    Majority of the reviews for this place was good so we have it a go, and it was possibly the worst tapas we ever had! Couldn’t even chew my way through the calamari, nearly broke a tooth on the overly deep fried pork belly! However cocktails were lovely!

    Seafood paella was a bit salty and too much rice for three of us. Needed a finger bowl and bowl for shells etc. Needed some garlic to give it a lift and extra prawns or maybe some clams added. Staff were a little slow and unattentive. Had to keep asking for extra drinks etc.

    Quality of the food was less good than previous times… especially not impressed with the ceviche ( just a little jar with cut up octopus and not very tasty). I took three types of pork for main dish and it was very salty. Overall, the experience was ok but not good enough to come back I think .

    Booked for dinner on a Saturday evening, weather was nice so we chose an outside table. Service was great, staff were very attentive, small wait for food but every chair was full and it’s definitely worth the wait, food was delicious and portions were much bigger than expected, 7 dishes was probably far too much for the pair of us but the food was just so good it was hard to stop eating. Would definitely return and recommend.

    The meal was nice but we made a bit of an error and didn’t look at the price of a bottle of Prosecco. It was more than our meal. Only down side. Extortionate mark up 😳

    We had a late afternoon booking, host didn’t ask for our name, sat us down outside where the staff seemed to forget all about us. We ordered food and drinks together. Food arrived before the drinks and not all the food came. No one checked on us mid meal ( food was delicious as per, but would it been nice to know staff knew we were still there) we finished food and wanted more drinks. We had to wave down staff who were just chatting in front of the bar, for drinks AND the bill. The lady who brought our drinks and bill was lovely and when we had finished our food she checked we were okay. We’ve visited a few times and service is usually always excellent; left feeling disappointed from a service point of view- but food was outstanding and delicious.

    I have been a few times before,, in the evening and food and service have been great. I had booked at lunch time on this occasion and the service was really poor. We was told after waiting 40 mins for the starters they would be another 20 mins, when we complained other people were getting served that had turned up after us the starters appereared straight away. One of the starters was missing, the starters was very nice which improved the mood. Then they was trying to serve our main with all the starters not being cleared away so no room to put plates down. 2 of the mains were sent back for being the lamb shank tastes off, and the beef was to chewey to eat. They did take these of the bill but the overall service was very poor and was so disappointed as this was my favorite place up until this point. I really hope it was a 1 off but not keen to go back and try.

    Really great atmosphere, friendly staff and good food. Drinks service could have been slightly more attentive, but not a problem that would deter me from coming back. Quite pricy as Tapas goes, and some dishes were a bit sub par, but overall a really nice evening and we all enjoyed ourselves. The Almond Cake dessert is to die for!

    Sadly disappointed with the food, very average and overcooked, the service was also pretty slow and we waited ages to pay to bill and ended up going to the bar as the staff were too busy chatting or on their phones. Will not be going back

    I booked a table at Rico Sabor in Rochester using OpenTable. It was an easy process to book a table. Once we arrived at the venue we were seated straight away, served drinks and then our order taken. The food was delicious, the atmosphere was great and the service was also very good. We had a great night and would thoroughly recommend Rico Sabor Rochester for a meal/night out. We will definitely be coming back again soon…. Thank you.

    The food was amazing! And it came so quick! Literally 10 minutes after ordering. And there was plenty of it on the tapas for 2 to share. Only thing that let it down ever so slightly was service. The waiters were really nice and polite but after eating our food the plates were left on the table for 30 minutes before a waiter came over. They were stood at the bar all talking. After they took our plates they gave us a dessert menu and took a further 20 minutes to come back, again just talking at the bar. But I would return

    Buzzing atmosphere for a sunny Friday evening. Tapas and cocktails very good. Dessert was sent back as tasted strongly of garlic and was taken off the bill without any problem. Would return with friends for a casual evening out.

    Brilliant lunch for a party of 6. All of the dishes were excellent: we had calamari, cod croquettes, mushroom croquettes, pork belly with chilli sauce, patatas guiso, beef with vegetables, chicken & chorizo skewers, meatballs etc. Rum & raisin ice cream, churros and almond cake were also thoroughly enjoyed! The tapas plates are very generously portioned.
