Carnaval Meat & Spanish Tapas Cocktail Bar
Visited final night before 2nd lockdown, we expected it would be busy however we got a table and had a nice evening there, great selection of Spanish and contemporary food. The staff worked real hard - so great effort there given the challenges. Cant wait to return.
Excellent food & service, great from start to end will be back asap.
Tables too close together, very noisy - people talking too loudly (increases the spread of the virus), waitress with mask not covering her nose and cash only! This is my favourite restaurant but they were ignoring all the measures needed to prevent the spread. I felt more vulnerable than any other time since the pandemic started.
The food as usual was excellent.
Lively local restaurant, serving good quality tapas. Great value and service.
Okay food but felt overpriced for what it was. Very loud as well.
Excellent experience, went for lunch . Cocktail delightful 😋
Very poor experience. Sirloin steak not cooked correctly(twice) tapas worst l have had, wine overpriced and waitress only wearing mask over her mouth. Only excepting cash which is ridiculous given covid.
The food was great, it arrived quickly and was freshly cooked. The staff were very attentive, even though the restaurant got busy and adhered to all COVID requirements. Our first meal out since March where they had managed to make it feel 'normal' despite the restrictions. We will definitely go back
Fantastic restaurant, we thoroughly enjoyed our visit and found the food to be superb
It was all round great, just one thing....they put olive oil on my cheese platter which I didn’t like!
Frustrating we couldn’t pay by card but otherwise amazing meal
Help diners decide where to eat. Remember to keep it short, simple and specific.
Great service, as if tailored for each individual. Very friendly. Very good hygiene.
Was not COVID secure no hand gel on door tables very close together waitress was wearing mask but because music was so loud could hardly hear her and she did pull the mask down a couple of times ! Food overall tasty and hot, sangria tasted just like cheap red wine glass was £8 !service not greet and miserable servers but pricey too won’t be returning 😞
Excellent food and excellent service such a great find.
Brillaint food and excellent service. I will definitely be going back soon
Yes definitely recommend. Lots of food and couldn't eat it all.
We will definitely be back was such a great little find in our hometown. Loved it
We had a really enjoyable Evening at Carnaval last Saturday.
The staff were friendly and made helpful suggestions as to what items to choose from the Tapas menu. The portions were very good, hot and delicious, and we shared 5 between 2 of us before we went to the theatre.
We also had a jug of Sangria which was very easy to drink!
The prices were reasonable, the ambiance was gentle and not intrusive so we could talk to each other easily.
We will be going again in the future and would recommend.
This place was fantastic and the food equally so. Great decor and atmosphere. Tapas dishes were authentic, full of flavour and fresh ingredients. Service was a little slow at times but only noticeable as we had hungry children with us(!) and certainly not something that would put me off dining there again. Would highly recommend dining here.
Very good food. Would highly recommend. Looking forward to returning
Very nice meal
Staff overall good.
The music a little louder than i would have preferred.
Food was average , nice place , good atmoshere , nothing really special ,
Tapas is amazing!! In the main course the steak was quite tough but flavours were amazing
Lovely relaxed restaurant. All tapas dishes lived up to expectations and served quickly. Will definitely be back.
Very pleasant atmosphere food was authentic and delicious x
Great food, good value, I would go again. The tapas were great, the paella was good, the prawns in paella (King prawns) were dry and over done. But overall a great restaurant with good food and service.
Great little gem of a restaurant and the food is delicious
A great Spanish Tapas restaurant with friendly staff and an extensive wine list. Very reasonably priced.
Great food, service and ambiance, prices very reasonable.
It was a nice small restaurant which seems to be family run. We had some tapas, a paella, sangria and some churros. Apart from the flaming chorizo which was good, everything else was just OK. The paella was crazy salty and was sent back. The second attempt was less salty. The bill was not too bad but given the food and service not sure if I would give it another go.
Lovely and enjoyable tapas, plenty of selection. Very friendly staff, made very welcome. Will be returning.
Good menu. Food excellent. Staff very helpful. Good Spanish vibe.
Been there a few times never disappointed always 1st rate.
We loved this place! We over-ordered, but ended up devouring almost all of it. The food was delicious, ambiance was great, and service was prompt and friendly. Highly recommend.
Lovely family meal here on Friday. It was my first visit but will definitely be returning. Staff were very welcoming and food was lovely. Overall good value for money
Good quality, freshly prepared & cooked in open kitchen.
Initially service was slow but the food did come out really quickly and was very good. Delicious and large quantities, bigger than we had thought. Would highly recommend to others
A lovely evening spent here, food was excellent, was very noisy and seating was a bit cramped, the food was excellent and would return
Great food and good choice.
Good service and reasonably priced.
Restaurant a bit small so recommend booking. noisy due to it being small but would definitely go back
