I visited the restaurant as part of a large group so we did not have a choice of menu, it was a ser dinner arranged by our host. I assumed service would be slow as our group was quite large, it was not. The food consisted on tapas, chistorra, octopus and other similar dishes, all very nice. The main course... More

I arrived here once when there was maybe 5 tables in the restaurant. The service was way below average with waiters just wandering around seeming lost (one of the waiters was maybe a 10 year old child too). Had to ask three times for water and never was asked to refill our beers. It was also a hassle getting the... More

Went with a lare group so possibly that impacted our visit. The menu is on a chalkboard which many of us could barely read due to size. They have some meat dishes, fish and tapas. Quite frankly I found menu to be quite limited. We went with the short order of tapas, which is 6 tiers. They were shared amongst... More

Tabarka a features a fresh sheet menu of the seasonal fish and seafoods available. On our visit they had grouper, sea bass, red snapper, shrimp, octopus and monkfish. All entrees come with a choice of 5 different delicious sauces, and a choice of 2 side dishes. We decided the sweet salad was very yummy. Nice wines from Spain, and bread... More

Many visits and never disappointed. Mi amiga is not fond of seafood but they have add meats to menu. I always call to make sure they have meats that night. They only serve best fish available that day so available fish is different each visit. Very good staff and service.

This restaurant is tucked way but worth the trip. We love the array of seafood tapas. So many new flavors. Also enjoy the many passion flowers and passion fruits hanging overhead

It really pains me to write this review. We have been patronizing Tabarka for several years. Prior to moving here, I always raved to friends back home that this was my favorite restaurant in the area. No longer. We had a less than desirable experience here a couple months ago. We decided to try it again as every establishment is... More
