I have been waiting to dine here and was not let down. We changed our booking from 6 to 8 then one person randomly saw us and say with us no questions asked. We had someone on our table who wasn't the most pleasant but they tolerated her. All foods were so nice and sangria you can just drink away. Staff were so friendly and great and describing the food! Will 100% be back. I had the 10 course meal the only course I didn't like was the Beetroot one.

Great food and exceptional service - that's why I keep going back!! Even with the seasonal menu I still haven't tried something I don't like. A great place to have a lovely meal at a reasonable price. Well done Duende!

Service from our female waitstaff was exceptional. She knew the menu and wine list intimately and her recommendations were spot on. This fact made the night memorable and easy to recommend.

Great dining experience for a leisurely Sunday lunch for 2. Only one small negative was that the lovely sherry we had was served icy cold. It really should have been room temp. Other than that all perfect.

The food was beautifully presented and tasted amazing. I loved the different combination of ingredients and flavours. It took awhile for us to get seated, but the food really made up for it. Being tapas/share style food, it makes for a social and enjoyable dining experience.The price of the food is what I'd consider to be quite high, so I wouldn't go here every week. But I have been here several times for special occasions and have always loved the food and wine.

A family birthday celebration with six adults was made very special at Duende. The staff were attentive, helpful, knowledgeable and efficient. The food was amazing - we ordered lots of different dishes and all were delightful. My husband couldn't believe how fresh and tasty the natural oysters were. The drinks' list was good - I loved my 3 margaritas! One of our party couldn't eat pork and the chef was extremely helpful in accommodating for this. It was a wonderful night - Duende - thank you!

I first visited Duende not long after it first opened and was very impressed by the menu, the wine list and the service, not to mention the groovy vibe of the place.This time I found the experience even more enjoyable, the food was still interesting and mouth-watering, the wines lovely and the waitress was knowledgable, friendly and very pleasant as well as on the ball. I love the decor of Duende and the unpretentious nature of the staff.
