We were disappointed that the website/online menu didn't reflect the changes at the restaurant. One of my favorites (seared octopus) isn't available anymore.
The table service was off. We each ordered a glass of wine - they brought mine to the table and it was almost 5 minutes later when they brought the other. The crawfish croquettes appetizer was not good and we sent it back. The salad, specifically ordered without dressing, arrived dressed and had to be replaced. The second round of wine took almost 15 minutes to arrive.

Pamlonas was a fun restaurant to go to. We ordered lots of small plates and shared them all. It’s a little pricey but very good.

This is a favorite place of mine!! The food is absolutely delicious. It’s creative yet still keeps some good traditional Spanish tapas. The ambiance is a typical Spanish style restaurant open area tables close together. The cocktails and wine list have some Fantastic options! — something for everyone. The service is always goods. The waiters are helpful and friendly.

I had the Duck Breast and my wife the Filet. My wife said it was the best steak she had ever eaten. The duck breast was outstanding also. Talked to the Chef (Charles) who prepared the duck breast just to give him our thanks on an outstanding meal.

We had excellent, excellent service. Shared 4 tapas, all good: foie gras, pork belly, potato croquettes, charcuterie board. The soft pate and soft cheese on the board were outstanding. Our waitress was excellent, attentive but not intrusive, quick and friendly. Would dine here again, hands down.

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.
