My son picked up his former roommate from boarding school. Roommate came in all the way from Germany. We went to Tapas Gitana for a later dinner and could not have picked a better place and setting.Our guest, Christian LOVED THE FOOD. Raved about it. Our waitress "Courtney" knew everything about the food, which we later found out was because she lived and worked in Spain. Strongly suggest you ask for her when you go there. Food was outstanding. the owner is great and the setting, sitting outside was wonderful. Could not have asked for a better dining experience. I give them 5 STARS. Highly recommend this place.

I'm so glad Courtney took such great care of you all, Patrick! It sounds like a fun reunion, and I'm so happy you chose us as the venue. Definitely hope to see you again sooner rather than later. -Andrew N., Owner

Easy to spend $20-30 dollars for a single person at lunch. Dined to an empty restaurant and considered stopping at U Dawg U after because I was still a bit hungry. Food was just average, nothing really amazing as far as taste goes. Had the tortilla espanola and pollo ala Baraja. I imagine there might be good items on the menu, but I'm not interested to try and find them.
Response from the owner - a month ago
I'm sorry to hear that our Tortilla Espanola and Pollo Ala Baraja didn't wow you, Robert! We pride ourselves on bringing a taste of authentic Spanish cuisine to the North Shore, and we're confident that our use of the best ingredients warrants a fair price. That being said, we never want our guests to leave hungry, so it's odd you didn't get your fill. I hope you reconsider giving us another chance to show you how delicious our food is. -Andrew N., Owner

Worst food I have ever tasted. My family went there with 19 people. I couldn't get a glass of tea to save my life. We ordered almost everything on the menu to try because we weren't sure what everyone would like. We ended up leaving and getting Chinese food instead. The cook obviously had never tasted her own food.The steak and shrimp didn't taste fresh and was way over cooked. The shrimp was rubbery. Hope this review spares someone from having to go through this experience.

We adore this neighborhood gem! It is one of the best kept secrets of the north shore. So delicious and affordable with a fabulously accommodating staff.

Just ate there yesterday during a Chamber of Commerce Luncheon and the food was amazing. I love tapas dining and the food was exactly what I expected and wanted. The service was also excellent, something very few restaurants are able to claim these days. I am taking my husband there for a date this week or next. Great job guys!
