Searched for an old thread on Tapas and did not really find a good one...maybe this will start one...

What is the best Tapas restaurant in Austin??? Let the debate begin...

    There aren't many options:

    - Malaga (www.malagatapasbar.com) which I think is mediocre at best

    - Fino (www.finoaustin.com/fino/dinner/) where the selection is limited but the food is outstanding (small plates)

      Saba at happy hour is the best bang for the buck on tapas, but it works better with a group - too much food for just a couple.

          We found a place called 219 West on 4th that had very good tapas and a great bar...not outstanding food...but very good food and a great atmosphere...
