Brilliant evening, great service & excellent food! Obviously having to sit outside at the moment but Rico Libre have it all covered with huge patio heaters and even provided golf umbrellas when the drizzle descended.. A great ambience with Latino music playing and being around the buzz of Digbeth & the Custard factory. We have already recommended to friends and will definitely return. Thank you Rico Libre!
Amazing experience as always. Food is always exceptional and the new outdoor seating adds a great element. 100% recommend!
It was our first time and it certainly won’t be our last. The food was fabulous, love the service and the atmosphere was lovely- especially when have sun went down and the lights came on. Loved it! X
Great experience - outstanding
Very nice, great food, great place, friendly staff, extra warm heater for the colder evenings
We love coming to Rico libre and the food was lovely as always
Unfortunately we arrived and the restaurant was closed, which is a shame as we were looking forward to this after seeing good reviews
Absolutely fantastic food and brilliant atmosphere. Cannot recommend this little gem enough, our waiter was awesome and the food came very quickly! We were able to have our own wine and bill wasn’t too bad - recommend the croquets!!
Excellent place for meals with friends !! Would highly recommend for a chilled night out
Excellent customer service and food was amazing! Would definitely return
Amazing food and great service! Will definitely go back after lockdown
I’ve been to Rico Libre before and it was great hit this time was a Halloween set menu which felt very overpriced £50 for two people) for what you got (x7 dishes to share and a drink). My partner doesn’t drink and wasn’t offered an alternative to the sangria. Little underwhelmed by this visit this time which is a shame.
Absolutely love Rico Libre! We went on Halloween for their Halloween menu, it was delicious with plenty of food. The tapas sizes are very generous and absolutely delicious.
Excellent service from all the staff too.
Had such a lovely evening - amazing tapas! Great Halloween set menu!
Our booking was for 8pm Saturday Evening, surprisingly the place was full without being rammed and tables were well spaced in line with Covid restrictions. We had 14 tapas between the 4 of us, the portions were a decent size so this was plenty. The service was very good, the food was all piping hot and of great quality - we had a mixture of, meat, fish and vegetables. The bill came to £100 without deserts with was good value. It helped that you take your own drinks. Will definitely return.
Great food, friendly staff, reasonably priced, informal
Excellent food and service as always, would highly recommend
Delicious food and lovely staff.
Love the choice and quality of tapas available.
Staff are polite, happy (a necessity in these times!)
clean restaurant and toilet facilities. Nice decor, casual and quite simple. Warm environment.
I can recommend Rico Libra.
Amazing place - great food especially the griddled beef.
Staff were lovely and friendly.
Thankyou all for making our night out in a year and half so lovely
Really enjoyed our trip to Rico Libre on Saturday, first time since it moved address and much more space now. Enjoyed most of our dishes, king prawns and croquettes were favourite dishes. Service was great all staff were really friendly and had some fun with us too.
Once again an excellent night had at Rico Libre, food great, service great, just what you need in these days, go and enjoy.
Amazing food and Zaf was a great server, very attentive and friendly. 10/10 would come again :)
You won’t be disappointed here - great vibe for all ages
Always excellent food and good service. COVID safety measures in place.
the food was excellent. there was a good choice and each portion of tapas was a good size.
We thought the corkage charge per person was too steep.
Delicious food, friendly staff and attentive but non intrusive service.
Always a pleasure to eat here, first time in the new location and it is great
We were served by Tommy who was probably the best waiter I have ever been served by. His charm was 100% authentic and genuine. He was funny, witty and really made our evening. I don’t think there are many places where you can walk away from and be that impressed with the service.
I cannot praise this place enough!!
I visited Rico around 6 years ago and it was a great place for food, socialising with friends and atmosphere back then.
Now they have moved to the Custard Factory it is even better!!!
Plus it is still a place where you can bring your own booze, so it lowers the bill already so you can enjoy more of their tapas dishes.
We had the king prawns in chilli oil, squid, patas bravas, muscles and the best was left until last the octopus... cooked to perfection and I am so glad I tried it!!
Definitely a great place for food with family, friends and of course date nights and I will definitely be going back!
The waiter and manager were both very attentive and friendly.
A lovely little hidden gem, and I am so glad I went back.
Thank you to the team on amazing food and great place!
Wow this is such a great restaurant
The tapas is full of flavour and one of the guests was vegetarian and there was plenty of choice.
Thank you to Zaff Tommy and Phe for making our evening so excellent
We will be back soon
1t time in new venue nice place, Food, service & value was amazing.
Will be back soon no worries
All staff were attentive and friendly really helpful with food recommendations too
Amazing food! Great new location, really nice inside and more spacious than previous location. We went late on a Saturday evening and there were some very loud rowdy tables, unfortunately the noise echoed around the whole restaurant and meant our meal wasn't as enjoyable as we struggled to hear each other speak. It was a little disappointing they had been able to book as it was a group of 8 but seated at two tables and had clearly had too much to drink but were not asked to keep the noise down. Otherwise we would have given 5 stars. Maybe avoid Saturday evenings if you want a nice peaceful meal.
I have been coming to Rico Libre for years. Every time I come here I am so happy. The food is delicious, the staff are lovely and the service they provide is top notch.
Any issues are resolved straight away keeping the customer happy at all times. I will keep coming back and keep telling others to try this place too.
Good food except for the lamb leg kebab which was expensive and a bit tough. The other food was very good and the distancing and ambiance was spot on.
The food was fantastic, the staff were really outgoing and they made a special effort for my birthday! I had a great night, can't wait to go back!
Amazing food - like no other place I have ever eaten...ever...anywhere. Will come back whenever we are in Birmingham. But very noisy...so we weren't tempted to linger and have another drink or plate of food as we could barely hear each other speak.
Best Tapas ever. Definitely going back for more, what a gem
We came for food on Wednesday. Love the new venue, very stylish! Staff were friendly and the customer service was to a high standard. We enjoyed playing Jenga whilst we waiting for our food to arrive. Menu was really hard to choose from as we wanted everything! The food was delicious. We will be returning! Highly recommend!
