Omg…Where do I start? Poor parking, poor service, food wasn’t good nor was it Latin/Spanish cuisine. It was a waste of time and money. NEVER again.

Loved booking here through OpenTable. Perfect for small gathering and dare night. Definitely try paella and happy hour cocktails.
If you can withstand the slow elevator to the rooftop Luna rooftop bar awaits with same cocktails as Bulla's.
Great service and food is even better than I remember. True Spanish tapas bar of TPA!

Service was terrible—never came around to check on us. One dish was not hot and he went back to kitchen with air quotes that it wasn’t hot despite cheese being dried out on the dish. Had he been around he would have known within 3 minutes but disappeared for 15 minutes.

It was my second time there and it was great! Our server was Madison and she was so sweet and made great recommendations. We ordered the rose sangria - delicious. We did the cheese board, jalapeño cerviche, chorizo cheese dip, and the octopus salad and between 2 of us, it filled us up. For dessert, I forgot the name of it but Madi recommended it and it was amazing. I absolutely love this place!

I love the food at Bulla, but honestly, our waitress, Andrea, made the whole afternoon so incredible. She was just amazing!! So kind and so patient with our (rather picky) table. If you’re lucky enough to get her, you’ll be in for a wonderful dining experience!

We were there for an hour and the service was so slow. We eventually paid for our drinks and left. If they were extremely busy it would’ve been one thing, but they weren’t. The waiter was also pretentious and kept correcting our pronunciations. Unless you’re a native Spanish speaker you’re going to have to just do your best and point to what you want. If I wanted a lesson I’d get on duolingo. I feel like this is a place where people go to be seen, if that’s your scene, you’ll probably love it. I did give a star for the pear sangria, it is delicious.

We’ve done tapas at a Michelin 1-star in NYC and the best tapas bar in London and Bulla matched both in all aspects. Great job by Gwendlyne and the rest of the staff. We will be back and will recommend Bulla to anyone asking for a good place to eat in Tampa. Boo-Ya!

We went for lunch. Food was great and I love the Pick 2 menus. Had the paella which was good with a Sangria.
Few servers so service was slower. She worked hard to take care of the tables but needed another server.
Other than that, great place great food.

The food is AMAZING! Come with a lot of people so you can try so many different plates of food. There is something for everyone. Vegetables, bread, sea food, beef, chicken, pizza. Small plates so you get a taste of everything! Don't miss Bulla Gastrobar!

We ordered the calamari which only had about 12 pieces in it. We were starving by the time it came and we literally thought they forgot the other portion of the app. I’ve never had a smaller app portion for the price point. Service was slow bc they were slammed. Our server was actually very nice and ended up comping the other app we ordered. They were out of 3-4 apps and overall, I won’t be going back. I’ll spend my money elsewhere

The waitress was great, on top of everything, very friendly. Our only issue was that we ordered a few plates that were supposed to come in different orders, however they brought all of them at the same time, so by the time we got to some they were already cold. But the food was delicious!
