"Food and service was good as always. We went on Friday evening before Gasparila and the restaurant was packed. We did not liked the life music this time, too loud bongos and really not authentic Spanish music. The solo guitar player the Friday before was much better."

"We have been to Spain many times and on this occasion entertained good friends from out of town in a small group. Reservation was handled perfectly and the table was reserved and ready. Service was terrific with a good wine recommendation from the server. She was always there at the right time for additional orders, drinks etc. We opted to a whole series of tapas which were excellent, easy for sharing and very good quality. Our friends were familiar with an after dinner cocktail which we had not heard of but the restaurant did know. The restaurant way of preparing this differed a little from the way our friends knew but they were more than happy to adapt to our friends way of doing this and was excellent and efficiently served. We had a great evening and will return."

"We had 25 people in our group. The restaurant staff did a great job serving us and accommodating individual checks. The food was good but not great it could've been better if there was more flavor and seasoning. Overall a very solid restaurant."

"I went here with two friends, while in Tampa for a music conference. While the ambience is a little sterile, the food is anything but. The croquetas, in particular, were stunning. Another dish of note was the chorizo, which was very tasty without being overly spicy. We ordered several dishes of tapas, which came at a decent interval, allowing us to enjoy them without rushing to finish before they cooled. I very much recommend Spain."

"The food was great for the most part. We got a seafood dish in salsa verde that was a little lacking in taste and everything has just a bit too much garlic. The flamenco music definitely added to the ambiance but was too loud to be able to talk comfortably. I would recommend coming before the musicians arrive!"

"We enjoyed the variety of tapas we ordered. The ceviche was a nice portion. The crepe, although delicious was a very small portion. The menu said crepes, but the order had only one. We shared 4 tapas and each had a glass of white sangria. It was a light before the theater meal"

"Went for Valentines with my wife, and it turned out to be a lovely surprise. Had zero expectations, and was treated to what I would say an almost trendy bistro .. it was a small resturant but that was good because we like to talk and be able to hear each other. and the spanish guitar was a great touch as well. Excellent service really wanting to please. the food is RICH! so be prepared for a bit of a food coma. Not a lite tapas restaurant. At least with the prefix menu that night. Delicious, and probably our best Valentines in 9 years. Will come back for other occasions!"

"Service was great! Food was very good ( I was in Madrid recently so it was a tough act to follow) and they had flamenco guitarists that were world class! We were there for a birthday for an 87 year old and we all had a blast. Only thing I idnt care for was the Sangria it had a flat taste with some kind of seltzer. All else was excellent."

"Loving Spanish food, we were in the Tampa area on January 17th and decided to try Spain Restaurant and Toma Bar. Arriving around 8:00pm Saturday, we were promptly seated choosing to sit near the stage where an excellent guitarist was playing.
Normally we would have a bottle of red wine with dinner but we opted for a pitcher of very tasty sangria which I would highly recommend.
Always wanting to try everything, we decided on 2 orders of the "Tapas Tasting" where you select four items from the tapas list. We selected the Jamon Queso & aceitunas, Calamares fritas, Patatas bravas, Paella, Filete de res, Vieiras Corunesa, Camarones al ajillo and Chorizos al Jerez. The tapas were excellent and representative of what is served in the bars of Spain. The Jamon/Queso/Aceitunas and Camarones al Ajillo were my two favorites. The Patatas bravas, Calamares fritas and the Chorizos al Jerez were tasty, but the patatas sauce, calamares freshness and the non Spanish chorizo needs improving.
The young man who was our server was very attentive and added to a pleasurable experience.
Spain Restaurant and Toma Bar is definitely worth considering if you are in Tampa and want a taste of Spanish food.
Buen Provecho

"While the show was nice on NYE it ended up costing $10 PER PERSON extra since we didn't do the prixe fix menu (though we spent significantly more than if we had). Also, wasn't aware during booking that it was a limited menu. We went for tapas so everyone in the group would find something to eat. Not so much.
Being New Years Eve and my husband's birthday we wanted to purchase a bottle of champagne. That was a no go as well. They only had Andre. Seriously?
We made the most of the evening, but we won't be back. Too expensive, mediocre food and extra for entertainment that we would have had to leave the restaurant to avoid. Skip it, there are other tapas places around."
