At Ox Bar de Tapas we take our food seriously. Focused on tapas made to share we find our inspiration from the waters of San Sebastian to the bustling streets of Madrid. Experience what Ox has to offer and find yourself a little bit of Spain in Calgary. ​We take pride in using the best local ingredients, simply prepared to be enjoyed with good friends and conversations. At Ox bar de Tapas we are dedicated to the food and dining habits of Spain. We are influenced by the flavours and traditional dishes of the many regions in Spain. What we most enjoy about this culturally diverse country is the WAY they eat, focused on community, friendship and taking the time for each other at the table. Ox Bar de Tapas puts the experience of dinning as its priority through quality of service and product.

Food was great, servers were very friendly, and it was a good atmosphere. We got there before 7 and the bartender told us everything on the menu was 50% off, so naturally I was pleasantly surprised to pay half of what I was expecting. Will definitely go back again soon.

Great spot if you're in & out in under 2 hours. We were a bit rushed and felt it. If we had something planned for afterwards and were hoping to enjoy a meal and be on our way , then the pace would have been fine. Alas, we were hoping to stay and enjoy our date night together.

As always, the food was great at Ox. However, for the first time, I was disappointed with our service. Our server was not overly friendly, nor helpful. Myself and two friends were very interested in the featured paella they had listed on their specials board, and asked a few questions about it while looking at/pointing to the board. We decided to order it, but close to 45 minutes later, when it finally came out, it was not the featured on, but the regular seafood one on their menu, which we didn’t even realize existed. Our server did not even bother to ask us which one we were interested in, and was unapologetic when we questioned her about it, simply stating that it was the one on the menu and walking away. I love this restaurant, have been before, and will be back for the delicious food, but hope my future servers will be friendlier/more attentive to orders placed.

SO good! Great ambiance and I love tapas style dining. We tried so many dishes and they were all amazing. I don't eat meat and found there were lots of options - Chef Daniel does amazing things with veggies. Be sure to try the cocktails also - delicious!

Great tasting food, a good wine list, and our server gave us free churros on the house! As one of our appetizers did not come out and was not available but he forgot to inform us. Other then that, the only con I had for the restaurant was that the music was a bit loud so it was hard to have a conversation with friends while trying to talk over everyone else and the music.

Had the Spanish table with wine pairings. Excellent food and great value!

There was nothing at all wrong with the food but there was nothing special about it either. The vegetable dishes--a beet dish and a brussels sprouts dish--were the exceptions as they were very good.

The service was excellent! The food was delicious. The drinks were top notch. We stayed for hours and had a super romantic date! Can’t wait to go back. Worth the drive outta suburbia!

Had a great dinner with my Friend. The waitress was one of the best waitresses I’ve had. Down to earth, attentive and genuinely nice. Food was also great. This is a unique place to get tapas.
