Took my date for Valentine's Day...wanted her to experience tapas...I was advised to pre-order the Paella Valenciana ahead of time. Did so, arrived at my reservation time a little early was seated. Took an added hour before or dish was served. I do realize it was Valentine's but still was a bit disappointing. The food was amazing and the cocktails were as well. Looking for a romantic place to take your date, wife or significant other, Pamplona's is a great spot.

Perfect for an evening out before a concert. My husband and I paced ourselves, ordering cocktails and one plate at a time. We never felt rushed and and we savored every bite and every sip. The cocktails and the bread pudding were especially delicious. The staff was knowledgeable and attentive, without being pushy. The atmosphere is romantic and intimate. Overall it was a great experience!

With a party of 17 for a birthday celebration the service was quite good. The only glitch was confusion concerning a dish misplaced on a check and the server forgetting to run a credit card. Considering all of the running required and checks he had to complete, he was quite amiable. Great food and great place to celebrate special occasions!

There isn't a better place to go in Lafayette if you enjoy sharing excellent food and enjoying a variety of dishes and, of course, tapas. Unlike many restaurants in town, the menu changes with the seasons. The charbroiled oysters are the best in town, and the service is always impeccable.

A well deserved high quality dinner after an extended and very successful outdoor photo trip to very remote areas in Texas and Louisiana. Excellent quality and service, truly enjoyed it.

Phillipe was amazing. Masterfully paired each course with a wine selection. Service was best I've had in a long time, anywhere. If I had any critique of the dishes we tried, the foie gras was slightly overpowered by the accompaniments; maybe a touch too much compote? Otherwise a fantastic experience.
