Yes definitely due to the wonderful twice cooked lamb and potato salad and the 50% discount in January whereby I could afford something I would normally struggle to.

Food was really good, but with a 10 minute gap between each dish (which was only about 2 mouthfuls each time) it was hard to feel satisfied. Wouldn't go again purely for this reason.

Hi LB11, Thanks for the 4 star review! Glad to hear you had a nice dinner with us, and we are sorry to hear you think that the food is a little expensive! Our prices are a reflection of the premium products we use, many imported directly from Spain combined with the skill and technique that goes into creating the menu, and every dish that arrives to the guests table. We hope that you'll visit us again throughout January, or for a special occasion at another point! Kind Regards,

Lovely restaurant, amazing food and lovely staff. The only reason I haven't given 5 stars is due to the mandatory tip! Whilst I would have given a tip on this visit I am a little un happy about being forced into a mandatory value.

Hi KatherineS, Thanks for the 4 star review! Sorry to hear we lost a star for our service charge. We do automatically add service charge to our diners bills, however this is absolutely discretionary and the choice of the guest if they'd like to pay it. Our aim is that guests are so pleased with the service that paying it is a pleasure, but understand that sometimes this isn't the case, and are happy to remove it without any fuss. We hope to see you again soon! :)

The food was excellent with some things we had not tried before and some more unusual ingredients. The service was great until we had had most of our initial order, then all of the staff bar one seemed to vanish for 30 to 40 minutes leaving us with a long wait for dessert.

Overpriced, even with a 50% discount promotion. The food was tepid when reaching the table and of poor quality compared to my experience of Spanish Tapas in the UK. Cutlery had food stuck to it. Won't be going back.

My wife and i had lunch on new years eve 2 of our dishes the twice cooked lamb and the pitu chicken were well below the standard expected i would suggest the top chiefs were not in they were chiefs learning at lunch time the twice cooked lamb was hard on the top so it was over cooked the pitu chicken was bone dry and not edible that is why i have said the top chiefs were not in they would not send that food out, then we get the bill we ordered wine which was £19 (red) on the bill £38 i was told that is what i ordered after some heated words the waiter apologised this is a top city restaurant i have sent an email to the restaurant asking for an explanation into the poor standard of food and service you are paying top money for food and service and you expect that they also put a service charge on the bill so no concern for the customer (i didn't pay) what i can't understand is why do that we have eaten there on a number of occasions and always in the evening and the food was good the service good i have never complained before had no need to they are willing to take your money for such poor standards they really need to look into why it was so bad to say we were disappointed spoilt our day i will be interested to see if i get any feedback off them. (well nearly a week now this part is my edited version and no response have sent 5 messages on there website all i want is a answer to my question why was the food and service well below there standard you just can't take peoples money and give them poor food and service which is not normal for the restaurant so why no REPLY

Some of the dishes are ridiculously good whereas some of them are a little bland (patatas bravas). The restaurant was very busy and if you are a table of 2 the likelihood is you will be less than 1 feet from the next table which on this occasion meant a very loud and rowdy table! We had to prompt for menus to be provided which wasn’t great but the waitress did provide her personal recommendations which was nice.

Not very impressed with the new menu.

Our server was very friendly, and very good on the menu and with recommendations, but overall service was somewhat slow and inattentive. 10 minutes from being seated to having a menu or ordering a drink, a lengthy wait to have the table cleared, a lengthy wait for the bill...

Food was of a good standard, the restaurant is ‘solid’ in what it delivers. But when you pay your bill you won’t do it casually, you’ll do it with just a twinge of sourness at the price you’re being charged for an unexceptional experience.

I went with a friend for a treat, most of the tapas was really nice and at the start we were quite happy. I didn't expect it to be authentic but basically we wanted some nice Spanish food as a treat.

We had the paella to share and realised it was pretty tasteless and bland. We eventually said to each other is it me or is this pretty bad? It was £28 between us so we were pretty disappointed. We decided to tell them when they asked if everything was ok and then the manager came over. He said there was nothing he could do because the ingredients cost money and said to us we should add salt. His attitude was basically - it's an edible paella so what's the problem.

I think if you want some nice Spanish food I would try somewhere smaller and not a big chain like this. They aren't really concerned if your money is well spent and I really regretted spending my money on it

No paella which apparently is usual at the time of our table reservation, 18.45! Told we could wait an hour and half if we wanted to. Tapas dishes came out when ready which meant members of party waited twenty minutes for theirs after another member had already finished. I basically ate alone with everyone watching till theirs came by which point I’d finished so watched them eat.

Responded on 11 November 2019

Thanks for the 4* review! Unfortunately we have limited fire space to cook paella, this can mean advising a wait time to guests when demand is high. Next time, why not call ahead & pre-order to ensure it's ready for you to avoid disappointment! :) We advise our tapas is shared rather than per person & I am sorry to hear the dishes you chose arrived later than others. Your feedback is invaluable & we'll focus on ensuring our menu's are clearly explained. Thankyou, Kind Regards, Holly Richardson

The food was good. The wine was really expensive for its quality... it’s not very good even if you pay £40...
I would recommend the place with the exception of the wine.

Hi Beatriz, Thanks for your review! Pleased to hear you enjoyed our food! It is disappointing you didn't enjoy your wine choice. The GR-174 is one of best sellers among our regular guests and is a well commended wine for its price from Priorat. However, we appreciate individual preferences & if guests aren't happy with a wine, we will change it with pleasure. Perhaps on your next visit ask to sample a couple first, we want you to have the right choice for you! Kind Regards, Holly Richardson
