Dagabi Cucina is a Spanish inspired tapas bar and restaurant in Boulder, Colorado. The menu ranges through many traditional Spanish meals as well as creative new dishes that reflect the kitchen�s use of fresh, local and seasonal ingredients.

Other tapas options at Dagabi Cucina include fish croquetas, Spanish tortilla and stuffed, wrapped dates. Larger dishes include traditional paella for the table, or plates like grilled tuna, sirloin steak and seafood stew.
The service was excellent and the tapas were yummy!!!bthe paella was a bit over-cooked, but the flavor was okay.
Hard to find because the address is on Broadway, but you can't see it from the street. Its hidden behind Lucky's Market. Go into the Lucky's parking lot and park there. The restaurant is in a strip down a few steps, and across a small plaza.
We were there on a quiet Sunday night. Surprisingly uncrowded neighborhood gem. Great, creative cocktails. Beautiful and bountiful salads. Tried the paella, two pasta dishes (one with gluten free pasta) and a chicken dish. All were really great. Prices were very reasonable for such good food. We would go there again if we were going to be in town longer!
As always, the food was amazing, and I am still eating the leftovers...the balsamic mushrooms on the pizza for breakfast is glorious ; )
And my Cosmo was perfect!
The appetizers and wines by the glass were good, but our entrees were not good at all. I got a mushroom ravioli dish that was mushy and overpoweringly garlicky. My husband got a seafood lasagna dish that tasted "off" - like funky shellfish. Our waitress told us that the kitchen staff was new and did not know what they were doing. Somewhat disappointing experience, though it would be worth trying again (maybe just for apps and drinks) as it is in a cute location tucked away in North Boulder and has good ambiance.
Almost the traditional tapas restaurant/cantina from Spain. Slightly dissapointed by the wine list, but food was excellent, good choices, well served in a timely way. A little noisy, so small group better,
DaGabi is a pleasant neighborhood restaurant with an extensive menu. The round Italian loaves served fresh from the oven are divine. Happy hour lasts all night on Tuesday and there's enough to choose from to have a delightful meal and an affordable night out.
Outstanding food! Very authentic. Moderately priced for the quality.
Such a great place in the neighborhood. Great vibes, great food, and they pour good drinks, not skimpy. It's a go-to place for me. Dependable, warm and cheerful.
We had a very pleasant time celebrating Father's Day and I would like to try several other things on the menu.
Went to Dagabi on a first date and sat from happy hour to 9pm. Our waiter was attentive but non intrusive. We could converse at a reasonable volume. The food was fantastic just off the Tapas menu. I would recommend Dagabi particularly for happy hour as the Tapas menu is extensive and pleased a wide variety of palates and food sensitivities. This has become my favorite hot spot.
Outdoor seating was very nice. We were there for happy hour. The service was very good and the tapas we ordered were all delicious, especially the pizza and the mushrooms!
This restaurant was recommended to us by a local. However, the service was spotty. Waitress asked if we would like bread and we responded Yes. Never any bread. Two of the three entrees came out while I was still eating my salad. The third entree did not come out until we had finished eating our entrees.
The paella was excellent and the portion large. The happy hour menu was diverse and tempting.
I always enjoy stopping by Dagabi for dinner when I'm in town. It's in the neighborhood and it's usually pretty good. However I think they're slipping a little. They have specials, but the regular menu hasn't changed in years; I think it's due for an update.
I was also very disappointed by the veggies that came with my meal, the green beans were over cooked and shriveled.
Maybe it's best to just go for Happy Hour and avoid the full meal.
Very attentive, friendly and definitely know their food!
The waitress didn't know the name of the dishes as they were written in the menu (most of them in Spanish). I had to point out several times for her to get it (even though I am a native Spanish speaker), and even so, she brought 2 tapas that were not ordered and mixed up another one. We asked her for an extra glass to share the sangria garafe and brought and sangria glass (charging us later $5 for it, even though we had the garafes too). She wouldn't divide the check (we were 6 all paying in couples) even though we told her at the beginning to please do so.... she brought a check that had a plate we didn't order and when told she wouldn't bring a new check, she just said she will discount it (on her mind) but ended up charging us for it......
Tapas were also very expensive, although they were good.
I wouldn't recommend hiring this waitress again, she was very nervous and distracted... we weren't happy with the service and however were charged 18% because we were a group of 6 people.
We won't be back as a big group.
I appreciated the opportunity to introduce a long-time Boulder resident to "Boulder's best little secret." I was especially pleased with the young male server who was quite attentive and who made the experience more than enjoyable.
Wow! What a pleasant surprise to find this neighborhood gem in North Boulder! The cuisine was unique and fresh and not one of us had a bad meal. Plus the wood oven pizza was amazing! Enjoy this place for sure.
Nice to find in Boulder a taste of Spain like in Granada, with tapas & paella. Dessert was good too, the waiters unobtrusive, ambiance quiet enough so we could talk.
One of my favorite places!!
