Delicious food with a great range of Tapas options. You are packed in so if you go on a popular night be prepared to be snuggling up to the table next to you. Staff very passionate about the food & drink. Would highly recommend to get a burst of flavours that have you believing you are in Barcelona.
We thought the food was over priced. The spinach croquettes were very doughy and I could not finish.
Thought it was quite standard to be honest. Service was good, but food not great.
Super loud music back corner table
Otherwise each dish was super tasty
The portion especially of the sausage roll (just 1!) felt a bit mean!
Generally good food. Bread was overpriced (£2.50 for one slice of bread cut in half with garlic oil / £5 with tomatoes!) Short rib was very tender. Spinach croquettas went down well. Nice flavours. Service was ok. Good tapas option if you are in soho and want to avoid the queues of Barrafina.
Lovely food, this small little restaurant doesn't have a large selection of food but the dishes are beautifully prepared and very tasty. The portions are small but match the price.
Would definitely recommend
Really lovely birthday evening, we were very well looked after and both agreed that the pork belly was the best either of us had ever had!
Went to Rambla for my wife’s 40th lunch and was very disappointed- It started with warm white wine...then lots of missing menu items and followed up with order items not arriving, and being told they were also also not available. The food that was delivered was good - but overall experience was very poor so would not recommend...
I'd read great reviews from trusted sources, but sadly this did not live up to expectations. I expected more innovation and creativity with the menu, but it lacked any stand out features. However the main problem was execution;
my Albarino white wine was served warmer than room temperature, when it definitely benefits from being nicely chilled. The offer of ice was nice, but felt like a poor solution to the problem
The soft shelled crab croquettas were luke warm and felt like they'd be sitting around on the counter too long before being served
the pork belly was tender but stodgy, although in fairness it was nicely presented.
The non spanish staff didn't seem to know the menu well and lacked that 'special touch' that you expect from places that have previously had great reviews.
not a disaster, but certainly not good enough to return to or to recommend a friend to.
My new favourite tapas restaurant in London - the food was really excellent. Surprisingly few other diners, I suspect that will change as the word gets out! Will be back soon.
A few pointers im afraid.
The restaurant had a strange smell. I’ve eaten here before and the food was amazing. This time the octopus was rubbery and portion sizes seemed particularly small. Alarmingly when asked about allergies, dishes were handed to us saying ‘this contains dairy’ only to come back 10mins later to say actually it didn’t. Thank goodness it was this way round. The servers wandered almost aimlessly around not really sure what was going on. After receiving the bill it took a long while for them to return with the card machine despite having told them we were off to the theatre that evening and wanted to leave promptly.
It’s such a shame as I’ve loved the restaurant in the past and brought guests. I shall have to think twice about doing so in future.
Thus wasn’t an authentic Catalan dining experience and the food was average at best given the large number of high quality tapas restaurants in the area. Prices were high for the portion sizes, which were miserable. I did provide feedback when I left and was offered a complementary beer and tapas if I returned.
Delicate crab croquettes, divine octopus and yummy mushroom cannelloni... all lovely. Unfortunately some of my first choices had run out, but that just gives me a good excuse to go back again soon!
Terribly disappointing. Went for a Sunday lunch and walked out after entrees. Service was non-existent. Menu was not the same as what appeared online and lots of items unavailable. We ordered cocktails and starters and both fell well short of what was expected, especially for the price. Don't know how you can mess up a bowl of olives but that managed it. Its a beautiful space and such a shame that the food and ambience just doesn't live up to Soho standards.
Tapas in Soho can be a bit hit and miss. It's easy to find average standard dishes that are just OK. If your looking for something authentic and delicious head to Rambla. We went early evening on a Saturday and the place was busy and buzzing. Location is great, directly opposite Groucho Club in the heart of Soho. The food is great. A relatively small selection but every dish we had was executed well. Definitely recommended.
The food was reasonable. Service was a little slow, I had to remind them that I had ordered a glass of wine several times before it arrived.
Manages to deliver some novel and high quality (and novel) tapas at reasonable prices - good value for the West End. And at the start of evening, it was a pleasantly relaxed environment.
Loved the food here, very different to the usual tapas on offer, a real experience & a great location. Not a massive menu but that's not a bad thing. Definitely want to go back there and try out other things asap.
It’s my second time back in a month, food is amazing and the team are very attentive. Favourite restaurant this year
A winning combination of traditional Spanish food with a modern twist. The menu has so many enticing options it leaves you wanting to go back and try what you haven't been able to on first visit. Loved it
This Spanish restaurant has become my favourite Spanish restaurant in London. The quality and taste of food have beyond expectation. Highly recommended to dine in here.
Excellent food and hospitality from Emese and all the team!
Food is heavy, service is patchy and tapas on offer is not exceptional. The chorizo flambe was the standout dish as was the desert.
We went on a Wednesday evening...it was not too busy but I felt the staff were in a hurry which is very non-Spanish. They were perfectly friendly I would just have liked a slightly more relaxed attitude to our dining. Food was terrific
Loved the food at this place. Staff were great but sadly short staffed. Shame we only had a 2 hour slot as we had to leave before we were ready to. Would visit again as food was great.
Love the food here and the wine, have been twice now.
Although the food was passible, it was all just ok. Nothing was seasoned well enough, portions were very small (for the price), and a lot of the food was to be honest a bit tasteless.
Staff looked stretched and a little stressed. Cocktails were poorly made and wouldn't recommend.
Shame as had heard a lot of good things about this place. Not a dreadful experience, but really couldn't give it a higher rating
Food was excellent but overpriced even by the area's standards.
Our waitress was friendly and helpful but the bald waiter or manager was very rude and made us feel like we were annoying him.
The service was very poor. It took them ages to bring food and the gentleman who was serving us was dropping cutleries every time he would walk to our table.. he never apologized and we didn’t feel like the service matches the message about this restaurant.
On top of that, menu is very small and there is not much to choose from, quality of food is not great either..
Really strange smell in the restaurant, terrible service and average food.
Rambla is wonderful but this time there was very little left available off the menu by 9pm. And for a Thursday night in Soho I found this an unpleasant surprise.
Love the food and will be back again for sure but earlier and with a smaller booking!
Too expensive for quantity
very friendly but unprofessional service
we were offered an offer at -50% the bottle of wine, in the end the offer was not applied, we had to return to the restaurant to get a refund
Delicious food. Unbelievably surly & rude manager but the friendly, helpful staff made up for his rudeness.
Not much space at the tables. Menus have writing so small they’re barely legible (apparently being changed).
Food makes up for other shortcomings
The food was delicious. Our favourite dishes were the sea bass ceviche and the chocolate and olive oil tart. One of the best meals I’ve had in London. Lovely ambience and very friendly service.
Great food at incredible value - especially fro this part of London. Odd ventilation system means that heating is overenthusiastic and the kitchen smells are quite overwhelming when you enter. Should be easy to fix, at which point you'd have a genuinely amazing restaurant.
Disastrous dinner. Food was poor quality and appeared to be hastily put together as if the restaurant was closing down. Staff knew nothing about the menu. They were polite, but clearly coping with serious problems within the restaurant.
Spinach croquets where the star of the show 3.5/5
Crab croquets 2.5/5
Pan con tomate 2/5
Pork sliders 2.5/5
Padron pepper N/A
Great morcilla sliders and the torrijas were magnificent.
Mmm, the new truffled wild mushroom canelones, in a delicious cheesy sauce, are outstanding. Add in some nicely blistered Padron peppers sprinkled with sea salt, olives stuffed with cheese, melting pork belly squares and a crisply seductive sobrasada sausage roll, and I guess that was goodbye to the diet! Worth every flavoursome mouthful!
Once again I must write to sing (well, write) of my Rambla devotion. The food, atmosphere, service--and wine!! all outstanding. There's always some new dish on offer to delight as well as what have become old favourites. Even with so many food choices in central London, Rambla comes high in my personal Pantheon.
Had a really bad experience with RAMBLA for a special birthday dinner. Very distracted waiters whom we had to continuously flag down and then after we finished our food, we were left waiting for over 40 minutes for the beef fillet which they forgot to bring. Just a really disappointing experience all around. Better off going across the street and queuing for Burrafina
