Fantastic food, friendly service, casually romantic atmosphere....you can't help falling in love with (or at) Espana. My husband and I had a wonderful meal and then lingered in the garden with a bottle of wine recommended by owner Roberto Pestana. He and his wife Marina are such gracious hosts and they've certainly gotten things right with this restaurant. Everything about Espana is charming, from the jasmine covered walkway to the sound of Spanish guitar to the way they pour Sangria. The eggplant appetizer is amazing, ask for extra bread so that you don't waste a drop of that delicious sauce! Roberto makes the bread himself every morning, a real treat! Delicious, authentic Spanish food and tapas and a great wine list. Highly recommended.
Just went last night with my wife; mediocre food and terrible service. Had to ask for silverware, never got a refill on water. The most tasteless sangria I have ever had. Salad swimming in dressing, chorizo tapa swimming in oil, eggplant tapa tatseless. Ambiance: like a cafeteria, hot and noisy. Service was just bad, with no attention at all. Will definitely never go back!
From the mouthwatering apps to delicious entrees to the awesome Sangria, everything was top notch. Chef Roberto had great suggestions and the wait staff took care of everything else. We went with a big party and they accomodated us with ease. Can't wait for next vacation! Be sure to try the Garlic shrimp!
I come from an area in New Engalnd where there are a lot of Portuguese people and Portuguese restaurants. The owner of Espana is Brazilian, by the way. The shrimp Mozambique style is a very popular dish available at most Portuguese restaurants up my way but the preparation of this dish at Espana was as good or better than the best available here at home. The paella was quite good as well. I agree with some of the other posters that the sangria was not the best. I would definitely go there again.
