    I’ve been here three times and the food has always been nice. My only negative feedback was that the toilets where dirty and the stairway down is grubby as well, A lick of paint won’t go amiss and suggest staff check them throughout the day. No excuse for dirty toilets.

    No longer Santiago’s! Authentic food AND staff have completely disappeared. Food was ridiculously bad, cold red wine, salad with Garlic mushrooms! French stick as bread, no garlic/chilli or seasoning in Gambas! And I’ve absolutely no idea what was on the pastas bravas. Never again. What a shame as it was such good food.

    Been here a few times before and loved it. This time food was dry , overcooked, burnt in parts. Shame we enjoyed it before but this time really have left a bad taste in our mouths. Won't be returning

    Obviously changed hands as food use to be amazing - our meal last night was just not good - Calamari looked liked it was from supermarket- Chorizo was bland and flavourless - didn’t think that was even possible shame as it use to be great.

    I had high hopes for this nice, small restaurant. We had a friendly reception and were seated promptly. From here the service was still friendly but very slow. We had to grab attention to order more drinks, again to get the drink forgotten and to clear empties from the small table. When you are ordering tapas on a table for 2, space is limited. This was all while there were only about 3 tables in, it was full by the time we left. Food was nice enough and reasonably priced.

    I'm really disappointed and won't dine here again. The restaurant charged us for a dessert that was not served, and it seemed intentional. The price of the dessert wasn't high, so I don't understand why the restaurant would resort to such means to deceive customers!! Our order included one dessert. While waiting for our dishes, the waiter said it was unavailable, so we canceled that dessert. However, when paying, the waiter wouldn't show me the bill, which I found odd. After leaving, I did the math myself and realized the cost of the dessert hadn't been deducted. Moreover, the taste of the food was mediocre at best, making for a terrible experience overall.
