Went to Andalucia for a pre-theatre meal. It was busy and the waiter looked a little bit stressed even though there aren't many tables. Our selection of tapas was delicious and the glass of wine I had was OK. Thought it was pretty good value for what we had. Will go back.

We were 10 mins late because the traffic was bad and it was raining and when we arrived they had given our table to someone else. Would have been nice if someone had bothered to call us to ask if we were coming!

Terrible, Terrible and Terrible! I wouldn't go back even if the food was free. Who would like to eat that I have no idea. Shocking!
Ordered bread with tomato sauce (twas not bread, twas soggy bun!) Prawns, 5 small overcooked prawns appeared and were too dry to eat. For the main I had salmon and potatoes - both smelled disgusting as just defrosted and cooked in oil that quite possibly was not changed in years! Potatoes smelled stale from that awful oil - honestly, it was awful! The waiter (the owner) came to tell me that there's nothing wrong with it and they use the best oil...yeah, right! Who does that? Arguing with a customer instead of accepting the, very, visible fault. I am sorry but this place should close as you'd probably get a stomach poisoning. Sorry but to advertise Andalucian restaurant in this way is quite embarrassing, to say the least. 0 points

thank you for dining with us. we always use best ingredients and the pan con tomate (bread with tomatoe and garlic) (after we add extra virgin olive oil) we keep it in the fridge. We have to and most people enjoy it. but it is a pity you did not mention it on the day, I could have given you the warmer alternative. I hope we see you again. Please tell the waitress and have it on the house and enjoy making it.

The food was awful, dried out, the dish was warm but the inside of the food cold and bland. Although the ambience is nice and the staff pleasant. I would not recommend eating here. The wine list however is extensive.

As I look at your review and that of your other companion below, I am disappointed as to why you would try to do unwarranted damage to the business, especially in a such dates. Looking at your reviews, you can see you are surrendered by a 4 and a 5 star reviews and that is because Andalucia restaurant is one of the best value for money if not the best in the whole of the west end of London. I Say no more …..

If you like Spanish food, there are much better places to go in London. The service is good but the food was mediocre and for what it was too pricey. Tourist trap.

I love this friendly cosy restaurant that is away from the crowds, but conveniently located for a pre-theatre meal. The house red is good, the spinach crepe is delicious and the crèma Catalana is to die for.

Perfect for a pre-theatre meal - but get there early as it gets packed. Not the widest selection of tapas, or even the best, but good value, wholesome food and very friendly service. Particularly liked beans & chorizo starter and king prawn main course.

Warm and friendly welcome and very good service, but the food is lacklustre and it seems that nothing is freshly prepared, most if not all hot dishes (some of which were not very hot) are microwaved and so arrived at the table within a few minutes of ordering. Albondigas meatballs were bland and under-seasoned, croquetas de jamon were distinctly lacking in jamon. Wine list is short and uninspiring, consisting of readily-available supermarket wines at inflated prices. Will not return.

This wasn't our first time at Andalucia, in fact we booked it again because we enjoyed it so much last time. Sadly, this time the food wasn't as good. It might just have been our choices, but all the dishes lacked much flavour, even the chorizo, which usually has a bit of a kick. Some of the onion in the tortilla was undercooked and the ham croquettes looked and tasted burnt. It's shame because this was a nice place to go before seeing a show in the Harold Pinter theatre, but we probably won't book it again.

I live between Spain and London so was not most impressed with the quality of the food. Not the most authentic , service was ok therefore made it bearable.
It was a quick pre theatre bite to eat.

Food was nice and well priced. We went for the set menu 3 courses for £14.95 and there was a good choice of main courses. Shame there happened to be a birthday party group which made the room extremely noisy. But once they left it was a nice and relaxed environment. Waitress was lovely and attentive.

Perfect location for a theatre supper at the Pinter Theatre - just two doors along!

It's not grand, but it's very convenient, just off the Haymarket, and the value is amazing for central London. Most tables - and the toilets - are in the basement, so check with them if you need disability access.

The three course theatre menu is simple but well cooked - though my husband described the Gazpacho as 'a bit watery'. He said his chicken was good, whilst I enjoyed my green salad and Prawns with rice and tomato sauce, followed by by Lemon cheesecake. At just over £60, including a bottle of house white, what's not to like?

Needed to find a last minute place to eat and discovered this little beauty on the app. Very small, but a lovely Spanish atmosphere. Service was fab. Ordered off the set menu at 14.95 PM. 3 courses and amazing value. Accompanied by a bottle of the house white which was again brilliant value. Somewhere we will visit again.

Authentic Spanish Tapas, ideal for a pre-theatre dinner. The house wine (Rioja) was perfectly acceptable
