Cafe Ba-Ba-Reeba!


Tapas and Paella

Cafe Ba-Ba-Reeba!, Chicago's first Spanish restaurant, serves fresh, authentic Spanish cuisine in a lively, vibrant Latin atmosphere.

Chef Gabino Sotelino's menu features Spanish tapas, hot and cold appetizers meant for sharing, as well as paella, a typical Valencian rice dish made with vegetables and meat or seafood. You'll be tempted by the Pintxos ("peen-chos"), one or two bite snacks popular in Northern Spain, which are the perfect way to sample your way through the vast Mediterranean menu.

Everything goes well with Sangria, a famous wine "fiesta" drink made from fresh fruit, wine and liquor. Don't miss the large outdoor patio decorated with the sights and colors of Spain.

Chef Sotelino, whose talents have led to command performances for King Juan Carlos, created Cafe Ba-Ba-Reeba! to reflect his love of la cocina de España (Spanish cuisine). Once you experience the distinct flavors of Spain, we bet you'll be in love too.
