  • Tapella Tapas Bar and Restaurant in Greenbelt: A Go-To Place for Spanish Cravings
  • Experience Spanish cuisine like no other at Tapella Tapas Bar and Restaurant!

    Tapella has been around since 2009, located on the ground floor of Greenbelt 5, Ayala Center in Makati City. Its initial concept was a modern Spanish tapas bar since one of its owners was very much into Spanish cuisine.

    Tapella has now become a go-to place to dine and hang-out for locals and expats, all while fulfilling their Spanish food cravings.

    For starters, their salads are perfect for sharing. You can never go wrong with their classic Ensalada Tapella, a mixed house salad drizzled with their special dressing.

    What’s a Spanish cuisine without the ever famous gambas? Their Gambas al Ajillo’s or sauteed shrimps is the perfect appetizer to kick start a great meal. While most gambas usually has that overpowering garlic taste than the shrimp, Tapella’s take is well-balanced.

    Their Seafood Paella is definitely one of the favorites here as it is a burst of flavors in just one dish. It has rice, shrimps, squid, mussels, eggs and, tomatoes and is often served in an iron skillet.

    Their Seafood Paella is topped with abundant seafood and the rice alone is flavorful enough. The serving also has sliced lemon on the sides so you also have an option to sprinkle it should you wish to add some more flavors. If you’re more of the person who wants another viand along your rice, we suggest you get their Chuleton Villagodio.

    Their Chuleton Villagodio is a tricky one. It has a different taste depending on how you cooked the certified Angus Beef Prime Rib. This dish is grilled in Villagodio style and the chewiness of the meat depends on how long you cook it.

    Finish off the delightful and filling meal with a sweet treat of Leche Flan and a glass of Sangria!

    The restaurant can hold up to 160 guests and houses in a casual and laid back ambiance. If you want a place to eat tapas with a good selection of wine, then Tapella bar and restaurant is the place to be.
