sommelier Deborah Hansen lived in Madrid, Spain for over 8 years and is passionate about the traditional cuisine from this land where food is king. She returns to Spain yearly to research dishes and wine in order to maintain the reputation, established back in 1998, for honest Spanish food.

Taberna De Haro reviews from OpenTable diners
  • We loved Taberno!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 7/31/2012
    We loved Taberno! We had the Jamon Croquettes (don't pass them over) the mussels, eggplant with honey, pork with fries and a fried egg and the calamari. The croquettes were definitely my favorite, but everything was fabulous. This place is also good for vegetarians because they have a list of tapas that are just veggie!

    We ate outside on a beautiful summer night. The food (goat cheese, chorizo, egg=pant, anchovies, tenderloin, shrimp, to name a few) was excellent with the exception of the chicken/garlic dish which was "parts" so lots of cartilage, gristle, etc.

    And worth a drive. Great service with the owner there to ensure a great experience. The true Spanish tapas are a treat in a town where restauranteers are constantly chasing trends. And the wine list amazing to explore the breath of Spanish wine.

    We enjoyed our experience at Taberna de Haro again. Love those delicious tapas dishes of sautéed spinach and artichokes with garlic and olive oil. The menu has expanded over the years, so you can see growth in what's offered. My daughters loved the meal, too. Not a square inch remaining for dessert, and that was understandable and okay. The Spanish Rioja wine was divine -- fresh and vibrant.

    I'm not even sure I can rate this place one star. We sat at our table for 15-20 minutes (we made a reservation) before we left the restaurants. None of the waitstaff ever came over to get us drinks or take our order. We will never go back again. We walked down the street to the Elephant Walk and ate there instead.

    We celebrated my wife's birthday at this restaurant. For I am very fond of anything Spanish food, I may be more biased, but still this restaurant's food & servoce were excellent! The flower was delivered on time and out door table was perfect with two small children. Wine selection was all Spanish and was very good. Dishes all prepared properly and at par with the foods in Spain. I traveled widely in Spain and always enjoyed Spanish foods.

    While the menu matched what you would find in Barcelona, the food did not do Spanish cuisine justice. I was disappointed. Good food is hard to find in the US. And I'm from here.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012

    This is a Tapas place and the food was very interesting and pretty tasty. It is a bit pricey. I went there with a friend who was in town and after sharing four plates and a pitcher of sangria, we ended up going across the street for some sushi because we were still hungry. We ate outside on Beacon Street. Great spot for people watching.

    The folks at Taberna de Haro are amazing -- they are so gracious and they go out of their way to make your dining experience special. The food is incredible, the wine list is interesting and varied. There's never been an off-note or a miss in the many times I've been there. It's my favorite restaurant.

    Pleasant storefront locale with what is obviously a devoted local clientele. We worked out that it was our server's first night so no comment there. The draw here is an absolutely phenomenal wine list for Spanish wines. It must be one of the best in the country. Sadly, the food doesn't come up to the wine. It reminded me of the overcooked and underspiced food you used to get in restaurants in Spain ca. 1990. The dishes we had (rabbit, paella) were fatty and tasteless. No saffron in the paella. We order 4 tapas of which two were really tasty, the other two blah. I hope the owner will look around and see what's happening in the tapas scene in Boston and elsewhere and update the menu. Of course it's always possible we went on an off night.

    Taberna de Haro is one of our favorites. The food is prepared to order and is always delicious. Service is friendly and knowledgeable. Excellent wine list with a best in Boston selection of sherries and Spanish wines. The espinacas (spinach in evoo with pine nuts and raisins) never disappoints. Revueltos a gambas are always excellent.

    This quaint neighborhood restaurant was surprisingly authentic and yummy! I wished there was a little more variety on the small plates, but found plenty of deliciousness. The dessert, in particular, was amazing! I recommend you getting the Chocolate truffles with EVOO and sea salt.

    It was very pleasant the ambiance. The place is well decorated although not astonishing. The food has good flavors and tastes. It was somewhat sad that more than four items in the menu were not available, but due to its large number of alternatives it was easy to find substitutes. The wine list is outstanding and diverse. Is not a traditional tapas place, you will be served with a small to medium portion of an entree and you would complement it with sliced sourdough bread.

    Wonderful selection of authentic spanish tapas. The frogs legs were delicious. The duck was perfectly cooked and sherry sauce was a perfect addition to the dish. The wine list here is huge and can be overwhelming but each time we have been to Taberna de Haro our knowledgeable servers have assisted us in choosing an outrageous spanish wine. We have been coming here for years and will definitely come back. Outdoor dining in the summer is nice.

    6 out of the 8 dishes we ordered were simply unacceptable. Meat and octupus were overcooked and chewey. Shrimp was overcooked. In fact, most of everything was overcooked. Many of the dishes I had never seen in Spain. Can't call it authentic but if at least the food was good, I wouldn't care.

    I've tried a few tapas restaurants(Tapeo, Dali, Soleas, Toro, Estragon) and Taberna remains my favorite besides Toro, with the EXTRA benefit of Taberna accepting reservations. I tried several exotic dishes: Ancas de rana (frog legs), Pisto(eggplant dish), Ahumados y tostadas (toasts with different types of fish, butter with caviar), Magret de Pato (braised duck), Codorniz al Xocolat (braised quail with a chocolate sauce), Conejo guisado (rabbit) and for dessert, Trufas Porreras (easy with the olive oil please, but still excellent). Every dish was very tasty and generously portioned, and I have many more dishes I would like to try. The restaurant is very small though, and when they are busy, it's hard to get the attention of the waiters.

    Food was really incredible! I had been hearing good things for ages but was intimidated by the price point. We didn't drink, and unfortunately I think our service reflected that, but it made dinner more affordable (naturally). I would highly recommend coming here, the food is excellent and the Spanish atmosphere is cozy and a nice change of pace!
