Tapas-style dining allows you to sample lots of different dishes. You can order as little or as much as you'd like to suit your appetite. Firefly, on Paradise Road, is one of two tapas restaurants in Vegas. I can't speak about Cafe Ba Ba Reeba (at the Fashion Mall), but Firefly's menu is an infusion of Spanish, Asian, and other food flavors.We went with friends, and I recommend you do the same. It's more fun, and you can order more and sample more.Their mojitos (a minty Cuban rum drink) tasted pretty authentic though I'm not a fan. I preferred their sangria; fruity and just as refreshing on a warm evening.I can't describe all the dishes we had that night. After the alcohol, can you blame me? I can say nothing was horrible. Some dishes that stand out were the empanadas, the crispy duck rolls, the lamb chops, shrimp, and BBQ skewers. The thing about going with friends is that everyone will like something different.For dessert, we were pretty unanimous in that we all liked the Tres Leches chocolate cake and the flan. It's not too expensive, and the atmosphere is relaxed. Their lighting is dim in some corners, but if you're just a couple, dining by candlelight is pretty romantic. Have fun!
