MENU AT THE VENGA RESTAURANT & TAPAS BAR

Tapas is a way of life in much of Spain; generally ‘small plates’ of simple ingredients cooked well and then enjoyed over the course of an evening with drinks and  friends.

At Venga they serve the Tapas as soon as it is prepared; because different dishes take different times to make, it probably won’t come all at once! Most people like 2 to 4 dishes per person or prefer to order loads for the whole table and then share.
