La mejor manera de despedir el 2018.
Excelente servicio, ambiente maravilloso y una gran cena. Todos los platos excelentes, por destacar uno, el lenguado a la parrilla. La guinda: la bolsa con las 12 uvas de la suerte. Excelente relación calidad previo.
Great experience! I recommend it for a special lunch or dinner.
Stopped by for dinner after a show in the Covent Garden areas and took advantage of the moderately priced lunch/post-theatre. Beautifully designed restaurant, excellent offerings, pleasant service!
Very classy, peaceful and positive environment. Staff are really good
It was our first time dining here but it won’t be the last! We loved the ambience and the food. The service was very friendly and attentive. We were in a rush so we didn’t have time to enjoy it properly so next time we will get more time and try more of the options on the menu. Definitely recommended if you are looking for something different and special - also with friends!
Great restaurant...amazing food
Fantastic food, service, and restaurant is beautiful.. what more could you ask for
Muy mal Servicio y mala comida , sin duda hay mejores restaurantes De Comida española en Londres.
food lovely but grossly overpriced and portions very small.
Great food for not too expensive prices from a restaurant created by a Michelin Star Chef from Spain
Very intense flavours from all the dishes. All the small and large fishes were suitable for sharing. It was perfect for a group of four friends. The highlight was the unusual but delicious beef tartare. Four people, three courses, two bottles of their basic (but elegant) wines plus dessert wine came to £80 per head.
Some staff great, some staff need to learn how to deal with customers
This was an extraordinary experience. The design was such that acoustics made it possible to have a table of 20 10 feet from our table and yet we can converse in our normal voices. Food was out of this world. The scallops were the best we have ever tasted, drinks were special. Service was great- well paced, helpful, and patient. Made our last night in London wonderful.
Excellent value pre-theatre menu. Having been to the 3 Michelin star sister restaurant near Bilbao, I was interested to try this more casual version. The venue is very attractive, with a bar upstairs and restaurant downstairs, and the food and cocktails were very good.
We had a great time here. We booked at short notice for 4 of us who wanted to chat and catch up. The £33 set menu was DELICIOUS- satisfying both vegetarians and carnivores very contentedly. The rice and clams was especially memorable. The cava was lovely and the wine list was good.
We had a great table where we could hear each other and were attentively served by the staff. A perfect place for our get together.
We will return - the a la carte looked worth investigating.....
Very rare for me to give a negative view. The restaurant has quite a nice ambiance and the food was (very) nicely done. However, the downside is that the restaurant is fundamentally overpriced. A bill for four for tapas with two bottles of wine and a round of G&Ts was simply over the top. Service was patchy with some staff seemingly over busy. In the interests of fairness, one might go for just the food and the bill might appear more reasonable.
Lovely restaurant. Service a bit slow and had to chase drinks but friendly and knowledgeable staff generally. Had rib of beef which was fantastic. The quality of the beef was excellent and it was really well cooked. Sides come separately and were good but very small amount.
The food was too bland.
Had the pre-Theatre deal which was excellent particularly liked the tortilla and the ice cream served with desert. A large party upstairs and the echo off the ceiling made the restaurant quite loud even though we were dining early
3 course menu is good value with cava. Although they forgot to bring it ! Limited choice. Good service even when it got much busier.
Interesting and tasty food. All very well presented and well served.
Just seemed rather too small for the money. Needs to be larger portions.
Great food - excellent service - amazing venue.
Tasty, fresh and spot on!
Excellent service and food. We loved it! Thank you
Is anything too much trouble? Not at Eneko!! The staff are so attentive and smile a lot. The food is sensational and the drinks are brilliant.
great meal, thank you. We really enjoyed the food and the service was good too.
Very good food and great service and atmosphere of that of central London. Great !
Good food in an exceptional location. High quality service and a good menu choice - recommended.
Slightly strange menu but all in all a good experience at Eneko. We had the basque lunch box which was tasty and quite filling, although we did also get into a cheese board. Not cheap and it was rather empty (it is a big space) but we liked it. Lovely decor and very efficient friendly staff.
We really enjoyed our dinner Eneko, the food was amazing. Eneko has managed to turn traditional Spanish dishes into very interesting modern ones. Beautiful place too.
Authentic delicious food
Friendly & efficient service, modern vibe, good menu range, easy to pick & mix small plates, large plates, sides. Good wine reasonably priced.Lovely for an evening in London with friends. Nice booth seating for larger groups
The food was absolutely amazing and served quickly. Great wine menu. My only peeves were that the tables in our area were crammed too closely together, so that I had to disturb other diners so I could sit down, and my fellow diner’s plate was cleared away before I’d finished eating, which made me feel rushed. That said, I’d definitely go back.
The food here is superb, with a good selection of wines too. Service is a bit patchy in terms of attention (been twice now) but the staff are all very friendly. I would say the food is a tad on the pricey side but packed with flavour. We’ll return once it has reopened after renovation.
We found it when looking for pre-theatre food. A great value offer for 3 courses (£33 with a glass of Cava- through Open Table) and we were really please to find such a fantastic restaurant. The food was amazing and we could not find a single thing to improve; service was excellent and the decor and atmosphere perfect.
We will definitely be back for a return visit, probably from the full menu. Highly recommended!
The food here as usual was very good stand out dish the tempura suckling pig. It was made more enjoyable by the waitress Liveta who was very attentive and told us about her home in Lithuania .Would recommend this restaurant.
Another excellent meal; beautifully presented and served. Imaginative cuisine.
Relaxed place and delicious food. Lovely service.
Fantastic food! Great for sharing and trying several things.
The restaurant is lovely, I had the betroot and soufflé as a starter, it was very salty and no soufflé unfortunately. My main was game tempura which was lovely, unfortunately my starter hadn’t been cleared when my main arrived and I was left with not cutlery. Dessert was lovely and atmosphere was great.
Great food, good wine, perfect pre theatre. The ambience did suffer slightly from having a hotel feel but the decor was good and the toilets clean. The highlight was the amazing Spanish food - the seafood risotto was my favourite but everything was delicious.
