$$$ 55 Mensija Street, STJ 1960, St. Julian's
Spanish International Mediterranean Casual Dining Premium Casual Elegant & Chic
TAPEA set an aim of elevating the general quality and respect towards Spanish cuisine outside and inside the country. We see our project as a meeting point, where experience, passion, knowledge, respect of raw materials, and our pride in our gastronomy merge and help to show to Europe and the world that Spanish culinary tradition can be transferred truly outside the Iberian Peninsula. Spain is about flavor, tasty and fresh basic ingredients; it is about tradition and the respect towards it, but –perhaps most importantly- it is a vast diversity and gastronomic richness, which is common and self-understanding. We are all inspired by this fact and using it to reach our aims.
