    Came to Rico Sabor for my mum's birthday and we weren't disappointed. Lovely food, great atmosphere and extremely polite and accommodating staff. We had the toasted bread and tomato to start, then as a main we had chorizo in red wine, garlic and wine mushroom, tortilla, calamari and cod croquettes. All lovely. Belgian waffle went a bit tough and the desert menu was a little limited however otherwise would have been 5s across the board.

    Although this is a lively restaurant that I would recommend, the noise levels make it impossible to have much of conversation. It is very noisy and that put me off a bit as my hearing isn't as good as it was. Didn't stay long.

    Disappointed, the mango Juice was off tasted foul and they brought another one over which I felt should of been on the house after their incompetence as general food hygiene and the safety quality checks clearly hadn’t been Done for a good few days as this juice was awful. It Was very hot in the Resturant and a little bit too dark; we thought that the tapas would of been done to the number of customers at the table there was 5 of us, feedback is maybe it would be worth putting into the menus how many pieces each dish has, as some dishes had five pieces and others only had 2 or 3 items and there was 5 of us eating so it would of been good to know how many dishes to order so we could all try each tapas. Drinks seem very over priced at £3 for a fruit juice I wouldn’t go back here the tapas tasted alright but nothing the blew me away and not worth the amount for each plate.

    First visit to Rico Sabor and definitely not the last. Food was served quickly and it was superb. We both enjoyed it very much and complimented our young waiter on getting the service, just right. We both thought it was a beautiful interior and lovely ambience. We will sit further into the building next time so that we can see more.

    The food has gone down significantly since it opened. It felt like nothing more than a low level deli style tapas. Everything came with garlic mayo (aioli) there was no seasoning, mushroom croquettes slimy, cod fritters were balls of dough, pork which used to be the best thing is now chunks of flavourless fat with dry pork (not crispy) and a mere dollop of the sauce…it was bad it was perfect to begin with but it was really bad food. It is a shame. That was my fourth time there and I am always hopeful it will be brilliant but I think this time was so bad I will stay away from now on.

    Food was amazing and very good portions for the price. Only very slight criticism would be more service presence, was a struggle to get someone’s attention to order more drinks

    I visited Rico Sabor for my birthday and it was a pleasant experience. It was a bit of a challenge to get speedy service but, to be fair, it was very busy there when my partner and I visited and it felt like the vibe of the place was very European anyway (with people encouraged to take their time and not rush their meals). In my opinion, the food was fairly average; the Lomo de Ternera Saltado was probably the best thing we tried, that was really tasty. I also had some Prosecco Sangria and that was amazing. All in all, I'm not sure I'd be in a rush to return, with so many other restaurants in Rochester to try, but I feel like I'm probably in a minority, given how popular the restaurant clearly is.

    Booked in advance, was seated straight away. Drinks order was taken but only half the order arrived. Had to remind staff after 20 minute that the 3 cokes we ordered still had not arrived. They came after 10 mins after reminder. The waiter who took our food order was efficient ans friendly. Food arrived really quickly but came in dribs and drabs, so half the order was getting cold by the time rest came but nevertheless tasted delicious. Calamari was slightly over cooked but still edible. All in all though it was a lovely afternoon meal.

    Definitely deteriorated from our last visit about a year ago. What passed for Spanish Omelette (a traditional dish) was a rather soggy mush incorporating a watery blend of red peppers. To their credit they took this item off the bill when I complained. Nowhere, aside from the chorizo and chicken skewers, was there any hint of pimenton. And garlic was used sparingly. Disappointing

    The restaurant is bang in the High Street do very central. The food was OK, just lacking in that something special. I've tasted better elsewhere. The service was impersonal. However, our Server was efficient. This place looks busy with the staff trying to do their best. There was a woman telling the young boys what to do as they seemed uncertain. The dishes were a bit too expensive but I expect that's because it's Rochester.

    I would try evening next time for a livelier atmosphere and maybe more staff. Had to go and find staff to ask for more drinks and waited a long time for initial service. That said the staff were cheerful and pleasant. Food was decent and they didn’t skimp on portions. Definitely will give it another go.
