This restaurant has great food served in nice portions that you can mix and match according to your mood and how hungry you are. Every item we selected was very tastey. The service was very pleasant and attentive. I would highly recommend this restaurant for those who still enjoy the art of conversation shared over good food and good wine with great company. The atmosphere is subdued and warm, making a great place for a romantic evening or a special occasion.

The food was very good and tasty however the price was much to high for tapas sized portions. The service from all the staff was excellent. The restaurant's ambience had a nice feel.

Last year we really enjoyed Tapas. This time not so much. Food was late coming and when finally arrived we ate and were pretty much asked to leave as they had another seating. Food was not as good as the last time and I would not go back.p

Very mixed feelings after eating here for the first time. If it wasn’t so very expensive and I mean VERY when you consider the portion size together with price I could even give 5 stars. Some menu items like the beef flatiron and the apple/beet salad rocked our tastebuds. But the patatas (diced potatoes) were close to burnt, making it hard to enjoy the intense tomato sauce. The shrimp were okay but one of the two in the dish was just an empty shell with a tiny piece of meat left still attached, far from a jumbo prawn.
The small dark room is great for a special date.
The staff are friendly and courteous. Problem is $130 later (1 drink each) we left hungry as well as disappointed by a lack of diligence in the kitchen.

My husband took me to Tapas over the weekend during a birthday getaway to Canmore. Let me just say, we are STILL dreaming of the mushroom gnocchi. I mean, we're still dreaming about it all. The service was fantastic- they were attentive when needed, but gave plenty of space to enjoy an intimate conversation over dinner. Every dish was well presented, had unique flavour and was reasonably priced for the quality of food delivered. Their cocktail menu boasted an amazing grapefruit margarita, and my husband loved their Old Fashioned. We had visited Tapas a few years back, but the experience we had over this past weekend will have us returning again and again. It can be hard to find a restaurant that can balance a fabulous menu, intuitive service and overall great ambiance. Thanks for an awesome birthday experience, Tapas.

My husband and I went to Tapas for a date night and were pleasantly impressed. The food was absolutely delicious, there was live music that was the right fit for the Spanish theme and just the right volume for an intimate atmosphere. Great service too! Highly recommend!

We went to Tapas because the reviews were great. The food was Great, so was the service and the live music. What we didn't expect was that all the items on the menu, including ones for$28 plus were actually just 4 pieces of food. Who seriously pays $28 for 4 meatballs? The men were hungry and grumpy by the time we left. They recommend 2-3 dishes per person to share, so if you are happy to pay $45 or more per person, then this is the place for you.

My wife and I went here on a post-Christmas date. We like tapas-style eating and found this gem by Google search. Don't let the vaguely unimaginative name fool you - this place is an absolutely amazing dining experience.

The service is perfect for the small, cozy ambiance of the room, and their knowledge of the menu is a pleasant surprise. My wife, who is a celiac, loves the clarity of the menu, with all of the GF items clearly marked.

And the food - WOW. We enjoyed 5 items (other than the olives that are a must-order anytime you have tapas); all of them were beautifully presented and prepared. The absolute star of dinner was the beet and apple salad with manchego cheese. Honestly - tuna was great, steak was very good, Caesar salad fresh and crisp - but the salad - that was something else - good enough that we had to order it twice!

Looking for a great place for a romantic dinner with a loved one, a special occasion or just a fantastic dinner. How good was it? We already booked our Valentines dinner there!

Tapas is an excellent restaurant. We spent two months in Spain last winter and on all counts, Tapas is as good or better than even the high end tapas restaurants that we enjoyed in Toledo, Seville, Javea and elsewhere. One of the real strengths of Tapas is that they do not try to copy the dishes one would enjoy in Spain, but to use the best quality ingredients, both local and imported, to prepare and present delicious food in the tapas style.

My love for lamb led me in choosing this restaraunt for New Years weekend celebration with my partner. Upon ordering the lamb and a starter for myself and shared mussels and duck with my partner, we were told they no longer had either lamb or mussels. Rather than letting this spoil our special night, we stayed and ate other options. Overall, the service from the waitress was poor and in turn, created an unwelcoming atmosphere. The food was mediocre at best, prices were too high for the quality.

We went for our anniversary based on the good reviews and it has a nice atmosphere but the food portions were quite small, expensive and just OK. If you go make sure you eat before hand or you’ll leave hungry unless you order at least 3 or 4 items per person at $20-$30 a piece. They sat us up on the second floor when it was -30degC outside and it was ridiculously cold. We had to keep our heavy winter coats on for the entire meal. Not a repeat.

The food was great but nothing I couldn't prepare for a much better price at home. The service was great when they paying attention, very informative. We were sat by a window and told that it wouldn't be cold. It was freezing. It's great but I wouldn't go again because it was too pricy. The food should be orgasmic if its going to be at the price, not just really good.

A true Gem. We love the quaint cozy feel of Tapas. Excellent food. The staff are terrific -> very friendly, attentive and helpful in assisting you in selecting your menu choices. We were in Canmore for two weeks and dined at Tapas three times. There are some great restaurants in Banff and Canmore but this is our favourite. We will be back in Canmore in spring and can't wait to return to Tapas. On Friday evenings they have a musician (Spanish Guitarist). Beautiful music. We highly recommend Tapas. It is pricey but absolutely worth it. Enjoy!

We have been to Tapas before and had the most memorable and amazing experience. Unfortunately this time around was not as good. The atmosphere seemed different (brighter) the pricing on the menu seemed to have sky rocketed! While the food was good, it was not exceptional as it was on our last visit. We were looking forward to the sangria all week and it seemed as though the recipe had changed. As much as I wanted to give a glowing review, I think I would likely try somewhere else next time.

At the risk of overladening a review with too many superlatives, the immediate sense of warmth and familiarity experienced walking in the door is wonderful. The staff are fabulously welcoming, brilliantly informed and passionately interested in what they are serving. There is tantalizing mix of Canadian and international products on offer which really make for an enjoyable,indulgent experience. In today’s world of mass market pleasing franchises it’s always nice to find a place that truly places quality, intimacy and simplicity as an apparent top 3 on its priority list. Will certainly be back. Full marks!
