We had a drink at the bar downstairs before dinner. Had we’d known there was a Skybar upstairs we would have gone there instead. Be useful if staff mentions this to customers.
We had a deal so it was too bad price wise. Dinner was nice, Iberico pork was tender with a very rich sauce. There wasn’t anything interesting in the dessert menu so we skipped that. The restaurant did have a strong fishy smell.

It was my first time at the Three O Two and I was very impressed especially by the extremely nice staff! The food was delicious and I will definitely go there again.
Sadly there weren’t any table at the window which would have made this experience even more delightful.

Enjoyed a lovely meal for our wedding anniversary. Starters of sardine & mackeral, scallops and Spainish sausage. Main courses of suckling pig, excellent, & lamb with a salad. Very friendly staff and it was great not to be rushed.

Overall, ther service was really good and very professional as you'd expect. Waiter was very polite and and made sure we were seated quickly. It wasn't too pricy and the food served was of very good quality.
Would definitely recommend.

Just don't go to this restaurant unless you have the patience of a saint. We waited to be seated and then waited half an hour before asking the waiter to forget the cava and G and T we had ordered and just bring the wine. No explanation or apology was given by any of the 4 different people we had asked to chase our drinks. Basically the team here need training and organisation. We live very close to this place and will cheerfully walk past it to any restaurant.

The downstairs bar is a lovely peaceful place to meet friends for a drink. The gin menu is amazing and the service friendly and helpful. The restaurant is bright and quiet enough to talk to ones fellow diners but still has a good buzz. The food is good quality though I might have wanted a wider choice on the main dishes from the a la carte. Overall a good evening and excellent value.

I went to Three O Two for my birthday dinner on Saturday, but was disappointed. I asked for Prosecco (granted, not on the menu but thought I'd try anyway) & the waitress asked what that was. It took two attempts to get the food menu, & when we ordered starters it took an hour for them to arrive (the table next to us, who arrived later, was served within half an hour). My friend ordered a medium steak, but it was so tough she could barely cut it, & her vegetables were cold so she sent it back & went without a main course. We asked for the bill, which took about 20 minutes too arrive, I think mainly because staff are too busy looking at the drinks shelf & ignoring guests. Overall, I wouldn't recommend Three O Two to any friends or family.

We were half an hour late for our booking unfortunately, but the manager was extremely accommodating.
The serving staff repeatedly apologised for taking so long with our order; apparently there was a problem in the kitchen. However, although we had to wait a long time for our food it was well worth the wait.
We were a little disappointed that several of our first choices were 'off the menu' and do wish we had been told which items were unavailable when we were handed the menu rather than when we were ready to order.
One of the waiters was rather like Manuelle in 'that well known hotel series', which most of us found rather endearing.
I would definitely eat here again.

Clean modern lines in the surroundings. Service was charming. However a significant number of items on the menu were not available, which was a great pity. What we did eat was delicious.

no mussels, no cod, no patatas bravas, no chocolate desserts. asked for water 4 times before receiving. waiting staff and manager friendly... but seems chef either wasnt there or couldnt be bothered. paellas far too salty and inedible. so we didnt eat. and obviously refused to pay. luckily we have a sense of humour or the evening would have been spoilt
do not bother with this place.. go elsewhere... anywhere else... grab a cheese sandwich from tescos up the road.

The staff were very friendly and helpful and also attentive without being 'in your face'. The food was very good and served promptly, but without being hurried, which we had been afraid of, as we booked a late table (10pm).

Being Spanish and regularly disappointed about "real" Spanish food in London, I don't go too often to Spanish Restaurants. This time I decided to go to Three O Two thanks following a recommendation.

We went for tapas instead of main course and starters. Tapas were not the “real” stuff but a really good more sophistication, posh and modern version of them. Octopus was one of the highlights, followed closely by the chorizo croquettes and the cheese board with queens.

It is prices accordingly to the quality of the food and if you don’t go for the bottle of cava for 16£, you are a fool.

The only down point of the restaurant is that it is in a hotel and it looks like that, a hotel restaurant.

I will come back.

This is the second time I have been to this restaurant - this time not on a deal. The starter of cheese seems to have resuced in size dramatically but still tasty! The staff are still very courteous although they did serve us the wrong main meal and the cava is a bargin at £16/bottle! I would definately go there again.. the food is well cooked and the atmosphere is relaxed.

Having got there late, since the girlfriend and I work longer hours on valentines day, they accommodated a late booking at little notice and were very friendly with the matter. The food was delivered quickly and without at hinder emcee to quality or appearance considering it was 10pm onwards!

A great place and would come back in the future.

This was a new experience, with superior tapas for two, making a variety of dishes, each of which was so good that we were always eagerly awaiting the next, and we were not disappointed in any of them. As we were starting at 6 and due at the theatre at 7.30, it was a shame to have to rush off at the end, it would have been ideal to have been a little more leisurely, but I now know how good a Spanish meal can be. I am recommending it to all my friends.

Went for a post matinee (at the National Theatre) meal in a group of 6 with a tastecard discount. Food was good, with a particularly nice and unusual desert with rose ice cream. A lovely selection of reasonably priced drinks as well. The tastecard discount made a great value meal, that was served at a nice relaxed pace on a large round table allowing us all to enjoy the evening.

Useful option for dining if going to nearby theatre. Very good food at reasonable prices. Staff attentive but not overly so.
Location nothing spectacular, the neighbourhood is still being done over.

Three O Two was disappointing as given its close proximity to the Old Vic it did not cater adequately for those going to the theatre. I mistakingly thought that even though there was only availability from 6pm, if we turned up early we might be able to slip in and find a table available (I've done this on many occasions at other venues). Sadly we were turned away as they didn't open till 6pm. Then it was all a bit of a rush and we just about had time for 2 courses before we had to run to the theatre. The food wasn't brilliant either: my friend's cod fritters were all batter and very little cod and my portion of mussels was very small; a good job they gave us plenty of bread. Main course was small and they didn't suggest we order side dishes

Atmosphere was very relaxed. Food was amazing and delicious. Presentation 200 percent, Staff very polite and courteous, service with a smile with a discreet timing of when to approach and enquire if everything was all right and to bring the next course.

Their prawns on toast, snails baked in Olive oil with garlic was out of this world ooh and that wonderful, aromatic Cauliflower soup was out of this world. The Icing on the cake was the Souffle. Awwwwww absolutely divine. Will definitely go back and try different dishes. Price is very affordable and their cocktails are excellent too.

Away from the hustle and bustle of Waterloo, Three O Two in the H10 is fairly unassuming from the outside. However there's nothing unassuming about the service or food - both exceptional. WWe didn't get to take advantage of any deal and the food was a little pricey for a mid-week dinner, although the drinks were very reasonable and delicious. We chose the tapas option and weren't disappointed with any of the 5 dishes we shared.
There was some confusion over our booking through toptable, they didn't seem to have any record, despite me receiving an email confirmation, although they were more than happy to fit us in. I'd definitely go back.

Dined on a 50% off food deal on a Saturday night before taking in a film at the BFI.

Restuarant had been partitioned into two. The used half we dined in was nearly empty at 6.30pm and nearly full by 8pm.

Food was well prepared, presented and served with the exception of the deep fried pimientos de padron which were needlessly cast in a beige batter, preventing one appreciating their crinkled, shiny green skins.

Problem with Top Table Dining cheque being refused upon presentation. Check first if you intend to pay with one (hopefully, the restaurant has sorted out their policy on this by now?)

Generally good service, though it took 15 mins to request, query and finally pay the bill.

This restaurant is abit out of the way. down waterloo road, a few minutes walk past the old vic theatre.
They did serve up a free appetizer which was seafood foam, but both myself and my friend are vegetarian though so we had to send that back.
I had the Veggie Paella which was very tasty once I added some pepper to it. My friend had the mushroom pasta which she also said was nice after adding seasoning.
The highlight was the baileys ice cream and cheesecake - very nice! and the drinks menu was well priced with a glass of nice wine being around £4.
I think overall it would of been abit expensive without the 50% off from top table but it was nice food

We went with 2 other friends at 302 on a Wednesday eve.
The place was really quiet, which is fully ok with me.
The food was ok but nothing crasy about it.
i had the carpaccio of venison in starter which really miss some seasonal. I had fish as main, it was ok. My friends went for the 8oz beef, the quality of the meat was not so nice. There were some fat, the meat was hard.
My firends had desert. There is not much nice options. The brownie was food, but not exceptional. And the straberry desert was a bit borring.
The overal experience was ok and the service very good. With the 50% discount I found it a bit too expensiveregarding to what we had.

Had dinner at Three O Two after National Theatre matinee.The service was quite outstanding -a warm welcome followed by attentive and knowledgeable service to help us find our way through the interesting Spanish themed menu.The food, generousely portioned tapas for starters and some well presented meat and fish mains was good-the fish particularly so.The value with the TT offer very good indeed.We will return.

Great takes on traditional tapas. Really unusual. Fabulous tapas starters and tasty mains. Would definitely recommend this place. Very good value with the toptable voucher.

Service was a little odd in that things were brought out at different times, took a while to bring drinks/straws etc and took plates away at odd times. Finally the head waiter asked us all how we would be paying and on which cards, wanted us to say whether they were visa or mastercard etc, then blindly attempted to guess how five people were all paying. (two couples and a one) then when he came back five minutes later with the bill which was split incorrectly, told us it would take 25 minutes to change. Very strange way of doing it and not customer friendly.
