Amazing Spanish tapas - delicious! Love the variety of flavored sangrias. Worth it!

nice place, casual style, good tapas
not super clean, tough
Great service and food!
Food was great! Menu had a lot of options and service was great! Our server was very attentive and was always there if we needed anything.
Everything was delicious!
My husband worked here about 10 years ago and has raved about it since. When we visited Chicago, we came back and it was absolutely worth all of his hype. We ordered about 4 or 5 tapas plate, paella and sangria. The hongos tapas was the best hongos I've ever had. The value was also wonderful. We left stuffed and a little buzzed and the
The hostess was not very nice. She didn’t seat us 15 minutes after our reservation and when we went up to ask when we will be seated she rolled her eyes at us! I understand that she has a very stressful job, I just wish she was more polite about it.

The service was great and the food was delicious! Very pleased with my first visit, and will definitely be back 😊
The food was good but it was Soo loud that you felt like you were shouting to talk
Wonderful! The bacon wrapped dates are our favorite. We will be returning!
Food and service was absolutely AMAZING. We will be back!!
Food was great and waitress was very informed on which Tapas were the most popular! I am excited to come
back again and eat and try new Tapas! Dessert were minimal and wish they had more options when it came to that but overall AMAZING time.
We always have a great time here. The sangria is terrific, as is the wide variety of plates to choose from.
Great place to share small plates or large meals! Sangria is exceptional! Service and seating outdoors on their open air patio with shade was perfect for our group of 5.
Amazing service, super cute on the inside, and so much room! We always love Cafe ba ba reeba! Never had a bad time or bad food :)
Vicente was a great waiter. The sangrias were awesome.
The wine was phenomenal.
This was the worst tapas we’ve ever had. The grilled hanger steak was so well done it was tough, the patatas bravas were also over cooked, the outside was burnt yet the inside was soggy as if the potatoes had been excessively boiled prior to frying. The gambas jjal ajillo was flavorless and the garlic was raw. The best thing we ordered was the Catalan bread. We love tapas and eat it in just about every city we visit, we would have normally ordered much more but we stopped because the food was so disappointing. We went to a much more authentic tapas restaurant the next night and had a great meal.
We have been to Cafe babareba many times. Each time it has been a great experience . Food is well prepared. Some of the dishes are out of this world. Garlic shrimp is delicious. We ordered the seafood paiia this time. It was awesome.
Great place for a larger family dinner. Was fun to keep ordering the food, trying different things and hanging out. Always lovely here
Each month my cousins and I rotate on choosing a restaurant within Chicago to drink, dine, and catch up at. I loved the idea of shareable tapas and the menu looked outstanding; safe to say we were not disappointed for all of our first time at Cafe Ba-Ba-Reeba! Will definitely be coming back with more family soon.
Place n service is top notch. Food nothing special. The tenderloin was too salty and paella rice not cooked thoroughly.
The service was genuinely great. Our server did warn us about the wait for drinks and food since it was a packed house. We totally understood, but were grateful that she made it known to us about the wait. We also loved the drinks and the ambience.
We were in Chicago about a month ago and unable to try Cafe Babareba. Finally able to get in and did not disappoint. I would however recommend having a reservation just to ensure you have the opportunity to try this amazing place!!
Great food, great service! Nice atmosphere and ambiance
