Us Dutchies love Spain and everything about this country including its food, wines, sangria and night life. That´s why it´s no surprise that you can find several Spanish Tapas restaurants in The Netherlands!
The newest and trendiest restaurant of Delden, Casa de Tapas, is a fantastic place where you will be spoiled with very tasteful and wonderful tapas. The restaurant is located in the oldest restaurant facility of the picturesque village.
The beautiful old horse stable, dating from 1739, has been transformed into Casa de Tapas and does its honor.
The look and feel is indeed very Spanish but with a trendy and joyful ambiance.
Particularly nice is the touch of the Spanish artist Salvador Dali which can be recognized in the interior and sometimes even in the dishes; colorful Mediterranean tapas with in a delicate design of the characteristic mustache of Dali.
The menu is not too extensive and that is good. Spanish cuisine is not known for its light dishes! It's more about the character and that’s beautifully balanced here.
We find a wide variety of tapas that goes from sweet potatoes, sizzling gambas, cherry tomatoes filled with herb cream cheese wrapped with marinated zucchini and sunflower seeds, manchego with mango chutney, lamb cutlet with lime and sea salt in thyme oil, baby portobello with fried onion, dates and goat cheese, lava cake and Panna cotta with red fruit and ice cream to pinchos.
The wine list has the same philosophy: not too much but full of character.
Casa de Tapas offer you the experience of going away, while you can stay in your own city.
Definitely worth stopping by! You will be received with a warm welcome by the very friendly maître Jasper and his family.
“At the age of six I wanted to be a cook. At seven I wanted to be Napoleon. And my ambition has been growing steadily ever since. ”
