Starters and Tapas

Tapas dishes are all starter sized and any can be ordered as a starter to go before a main course.  If you order a selection of tapas for your entire meal, we recommend approximately four each.

Unless you request otherwise, tapas dishes will arrive more or less altogether

Tapas means “lid” in Spanish. It is rumoured that Andalusian bar owners placed edible lids over drinks to stop the flies attacking & tapas took off from there!

  1. Thankyou Martin for the most beautiful meal I have eaten out for a long time, no-one seems to take pride in the food they serve anymore but Its quite obvious you do. Your garlic mushrooms are the best I have ever tasted in my life, they are to die for!!! Also the Beef Pepe was so tender it melted in my mouth. Congratulations on serving the most delicious food. Thankyou also for the complimentary drinks. Can’t wait to eat at Volare again. Cheers, from Carolyn.
