We researched this restaurant before going to Nebraska. We are from Kansas City and have one Tapas restaurant here and love it. Well this was absolutly great! The Tapas are very good and the Sangria was a treat. Thanks also to our mesero Juan was wonderful as well. I would highly recommend it.
A number of friends said that I should try this place. My wife and I were in the area early one evening, so stopped in. We didn't have reservations, but there weren't any customers. At that time of day reservations usually aren't required anyway. Absolutely no one in the place and we were rudely told that since we didn't have reservations we needed to wait before we could be seated; I guess this was to punish us for not making reservations. About 15 minutes later we were seated at the worst table in the place (the one all the help had to pass to get to the bar in the middle of the restaurant). The person seating us was extremely rude and informed us that we couldn't order a number of items on the menu since we didn't have reservations. Apparently, one must be rude to be employed by Espana. Finally, after being bumped up against by employees walking by for another 15 minutes, my wife and I looked at one another and said let's leave. Fortunately we didn't spend any money, but we did waste 30 minutes of our lives; a steep price to pay for being treated rudely. I complained to the friends who told me to try the place.
Espana is a taste of the most awesome cuisine in the style of Spain, that Omaha has to offer. The paella is amazing. I have a picky 3 year old and we were able to feed him off of the tapas menu and he was happy as a fat cat, too. Try the SANGRIA, but buy it by the pitcher...because when you drink one glass i gty youll want more. :)
If you are looking for a fun filled restaurant with great food, you have come to the right place. España is a fantastic place for a special occasion or for a special date. It has a fun feel to the atmosphere, and often they have flamenco dancers Friday, and Saturday around 7:00.
Most of the items are reasonable price but it’s a piece together meal and can add up fast…I tend to spend a minimum of $70 for two people.
Good food. Best tapas in the area. Nice staff. Accomodating to my wheelchair bound mother in law.
Noisy and hard to carry on a conversation when the flamenco dancers and guitar players are there. Go on off nights or when they aren't playing.
Expensive. Easy to push the tab to 3 figures.
Apple and Mancheco cheese is really good.
