With this reinvented Spanish eatery in Toronto’s Greektown, newly returned to its original owner and roots, Toronto gets its first and only truly authentic tapas restaurant. A revised pricing structure returns the idea of fairness to the table full of small dishes that defines this special style of Spanish food presentation. Among the tasty offerings in the reinvented menu, guests will find such classics as tortilla de gambas al ajillo, duck confit, a selection of Spanish cured meat and paella. On Thursday through Saturday, diners’ restaurant experience is enhanced flavourfully with the accompaniment of traditional Spanish flamenco dancers. Tapas at Embrujo hosts two dinner sittings nightly in the company of these passionate entertainers. more...

    Firstly, we chose Tapas Embrujo mainly because of the Flamenco show. We arrived at 7 and by 8 it was obvious there was going to be no show. I asked the server and he said because of the weather. The owner came out and said that they reserved the right to cancel the show if there were not enough reservations. A courtesy call or email would have been nice because we would have cancelled our reservation and gone somewhere else. The owner was rude and non apologetic. The service was horrific. Our plates and cutlery were not changed until almost the end of the meal. Paper napkins were not replaces. We ordered a second bottle of wine which arrived as we were finishing our meal. The wine we wanted was not available. There were 2 types of croquettes on the menu, none of which were available. I must say the majority of the food we had was good. It is a shame though that everything else was so bad. We will NEVER go back and certainly would not recommend this to anyone.

    Ambiance: enjoyed the show, the rest of the ambiance was casual, which made it relaxed. Food: good, but way too salty! Service: the male server could have been friendlier.

    The food was fantastic, just found the service to be a bit slower, considering we were one of only two tables in the restaurant at the time. The server also provided an incredible recommendation on the steak dish near the end of our meal, which we promptly ordered. But he forgot the order, so only brought us the bill. I guess we may have to try it next time.

    We had a really excellent tapas evening with friends. The service was attentive, but not overbearing or "precious", and our server was very helpful in guiding us to some excellent tapas choices. All of the food was delicious and reasonably priced. Thoroughly enjoyed by all.

    In my mind, one of the only 2 true, authentic spanish tapas restaurant in Toronto (the other one being Torito, in Kensington market). Try to come at the end of the week, when they have live flamenco performance. Not cheap, but for a date night, you won't regret it

    Six of us had a terrific evening. The food was exceptional. Particular favorites were the lamb and the paella Bomba. Service was friendly and efficient. The flamenco dancer was very good as was the guitarist. Very enjoyable evening.

    Loved the food and wine, entertainment was great (especially the young boy drummer). We arrived just before 6 pm and explained we had to be at a show down the street by 7.30. One dish that we ordered never came, although the waiter made sure we paid for it. So a mixed review: some great parts, others disappointing.
