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.

Others seem to love this place and. I just don’t get it. Canary Island potatoes with mojo are wrinkled new potatoes with salt, not hunks of huge potatoes. Paella is made with bomba rice not Uncle Ben’s long grain. This is about as inauthentic as...you can get. The Russian salad was also awful. We won’t be back.More

This is a very friendly resturant in the Cardiff suburb of Whitchurch. There is a wide selection of Tapas with plenty of vegetarian options. But there are also main meals, and you can, as we did, mix some tapas as starters with one-plate dishes as...mains. Certainly I enjoyed the Pisto Manchego con Huevos y Queso along with some tapas dishes. The wine list offers a good choice at a reasonable price. We stuffed ourselves with starters and mains so didn't attempt the sweet menu!More

Had planned to go to Bar 44 tapas in the city centre, but had to cancel so this was plan b. Not been before and won't be going again. Bar 44 on a different level. This was so bland, with no real flavour to the...dishes. The prawn dish and the lamb stew were pretty tasteless. Need to up your game folks. Don't understand how the overall rating is highMore

We had another lovely family meal at el camino. We made the point of retrieving after having a wonderful time in June. We live in North wales, and had been in Cardiff during the day shopping. The food was lovely and service fantastic.
