History of Tapas

There are many stories about the origins of the Tapas. Most consider that Andalusia can lay claim to being the birthplace of tapas. In this famous wine-making region, it became customary to serve wine in a glass covered by either a slice of bread with ham or cheese, or a saucer containing some other food.† This “tapa,” a word wh ich means a “cover” or “lid,” acted as a barrier to prevent flies or other impurities from contaminat ing the wine, and it was not long before the dish itself began to be known as a “tapa.” From this starting poi nt, tapas spread throughout Spain, and beyond.....

Tapas dining is more than just eating....it’s an experience. With friends, family or your speci al someone you can enjoy a glass of wine & relax while sharing a variety of tapas.

A Tapa is not a Starter

  • Tapas is not a starter. If you start eating tapas, you finish eating tapas & you don't stop until you're full.
  • Tapas is not a collection of small dishes brought out on a platter and eaten as a main course.
  • Tapas is not a particular type of food. ¬†Anything can be tapas - paella, croquettes, ham & cheese on toast, truly anything served in a small portion.
