Desde España a Amberes
Catalan tapas bar with Moorish influence, echoing the ways things are done in the Basque country. Tio gives a proper taste of laid-back Spain with its chipirones, blistered Padrón peppers and croquetas de jamón Ibérico, not to mention a serious list of mediterranean wines. The food and the vibe offer true escapism, so you’ll feel you’re in Madrid rather than Marnixplaats.
If you are looking for an informal Spanish hangout to bite into a simple yet perfect pan con tomate, sourdough bread rubbed with garlic and spread with crushed fresh tomatoes, Tio is the place! Our dishes give a nod to Catalan tradition with our own contemporary spin. We rely on prime ingredients and our version here matches anything you’ve eaten on the Iberian peninsula. Also our heated outdoor area welcomes you every month of the year.
No matter your food preference, we’ve got you covered! Whether you are vegetarian, vegan, pregnant or gluten free, you will be very well catered for at Tio. Just let our staff know about your dietary requirements and we’ll make sure to serve your food the way you like it.
What We're About?
Our daily made tapas are based on the principles of Spanish cuisine: simple, fresh ingredients cooked with passion and plenty of flavour. We constantly work on our menu to bring new and exciting recipes whilst keeping our signature Spanish classics. Our chargrilled sea bass and slow-cooked iberico lagrimas are not to be missed, but keep some room for our delectable churros con chocolate. ¡Delicioso!
The wine list is worth careful consideration: our œnophile creators have curated an exceptional assortment of unusual Spanish delicacies that fits perfectly with our menu.
Because sharing is caring! And these little plates are oh so tempting and delightful. Tio’s rich menu captures the flavours of the sun, and our dishes will satisfy even those with big appetites. ¡Todos son bienvenidos!
