Great date spot. They set a smooth atmosphere here. Great service from Seth. He gave his suggestions and they were great, especially the paella and gambas. Their version of steak frites was the best and the short rib is a must have. Definitely going back.

We had a great experience dining here with friends. They had no problem serving a party of 8 and the food was incredible! I really liked the variety we ordered, and would definitely recommend ordering in multiple rounds. The drinks were also to die for. We will be visiting this downtown Durham gem again soon!

The octopus is bomb! Soft and spicy, the chili oil is fire. We asked for a cocktail that the barman didn’t know but he looked it up and mixed it for us, great service!

Great service, excellent atmosphere. Spanish fusion cuisine with a great selection of cocktails. Some of the Tapas are a little spicy, which is for my party great. Must do if you are in te area

This is a wonderful Spanish tapas restaurant with especially delicious paella options. The ambience is great for a date night out and a full course of exquisite appetizers and desserts. Will definitely have to come back and try the various tapas and paellas as there are too many options that sound very tempting.

Had a great experience on Valentines Day. Loved the service provided by Betty. Betty did a good job when suggesting dishes, talking about flavors but the most important aspect is the way she treats customers. My favorite was “The octopus” we ordered twice. So tender, juicy, etc. What else can I say? I will definitely come back to Taberna.

I want to start with some positives. Our waitress was excellent. Her name is on the receipt, Beatriz A. Thanks Beatriz for your efforts to make our time and meal enjoyable. Next, the Spanish wine she recommended was very good. You can see the pics of the wine label. Yes, this is a Tapas bar so the portions are rather small, but the food quality was average, nothing special. You can see the current food prices on the menu pics. That last pic was the sticker shock when we saw the receipt. We were still very hungry and decided to get a pizza on the way home.
