La Tapa: What To Know

Location: Cruz Bay
Established in 1996, La Tapa opened doors with the intentions to deliver a small restaurant vibe with a variety of delicious tapas. With time, the restaurant has evolved into a more traditional diner menu offering appetizers and entrees. While things have progressed, the Mediterranean/Northern European locale has continued to pursue the warm island charm it has always possessed.
We enjoy using local fish and vegetables from our fisherman and farmers. With that in mind, the islands can be limiting. La Tapa is special because it focuses on a concise, nightly changing menu that reflects the availability of the best ingredients we can get at that time. The challenge makes way for unlimited exploration and excitement.

Aside from the tasty food, La Tapa takes pride in their exceptional service and the ability to turn a simple elegant meal into an all-around fantastic experience. With great food and service, comes great wine. Our list takes an emphasis on Spanish wines, but we have a worldly selection along with an average of 25 wines by the glass.

I want to thank our many local patrons and repeat guests that continue to return to La Tapa and a huge welcome to the new ones. -Alexandra Ewald
