    Lovely relaxed place to have gorgeous tapas, I've been a few times now. The staff are very welcoming and will accommodate any reasonable requests. Example I asked if we could move tables because I lip-read it was a bit too dark where we were sitting, it was no bother to them. Certainly a place I would go back to specially for patas bravas yum!

    Loved our evening meal here. Good recommendations on food (and wine) from the waiting staff and friendly smiles all round! Food was delicious and the wine was tasty too. I like the vibe in this place, I’m sure it’s kicking on a Friday and Saturday! Playlist could be a bit more ‘Spanish’ I think but other than that, great time. Value for money…I do think £15.00 for one dish is a bit pricey, but that’s all.

    Fantastic food, drink and service. Cannot fault anything. Had a great experience. Food is to die for, freshest pint of Estrella in London and good cocktails. Staff were brilliant. Owners made us feel at home. Been here three times and highly recommend for either a date or large party.

    Lovely restaurant and great vibe. Food as good as you can get in any top restaurant in Spain. The black rice and Octopus are cooked to perfection. Some great wines on the menu and a perfect Espresso Martini to finish the night. Service was lovely and efficient. Will be back very soon

    Having lived in spain for 6 months I was looking forward to this meal. Unfortunately everything was covered in garlic?? No idea why but unfortunately this made several pieces very unpleasant to eat, so was left. We won't be back.

    Overall Tapajax is a nice restaurant with good ambiance, however we felt place was a little cold both in temperature and general attitude, food is nice but overpriced for portions you receive compared to many other tapas restaurants we have been to. Would we go again, maybe, bur there are better places to go who offer a richer menu at more competitive prices.

    The food was quite disappointing and it took a long time to arrive. When it did arrive it was cold. We could have asked to send it back but thought it would take too long to get a new one.

    Definitely as everyone said very friendly service but it was slow - we had one dish relatively quickly (olives and padron peppers - one of my favourites but way too much salt all you could taste in the end was the salt) but then had a 25 min wait for the rest of the food - chorizo great and quality but the prawns we couldn't eat dry and way too much chilli and left them. Then paid cash and was asked if I wanted back the change! Surely it's for me to decide if I tip or not.....

    Food was over priced for what it was. Battered squid and monkfish were under cooked and most dishes were under seasoned. Expecting much better quality based on prices. Incorrect bill and forgotten drinks but staff otherwise very friendly.

    Food is mediocre. Had to send meatballs back as clearly had been reheated in microwave and chewy. Spanish tapas are simple to make but this was well below the standards of competitors
