Tapeo offers great Spanish food in a European atmosphere. With authentic Spanish decor Tapeo can accommodate guests in two different dining rooms, whether it be near a fire place or large window overlooking Newbury Street in our Flamenco Dining Room or in a dim lite nook in our downstairs Bodega Room. We offer classic entrees, over 40 regional tapas, and a comprehensive, all-Spanish wine, sherry and spirits list. Tapeo also has outdoor seating, weather permitting. Thanks to a first-class pedigree (Somerville's award-winning Dali shares the same ownership) and an even better location (the heart of Newbury Street), Tapeo is easily the city's most popular Spanish restaurant.

Sadly it was the last night for Tapeo. We have been repeat customers due to the wonderful service and excellent food. The owners are affiliated with Soleo in Waltham and Kika in Cambridge which we will have to try.
Like many other businesses on Newbury Street the rents keep going up and up forcing many long time businesses out.
We wish the staff well and best wishes for the future!

One of our favorite tapas places in MA! Very sad to hear it is closing.

A great place for small plate dinning in a great downtown Boston location.

I have good memories of this place. Too bad it is another victim of unreasonably increased rent.

We were rudely talked to and practically asked to leave even though there was no one there and we were enjoying nice conversation.

Tapeo was a real find. The small dishes are large enough for 5 people to share and each one was better than the last. First we asked about dairy and peanut free dishes, the waitress disappeared for a few minutes and brought back an edited menu with all the possibilities highlighted. We ordered a paella and 5 small plates. There was more than enough food. The paella was wonderful, as were the artichokes, cerviche, potatoes bravas, spinach and calamari. The service was exceptional and atmosphere lovely, especially because we were able to have a real conversation without having to raise our voices.
We highly recommend this restaurant.

This is a great restaurant. The food is amazing and the service is prompt. This is my second time going. Always have gone for dates because the ambience is amazing. It is a very quiet atmosphere so it’s not a late night hangout.

Love the fried goat cheese balls. It's just too loud for me in the dining areas because of all of the reflective surfaces so I prefer to sit at the bar.
