Sit, Sip, Relax...

Our mission statement

First of all...

Welcome, from owners Kim Clark and Chef Robert Moltzan. This Wine Bar/Restaurant is a result of two lost souls finding each other, and making a commitment to not only each other but to you our guests...neither of us could have done this alone...together we ask you to please share in our happiness. 

Our goal here at Tapas 1 is simple... relax, get away from the distractions that are called life. No verbal cell phone usage and no televisions will help you reach that goal. Practice the lost art of conversation. Enjoy friends or loved ones. "Take a breath, take a sip and relax..." we hope you have a fantastic experience with us.

Special Events and Catering

Our restaurant is available for private events: business lunches, wine & beer dinners and tastings, receptions, cooking classes and more. We would love to discuss how to be a part of your next event. Sunday Brunch, for more info check out our Face Book Page.

Seasonal and Local

We refuse to compromise on quality in our restaurant. That's why we source as many  fresh ingredients as possible from local farmers markets and vendors.

Florida Weekly

 “Chef Moltzan is a consummate creative. He’s charismatic yet humble; has outrageously sensational food ideas, yet knows how to break it down into a practical method. Most of all, he is passionate about creating great food.

I gravitate toward people like him. They are the ones I admire and want to follow.
— Kathy Grey, Editor, Florida Weekly

"Chef Robert Moltzan master of palette and plate, plans a new restaurant in North Port."

-Sue Wade, Columnist, Port Charlotte Sun Herald

Harbor Style Magazine

"If you haven't had a chance to experience the Tapas Culinary experience, head out to Tapas 1 hungry with plenty of time to explore the menu. It's also a great choice after a long, late day at work when a full meal may seem way to much or when you cant decide what you have a taste for..."

-Michael Stampar, Review, Harbor Style
