"Tapas" Food for sharing …
In Spain & Portugal Tapas are considered a culture. Shared amongst friends in a relaxed and unhurried environment, to be combined with wine, lively conversation, tall tales and spirits!

Our second time here - it won't be our last. We chose the seven course meal for two; absolutely delicious! Our server was quite enjoyable with just the right amount of interaction and information.

We reserved a table on advice from a friend. Our party of four had the Chefs Offering, amazing food, very attentive service, great knowledge of wine to match with the courses. The space is intimate but we did not feel crowded. All round a very enjoyable evening. We will be back!

The evening we were hoping for an outstanding experience tapas how could you go wrong. The menu had a lot of interesting items albeit more expensive than I've seen anywhere but maybe the tastes would blow me away ,not ;4 dates with blue cheese $12 mediocre at best;next chorizo with figs in a sauce could have been a low end bbq sauce tasty but not much here for the price ;now for some Gambos 2 prawns $16 again these must have been hand raised for the price LOL the lime left no taste of prawn.Still very hungry let's have tostadas artichoke and goat cheese on charred toast all that you could taste was the char of the toast my wife had the beef tartar same no flavor just the taste of charred toast. Well were at $80 And still not feeling very satisfied so let's throw down $24 for a main plate 2 chicken thighs de boned in a sauce with a few vegetables no real flavor ;we give up .We leave $140 includes wine corkage and tip .As a side still hungry we are not big eaters but this was absurd I've had tapas at many eateries for half the price and left totally satisfied.

Hello Dwayne, we are very sorry to hear that you did not enjoy the food at tapas but we appreciate that you acknowledged the service and ambiance. The perception of value can be skewed in some occasions but we do serve high quality ingredients and our food costs are in line with the pricing model. The Gambas are giant prawns and would be the equivalent, for example, of serving 8 small prawns if we using a standard size etc. Thank you again for your feedback.

From the moment we walked through the front door I fell in love with this adorable restaurant. It was so cozy and quaint and we were seated upstairs in an almost private quiet area. Our host(s) and our server Oli (so) were so attentive and friendly! We went with the Chef’s Selection because there was too much to pick from on the menu, and we were not disappointed! I am now a lover of blue cheese after devouring the blue cheese stuffed dates. And the gnocchi, duck, and everything in between was incredible. We’re definitly making this our go to when we come back to Canmore.

We had a romantic birthday dinner at Tapas. The ambiance was well suited for what we were looking for: a quiet, intimate dinner location. We went with the Chef's menu and were pleasantly surprised by the knowledge of the staff, the personal attention we received and the wonderful flavours of all the dishes. We received 7 courses, sharable and wonderfully flavoured. There was a wide variety of blended flavours, that we were able to explore, ingredients we would never had thought of putting togeher before. We were pleasantly surprised by Tapas quality of food and service. We would both recommend Tapas, as well as go there in the future.
