Poured with rain which leaked onto our table and our clothes. We had to move the table ourselves!
Only fish was a very unimpressive battered fish - I’ve tasted better from Aldi.
No desserts available only ice cream.
No coffee available only tea.
Overall very disappointing- staff lovely - but won’t be back.

We love Rico Sabor! Great good and atmosphere and excellent food, but was disappointed that we had booked and arrived with no tables free.
6 of us were then shoved in a really small corner where we couldn't sit around the table properly because there was a lampost in the way! Besides that, we had a great evening and would go back - it was just a bit cramped.

Wonderful evening with hubby, we called and asked for our booking to be put back an hour - this was accomodated with no trouble at all, when we arrived we asked if we could be sat under the heater - our waitress went and got the ipad to check if this was possible - unfortunately it wasn't due to other larger bookings but she showed me these bookings and suggested me and my husband switch seats and this solved the problem.
Great staff, great food 10/10 and I'm a tough crowd to please!

Food was very nice, obviously we’re all desperate to get out even if it doesn’t mean sitting outside in the cold. Couldn’t feel the heaters. Main point was the customer service, weren’t made feel welcome, all seemed like a bit of an effort and hearing them ask the next table ‘are yous all done ere’ is not really how you expect customers to be spoken to. Experience at Gravesend was far better.

Lovely food , made as comfortable as possible due to restrictions eating outdoors
Heater didn’t work all the time, but can’t help the chilly April evenings
Was asked when booking if any special notes . Mentioned it was our 25th wedding anniversary, but obviously wasn’t read at the restaurant, as no special treatment here ! Never mind , would have been a nice touch though

Due to Covid restrictions we sat outside, there were heaters so it wasn’t too cold. Staff were welcoming, food was good. I went with my husband to celebrate our anniversary and we will definitely go back!

Poor start before we even got in the restaurant as didn’t know if my table had been confirmed or not, called back after 2 missed calls and then they left me on hold for 15 minutes so I hung up. Extremely poor line when I eventually got through. How hard is it to put a note on the book system to say if the customer calls back all is ok???
Once there it was all good, like usual.

The food was outstanding! We had a delicious meal which was reasonably priced. The area was heated and the service was fantastic. We have had a few meals here and this was by far the best we have had.

Most of the dishes were very nice. Didn’t like the prawns in in a thick white wine sauce - they were not fried ... tasted bland.
Was a shame the coffee machine hadn’t been fixed before opening.
Outside dining not great as heaters did nothing to keep us warm.
I’m sure the experience inside when allowed to dine indoors will be much nicer.

My bestie and I came to Rico Sabor for the first time on 4th November 2020 on the Eve of the 2nd lockdown. We booked up on the day and got a table at 21.00hrs one hour before closing time, we were seated quickly and we ordered our tapas all came within 5-10 minutes, good portions, well presented and tasted great too. Would recommend Rico Sabor to all to use.

I felt the Food was not quite up to standard in my opinion. Needs more seasoning. Ambience very nice, staff lovely. We received 20% of our bill - a nice surprise, Making it good value for money.
