I love this place! It never disappoints! There are several dishes that are on the menu all the time that are SO good - brussel sprouts - to name one. And, there are are always seasonal dishes to surprise you!

My husbands birthday, visiting Nashville and we wanted something simple that we could enjoy, after all the Nashville cuisine. We love Spanish tapas, the food was delicious, and the atmosphere amiable.

This is truly one of the best restaurants in Nashville. There are a couple of dishes I absolutely crave! The Brussel spouts, the Ropa Vieja, and the Paella Americano are some of the best dishes in the city. Add in a small but exquisite wine list and you have a fabulous restaurant!

Food was outstanding. Great choices and interesting combinations of food. A little odd to not have chips and salsa or guacamole in a Mexican style restaurant, but the food was so good we did not mind!

Robyn our server made us feel like friends. She was enchanting. We believe service is a huge component of a meal. The meal was so amazing we brought our family back the next evening and were warmly greated by the owner. There was something wonderful for everyone. Two in our party were running the full marathon the next day and are fussy vegetarians. They were blown away. I think we pretty much ate everything on the menu which changes often. There was not a clunker on the table.

Amazing food! It’s a pretty casual atmosphere so if that’s what you want, you get that. Food was amazing! I’d give it 5 stars but we actually didn’t get all of the food we paid for. Because they’re tapas and they come out at different times we didn’t even realize it until after we left but besides that.. food was amazing.

We had a gift card so decided we would try it. We were blown away. The food was creative, flavorful and delicious! We loved that it was tapa style so we could try several things. We were surprised to learn that sangria and margaritas were their speciality drinks. I was skeptical because I love margaritas and thought it was strange that a tapas bar would have margaritas, well let's just say that the margarita was amazing! We have already recommended it to friends and can't wait to go back!!!

First visit to this place and was impressed with the food and service. We did not expect that it was in a hotel, but decided to give it a shot. So happy we did! Though very late, we were greeted and seated. The bartender was very attentive and made excellent suggestions. We ordered two tapas and a paella dish. I knew that it would be too much food, but I wanted my hubby to try them all! I liked the Brussels. He liked the meatballs. We loved the paella. Is it as authentic and mouth-watering as the paella that I had in Barcelona?! No, but I can drive to this place! We will be bringing a group of friends next time!

Very happy with this Tapas restaurant in Nashville. We ordered 6 tapas items. While all were very good, the Guacamole and Short Ribs plates stood out to us. Service was great and the meal came out as each tapas plate was ready. Parking was easy with lot attached.

Not Abuela's Tapas! Creative twists on traditional tapas. The albondiga (meatballs) were spicy, hot califlower was not too hot. The ropa vieja was out of this world? Tuna poke toastada? Awesome. The brussell's sprouts are great a little sweet. We ordered 5 plates for the two of us and that was plenty. Our server was attentive, but not pestering. Great food, great service.
