Tapas y Vino is a small tapas restaurant located just near Twickenham station. It offers a mixture of traditional and speciality dishes covering Spain, the Mediterranean and even delving into Northern Africa. The restaurant is decorated with a Spanish feel and has tables packed in pretty close together so you can get a good look at what your neighbours are eating and perhaps make a new friend or two as well.

Service was mostly friendly - the Serbian restaurant manager was keen for a chat and to tell us about the second branch of Tapas y Vino which will be opening in Kew. The other staff were less friendly though possibly more Spanish.

The wine list had a good range of prices, though I was disappointed not to see a few more Spanish options on the list. We choose a mid-priced Rioja which was very enjoyable.

Favorite Dish: We were pleasantly surprised by the food - it was actually pretty good. We started with Toast of Catalan bread topped with goats cheese, and the Spanish cured Iberian Jabugo ham. I do love a good goats cheese, and this one was smoky and rich.

To follow we had three of the 'speciality tapas' - the Scallops with risotto and squid ink sauce, the Oxtail in red wine, potatoes & carrots, and the Snails with Jabugo ham cooked in pastry. The scallops were my favourite, and I love how your tongue goes so black from the squid ink ; )

We weren't completely full, so decided to have a dessert as well. How could we resist the Chocolate & Almond Bastilla - a flaky pastry parcel filled with oozy chocolate mixed with almonds. It was evil.
