Their paella was absolutely delicious! They make many different types but we had the squid, shrimp and mussels with the squid ink! It was really amazing! Very friendly and polite staff!

For the last night of our honeymoon we went to el tapas and could not have been happier. The food is amazing epically the seafood paella. There was a solo musician and with such great food we ended up staying late having desert and soaking up the ambiance.

We dined tonight at El Tapas & Company. The meal and service were incredible! We had Spanish Tortilla and mixed Paella. The Sangria and white wine were also very good. The atmosphere is relaxed with a definite Spanish feel. Live music started about 9 pm. Wish we had found this little gem sooner in our vacation here.

I have lived in Spain many years and love tapas. I have travelled to many places but this is the first time I have found anything close until here. The tapas ar a little large but really authentic. Service was amazing but their sangria is the best I've ever tried. Atmospheric great, food great and recommend you visit

We visited this wonderful authentic Spanish restaurant off the beaten path in Playa del Carmen. Get a table on the patio and I suggest ordering the seafood paella. The chef came out and discussed our meal with us and the waiter let us try three wines before we chose a bottle. The food was fantastic. We had half portions of... More
