What is tapas?
Whether you’re propping up the bar in a hole-in-the-wall tavern, grabbing a light lunch in a rustic cafe, or sitting down for an extravagant feast in a high-quality restaurant, tapas is a social affair. Served in small portions, you can order a plethora of delicious tapas dishes to share with fellow travellers and savour all of the different flavours of Spanish food.
It’s also not unusual to be served complimentary tapas in Spain. Bars compete with one another to lay on the best tapas to accompany your beverages. So, sit back, enjoy your drink and tuck into some delicious homemade cuisine. And, if you’re impressed and want to try more, most eateries will have an extensive paid-for tapas menu from which you can order.
