About Tapeo Cafe & Tapas

What’s that I hear tap, tap, tapping at my door down in Beckenham? It’s Tapeo Cafe & Tapas, that’s what, a Spanish tapas bar to rival any that central London might be touting. At Tapeo’s premises up on the bustling High Street, minutes from Beckenham Junction station and many landmarks, what’s on offer is, as the proprietor’s simply state, ‘magic on a plate’. Conjuring up a mix of traditional and contemporary tapas from a careful balance of imported Spanish ingredients and locally-sourced British produce, head chef Enric Castello and dynamic trio Jose Luis Gil, Carlos David, and Marcos Machado Mora – all highly-acclaimed – are set to wow the discerning palates of gourmets from Barcelona to Beckenham.

I visit Tapeo often. The food is better than most Central London 'Tapas' bars and the staff are well trained and expert. The prices are much lower too. The best to be had in Beckenham.

Great food. Lamb, pork, paella and patatas bravas tapas dishes were delicious. The staff were very friendly. On the downside we were offered either a bench table in the window or the high table near the coats. I had booked online a few days in advance so feel I should have been told that those would be the only tables available. We took the bench table in the window but I do think this affected the service as we were out of the way and not in the main part of the restaurant so a little forgotten at times. Also we ordered scallops and they didn't come so we had to ask again. They were very small scallops for the price of the scallop dish. I ordered coffee and chocolate soufflé for dessert. Whilst it was very nice it was not a soufflé it was a molten chocolate cake. The liquer coffee was exceptional. Whilst we had a good meal, attention to the small details above distinguish my review of this being a good place to eat as opposed to a great place to eat.

This is the second time we've been to Tapeo and it was just as good, if not better, than the first. The food is superb, this is the best tapas I have had anywhere in this country. The dishes are not only delicious and full of great flavours, but everything is beautifully presented on the plate, without being overly fussy or relying on the cheap tricks of quirky replacements for plates. No, just fantastic tapas, presented well, in a restaurant with great service, and a lovely ambiance which brought a bit of Spanish warmth to a rainy, Beckenham Sunday night.

Consistently good food and great service. It's a step above a standard tapas bar with tratitional tapas and Spanish staples, many with a modern twist. I particularly recommend the pulpo frito which is so tender and their tortilla espanola is freshly made and also delicious. Their take on an ajo blanco is also delicious. The staff are very friendly and are very tolerant of our 14 month old who is very messy!

Very nice little dining room, and extremely friendly and attentive staff. Nearly all the tapas dishes were spot on -- good portion sizes and flavours. The only error was some albondigas that were not hot in the centre -- they took them back and made some fresh ones from scratch (rather than just shoving them in a microwave like some places do!). Overall a great little place with a huge choice on the menu that should feature something for everyone. Highly recommended.

Food was amazing, both presentation and taste-wise. Staff were really friendly and helpful and child-friendly. Took advantage of the 2-for-1 daytime tapas offer. Highly recommend the arroz negro though all other dishes were delicious as well. We had 5 adults so sampled most of the vegetarian and seafood tapas menus. Superb! Planning to go back to work our way down the meat tapas now.

We have known this restaurant pretty much since it opened. Both food and service are usually exquisite. Whilst the food is still good, for the first time, we found that something was n't quite the same. I wonder if they have had some changes with kitchen staff. Some of the dishes ordered did not have the same edge as they normally do Presentation and portion size of the black ink risotto, octopus and paths bravas in particular. Do not get me wrong, this is this worth a visit but owners must not let the standards slip.
