We were so rushed through our meal sadly. It seemed as though the restaurant was well overbooked beyond what they could handle. We had barely finished our meal before we were asked how long we would be as they had another booking coming in. We had also noticed that another table of friends were actually asked to leave half way through their meal. Therefore clearly leaving their customers completely dissatisfied along with a mountain of food waste which is something I detest greatly. After our food had been taken away were were rushed outside to finish our bottle of wine... all in 15 minutes before they wanted their outdoor table back. Very disappointed with this service. Our food was lovely, however lovely it may have been our experience was not a good one due to how poorly we and the rest of the customers were treated on Wednesday evening.
The restaurant was very untidy with what looked like gas cylinders sitting in the middle of the room.
Great place, very good quality food, fast and efficient service. Will definitely be back
Food was amazing, staff were amazing and I had a really good time. Can’t wait to come again. Staff were even happy when I sang Sweet child o mine
Fantastic food, excellent service, would totally recommend
amazing food. lovely service. small, quiet and cosy. would 100% recommend!
Lovely food, great service, wine was great too - highly recommend and will visit again soon
Good service overall, pity about the broken toilet
Very nice ambient restaurant with great range of tapas .
Excellent food and service all round. Would definitely recommend.
Both myself and my daughter had the most amazing evening. Even though it was extremely busy the food, service and atmosphere were excellent. A truly authentic Spanish evening, perfect. Highly recommended, we can’t wait to return, I just wish we lived closer.
Lovely food! Paella was lush! Nice wine selection
Great food, service was great. Just had a really relaxed time with lots of small plates and wine. Perfect for date night.
Very disappointed with the food , after reading the reviews was expecting better.
Excellent food, great wine and a very nice ambiance. The Paella was exceptional. Would really recommend it.
Would reccomend, great food and service. Booked outside seating but was raining so was offered a table indoors!
Table was 30 minutes late. Took 15 mins to be served drinks and had to ask to order food. Nothing was offered to us due to the inconvenience of the delayed table.
Music was too quiet so no real atmosphere.
Staff seemed stressed, didn’t talk or explain what dishes they brought over when they brought it.
please remember we are in covid times...
3 of the 7 dishes we ordered were not available
too slow & they turned away a lot of people - they really needed another couple of members of staff
what we ate was fantastic.
Our first visit here, not sure what to expect.. only one toilet that was shared , and wasn’t clean.. no door handle on door. Had plenty of tapas in past but this wasn’t great. Overcooked prawns over cooked octopus. All dishes seemed to be swimming in grease. Don’t think we’d go back which is a shame
Lovely food and great prices. A few things out of stock. Waitress was awful. Didn't say a word to us or tell us what food she was delivering. Just left it on the table and walked away.
Excellent food and wine. Thank you so much for a lovely lunch
I’m a Spaniard myself and I found the food here pretty good. A bit overpriced in my view, but a good choice to have some delicious tapas. Good variety and nice atmosphere. Service was also very good. In a nice central area as well. Would definitely recommend.
Great experience as always! We dine here on a regular basis and always love it!
Enjoyable lunch would be happy to recommend to friends
Food very bland, feel like I could have made tastier food at home. The prawns pil pil in so much oil it turned both our stomachs. Service- nothing to write home about.
Really lovely place, food was amazing. Will be back :)
Fantastic food and service.
Couldn't ask for more as all was spot on
Great service . Good food and a wonderful way to spend a sunny afternoon. thank you.
Excellent food, atmosphere and service overall. Great.
Lovely tapas meal with my son. Food was delicious.
Great Tapas & good value for money. Location was very central.
The food was some of the worst I’ve ever eaten. Definitely the worst food I’ve had out in recent memory. Everything was over cooked, lacked any sort of flavour and tasted like it had been microwaved to death. Paella tasted like it was mostly uncle Ben’s rice. Potatoes were edible. Left most of what we ordered but enjoyed the wine. Toilets were filthy.
Brilliant tapas restaurant in the heart of Cardiff. Food is excellent and the staff are friendly & efficient. We will definitely be returning and highly recommend!
Food was out of this world amd the service was fantastic will definitely be visiting again soon 🙂
Good food, lovely staff, and nice atmosphere. Will be back again soon
It was a nice time out. The food was good overall but there is still place for improvement. Service was very good!
Excellent service and once again the food was outstanding. We were obviously sat outside but the staff couldn’t do enough to make us feel welcome and comfortable. Always impressed with Santiago’s but yesterday more than ever!!
Very good meal with great service. Highly recommend the Sangria and the Croquetas
Ambience was out of staff control as very limited number of outside tables allowed. We would have stayed longer if they hadn't needed to limit reservation times. In spite of covid restrictions, food and service excellent. Would definitely return.
We had a great time here, highly recommend! The food was lovely and the staff were friendly, can’t wait to go back.
