Taberna Tapas Ratings and Reviews

Taberna Tapas is one of our favorite restaurants. The service and quality are always reliable and enjoyable. We often take out of town guests there for a special dinner. On this last occasion, we brought my British cousin who is a vegetarian. There were plenty of options (including seafood tapas) and we enjoyed a leisurely dinner with excellent wine and cocktails. I highly recommend it.

My husband and I have been wanting to try this place so we decided no better time than New Year's Eve! We shared 4 tapas, and a dessert along with a glass of wine and sherry. I was really impressed with the flavors!

The food was excellent and quite a variety. The muscles are outstanding! However, we had to make six wine selections before we found one in stock. What is the point of having a wine list when you don't have half of the wines listed!

Delicious dinner as always. We had a new server, who didn't realize that bread on the plate meant I (the person with celiac disease) couldn't eat the dish. No worries, they took it away and brought us a fresh dish.
Taverna is one of the few places I can dine without fear!

Have been several times. Tapas traditional with modern flavor. Wine is all excellent and affordable. Tuesday ½ off bottles. Service knowledgeable, fast and courteous ( although one recent server was a little overeager, which annoyed a little). Ambience is quiet, in contrast to most other Durham eateries. Good for conversation, including business and dates.

Wonderful assortment of tapas for sharing. Service was prompt, knowledgeable and friendly. Good wine pour! I especially enjoyed the Brussels sprouts, clam and chorizo, lamb sausage and kale salad. It is very nearby anothger (and more famous) tapas restuarant, and does not seem to do quite as brisk a business. But that makes for a quieter, more intimate setting. We'll be back soon.

There were 4 of us and we tried about 7 or 8 dishes. All of them were good but we especially liked the bacon wrapped dates. The service was good and our waitress suggested a good ordering strategy to taste a variety of the dishes available at Taverna Tapas.

First time diners here. We arrived a few minutes late due to traffic, but still enjoyed wonderful food and service before an early show at DPAC. Our server recommended a wonderful wine with dinner. Food was excellent. Salmon and paella were outstanding. Cozy restaurant. Chose it over another tapas restaurant and we were very please. Absolutely will return.

Taberna Tapas was excellent! Amazing food, great wine, and good service. Shared the beet salad, portobello mushroom caps, a flatbread, crab cakes, and potato croquettes. We had a wonderful time and hope to come back soon.

We really enjoyed our meal! Our party of 4 shared a total of 8 plates including dessert and felt that the bill was what we expected. The only dish that was underwhelming was the potato croquettes. The mussels were a standout along with the paella. My husband's favorite was the beef short ribs. Our server was attentive without being overbearing. The only bad part of the evening was that a large group of young couples came and were seated right next to us. They were so loud that we could not have a conversation across the table. The tables are very close! Before they arrived, the place was very quiet and cozy.

This was my second visit to Taberna. I came back because the food is creative and very tasty. The fritters were a particular favorite. It is a dining experience, not to be rushed. The server was very friendly, knowledgeable, and made me feel comfortable. I will definitely be back!

We had a fun night out with friends. The tapas were very good - not amazing. Our cocktails were ok. My wife and I both tried the bourbon and basil, which we had gotten before and loved. This time we weren't wowed by it.

Read the reviews and was on alert for service "Issues" pleased to say we had none. But it was a fairly quiet Sunday evening - about half - 3/4 of seats occupied. Host stand was prompt, waitress friendly & patient, answered questions, attentive to water, food from kitchen prompt, but not rushed. We took our two college aged "kids" and it was a great Tapas experience for them. Nice variety of food types, sizes. Tasty with a variety of flavors which stood out individually in most plates. Good vegetarian options - could be more (as always). Beet salad was a little plain. Chocolate Moose delicious!
