                                                            The food was very average and didn’t live up to expectations. The restaurant felt dirty, and toilets in particular were reminiscent of a dingy club. Service was however great all staff were polite and attentive.

                                                            Don't bother trying to book a table if any of your party are under 18 years old! It doesn't say so anywhere on their website, but they don't allow under 18s in, so we were turned away. It ruined our evening out as we ended up wasting a huge amount of time trying to find somewhere else to eat as most other places were fully booked. If you've got a policy - LET PEOPLE KNOW ABOUT IT!!!!!!

                                                            Food was disappointing. I have been before and it was lovely but this visit it was very below par! Food was soggy, luke warm, not very appealing to look at! Taste was nice but it wasn't as good as I remember it being on previous visits!

                                                            They got our order wrong, and because we were going to the theatre we didn’t have time to get the correct meal. The food was ok, but definitely not great. It’s better for large groups that just want to drink.

I have also requested a cake/personal touch for my friend as it was her birthday, which was not received nor mentioned and that’s a shame.

                                                            Shows are just finished in 25 minutes and it did not start on time. Foods are not good and tasty.

                                                            Happy hour ! Had pre theatre menu ! Nice standard Tapas and atmosphere, Sangria could be a bit punchier. Lovely friendly waiting staff felt really welcomed. Lively but also small booths for a bit more intimacy. Would def go again and next time for the flamenco show.

                                                            Very good food. Wine list a little bit to short. Ambience correct but volume to loud to speak.

                                                            Our reservation was at 5. Restaurant did not open till 5.10 We were restricted for timing due to theatre reservation. By the time we ordered it would have taken ages. Waiters was argumentative and did not understand our concerns . I have previously been but will not be rushing back due to their poor service ...

                                                            This place has good reviews and it was in the location that we wanted, but it is a place for the young and not the middle aged. As you descend into the basement and the music is blaring you realise you have made a mistake, we even had a glitter ball above our table!! There are two for one drinks before 9pm, they were pretty aweful & our waitresses could not converse or hear us in English well enough to even understand when we asked about wine...vino. The food was actually pretty good, but it was not the ambience for us so we left on as soon as we had eaten. Would be a great place for younger folk.

                                                            The pre-theatre menu is great value. Bread, olives and a small sharing platter of ham and cheese to start, then two tapas each which you choose from a short list followed by a small selection of desserts chosen by the restaurant to finish. All this for only £12.90 per head plus drinks.

                                                            Dinner was fairly disappointing. We wanted to order Paella but on Mondays you have to call and pre order. Except I’d been trying to call for 3 days and the call kept going to mailbox which was full! On the day we left feeling not very full after exhausting most of the veggie options. Disappointing service overall. Not sure I would visit again.

                                                            I visited together with my date early evening during Happy Hour. We both enjoyed the Tapas, cocktails were good and bottles of wine were exceptional value considering this place is in central London. The low light and live music really added to the whole ambience. Altogether my date was a rousing success! Many thanks, we’ll definitely visit again.

                                                            Lively venue near Leicester Square. Good value tapas and friendly service. Live flamenco and loud music so not good if you want a catch up but great for fun night out.

                                                            Fun pre-theatre meal. Reasonable food, good price, loved the flamenco. Would be great for a party. The music was loud but we loved it. Service was friendly. We went mid-week before 8pm theatre. Flamenco from 7pm.

                                                            Arrived on Saturday lunchtime, place was empty. We were told that we had to order from a much restricted menu for 15 pounds per head. Menu lacked some of the classic basics you’d expect (ham, cheeses). There was no bar tender, so they weren’t able to make cocktails or sangria. Food was average st best and some of it felt re-heated. For money paid, very disappointed

                                                            The food and service was of a very high standard. I would not hesitate to recommend Salvador and Amanda to friends and family and we shall definitely return here. In fact, we are already talking about returning for my partners birthday. Literally nothing that we would change about our dining experience and we've talked about how lovely it was ever since!

                                                            We went for some tapas and to enjoy their great happy hour deal but after a few minutes inside, we decided we had to leave. It was dark inside and the service was to close to none. I can tell that it gets quite rowdy later in the night - I guess we're too old for the crowd of Salvador and Amanda.
