Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We have been a couple of times, and I'm surprised to see how many negative reviews they have on here. We have never had anything to complain about, as the food is delicious, hot, quick and filling. Wine is tasty (although they don't have shiraz,...but that's not the end of the world) The place has always been on the quieter side when we've been, but maybe that's why we've had good service. I would absolutely go again and I'm sad to see what so many have had bad experiences and that is not my experience at all.More

Booked to go to Fino Blackpool on the 2 February as attending the theatre at The Grand. Received an e mail confirming time at 5.15 and we had to vacate the table by 6 45 which was absolutely fine. Arrived at 5.15 and the restaurant...was closed with no explanation. Extremely disappointed and thought it was very poor.More

What a lovely little Tapas bar this is. Polite and friendly staff, not a huge choice of tapas dishes...but every one we had was well presented, tasty and hot. The meatballs in tomato sauce and the calamari were my 2 stand out dishes. Whitebait, patatas...bravas, dips and humous complimented the meal. If you like Tapas and are fed up with fish n chips or the usual Blackpool fast food please give it a try...I. sure you'll not be disappointed.More

My husband and I decided to try Fino as we had walked past many times since it opened. The restaurant was very quiet, in fact only 2 other people and ourselves. We ordered our food. My husband ordered Tapas and myself the Sea Bass and...1 Tapas as a side. My husbands Tapas came and my side, I was told your sea bass won’t be long. The sea bass arrived almost 30 minutes after and was over cooked. I said to the waiter it would’ve been better if our meals had come together, he said it’s because the sea bass was on a different menu. If the restaurant had been busy I would understand the delay, but we were the only people that the chef had to cook for. When we complained the waitress said that one of the chefs was off sick….how many chefs does it take to cook 4 tapas and a sea bass??? God help them if they had been busy. The restaurant was freezing cold. We ate our food in our coats. We won’t be eating here again and definitely do not recommend itMore

Will not return. Food crazy spicy that should not be spicy, with no warning on the menu and an argumentative Manager. Awful service, which unfortunately let the rest of his team down. Caused us to go to our theatre show hungry.

I did visit the Preston restaurant on the way to Blackpool and was pleased to see they had a Fino here too. Their fresh chorizo cooked in red wine is to die for, same as the potatoes «brava» - and no need to be brave...to try, a gentle kick that you can soothe with churros on vanilla ice cream! Loved it but booking is recommended.More

One waitress brought us over a bottle of tap water which had food stuck to the side of it and the water glass provided for me was dirty, I asked another waitress to provide clean ones, she was attentive and quick. The coke was poured...out of bottles and my diet coke was extremely flat. Put aside these two points the food was average and tasted ok.More

We had booked a table, but many hadn’t and were being turned away, no need to be nasty to the staff in this case!!!! Could hear everything staff said ?! So the positives first - Food is lovely! Manager lady very efficient, but without her...it’s run by kids and very unprofessional and unorganised- definitely training required. Negatives - Ordered sharing platter - with Olives. Would have ordered separately but they came on this so win win or so I thought. One of my pet hates is restaurants thinking they can pull the wool over our eyes??? When I asked where they were - young boy said oh we’ve ran out! So why didn’t they just say that, instead of thinking o wouldn’t notice??? Restaurant cold, bright and no atmosphere Drinks came out twice simply because of no communication. Calamari quite obviously frozen and rubbery. Service terrible by the young staff - tip removed from the bill and so glad we only ordered a small amountMore

A walk in, recommended to me, and it did not disappoint. The tapas good, mushroom croquettes, calamari, charcuterie board with a glass of wine. Straight forward, simple and tasty.. definitely would go back.

Ordered quite a few Tapas dishes between my husband and I. They would bring out 2 dishes at a time with 10 15 minute gaps instead of all of them together. Tapas dishes are meant to come out together. My husband had 2 dishes and...I had none?? When I asked why I was told this was how they do it there. We cancelled the rest of the dishes ordered paid for what we had and left. Also ordered prossecco and cava came out. The restaurant was also very cold. Staff however were very pleasant. Had looked forward all week to this meal and shame really we were so disappointedMore

We went to Fino on Saturday late afternoon the place was virtually empty which we should have taken as a warning. We where directed to a small table even though there where many bigger and more space tables available, because it might get busy, it...didn’t. When we ordered they came back and 2 items where not available, not much hope for the rest of the weekend. We should have left then. The food was mediocre 2 items where wrong! The service from the waitress was very good but the ‘manager’ seemed to be having a loud discussion with his mate! The wine conversely was excellent. We will not return.More

We'd chosen this restaurant for a pre-theatre meal, booking the day before. It was like a little slice of Spain! Authentic decoration, music, nice atmosphere. We ordered a selection of 5 tapas between 2 of us which was just enough, and were amazed at how...fast the food arrived, probably 15 mins at most. Every one of the dishes were delicious, particularly the garlic + chilli prawns and the meatballs with bravas sauce. All that food, plus a few drinks - £26. They were doing a 50% off offer. Not sure if it was just a Thursday thing, or maybe as an early bird special (we were eating before 7pm), but a very nice surprise nonetheless. Maybe the locals knew about it and that's why it was so busy, a few people were getting turned away at the door, so I'd recommend to pre-book.More
