Sick staff members are not allowed entry, the staff temperature check is done daily, contact tracing information is collected, and the diner temperature check is also required.

My Experience

After the lockdown, I was a bit hesitant to walk into just any restaurant. I did my research and came across Tapagaria. As soon as I entered, I realized it was a great place for the 1st dinner with my spouse post lockdown. Even when we had our drinks sitting on the patio and breathing in the fresh air, I felt safe. I always like the idea of eating outside.


In essence, you can try Tapagaria if you expect really tasty food, appreciate the cleanliness and expect quick & personable service in a great atmosphere. The parking is also free, the seating is ample, and a clearly marked menu (with vegetarian and non-vegetarian options) are a few things that made a difference.

During my visit, I got the opportunity to talk to other customers and heard only praises. One customer told me how it was her birthday, and the restaurant had gone the extra mile to make it special. Another shared that she liked the washrooms as they were spacious, clean, and came with mouthwash and hand cream. All in all, this Spanish restaurant is doing things right, and customers like me appreciate their efforts. Kudos to them.

Tapagaria is currently open for dine-in and take-out. You can visit its official website here. If looking for a reservation, book it here.
