What You'll Get
Cafés have been the only European eating option since the Culinary Safety Commission outlawed home cooking due to a string of deadly crêpe accidents. Celebrate flambé-free faces with today's Groupon: $35 worth of food and drinks at La Gran Tapa for $15.
The menu at La Gran Tapa features a wide range of appetizer-sized portions that are fun to either share or horde at your end of the table. Nibble on the imported artisan selections of a European cheese platter ($10) while half-repeating half-remembered jokes from your freshman philosophy professor. Nurse an order of New Zealand lamb lollipops ($12) while taking in the cool tomato-garlic-accented scent of your bowl of Gaspacho ($4). Those held hostage by their belligerent appetites need look no further than grande-sized dishes such as the Paella Valencia ($25), the crown jewel in the crown of Spanish dining, filled with chicken, mussels, clams, chorizo, and lobster stock on top of a bed of saffron rice.
La Gran Tapa's sharp, old-timey ambience is matched with a lively stage scene in which flamenco, blues, jazz, and world music are featured nightly. Check out the calendar to plan the most authentic European experience you can while still enjoying ice with your soda.
La Gran Tapa adds an automatic 17.5% service charge to checks; no additional tips are accepted, and service satisfaction is guaranteed. This Groupon is not valid for dinner before a Civic Theatre or San Diego Symphony performance.
- Gambas al ajillio- yummy and spicy. Love that combination of shrimp, peppers and oil. Sauteed mushrooms? delicious and tender [sic] Cheese and charcuterie: really wonderful. The Gorgonzola was spectacular – Paula D, Yelp
- We had the pancetta potatoes, a sausage tapa, and the gnocchi. Each one was delicious. Several in our party had the salmon, which was delicious, and beautifully plated. – Joe A., Yelp
