We walked over to the waterfront and checked out Tapas. It was a great choice!! Great food and great service. I will come back again!!!5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWe arrived late afternoonWe arrived late afternoon for happy hour. Greeted by the owner, who put up with my middling Spanish and gave recommendations for upcoming trip to Spain/France. Service was prompt, courteous, and attentive. The restaurant is open and airy, with good views of the neighborhood.
Ordered off the regular and happy hour menu. Options off both menus were excellent. Sangrias were smooth and very tasty, not the usual bad wine stuffed with fruit.
An excellent range of well-blended tastes, definitely a welcome taste of Spain. We'll be back when we can!5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a great time.Had a great time. We went for an early dinner. We had tickets to a play and after we ate we sat around and drank their fabulous sangria until we had to leave to go to the show? They did not rush us and the food and waiter were great!4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and wine, and wonderfulGreat food and wine, and wonderful flamenco show. Favorites on the menu: prawns in garlic, the house salad, lemon garlic chicken, the amazing patatas alioli verde, and churros with a delicious dark chocolate sauce.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMHappily surprisedVery reasonable prices, good food, energetic flamenco, and a great waiter. Added up to a great evening with the girlfriend. Great for birthdays but dont expect a quiet place to have a conversation. Very lively and a lot of fun . The singers and dancer were great and they actually seemed to enjoy their job! I was extremely pleasantly surprised. Only bad thing was the host who seemed frazzled with everything going now.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMIf you like tapas and paellaIf you like tapas and paella you'll love this place. It's hard to find real paella in the US and this place reminded me of just why this dish is so popular. Plus each the the different tapas we tried were all out-of-this-world. There was live music, Spanish guitar, and we dined outside under a perfect desert moon. It is elegant without being stuffy. Great evening that of course led to even greater sex later. Highly recommend this place.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our second visitThis was our second visit to Tapas Papa Frita and it won't be our last. The food is delicious and the tapas style of dining makes it fun to pick and share food with your friends. Unfortunately a freaky April storm didn't allow us to dine outside that evening but if you can the ambiance is wonderful.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWow! What a gem I found inWow! What a gem I found in Scottsdale. We sat on the patio which was lovely. We didn't know which wine to order and the server help us select a delicious wine. The food was amazing! We had a few tapas and a paella. The food is very authentic. All were mouth watering but our favorite was easily the Paella and the dates stuffed with goat cheese! The ambiance is romantic, intimate, and cozy. The service was great from bus boys to our waiter! It was a fantastic experience. A new favorite!4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I have the mostMy wife and I have the most wonderful time at Tapas from the view over looking the vegetable garden to Camelback mountain.
We went ahead and order all the chef specials from goose to broccoli blossom all of them magnificent choice , after dinner we meet the chef and buy us a liquor I think call 43 what a. Top notch food and service we will come back to tapas any time we return to town ( the Busser Danzel the best young men with the greatest table matters, thanks guys to make us feel like family..4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and great spanishExcellent food and great spanish ambience. Make sure you show up not too late and sit close to the stage to see the flamenco up close.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of our favorite specialOne of our favorite special occasion places...charming inside and out dining, unique food, great service. We like to start with the champagne sangria! The inside can get pretty noisy with the flamenco, but outside its always wonderful.an after dinner stroll around the waterfront completed this evening.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMBest paella!We could not decide what to order because everything sounded so good. They had a chef's choice 6-dish special which made it easier. It included lamb and beef tenderloin; Machego cheese; shrimp with garlic; red pepper stuffed with cheese; date filled with cheese and wrapped in pancetta; paella with shrimp, mussels, clams, and chicken. Everything was so good and unfortunately, by the time the paella came, we were too full to eat it up. It really hurt to throw it away because it was THE BEST paella I have ever had (we were staying at a hotel and were leaving the next day). We didn't even have enough room for dessert. I'd definitely go back.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect patio dining rightPerfect patio dining right in downtown Scottsdale. Go for Tapas or one of the entrees -share everything!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe met friends from ScottsdaleWe met friends from Scottsdale for dinner, and it was their first visit to Tapas Papa Frita as well! Our group of five found the menu to have a fabulous array of items to share, and we enjoyed everything. The Paella was our favorite, and there was plenty for all. Everyone in the group agreed that Tapas Papa Frita was a hit, and we would all be returning.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMVery pricey. My husband andVery pricey. My husband and I bought a paella for two, 4 tapas, and two sangrias for $140 dollars. Overall, my experience was really not worth the $140 I paid.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food! Extremely loud music.What a great place. Food is really great. Menu a little difficult to understand until you finally grasp the sampler concept. Friday and Saturday nights they have music. But it is flamenco and castanets. If you are there to visit with anyone while eating, do not go on Friday or Saturday night or if you do, reserve a table outside. We enjoy music but not when it is so loud you can't hear yourself think. We complained the first time we ate here because we were stuck at an inside table. Complaint not heeded. Overall the food is wonderful. Just wish the music could be toned down about 100 decibels.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was awesome and weThe food was awesome and we would loveto come back again to try other menu items.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMFun and flavorfulExcellent without being pretentious, lots of great flavors, Mediterranean flair. Loved the music and Flamenco dancers. Perfect seat on the patio afforded a nice view and still allowed us to see and hear the entertainment inside.
A couple dishes were outstanding--the shrimp "pil" in a smoky, spicy red sauce, and the paella--and one I wouldn't recommend, a small plate of overly salty sausages not much different from the prepackaged kind. Nobody else at my table wanted to try the lamb chops, and the waiter even ho-hummed them, but they were perfect and I didn't need an entree after that. All in all, a fun, relaxed, and delicious choice.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMRecommend the rabbit entree.Recommend the rabbit entree. Excellent food and service, great for outside dining with view of canal, gas heaters, fire pit.3/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
