Great Tapas lunch menu with authentic home cooked Spanish dishes.
Lovely tradition Sangria
Great value for money.
What a delight! Fantastic quality tapas in a wonderful authentic setting with brilliant service.
This was our first visit to El Bar de Tapas, and I would certainly go back again, the service was first class and the food very good
Lovely tapas with a nice selection.
Service was attentive and friendly.
Only small criticism was that, despite saying we were under no time pressure, the dishes came so quickly one after the other that we were struggling for space on the table and felt we had to eat more quickly to make space or before dishes went cold. Next time we will order 2-3 dishes at a time, as we are ready for them.
Had a lovey lunch at El Bar de Tapas - the food on the tasting menu was great and very good value for money. Seemed very authentic - I’ve eaten tapas in Spain a reasonable amount and this compared very favourably. Interesting decor, good service, no complaints!
Had another fab lunch at El Bar de Tapas. Their lunch money is great value for money.
Always had great service, thankyou Maria and Emer! Food tasty and lots of choice. Cocktails are amazing too
Love the Restaurant- some of our Grandchildren were with us and the staff were very friendly to them. Only criticism we were all a little too cold.
Second visit here and mich appreciated. Lovely table looking over cooking area. Service is outstanding, and the food, tapas style in portions over time, is superb. Much appreciated.
Good fresh food served promptly. All hot and tasty, will be going again.
We were looking forward to a Spanish Tapas evening and I had advised the restaurant in my booking that it was my wife's birthday but they made no mention of it. From the food that we ordered, the honey glazed chicken strips and the honey glazed pork ribs were very tasty. However the pork cheeks were bland and the Patatas Bravas were very plain. Patatas Bravas should be spicy hence the name Bravas! We got the general impression that all the staff just wanted to go home early and even though they advertise that they are open until 11 pm on a weekday, the Tuesday evening when we were there they turned away a walk in couple at 9 pm!
Great food,polite staff ,friendly ideal for something to eat that's not too filling
Great service and beautiful food. Will come back again.
Excellent food at good value for money, with very quick and friendly service. Will definitely be back!

Fabulous and friendly for an impromptu anniversary dinner. Very good Tapas .
Great food and lovely staff as always
Really quick service, happy staff abs beautiful food!
Food was very nice and a change and felt authentic. Not restaurants fault but may have been better if we had ordered a couple of dishes at a time rather than they all arrive together. Will certainly go back, nice food, good atmosphere and decor and good value. Website does not currently show the full extent of the interior so where they have expanded, so bigger that you might think from current pictures.
Great food. Lovely service and enjoyed everything. Will return
Great authentic experience. Service friendly and welcoming. Food was served hot and promptly and was great. All reasonably priced.
