Food , server, hostess exceptional!! The only negative was music too loud. therefore, chatting was louder at tables.
Lower volume helps with less noise from patrons haha
And that was a fabulous experience!

This is a gem. We feel grateful to have it in our town. The food is outstanding and authentic to our experience dining in northern Spain a number of years ago. It was somewhat uncomfortably noises inside. The server was friendly and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. And although it is on the expensive side, when all was said and done it’s a good value for such good food.

Tapas were amazing! Fried cheese was soooo good. And the meat and cheese board was delicious. Loved that they had outdoor option. Server was very nice and on top of drinks refills, etc. Tables were a little close outside, but ok. We love this restaurant and the atmosphere inside. Only reason I gave food 4 stars is that I like my paella more saffrony and the Del Mar was more of a tomato base, but still good.

My husband and I went to Azucar because of a friend's recommendation, but we found the food to be lackluster for the price we paid. Everything was just okay.

Everything was exceptional. Octopus tapas were a standout favorite. But I wish the digestif drinks menu had more/better options. No ports on the list, few interesting aged rums, and I would not recommend the sherry.

Although menu was interesting, my meal was overpriced for the tastiness of the dishes. Ambience of eating outside spoiled by the exhaust smell of very close traffic. Appreciated this restaurant trying to provide a nice outdoor experience.

Azucar is INCREDIBLE! My fiance and I went for our anniversary dinner and were blown away by the delicious food/drinks (shouts to the pulpo, Devil's Margarita & ceviche) and wonderful, attentive service. We will be back soon!

So, this last visit was our second and was exactly like our first, excellent. Not every dish is for everyone, but we followed our instincts and we’re not disappointed. Apparently, and I don’t drink, the margaritas were quite good. The Chorizo is the best you will ever experience, made fresh every day. Azucar is a diamond in the ruff.

Though busy, and we ate outside, the service was spot on. I have recommended Azucar to some pretty picky friends and the reviews were positive. Typically, those I know who have been suggest they will return with a group of friends. That’s praise.

Now, some would say that Maynard is not the “go to” town for great eats, but (and possibly because the town seems so hospitable to their businesses), it is a town with awesome food.

Azucar has become one of our favorites.

Great new addition in Maynard area. Fast service with delicious small plates. Don't go starving as you'll pay a lot more! Super drinks, very pleasant atmosphere. Know that the owners are the neighboring Mexican place and NOT Spanish but they clearly got some great recipes.

Some places have the right ambiance, some have good food, some make awesome drinks, and some are really good at service. Azucar has all of those! we ordered 4 tapas and all 4 were an example of perfect cooking. our cocktails were tasty and refreshing, and we totally loved the authentic Spanish host and servers. Thank you!
