Tapeo is more than a tapas bar; it's a project of two childhood friends —  Sébastien Muniz and Victor Afonso — who since the age of 14 have dreamed of working together on a culinary adventure. "As teens, we even opened a joint account to fund our project!" says Victor.

When they got wind in 2004 that a space was freeing up in the Villeray area, they didn't hesitate for a second. "Except Villeray was not a neighbourhood where people went out; we had to find a good concept," says Victor.

Largely influenced by their Iberian origins — Spanish for Sebastian, Portuguese for Victor — it seemed obvious to open a tapas bar. "It's convivial, easy to share and still not over played," says Victor.

WOW! Expérience unique!

Expérience gastronomique sans faute. Service attentionné au-delà des attentes. Équipe passionnée. Nourriture riche en saveur, et équilibrée. Menu recherché. Prix très honnête pour l'ensemble. Chaque visite à Montréal devra être synonime de visite à ce resto, il en faudra 1 à Québec!

Beau, très bon, abordable

C'est le bar à Tapas à Montréal, les bouchées sont excellentes et les repas du midi sont juste assez et bien abordable. Ils ont également une belle carte des vins au verre, très pratique le midi. Bravo! aux rénos et à l'agrandissement, c'est maintenant plus facile d'y accéder.

Bon dans un beau décor

J'adore leur mur en planches au fond! Mais avant tout la nourriture est excellente, de haut niveau. Pour une fois un restaurant de qualité hors du plateau ou du centre-ville, c'est bon pour Villeray! Miam!

Went on a Sunday. Despite this and a big snow storm the place was busy - always a good sign. The waiter was extremely knowledgeable and friendly about helping. He knew the wines (of good quality) and was able to recommend a quality Rioja to replace the requested one since it was out of stock. My love and I allowed him to recommend a selection of tapas to have. - tomates sur vignes avec chevre and garlicky olive oil for spreading on bread (delicious) - Bacon wrapped scallops in a quince/sherry reduction (delicious) - marinated pepper and fava bean salad with manchego cheese and serrano ham (very delicious) - veal liver and mushroom risotto (delicious) - calamari salad (delicious) - we had a 3 selection "sampler" for dessert... goat's cheese cheesecake with dulce de lecce, coffee torte with strawberry, custard cup with cinnamon and something else (great companion to the last of the Rioja). Overall, the food was excellent! We spoke the next day about how good it was. The waiter was extremely knowledgeable about the wines and the food and a superb ambassador/customer service representative for Tapeo. To learn how young the Chef is - what a talent and imagination. Bravo. I highly recommend this restaurant. The taxi driver said he had never heard of a "good restaurant" in this Villeray east area - Well this is one.

Awesome place, a bit small (the mens bathroom is the smallest i have seen in my life) but everything else was perfect. Try the salmon tartar or the scampies... Ouch Nice wines. The staff knew every details of the menu with perfection and made honest suggestions. They have 42 places for now but at the end of january the new building will hold 80. For desert, try the Churo... Ouch

Super place

The slight details were though of so we could enjoy an amazing tasting experience. The talented chef's (Marie-Fleur) imagination and innovation are geniously charming. The wine selection is intelligent and combines well with the different dish. A must try stop !

We were visiting from Boston and decided to go to Tapeo with our friends for Thanksgiving. As usual, the food and wine selection was fantastic. What made our experience even more fabulous this time was the offer from our waiter to trust him with our meal. After the usual checks for any allergies and preferences, we quickly embarked on an amazing culinary adventure with exquisitely paired Spanish wines. Artur took care of us like we were family and, like family, we will definitely be back soon. Thank you for the amazing evening!

The server was condescending, his humor was not for everyone I suppose. We asked for non alcoholic beverages and made us feel bad about it? He said he could go to the dépanneur and resell it to us for double. He could have just say no. Food was good, but the asparagus were overcooked. The rest was very delicious! I would come back but not if I see that waiter.

I came to this restaurant after reading several reviews that said it was a hidden gem. It is. Excellent service, everyone has a smile on their face. Tapas meals are wonderful. Had an excellent tomato soup, spinach, beef tartare, so many choices looking forward to going back again and trying more. Waiter was very helpful with limiting the choices and he was right. Excellent wine choice also recommended by the waiter. Will definitely return. Fun evening. Valet parking $8, was a bonus. Very nice, polite young man parks your car he’s moved here from Burundi.

Treat mom to a great dinner in Montreal

Treat mom to a great dinner in Montreal

Tapeo is a classic that we simply cannot get enough of. This Spanish tapas restaurant ensures that Mom gets to try a little bit of everything. Their scallops wrapped in lardon are a must, as is their pan-fried mushrooms in a rich sauce with a poached egg. Marie Fleur St Pierre, the head chef, even has a cookbook of all her classic dishes, named after her restaurant. What a perfect little gift for mom, after taking her to Tapeo for dinner!

Discover good eats around Montreal’s Jean-Talon station

This is one of the most famous tapas bars in Montreal... and rightly so. I have to admit that with Marie-Fleur in the kitchen, they already have a head start. Squid, cod, sardines, sausage: all used to create proper Spanish dishes you won’t soon forget. Pro tip: you can now bring Marie-Fleur’s cuisine home, thanks to her ready-to-eat take-away dishes.
