If you are looking for authentic Spanish cooking, the Tasca Brava Spanish Tapas Café is the place for you. Tasca Brava is the first Spanish Tapas Café in the Triangle area.

Tasca Brava is known most widely for its Spanish Tapas (appetizers). Tapas can be eaten as individual appetizers, or combined to create a meal of various flavors. Tapas are served in every bar and café in Spain, so come see what all the hype is about!

Tasca Brava is a great place for vegetarians, with an uncommonly large number of vegetarian meals on the menu. 

Ask your waiter for the wine, sangria, or sherry that best compliments your meal--he or she will always have a recommendation.

Indoor and outdoor seating is available, so bring along your friends for a night out, or enjoy a romantic dinner for two. The interior is often described as cozey, with fireplace and window seating. Make your reservation today by calling (919) 828 - 0840.

Penny, I've had no exposure to Spanish cuisine. Thanks for showing another side of Raleigh I was unaware of.

I love paella so I'm always keeping an eye out for restaurants serving Spanish cuisine. Don't know how I missed this place! Thanks for the heads up, I'll have to check it out.

Penny, Kelly and I had a great evening at Tasca Brava a while ago, the owner spent most of the evening with us. Fantastic food great wine and espresso, he makes the espresso himself and freaks if you try and put sugar in it!

Tim - Paella (made from scratch) is a favorite of mine too! 

David - What a great place.....small businesses like this have an incredible character that chains can't touch.
