Tapa Christmas Menu, available throughout December

Tapa Christmas Menu, available throughout December

Come along to Tapa this December and sample our Fantastic Christmas Menu. ¡Firstly, let’s throw this straight out there…we don’t do Turkey and all the trimmings at Tapa, that’s not what we’re all about, however, we do have an excellent Christmas Menu that we’d love to talk to you about- that although a prerequisite of tables of eight or more persons- we think also offers superb value for smaller tables too! Our Menú de Navidad runs from Friday 25th of November 2016 to Wednesday 4th January 2017 and if you’re interested you can check it out here… Tapa Christmas Menu Starting with our Home Baked Sourdough Bread & Dips & Jamón Serrano & Queso Manchego Cheese to graze upon, each person in your party can choose two tapas each from our full menu (and Specials!) that we serve with sharing plates of our most popular accompaniments- Berenjenas con Miel (Aubergene Crisps Drizzled with Honey), Patatas Bravas (Crisp Potatoes with Spicy Tomato Salsa) & Ensalada Verde (Tossed Green Salad) that, once you’ve polished off, is all rounded off with our exceptionally popular Trio de Postres (Homemade Lemon Cheesecake, Salted Caramel Truffle & Pistachio Macaroon) why not try these out. The Menu is available all week and is: £22.50 per Person Sunday to Thursday & £27.50 per Person on Fridays & Saturdays. ¡Which we think is amazing value considering there is a number of dishes on the menu for £9.95 alone! ¡If you’d like any further information and/ or to book a table, please don’t hesitate to contact the restaurant directly! ¡We hope you’re looking forward to December, we certainly are!...

The Tapa App at the App Store and Google Play

We’ve some super exciting news to announce today, recently we’ve been working with a company called Sappsuma to create our own app for the restaurant and- as always with this sort of thing- it’s taken much longer than we anticipated to get ready but… …from today it’s free to download from the App Store and Google Play! ¡All you need to do is search for Tapa!  Alternatively you can click here. ¡¿Why, then, are we so excited about it?! ¡Well, not only will it allow us to bring you our most up to date offers, but, it’s also got a totally brilliant loyalty system built into it! ¡So, from now on, at the end of your meal, we’ll scan your in-app loyalty card and after you’ve visited six times, you’ll automatically receive a voucher for Four Tapas & a Bottle of Red or White Rioja (our Rioja Deal) totally free!

20% off weekend! 23rd & 24th September, 20% off everything!

Yes! You read correctly! 20% off your total bill next Friday 23rd and Saturday 24th of September at Tapa! All you have to do is download our App (type Tapa in the App Store and Google Play and press search- the App isn’t big enough yet to auto-populate as you type, but, if you do it this way it should be top of search results!) and there’s the 20% off voucher waiting for you in the offer’s folder! Because we’re going to super busy next weekend, the T&C’s are quite strict- you need to make a booking in advance quoting that you’d like to use the 20% discount and show the voucher on the app to your waiter when you arrive- but that’s it! What’s more, it’s 20% off everything, so, you can even use it with our awesome Lunch for Two for £15, the El Clasico! Book now to avoid disappointment! Love, The Tapa...

Our Rioja Deal…

So…as those of you in the know will know, we run an excellent offer in the restaurant called the Rioja Deal free online project management tools. ¡Over the years we’ve advertised the deal in many different ways, but, most recently, we’ve been handing it out on small black membership style cards, however, these cards have an expiry date of the 30th of June- which is this Thursday! ¡Excitingly, we’ve been working closely with a company to create an app for Tapa- which will allow us to offer you up to date deals that are catered more specifically to you- but, as with anything like this, what we thought would take a few weeks to bang out of the park has taken much, much longer! Hopefully, we should have a shiny new app to show off very soon, but, until the app is ready, we thought we’d extend the validity of the Rioja Deal to Thursday 29th of September 2016. ¡¿If you’re new to Tapa, or, you’ve maybe just forgotten all about the Rioja Deal- you may be asking  at this point what is the awesome offer they speak so fondly of?! ¡Well…it’s very simple! It’s your choice of a Bottle of Red or White Rioja and Four Tapas from the Menu for just £30.  ¡Available to be redeemed from Sunday to Thursday, all you have to do to utilise the deal is make a reservation and state your intention to use it! ¡It’s any four dishes from the menu (excluding both the Ceviche and Brochetas dishes from our Fish part of the Menu and Daily Specials) and, what’s brilliant about it,...

A wee bit about our Spanish Gin Selection…

In case you didn’t know, Gin is absolutely HUGE at the moment- apparently a new Gin distillery opens every week in the UK- but nowhere is this more apparent than in Spain which has become the largest consumer of Gin (per head of the capita) in the world! However, there is one massive difference to how Gin is drunk in Spain to the UK and that’s the GLASS! The AWESOME Copa de Balon is a large balloon shaped stem glass that originated from El Bulli (of course!) where their Chef’s would drink their G&T’s in a Bordeaux wine glasses full of ice- to keep it chilled- whilst they cleaned the kitchen down after service, and, once customers caught onto it, it quickly became the only way to drink a G& T! We, of course, had to have some & have imported a load specially from Spain for the restaurant, but, then we thought, we’ve gone to so much effort getting the right glass wear in, why aren’t we serving any Spanish Gin in them?! All the Gin we serve in Tapa, then, is Spanish and we’ve worked closely with all the different producers to- not only-individually garnish each Gin to give it it’s own character, but, also to find it’s perfect complimentary tonic – as, after all, most of your G& T is T! So next time your in Tapa if you really want to make us smile, order a G & T, after all the work we’ve put in to create our Gin Selection, we couldn’t be happier to make you one! Love, The Tapa...

¡The Tapa Terrace & The 2016 European Football Championships!

¡As we sit here writing this, it’s a beautiful Monday morning in May, the sun is cracking the flags and (with an enthusiasm that definitely bellies all our years enduring terrible Scottish summers) we’re desperately excited to start telling everyone about when our outside seating area is going live again! ¡The tables and chairs have been power washed and the café barriers have been given a lick of paint, all we’re waiting on now is our licence coming through! ¡¿¡And if you didn’t already know, the area at the front of the restaurant is a brilliant wee sun trap in the afternoon and early evening- what could be more Spanish that eating tapas on terrace in the sun!?! ¿¡So then, we can hear you say, when does it open?! ¡This Friday, the 27th of May! ¡We’ve just got our fingers crossed now for a good summer! ¡And, actually, whilst we’re talking about the summer (!if you didn’t already know!) it’s nearly the 2016 European Football Championships! ¡And, as has now become customary in Tapa, we’ll be showing ALL the games live on our big screen projector above the bar (¡and flat screen TV in the corner so everyone can see!) with, of course, particular attention being paid to the Spanish team’s involvement! ¡As reigning European Champions, everyone at Tapa is hopeful that they’ll give the defence of their title a better shot than they did as World Champions two years ago! The tournament kicks off with hosts France playing the Romanians on Friday 10th June at 20:00 with Spain’s first game, against the Czech Republic, being on Monday 13th June at 14:00 web based project management. ¡Ok,...
