A distinctive dining experience that guests won't soon forget. . .
The Cazbah is a tapas restaurant and wine bar located in downtown Greenville, South Carolina — a destination for creative, sophisticated, high-energy diners. A place where the tapas menu is as inspired as the local artwork on the walls, the wine list has a cult following, and the atmosphere is sleek and sexy.
Our guests love the casual, communal dining experience that a tapas style meal provides--perfect for sharing and tailor-made for enjoying slowly with a glass or a bottle from our impressive wine list. The menu changes quarterly, so even our regulars get a chance to try something new.
According to legend, the tradition of tapas originated in the 1200s with King Alfonso the Wise. To prevent the health issues associated with drinking on an empty stomach, the king declared that no tavern could serve alcohol unless the beverage was accompanied by a serving of food. To get around the law, taverns began serving very small amounts of food with their wine — and thus was born the tapa. Alfonso was a pretty wise king after all.
Our restaurant features a unique menu and wine list with menu items changing quarterly.

(Hint: "We will definitely be back.")
The food was absolutely amazing, the atmosphere was relaxing, and I could not get enough of that raspberry brie! We definitely will be back.
Cocktails were great as was the service. First, we tried the calamari and lobster cigars. The flavor was incredible as was the presentation. The portion sizes were also much bigger than we thought. Next, we tried the sesame seared tuna and their sushi. Again, good sized portions and wonderful flavor. Lastly we tried the chipotle duck & mozzarella stuffed chicken meat-a-balls. We capped the meal off with their salted brownie. This place was awesome! We will definitely be back.
I loved the Cazbah! The food was great (you HAVE to order the shrimp and grits), the service was excellent, and the atmosphere is upscale but comfortable. We'll definitely be back.
