    This was a return visit. I was only there 2 weeks ago and enjoyed it soo much that I came back brought friends with me. The food and Sangria is lovely! But it’s all let down by one male waiter this time, that likes to rush people who have booked. My open table booking says that you have the table for up to 2hrs but our waiter approached our table 1hr into our set menu. He said have you finished your mains, which we hadn’t. And said you only have 30 minutes left on your booking and he needs to serve desert. I told him the email says 2hrs and he said he’d check but didn’t come back to respond but only to serve desert. He then returned at 1hr 45mins and handed the bill and said that we need to finish now. He ruined our night out. And no one was waiting for the table. And there where plenty of empty tables available. My friend didn’t get to finish her drink.

    I have just returned from Spain yet I was happy enough to catch up with my old friend at a Spanish restaurant so we tried this place. The food and wine were really enjoyable. I hope the service would make us feel warm and welcomed. We were charged $210 for bread, charcuteries board, octopus, mushrooms and zucchini, house wine by bottle ($60) and two glasses of vermouth. For what we had it was quite expensive.

    Just average in terms of food. Good starters but leave before the mains. Got half a kingfish fish fillet - when we ordered the ($40) “fish of the day” and it was undercooked. Subpar food and service in comparison to the other Tapa Vino resturaunts.

    Overall a good experience. "Outside" dining worked well on a cold night - cosy heaters and protected from the wind. The service was good and friendly; the food was a bit mixed with some dishes excellent and others rather ordinary. The drinks list is dauntingly long - cocktails were disappointing but the recommended wine was excellent. Noisy initially but improved significantly as tables near us emptied. Not a cheap night out!

    We arrived at 8pm and the restaurant was supposed to close at 10.30pm Upon arrival, we were told the kitchen would close 10mn later. We had to leave and find another place. Wish they could have warned us when we booked the table 30mn before arrival - we wouldn't have spent any money on a Uber...

    First time returning after Covid, weren't sure what to expect and pleasantly surprised. We were regulars prior and always loved the food, service and atmosphere. Everything was great, loved the Galecian octopus dish but less potatoes more octopus would have been outstanding. Overall excellent experience and we will be back!

    1000/10 - went for a GNO and we opted for the sangria and set menu. Absolutely everything on the menu was outstanding. Specifically the croquettes, the beef cheek, the salad, and the chorizo (I could have easily named every single thing!) The Eton mess was absolutely devine. We ended with an espresso martini and would definitely recommend that, too. Can’t wait to go back!
