Among the tapas bars on Commercial Drive, Latin Quarter has the most authentically Spanish feel, complemented byhospitality as warm as the Mediterranean Sea. You definitely can’t miss it ― a bright, fire engine red exterior makes this restaurant an eye-catching sight for those wandering the strip in the evenings. With two cozy rooms, red and white checked tablecloths, all in a warm candlelit atmosphere, the Latin Quarter transports you away to another world.
Eat, Drink, Dance?
At Latin Quarter, salsa is not just served as a side dish. Get your dancing shoes on because the little stage by the window has become home for some fine local musicians that add a bit of extra Latin flavour to the evening. Every day features a different musical showcase, from solo Spanish guitarists, to gypsy music and jazz. Of course, the weekends fill up with Latin music lovers ready to salsa and merenge. There’s just never a dull moment!
Latin Quarter is known for its extensive tapas menu with dishes of delicate flavours that will make you want to keep topping it on tapa. Best known for their signature selection - Paella – and, of course, their other seafood choices, Latin Quarter has a well-rounded menu of delectable foods for reasonable prices. Make sure you get your share of Spanish rice and don’t forget to enjoy local and imported beers and ales to compliment your meal. Or, go all the way and Latin-up your night with sensational Sangria. More likely than not, you may find you just have to salsa!
