Authentic and mouth watering Tapas, so fresh and tasty. Charming staff and a laid back atmosphere. Ideal for a casual get together with good food whether lunch or dinner. Well worth a visit. Recommended.

Self serve coubter service is a novel idea for a pix bar. Cantina style with high tables. Good atmosphere and reasonable food

Great food as always! We came here as a group of 8 and thought the food and drink was really good, lots of options for all tastes and dietary requirements.

The place is ok, the tapas are delcious, the waiters are all super nice but overall its a bit too expensive at the end of the day for a simple tapas place! Only the beer is cheaper, everything else has the price of a restaurant and this is definitely not a restaurant. The small tables for 2 are very unconfortable especially next to the entrance and close to the tapas bar where there is insane movement all the time.

Was running late and called to let Pix know, they were very nice about that and were friendly when we arrived. Food and drink was great, whisky sours and you really can't go wrong with tapas. The goats cheese and fig was the surprise highlight. Try it If you see it.

We were seated as a set of three people at bar-like table so we were in a row which made communication a bit tricky. I quite like the tapas style of going up and collecting the food yourself, but I found the restricted space a bit frustrating when funnelled past fellow customers. Food generally was tasty, but consistently found some dishes cold (e.g. calamari) some of which really need to be enjoyed hot in my opinion. As we went in dry January I was still surprised at the cost of our bill, partially that can be put down to sheer greed. However, £90 for 3 people for about 30 minutes of dining experience with only soft drinks sounds high to me (and whilst we paid it, I think putting a service charge is a bit cheeky for a go and get it yourself menu). I think if the hot foods could be put on more hot plates (there were a few) and monitored for how long they have been 'out' for that might be a good improvement. I'd also turn this particular restaurant around 180 degrees so there is more space for the food to be collected and less crowding at the front entrance where a cool breeze will take the heat out.

Food was ok, not as great as the reviews lead us to believe. Portions tiny for the price, and not reasonably priced. Food cold in some of the dishes. Not coming back in a hurry

Great tapas place! It's a buffet kind on place, you need to get up and choose your own tapas, but the food is delicious, and the cocktails as well! Service was very nice, and the area is great, lots of pubs nearby! Definitely recommend

Nice food and it's great that it's already at the counter due to the nature of the business. The restaurant is very noisy though and it doesn't help they keep pumping music too loud from the speakers for such a small space...

The team at Pix were lovely & friendly but unfortunately the food was poor quality/dried out/cold under the heat lamps. I would not go again or recommend it. Although not expensive, it doesn't hold up in taste or quality to similar priced Tapas places in Soho.

A little gem of a place, staff very warm and accommodating, the food was excellent with large variety of choice for tapas. The ambience really sets this place apart, with an eclectic buzz of music stirring in the background, set in warm Mediterranean decor. You should absolutely pay this place a visit, you will not be disappointed.

Arrived at 20:00 on a Saturday evening; there were only few pinchos at the bar. They were adding new pinchos occasionally, but on those moments everybody ran to the bar so they were sold out very quickly...

Bar itself is very loud and noisy, would not recommend going there for a dinner, you can barely hear each other..

Had a fab evening here for my birthday with age range 20s to 60s! Great atmosphere and the food was amazing, plenty to choose from, could have eaten even more! We had average of 7 Pix each and I’d definitely go again.

Lovely food as ever but wine was average and the total cost was a surprise at the end of the evening - prices have crept up... Forgot to use pandillero discount card and should have been prompted by staff

I booked a table for a mid-week lunch with a friend. I had been before some time back.
I was pleasantly surprised, there was a lunch time deal, on the Wednesday, the place was reasonably empty and quiet. As all the food is at the front, this was another pleasant susprise as it can get quite crowded.

As before, the food was amazing, thoroughly enjoyable on many levels. It is not a place were you get served, however, we were lucky with our seats as they were always offering new fresh plates being brought out to us as they passed.

The range I feel is more than adequate.

I would like to see some more traditional Spanish fare including Mocilla based foods, more salt fish offerings and even Linguee (eels). A wider range of Chorizo.

The one and only thing I did not like was the hot skewers that did have Chorizo, but the grade was low quality and little flavor.

We will defiantly be going back.

The drinks are extremely overpriced even for London. £12 for standard cocktails like just Gin and tonic or a mojito is ridiculous. The food is nice but small. There is a optional but default service change despite it being a place you get up and get your own food, drinks are served to the table but this was very slow. There was a fairly large group of us (12), at the end when we came to paying we had to put all the sticks into one pot instead of just each person paying for their own sticks which caused confusion. Also the waitress just couldn’t be bothered, when she came back with the bill she just wanted to split it 12 ways and was visibly annoyed when we wanted to pay individual amounts (some people had much less than others). They should either be more accommodating, or just not take bookings for larger groups.

I love this place and it's an easy one if you're meeting friends who may/may not want to eat. They were a bit confused about our booking and we had to ask for our glasses to be cleaned, but the staff are friendly and welcoming and I love the vibe here. It's not cheap, but it's a fun place for a quick bite and glass of cava. They always have great music.

Hadn't realised that this was a self-service tapas bar when I booked but the concept worked well and the food was really good and there was lots of choice. Like all buffet style offerings, it was good to try and catch the food as it came out of the kitchen rather than the food that had been sitting out on the table for a while. Decent value and a good quick pre-theatre supper destination.

The premise of the restaurant is really unique and the décor and presentation is fantastic.

The layout is a little odd considering you have to go up to collect your food, passing in a small corridor with a full restaurant and busy staff is quite difficult.

We went on a Saturday evening, and as the staff were so busy our drinks took 20+ mins to order and arrive both times we ordered. (apparently there was only one person on the bar...) The staff were rushed off their feet, so its difficult to blame them but they weren't particularly accommodating.

Nevertheless, the restaurant was good, and I think on a less busy night it would be fantastic.

Lovely laid back tapas bar. Drink prices on the average for soho. Easy to go overboard with the self service tapas. Price of the tapas depends on the size of sticks. Be aware that you have a time limit on the table no matter how much you order or spend. Overall I would go back maybe not at the weekend.
