    Food was great. All the tapas we ordered tasted great. It was a Saturday evening and it was very busy. Service wasn’t great. We had to ask to be serviced a couple of times as they didn’t come to take orders. However, this can be understanding due to high demand and lack of staff.

    This is a lovely Tapas restaurant in Cardiff city centre. We ordered a selection of 6 or 7 tapas for two and all were superb. The staff are very friendly and attentive and the food was beautiful. The atmosphere was great. Even though it is a small restaurant it still felt private when dining - chatter from other diners did not feel intrusive. Nice wine too! We had a lovely time and will be back again before too long. Thanks to the staff for making it a lovely evening.

    Really disappointing. We were looking forward to an authentic Spanish tapas evening but there was no depth to the food and everything looked and tasted microwaved. Some portions were also very small e,g. Mushrooms for starter and no flavour. Staff were super polite and attentive and a nice restaurant- it was the quality of the food that was the let down. We were in and out in 40 mins which also shows the speed at which everything came out.

    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
