  • "Have been to Finos on several occasions and never been disappointed. You are always made to feel welcome and when the owner is in he always takes time to come and speak to you. The food is good value at £15.95 for unlimited tapas and there are plenty of dishes to choose from , all tasting great. I am looking forward to my next visit and would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a great night out. "

  • "We visited Fino's At The Waterfront for pre theatre food and drinks and I would definitely recommend to anyone. It was the eat all you can eat special deal, together with children eat free that caught our attention! The service was brilliant, a member of our party had a dairy allergy and the staff were very helpful pointing out the food options available which were non dairy. The food was delicious, we would definitely call again when visiting Southport."
    dined on 06/04/2014
  • "We visited Finos before a theatre visit. The service was very quick and friendly. There was a huge selection of dishes and they were all delicious. The all you can eat buffet was great value for money and we certainly didn't go home hungry! I would definitely recommend this restaurant."
    dined on 05/04/2014
  • "great food, helpful staff, good choice of drinks, well worth a visit"
    dined on 03/04/2014
  • "Every time I go to Fino's it is so good that I thought I'd best review it! I have been several times for lunch and dinner and both the lunch deal (3 tapas for £6.95) and the unlimited tapas deal (£13.95) are from the same menu. The menu has so many different choices you'll find it hard to decide what to have first. My favourite dish has to be the pan fried poco chorizo! The albondigas, patatas bravas and paella are also personal favourites. The service is faultless, the staff are really friendly and can't do enough for you. I can wholeheartedly recommend the churros for dessert too. After having studied in Spain for six months, this is genuinely the closest I've ever come to having authentic Spanish tapas outside of Spain. Book now!!"
    dined on 30/03/2014

  • "Valentine's night at Finos. Easy to book on line. Ambiance was great, singer and piano, service great, quite quick, food excellent, all you can eat for £13.95. Kept bringing varieties of tapas all night long, as many as you could eat each. Delicious. Quite small portions however this did not matter as you could just order more included in the price. Recommend chorizo in honey and orange, delicious. Only downside had to pay extra £5.95 for Gambas Pili Pili, bit steep. At the end waitress gave the wife a fresh red rose, great touch. Toilets were spotless, hand wash/moisturizers even in the gents. Total cost for whole night including wine and other drinks was £54, amazing value. Highly recommend to anyone. Our 2nd visit, will be back soon"
    dined on 14/02/2014

    dined on 05/01/2014
  • "Went with friends for New Years Eve Booked table for 7.45 We weren't seated till 8.10pm It took ages to get a drink from the bar They were short staffed so they did quite well to keep up ! The food was good,tho some of the dishes were VERY small Loved the mushrooms We waited quite a while between orders We ordered three rounds of food. We enjoyed our evening. Not sure if I would go again ."
    dined on 31/12/2013
  • "4 of us met up for a chat at Finos, attracted by the unlimited tapas menu... Good choices, very fast service, great quality. Only one gripe -Piano Andy was uncomfortably loud... we will be back :-)"
    dined on 06/12/2013
  • "Previously had paella!! Mmmmm!! First time tapas banqueting - Excellent result!!"
    dined on 22/11/2013
  • "The food is great. The portions are tiny, 6 olives or 4 bite size chunks of chorizo does not a tapas make. Llimited to ordering 3 at a time, which don't arrive together. Bread & olives with charcuterie & cheese was bread, then olives, then three slices of meat & cheese. I understand why it would make it easier for staff to have customers order at the host station, but limiting orders & the self service element makes this like painfully slow fast food not a quality restaurant. On weekdays, last orders is at 9, The kitchen lights are turned off & the chef waves the customers goodbye as he leaves at 9.05 so don't go after 7pm unless you want tapas a Big Mac & fries tapas from over the bridge. Sort it out Finos. You really could be 5 star!"
    dined on 21/11/2013
  • "Not the first time that we have been here but we had just got engaged and fancied a day out in southport. Spa,food and then the cinema. The food was fantastic and made even better by the £9.99 buffet type menu,excellent value."
    dined on 19/11/2013
  • "We have been go Finos a number of times and always loved it. However they now ask you to get up to order your own meals and again if you require a sweet. WE much preferred go be fully waited on and liked the old way of ordering better too."
    dined on 02/11/2013
  • "I went to this restaurant with my husband and friend the other night. It was £13.95 for all you can eat tapas. There was only one other table there on a Fridy night! The food was in child size portions (we regularly have tapas and this was rediculous) The food was bland and had no flavor at all! We kept ordering more to see if anything was nice but nothing was!"
    dined on 01/11/2013
  • "We took advantage of the special offer on 18th October - All You Can Eat for £9.99. The options were varied and on the whole the food was very tasty, except the meatballs which were a but dry and like eating cardboard. The staff were very friendly and helpful. As it was the first night of this offer I think they were overwhelmed by the number of Customers and at times struggled to cope. We had to wait 40 minutes before getting our first drink and as we could see our drinks at the bar we went over to get them rather than wait for them to be brought over. Not a good start but it did improve after that. Overall it was a good evening and the special offer meant great value for money."
    dined on 18/10/2013
  • "A great spot for pre-concert dining, this was my second visit. This time round I was enjoying an early bird before going to see hats off to Led Zeppelin at the Southport theatre. Prompt and friendly service, good value and tasty food in a stylish (but not off-puttingly poseurish) environment. Nice background music too.I will come here again and I recommend it to you, either for a pre-theatre meal or perhaps - as I intend next time - a longer, more lingering visit."
    dined on 11/10/2013
  • "Not had Tapas before staff very helpful very good both fed for £20 inc. our tip. Décor a bit gaudy."
    dined on 13/09/2013
  • "we have visited Finos before and always loved our meals. Last week was no different except the service was even better than usual. we had limited time as were going to the theatre but were dealt with quickly and efficiently by welcoming staff and management. I highly recommend to everyone. Great food and a great place."
    dined on 24/08/2013
  • "The restaurant was very quite on the Sunday evening that we visited. The food and wine was of a good quality and made for was most enjoyable evening. The experience was complimented by the good service provided by the young and helpful waiter."
    dined on 11/08/2013
  • "Booked a table for 10. Even got in touch direct with manager at Fino's advising this was a special occasion and requested best secluded table at 7pm as it was to celebrate my mothers 60th birthday. The manager (Bob) had agreed this seating area and said it was there best seating over looking the lake. Turned up at 7pm and there was no table reserved! Had to wait to be seated for 15 minutes. They pushed 2 tables together in the middle of the restaurant. They apologised that they didn't keep our table reserved? Very disappointed we were close to walking out. The food was excellent but all this fuss before put a downer on the experience!!!"
    dined on 10/08/2013
  • "Service was horrendously slow, in a restaurant that was pretty empty for a Friday night. Defiantly didn't need to book at this place. Service was so slow they lost out on orders from us, what's the point in cheese when the wine has gone! Slow slow slow from start to finish, very poor. Music was awful, random mix of tunes did not create a Spanish feel at all! Food was lovely though! The problem was getting to order it! Every where was clean to."
    dined on 19/07/2013
  • "I have been to Finos a few times and have enjoyed my previous visits however, on this occasion the service was extremely poor. We were served by four different staff, one was quite pleasant, one was indifferent and the other two appeared rude and disinterested."
    dined on 13/07/2013
  • "Booked for 6:30 thinking it was plenty of time before the show started at 8 pm. Service was pretty slow on behalf of waiting-on staff. Food was excellent. Paella was outstanding value at £24.95 for four people.Sadly it didn't have the crunchy authentic base as I think the pan was too deep to achieve that. No time for dessert as it was then 7:50 when paying. The staff just need to be on the ball quicker. The couple that came in after us were given menus before us and had the drinks on the table and order taken before we got a menu."
    dined on 15/06/2013
  • "My wife and I went to Fino's to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We have been on a previous occasion. It was a quiet night (Tuesday), not helped by poor weather. However, the restaurant was clean, bright and comfortable. The staff were attentative and informative regarding the meals available. The quality of the food is very good and the portions are generous. (We actually took some of the unfinished food home, after the staff offered to box it for us). As frequent travellers to Spain, the paella was as good as that in Spain. Will definitely go again."
    dined on 11/06/2013
  • "This was a third visit to the restaurant, the previous being a quick lunch, the 2nd being an evening meal, however this was a family occasion, in which we had booked a table for 6 of us, wanting to share oue experience with our family. The meal met everyone's expectations, positive remarks all round, we did not feel rushed, the food was all freshly prepared, and I had promised myself a paella on one of our visits. I have to be honest I have had Paella in Spain on a few occasions and have been disppointed, the Mixed Paella I had at Fino's I thought was superior and will certainly having again, the only slight down side was the top of the paella was only warm, but underneath it was piping hot. Staff were helpful and polite."
    dined on 04/05/2013
  • "Usually excellent, but service rather lacking this time. Waited nearly 20'minutes for our wine to arrive & then it wasn't the one on the wine list. We asked to see the dessert menu but no-one came to take our order so we paid and left! To finish on a more positive note, our food was of the usual very high quality."
    dined on 27/04/2013
  • "Happy at warm reception, from the one waiter working that night! Only 2 tables were occupied when our party of four arrived, but service on drinks was very slow, as the waiter was also the bartender. We changed our order for drinks as no Campari available. Three of our party chose to have tapas. I chose monkfish tails....they had none. I eventually chose pasta. I asked for parmesan cheese, they had none. I was offered an alternative, which I accepted. However food was very good, and the waiter endeavoured to accomodate us, as far as was possible. This evening was a birthday celebration, which proved to be a disappointment due to the lack of atmosphere. Having said all of this, we will revisit at some point, because the food was really good"
    dined on 05/04/2013
  • "Went there for the first time in a chilly spring evening. The food was great and service attentive. It would be nicer in summer when you can take a walk outside afterwards."
    dined on 05/04/2013
  • "Lovely surroundings but chicken was not cooked in the middle ad when pointed out at the end was advised should of said earlier. Feel that drinks should of been knocked off the bill or meal not payed for as could see hardly been touched. Was a shame as was really lookin forward to it"
