La Tapa 06/03/2008
Reviewers Rating: Excellent
This trip we enjoyed two excellent meals at La Tapa. The ingredients here are always very fresh., and the chef makes good use of the local greens and fruits in her dishes. Some of the food highlights we tried: excellent mahi seveche with mango and red peppers over microgreens, a mahi entr饬 which came with a bacon dill buerre blanc sauce and some jasmine rice, an appetizer of housemade mozzarella with beets and microgreens, .a pan seared mahi mahi which came with some cippoline onions, tomatoes, and roasted peppers over a crunchy polenta flavored with mint and coconut, and the excellent La Tapa cheese plate. All of the flavors were fresh, and the portion sizes were just right—not too big, not too small.

La Tapa has a funky atmosphere, with all sorts of art on the walls and moody lighting. They have a live samba combo in to perform once a week, and they add a lot to the mood. Service is always professional at La Tapa. The wine list is extensive and decently priced. My only complaint is that I wish they had better bread to go with the excellent dipping sauces they offer as menu starters. La Tapa is one of our only “must do” restaurants on the island—it’s the first reservation we make.
