Don't expect much in terms of authentic atmosphere at this bar-top tapas joint, but do expect hearty, delicious and amazingly affordable 'small plates'. As good as classic tapas get in this town.

The crispy pork belly served with quince aioli is delicious, and hearty paellas have been added to the original menu.

Grilled lamb with mojo verde (HK$98) had two thick, juicy chops, but it was bland compared to the other dishes.

While the food has its ups and downs, we feel that the atmosphere and service more than makes up for its flaws, and would happily return the next time we’re in the neighbourhood.

The best was the quail, whose gamey flavor was perfectly complemented by the sweet apple puree and almost bitter salsa verde.

One of the most reliable and consistent tapas joints in town.

Our favorite things on the menu are the crispy pork belly with quince alioli, the sardines a la plancha, the sautéed mushrooms al Jerez, the Jamon Serrano which is lighter than the bold and tasty Jamon de Jabugo.

Spanish wines and authentic tapas served at a long traditional-style tapas bar. Great lunch specials.

Sitting at a bar, drinking zesty sangria and munching on tantalizing bite-sized snacks on a Sunday afternoon is about as sweet as this crazy life is going to get.

 We tasted the plain tortilla, the “croquetas” with ham and cheese, a platter of deli cold meats, “pan con tomate” (absolutely delicious), the marinated and ultra fresh “king fish” and one of the daily specials with fried chorizo and cheese.

It is an authentic enough place for some early evening sangrias and some good tapas with the laid back Latin festive flair, which is easy to remember, replicate and enjoy anywhere.

The food is good, mostly cooked to order and you can perch on the bar that surrounds the open kitchen, watching it all happen.

Tapas is a cuisine perfectly suited to the HK style of dining – sharing, picking over your food and chatting just as much as consuming

Food I thought was also delicious. Perfect for lunch – not too heavy and not to light.

These tasted like normal, well-made croquettes flavored by the hearty ham bits. Imagine adding a melted cheese centre!

To be honest, there’s nothing on Tapeo’s menu that I wouldn’t go for. It’s well balanced and varied across meat, fish and vegetarian items.

Their lunch deals (Mon-Fri only) are super value-for-money if your wallet's tight yet you want some decent food!

It is a perfect date spot as there aren't many seats and the portions are perfect when shared between two people.

The accompanying baguette was a bit chewy, but sufficed as a vehicle on which to shovel morcilla and egg into one’s gullet.

The problem with Tapeo is whether it's the sort of place you'd want to go back to again and again, given that you are going to spend a lot of your time staring at the stainless steel cooking area.
