We had the £29.50 menu including a drink , it was excellent I had the gammon terrine to start and then the chicken which was also excellent and to finish the brownie which was excellent! Service was excellent and music was amazing, but you need to be a great salsa dancer to be brave enough to get up and boogie!

A group went for a friend's birthday on a Saturday night. It was packed out and the atmosphere and the band were good and just what we expected but the the whole thing was let down by the poor service and very average food.

Once we were seated we were served our starters relatively quickly and trouble free but it quickly went down hill from there. We asked several times for extra condiments to be brought to our table which never arrived, Our drink orders were taking best part of half an hour to arrive.

We were sat down at just after 9pm and we were finally served our mains at around 11:30pm. Not all the food arrived at the same time and mine and another friend had to wait while our quesadillas took extra time to arrive. When it did come it was fairly bland and definitely not really worth the wait.

We were told that we weren't allowed table decorations or anything like that, yet there were hen parties in there with cowboy hats etc on.

We had brought in a birthday cake which needed assembling by their 'pastry chef' but quite frankly it was very shoddily done.

When the bill arrived they had added on extra drinks that we had not ordered and had the cheek to add on a service charge which came to the best part of £100. Needless to say that was swiftly taken off the bill due to the service being so bad and slow.

I appreciate it was Saturday evening and a peak time, but that's no excuse for poor and lazy service when you're paying these sorts of prices.

A real shame as it has huge potential as a venue, but it seems to think they are better than they are.

I visited Floritia with a friend on Wednesday. I am giving this review a 5 for our waiter Gytis who was attentive and funny and made sure we had a great night! We both had the set menu with mojito.. the food portions were bigger than I was expecting which was a nice surprise, also very tasty. Loved the atmosphere and live music. Had a great night, thanks! :)

This use to be my favourite restaurant. Loved the mojitos and the Picanha steak. However during my last visit something had changed, service was not as crisp, clientele was different and the food not up to par.
Think D and D have taken their eyes off the ball. Get back to basics simplify the menu! Why not bringing in a Cuban chef to consult so that you get some authenticity back. Increase the service focus and get new bartenders basically a complete re-org!
