    We have been here several times and it gets better every time! The food is absolutely delicious no matter what tapa you order. They have so many wonderful sangria options. This is the perfect date spot!

    Cafe Ba Ba Reba is always consistent in terms of atmosphere, food and service. We had Paellla and small plates, and thoroughly enjoyed. The Jalapeno-Mango Margaritas are awesome!

    This was my third time coming here and it was as good as always. Tried the paella de mariscos (first time trying the paella) and it was incredible. House red sangria was delicious.

    Excellent food and service! We got quick service at the bar and ordered an appetizer of mushrooms while we waited for a table. They were delicious! Once at our table, we ordered bite-sized deviled eggs and all other items were tapas: seared sea scallops, peri-peri chicken, pork bikini sandwich, and hanger steak. The service & all the food was excellent. Even though it was the middle of the day the place was busy, which already tells you something about the restaurant. My husband and I were able to have a conversation at our table without having to shout so the noise level was still very good even though it was busy.

    Nathan really made the experience! Once he was our server for the night it was all up hill from there! We had some tasty bites and loved the attention to including my gluten sensitive guest which is often tough. All out choices were delicious with great sharing size portions. Everyone left full and as the birthday girl I felt celebrated!!
