- Great placeMapk7565Dined on 9/13/2014Fantastic restaurant. Great food and amazing service. You have to try the tuna tartare !Special Features:
- Perfectgatsby1961Dined on 8/31/2014If you are adventurous, I would recommend letting your waiter choose your tapas. They are all great and will lead you to tastevthings you may not have thought of (like that delicious ''crunchy beef tartar''Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Tasty TapasAliCatVIPDined on 8/31/2014We went to Tapeo on a recent Sunday during our first trip to Montreal. The service was attentive, and the food was very good. Our favorites were the chorizo and the tapas of the day, which was eggplant stuffed with sausage and vegetables and covered with melted mozzarella and spicy tomato sauce. The restaurant is outside of the more popular (and more touristy) neighborhoods. In fact, the cab driver asked if we were sure of the address because he had never before driven someone to that area for dinner. The overall vibe was trendy but not pretentious. The wine selection was adequate. Our only complaint is that the tables were so close together that the servers were stumbling over chairs trying to navigate the dining area.Special Features:
- JohnnyDined on 8/31/2014Once again, we had a great time. Food was exquisite and we had also an excellent service. It's The destination for Tapas in Montréal.Special Features:
- Tapeo - 27 Aug 2014freddy24Dined on 8/27/2014We decided to try out Tapeo by booking online a table for our wedding anniversary. The good thing is that they actually do call you to confirm your reservation. After we got seated on a jam packed Wednesday night, Bobby (our waiter) made us feel at ease and welcomed. We tried 6 Tapas : Spanish Tortilla (very good), Octopus Salad (very Good),Patatas Bravas (good), Chorizo (good),Garlic Shrimps (excellent),and Cod fish friters (excellent). We also decided to try 2 different desserts: Mousse of Dattes and Creme Catalane (both are excellent). Overall excellent service and very good food at reasonable prices - Added to my favorite list.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Good for trying new thingsDoubleWeekDined on 8/12/2014Sample different food and have as little as you want, some dishes are very good, the beef tartare is a bit different though. It must be very popular so they have to make the tables smaller to make good use of the space.Special Features:
- Belle soirée garantiePardiDined on 8/8/2014Nous étions un groupe de 7 personnes et la serveuse nous a offert de nous préparer un repas dégustation avec leurs tapas les plus populaires. Nous avons adoré!Special Features:

- Paradis en boucheJane411Dined on 7/31/2014Je suis allée chez Tapeo avec deux amies et avons commandé 8 Tapas ce qui fut parfait. Les tartares sont simplement délicieux, le thon albacore fondait en bouche et même chose pour la bavette de veau , délicieux. Les desserts aussi furent sublimes. Le service était très attentionné et sympathique. Il y a tellement de restos à Mtl mais je retournerais définitivement chez Tapeo.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Memorable!Ruby1960Dined on 6/27/2014The food,superb service,good wine,friendliness of staff ..made for a great evening. It could easily become our favourite ...the noise level is quite high and the tables are close but for some reason this was no bother. We were celebrating our 51st wedding anniversary and were probably the oldest patrons as it seemed quite a young crowd though it was mixed ..Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Valeur sûr!kchibokDined on 6/20/2014Comme toujours Tapéo est une valeur sûr...bonne bouffe, service & ambiance!Special Features:
- Nous avons adoré notre expérience !DjokoDined on 6/10/2014La nourriture est vraiment excellente ! Un délice pour les papilles ! J'aurais préféré un choix plus vaste de vins blanc sur la carte. Plusieurs vins Chardonnay manquaient. Assez décevant pour un restaurant de cette qualité. Et j'espère que le sondage est disponible en français également !Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great Tapas restaurantTravellerVIPDined on 6/8/2014Tapeo is exactly that, a neighborhood gem. Great, somewhat seafood centric tapas menu. Great fun sitting at the bar, interacting with the bartender,and she took great care of me. Excellent wines by the glass to go with the tapas. High energy all around, so Tapeo is a great place to people watch as well. Definitely worth a return trip.Special Features:
- Food exceeds venue.American2Dined on 5/31/2014The food at Tapeo exceeds all expectations (except portion size - very small). The mussels, our tapa of the day, were extraordinary. I did not anticipate a tomato sauce as savory and intricate as theirs. The location, on the otherhand, is dark and obscenely loud. I would not dine there again if the ambience and music remain the same.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Nec plus ultrahonmicoDined on 5/28/2014Food, its utmost quality, imaginative and flawless preparation and the obvious talent behind it always make a visit to Tapeo an event to remember. The service is prompt, friendly and knowledgeable. The decor modern and elegant. Forget the low-level conversation, though, the noise level is energetic to say the least. But, one is always tempted to return... again and again!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Shoots too quickly..KingofSeaAngelsDined on 5/20/2014Everything was super good BUT service was definitly too quick. We did not feel special whatsoever even though we said it was our first visit. In 45 minutes, we had received all our tapas and felt super rushed to finish and leave. Thanks to the chef though, it was very good and will return.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Authentic Spain in MontrealOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 5/18/2014Best Spanish Tapas I've had anywhere since dining in Spain. Everything was on point. I could understand the line up nearly out the door for a chance to sit and eat here. Word of advice…have reservations in place well in advance. We had reservations, and still had to wait about 10 minutes for our seats. Was it worth it? Yes, but just be forewarned, this is not a walk-in restaurant on a saturday night. Anyway we really enjoyed everything…and the patatas bravas? Best since Spain. You'd think potatoes wouldn't be so hard to make so good, but trust me, after having it in a few North American establishments since Spain, this is the best I've had.Special Features:
- Excellent SerataMaxCinDined on 5/16/2014Attended with my wife and two young boys, I love to have them try new things as much as possible so they develop their desire to try new things, Although it's not always a success lol. My wife and I enjoy it too :)) in short, we all loved it!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Love Tapeo, service has weakened...AdiiDined on 5/15/2014I have been going to Tapeo at least twice per year for the past 5 years and I always eat like a king! Last time I went, I didn't recognize any of the waiters and the service was friendly, but not special as it was before. Tapeo definitely offers one of the most tasty tapas experience in Montreal ans their prices are ok for the quality, even less expensive than other tapas restaurants.Special Features:
- TapeoBoudaDined on 5/10/2014Nourriture excellente, Mais le service un peu long. J'y retournerai a coup sur.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Very tastyOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 5/10/2014First tapas experience and it was great. The staff are very helpful with the menu and when they first told us 5-6 tapas dishes were more than enough for us, thought that it wouldn't be since I was extremely hungry. Instead 5 tapas were more than filling and they were fantastic!!!!! Thank youSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- pjs108Dined on 5/6/2014Don't like the Tapas concept, did not like the food. Not going back.

- Tapeo - great food and ambiance!RejoinsmoiDined on 5/1/2014Le menu est varié et les portions généreuses et la qualité excellente. Le personnel est acceuillant et courtois. C'était ma première visite mais surement ma dernière. Il fait préciser toutefois préciser la gamme de prix assez élevée mais pas pour la qualité générale du restaurantSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Best table in montrealdanniiDined on 4/29/2014Everything was amazing,food ,service,ambiance and even the price was low for the great quality of this resto...please dont change...i just found my favorite resto here;))Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Better with friendsTeaLoverDined on 4/26/2014It's better when you share all the plate with your friends. We took 11 plates (we were 4) and it was amazing. For about 60$ / person, I think it's really reasonable for the quality of the food.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Great foodMarxsterDined on 4/13/2014Given that food is the most important part of an experience at a restaurant, Tapeo is great. The food is delicious and creative. This is one of the best restaurants in Montreal in my opinion. However, the atmosphere is not great. I find it too loud in there and the tables are too close to each other. This is a bit typical in Montreal though. I guess if they put less tables in there you'd pay even more than it already costs. I find the wines are too expensive, especially considering that these same wines are really cheap in Spain. If you sit by the window, air conditioning is blowing right at you which was uncomfortable.Special Features:
- Amazing DishesOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 4/13/2014Great restaurant, great service great food!!! And really not that expensive at all!! One of my favourite restaurantsSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Toujours aussi bonLouiseCDined on 4/9/2014Aller chez Tapéo, c'est s'assurer d'un repas de haute qualité, de saveurs étonnantes et de plats excellents. À tout coup! À chaque visite, je m'étonne de trouver un restaurant de classe dans un quartier loin du centre. Que ce soit pour le lunch ou le soir, la qualité des mets est excellente et les saveurs exceptionnelles. Et l'été les fenêtres s'ouvre sur la rue pour laisser la douceur du temps baigner la salle. Le décor est sobre et moderne. Mais on y va surtout pour la qualité des tapas et pour découvrir des agencements de goûts délicats et bien dosés qui réveillent nos papilles. C'est un endroit à connaître et à fréquenter.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great food great serviceStevenDined on 4/5/2014I found out about this restaurant through E38 and it lived up to my expectations great food, great service and at a reasonable price. Went 6 people had the waiter choose our meal for us and a bottle of Jameson total cost was 370 tax in. This is a must try and I highly recommend the short rob and salmonSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
