The Tapa Bar

The Tapa Bar The Tapa Bar

So Victoria isn’t that big a city which is why I guess you can call a restaurant The Tapa Bar. We really enjoyed the setting and the atmosphere – large bar on one side, open wood oven on the other and lots of people sitting around enjoying drinks and eats. According to the waitress, the popular favorites are the following: Almond Stuffed Dates wrapped in bacon, with blue cheese crumble and balsamic reduction; Gambas con Coco prawns in coconut milk curry with cucumber & tomato; Chorizo Fondue spicy Portuguese sausage, cheese, wine and garlic baked & served with tortilla chips; Chile Con Queso Fondue roasted poblano pepper, cheese, wine and garlic, baked & served with tortilla chips; and the Pollo Armanda (charbroiled boneless chicken breast with artichokes,sundried tomatoes, capers, lemon & white wine). We tried the figs (how could we resist anything with bacon) which were small but tasty. The gambas con coco involved decent-sized shrimp with a tasty coconut based sauce. The chorizo and mushroom pizza was also well done. As opposed to the food, which are relatively small servings (thus tapa size), the wine is reasonably priced with generous servings by the glass. A fun place to share drinks and food with friends.

Would go again.

Cost: Tapas mostly between $5-10 and closer to the $10 range, pizzas between $13-15, glass of wine $6 and up
