Immediately upon arrival into Café Espanol you are welcomed by the sound of cheerful Spanish music accompanied by the blending of margaritas and the mixing of their heavenly sangria. Café Espanol’s attitude suggests you leave your cares at the door and enjoy a drink, tasty food and great company. The staff and owner are without fail friendly, accommodating and eager to please. The food is festive, bountiful and delicious, not once has anything I ordered not lived up to my expectations. The atmosphere is a concoction of comfort, liveliness and neighborhood brewed with true Spanish flare. Whether out with family, friends or date, Espanol is the place.

I recently went to cafe espanol and the experience was very mediocre to kinda bad.... The restaurant itself looks tired. Needs a decor update desperately, along with a menu revamping. The dishes seemed very boring. Not to mention, my shrimp was stringy and old tasting. I won't be going back....

Went here two years ago and have been back at least once a month ever since. Food is very good, large portions. It is a busy place, with several of the neighborhood people returning often. Staff are polite and service is very good. The atmosphere is what you make it.

so many spanish restaurnts a pretentious. this place doest strike a trendy pose. it maintains some old-fashioned new-york spanish cliches such as serving corn chips and uninspired salads. they are complementary however. this generosity is very genuinely spanish as in spain.-- even these offerings aren,t very sapnish. the seafood is dependably fresh., the sangria is agreat value(OFTEN SERVED WITH A SPLASHOF LICOR 41). the service is professional and genial. ists a deal and its good, so go.

Hey all, Went to Cafe Espanol on Carmine recently because I was in the mood for Spanish and it was close to the Film Forum. I have to say the food was just uninspiring and somewhat boring. The atmosphere is kind of old fashioned and a bit tacky... The service was good, but that's about all it has going for it. While it was ok value, I do not think I will return anytime soon.

What a great little place. We had a fantastic meal here recently. My husband had the lobster which he raved about. I had the garlic shrimp which was absolutely delicious. The sangria was awesome too!
