    • SmartShanghai.com Editor's Description
      The latest concept from Willy Trullas Moreno, Tomatito is a casual, colorful and quirky Spanish tapas bar. The menu comprises mostly Spanish classics, like pork and chicken croquetas, patatas bravas, tortillas and albondigas all done with Willy's personal touch, of course. Other offerings skew more toward Latin America with Peruvian ceviches and tiraditos.

    They say reviews should be "useful" so I'll try to keep that as the theme.

    I did a work dinner here for 14 people and I would say this was the best social work dinner experience I've had in a long time. (Social work meaning internal and fun, not a serious business meeting).

    First, Agnes the Filipina manager 110% took care of us, from the moment we made the reservation days prior all the way through the entire dinner. Even when the restaurant was packed and she was in charge of everything she was still constantly pouring refills into our drinks, still serving us bottles up to the very end, it was impressive. She made everything easy, and made everything work with no hiccups.

    The menu was a set menu for 300 rmb including 11 tapas, 2 desserts, and free flow sangria, wine, and beer for two hours. No doubt that Shanghai is getting expensive, but you can't beat that for less than 50 US. And it was more food than anyone could have asked for, everyone left stuffed. Quality food, it came out promptly and on time, and people in the group were commenting on it / complimenting it all night. People were still talking about how great the overall dinner experience was the following day.

    You put those two things together and if you are organizing a social work dinner for a large group -- you cannot beat this in my opinion. Only downside the seating is a tad tight so I'm almost certain we were bothering/bumping into the couple behind us, but just because the tables were so close. And the music was some awkward mix of 90s rock pop mix of songs from high school. Thought if they would have played some (insert upbeat Mediterranean folk flamenco artist but have no idea who the hell that would be, or something like Cesaria Evora), would have made the vibe even that much better.

    10 out of 10 on the social work dinner though. Also went to a birthday party there another time which also was a home run. Hope you find that useful.

    I had the best of meals, I had the worst of meals. Tomatito gave me two very different experiences when visiting the restaurant on separate occasions:

    First the good:

    Went with my spouse for a dinner date and had a great meal. The charcuterie and cheese + nuts were excellent and highly recommended. Every tapas small plate we had was good. No complaints. And a nice deal of a pitcher of sangria to go with.

    The restaurant is nicely decorated, warm and cozy. Service was fine. Value for the money on par with expectations.

    Then the 2nd visit: Brunch.

    Brunch on a Sunday was like visiting a different establishment.

    Out of our group of 6, not one of us left pleased or satisfied. The chicken was one of the driest, bland, and inedible pieces of meat I've had in Shanghai. Unfortunately this is not an exaggeration.

    To make matters worse, the cuddlefish was even more inedible. I wouldn't have fed it to my cat.

    One positive I will give the service, was that they did replace one friend's cuddlefish with a different dish upon request.

    Bottomline:
    Skip brunch at Tomatito and go for dinner.

    I hear good things about Bull & Claw's brunch, as well as numerous other options around the city. SmSh has a whole article profiling brunch spots, and you can be sure to leave Tomatito's off the list.

    I love the fact that I walk along a dark alleyway to a hutong-like courtyard, past locals peddling their imitation wares to arrive at - ta da - a sexy tapas bar. I hoped for at least an average dining experience, as I very much like the idea of getting sexy tapas in a hutong.
    Sexy tapas did far better than average. We were a loud group of 15 incapable of collective decisions on precisely which tapas to order. So we let the lovely host pick the food to go with the jugs of Sangria and wine.
    I am by no means an expert of tapas, given that my only other experience with that sort of Spanish fare are the ones they served at Malabar - which, by the way, my neighbour from Madrid says is just 'mediocre' and I agree - BUT tomatito's tapas was exciting and absolutely delectable! Judging by how quick the food arrived and disappeared, I'd say the rest of the crew agreed with me. Oh and the Spanish rep in our midst looked positively sated too.
    It definitely helps that the staff was pleasant and cheerful, the decor quirky & fun and the tab around 300 each for ALL that good food, sangria and wine. Will definitely be back!
    Mind blowing food!

    I went to tomatito two nights ago for the first time and was mind blown by the food. Fresh ingredients cooked in a very imaginative way yet simple enough to make you feel comfortable. Every bite was a pleasant surprise! The portions were just right for the price which i found relatively cheap for the quality of the food.
    However, the service was unfortunately not adequate. The waiters kept messing up our order and bringing us the wrong food and it took around 15' minutes and a lot of effort to pay the bill. I initailly tried to pay by card, but there was some problem with the machine so my card went through twice. I didn't realise that in the begining so i also gave them cash. Only when i asked the manager whether I had just paid 3 times, they realised their mistake. They did give me my money back but I never received a single apology, which i think would have been common courtesy.
    I will definitely go back in hope that the service can keep up with the brilliant chef!

    I am a useful customer´s "willy" restaurant in shanghai. Just this last friday, i had visited TOMATITO. my real thinking before go, was "another tapas bar in shanghai". i must to say than im really surprise about the good quality in food with a cheaper price. Ladies, gentleman, friends....if you need a dinner in middle of shanghai, its one of the best options in our loved city.doesn´t matter if you go with a couple, friends, or invite some customers...sure gonna enjoy.There are 2 souls at this restaurant, one its willy trullas touch (after 5 years in shanghai, i know fine his style), and another its his chef Alvaro, he stay at all places at same time, kitchen , snack bar, on tables talking with customers...Remember friends that a good restaurant its not only food...its service, price,etc. My congratulations for this new restaurant.
    after have a dinner you have a good option to have a coffe and some spirits at OCHO cocktail bar, just in the foloowing floor.

    Tomatito is brilliant. Located up a flight of stairs in the new Taixing Road courtyard area ("go past the bewildered guards and turn right," or, "follow the foreigner on the moped down that alley"), the el Willy concept is spot on.

    Facing a wide array of menu choices, we went with the server/hostess's recommendations. We stuck with the small plates, a mix of seafood and various meats, all delicious, creative and well executed. The chef visited the table to say hi and check on us (and no, they did not recognize that I am that occasional, yet killer food blogger on SmartSH - just two brothers out for dinner).

    The bar area also heated up around the time we were leaving - not really sure you can stop by without a reservation, but the vibe was great. You definitely will need a reservation for the weekend. We followed up the night by popping upstairs to the Japanese bar - a perfect night. I'll be back before you can say "Barthalona."
