    Everything was great apart from the music. It didn’t go with the atmosphere. Funky house music doesn’t go with Spanish tapas

    The cava sangria just tasted like sangria, without the delicious fruit element, having one passion fruit lobbed in it didn’t turn it into sangria , the Spanish omelette was incredibly salty, and the tomato salad was outrageously expensive.

    A lovely lunch with my daughter. Great ambience, good service and the food was very tasty. We ordered 6 dishes between two of us, all the dishes arrived at the table at the same time, which I found unusual for tapas. Each dish had a distinct taste and it was all delicious.

    We loved the food and the service was good too. However, I object to having a 12.5% service charge automatically added to the whole bill. This was in minute writing at the foot of the menu, so not obvious. I asked for it to be removed. Whilst I was happy to tip, I believe it should be at my discretion and I certainly wouldn't tip more that 10%. The days of underpaid waiting staff are gone with minimum wage..

    Just brilliant, from start to finish. La Vina feels like one of those secret little spots you want to constantly go back to when you’re there. The food is fantastic, and there’s always something new to try when you go back. The sangria is dangerously good. Darcy is so great, and can’t do enough to make sure your visit goes well.

    Didn’t stay, was absolutely freezing in restaurant. Had this issue in the past. Not prepared to sit down for a meal with my coat on. Only 1 other diner in and no wonder! Heating been an issue here for years & then stiflingly hot in the summer as no air conditioning. Shame as food is excellent but need to get their act together!!!

    This place needs some work. Visited and took 40 mins to get a drink. Then when we ordered food we waited again & then when it did come it wasn't even warm. We spoke with the manager & a complete new order was being cooked again. We then got a garlic bread we never ordered, when we asked they had no idea. It was then we asked for the bill for the drinks we had, enough was enough. The manager & a supervisor just seemed to be falling out constantly. The only person to apologise or even care was a lovely young lady with blonde hair.

    Unfortunately this place seems to have gone downhill, cold food and lacking flavour. Maybe there have been new owners since my last visit but I wasn’t very impressed. Food arrived surprisingly quick and leads me to believe some of it was possibly microwaved, I’m not sure

    Wasn’t served as tapas. All plates brought out at once making it feel a bit rushed. Didn’t bring out one plate. We checked and didn’t get charged so just a miss. Food wasn’t bad, just didn’t wow, excepting the sea bream, which was excellent. Things like bringing out napkins or a finger bowl for prawns is easy to do and just no thinking on their part. Not offensive but we won’t be rushing back.

    The food was underwhelming, it looked pretty but was clearly pre prepared and not made fresh there and then. Padrons had a sweet glaze - I don’t know why, if it isn’t broken don’t fix it. I wanted better quality food and will go back to Lunya or El Gato next time I’m in town. Table service was hit and miss, we had to go to the reception to ask for drinks.

    The chorizo riojana was suppose to come with roasted red onion, the onions were raw and thrown on top. The mushrooms bar angel were suppose to be stuffed: Confit garlic stuffed mushrooms, parsley and pimiento dressing on toasted bread it was just 2 small flat mushrooms in garlic olive oil on a cocktail stick with a small piece of rock hard bread for decoration. I have been here before and it was really nice, so I was very disappointed this time. Not a lot of food for what you pay for either.

    I am sorry to say that this was a very disappointing evening, we were left sitting without being saved even drinks for 50 minutes, when the food arrived some 40 minutes later only half the dishes were served and we had to wait a good while longer for the remainder. The food was OK but not really memorable and seemed very expensive for small portions.

    I base my review in 4 aspects: Food: It felt bland and reheated but other wise it was ok Price: The price match freshly made items which I don't feel it was the case with this Environment: It was quiet and you could still have a conversation. Customer service: I wouldn't blame the waitresses directly but It looked like there was not good organization and the waitress were OK but we had to get their attention to order, to ask for water, to ask for the bill. I am referring to the ones that responded because others just ignored us as they were busy attending other people.

    Food was okay. It was below average for the price. Portion sizes are poor for tapas, one of the dishes we ordered we had to send back because it was not what was described from the menu. We also ordered a bottle of wine, it came in a jug… when you’re paying £30+ for a bottle of wine I would expect it to come in a bottle.

    I have been to this restaurant a couple of times now and the food was always good but last night the food was bland and dry, may have been a new chef but the standard has dropped which lead to us complaining but the waitress said they had several other complaints too.

    We really enjoyed the food and sangria, however we were sat upstairs in a corner with staff walking past us from the kitchen often when downstairs was empty ! We asked to move downstairs as it was a more couples vibe but was told everywhere was full , even though I had also booked.

    We really enjoyed our experience. We weren’t happy with the table we were originally seated at, which I think was quite clear from our faces, without any hesitation the waiter offered to move us to a different table of which we were extremely grateful for !! The food was lovely, on dish I was really looking forward to wasn’t available but this happens, I’ll just have it next time we go, and one dish was a bit cold. Other than that, food was really good! Service was good & all staff were polite and welcoming!

    Despite reading mixed reviews we decided to give this place a try. Sadly, we won’t return. We were looking forward to some nice Spanish flavours. The place has a nice authentic feel when you walk in but the music was awful and spoilt the atmosphere. Service was ok but nothing special to note. The food was room temperature and flavourless. We ordered the lamb dish which referenced a Rioja reduction - it was basically lamb stew with chick peas, so disappointing. The seasonal greens were boiled to death. Everything lacked seasoning and flavour. The only dish we enjoyed (despite it being lukewarm) was the chorizo. Also ordered cod croquettes but they were out so we swapped to ham which were just like mashed potato in breadcrumbs. Calamari smelled very fishy and was chewy, batter was pale and unappetising, squid ink aioli was congealed on the serving plate so had obviously been sat there a while. Overall, we couldn’t wait to leave and get something else to eat! Such a shame as we had high hopes.
