Went for Sunday Bruch. Loved the food, and the Bloody Mary’s were perfect. They were both smoky and spicy.

First time eating here and it is very good. We had tapas; potato bravas, octopus, shrimp, calamari, mushrooms. All were excellent. Creative cocktails. Great decor and it was lively. Only complaint is that it was very noisy, though it was a crowded Saturday night. All...More

The menu is eclectic, featuring dishes you won’t find just anywhere. You can go small plates or more traditional with appetizers and full plate entrees or Aventura’s signature Paella platters more than adequate for 2-3 diners. We went with a friend and combined small plates...More

I’ve been all over Spain, and this restaurant beats any place there! Plus, it’s the best place in Ann Arbor anyway. Everyone recommended it, and I know why!

Loved this Spanish tapas place on a recent trip to Ann Arbor. Outside seating was nice. Waitress was very informative and knew the menu well. Excellent options. We tried five different tapas and they were all excellent. Would definitely come here again!

The food is delicious here but it’s the service that is the best!! I was craving a latte and our waiter and one of the managers - Chris - went to Starbucks and got me one as the restaurant didn’t have an espresso machine. Amazing!!...More

We have been dinning here for many years and just recently they changed chefs and menus. Not a good move as they remove some of the best items on the menu as well as change the ingredients and presentation of many staple tapas dishes. It’s...More

An experience to remember. The tapas offered is an amazing array of tasty bites that excite and please the palate. It is indeed an exciting experience, from selecting a plate from the menu to its arrival and then doing it all over again. A cocktail...More

When restaurateur Sava Farah acquired Ann Arbor’s 2nd oldest building, she immediately fell in love with the history, the patina, the personality, but perhaps most significantly, with–a table. She gathered her friends around that table, in the cavern-like basement of this building, and was immediately transported to another place. Old World, wine and cheese, music and conversation, candlelight… tapas. That same table now sits in the middle of Aventura restaurant, a continuing symbol of Sava and her team’s coming together over the love of authentic Spanish cuisine and culture; tapas, paella, cocas, vino, gin tonics. We invite you to eat, drink, laugh and linger here; to enjoy the company of those you love as well as those you don’t yet know. Aventura is a love affair… a Cupid's arrow from us to you.
