“Great evening”
Reviewed 26 October 2013

Very impressed with this place. Visited for a birthday party with about 15 people. There was a good atmosphere with background music and the drinks and food menus gave plenty of choice for everyone including vegetarians and really nice non alcoholic cocktails. The manager Miguel helped the evening go well, he was very attentive and accommodating about us bringing a birthday cake and presented it accompanied by happy birthday music to make a fuss of the birthday person, also shook his hand and wished him happy birthday which was a really nice touch. Staff were all very friendly and polite with high quality service. The food was also delicious, the chorizo especially was great quality. Many of the group opted for the set menus for which there is a choice of several and everyone had plenty to eat. It was a big group but all the food arrived promptly. It was also fine for others to have drinks only or come later, so very flexible. It was a great evening - really glad to have found this place and hope to return again soon. There were some alcove areas that also looked good for smaller groups/couples.

“A Good Evening”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

I visited with a group of work colleagues - 10 in all - on a Wednesday evening. We were given a warm welcome and were able to spend some time over drinks at the bar before settling down for our meal. The manager looked after us very well and we all very much enjoyed our food. The meatballs in particular were excellent. I am not sure why others had a negative experience - perhaps it varies according to the staff on duty. All I can say is that we had a very happy and enjoyable time. The manager was at the door to shake hands with each of us as we left. Well done!

Poor service, poor decoration, and unfortunately average food. I was disappointed by the attitude of the staff when booking a table, and the surly attitude extended to the experience of eating there. I felt ignored and to top it all off, the food was at best average.

“Worst food I have eaten!”
Reviewed 31 July 2013

I went during lunchtime, and with a relatively empty restaurant I expected half decent service. Service was slow and inattentive, took 20 mins just to order the food, another 20 mins to get our drinks and another 10 mins on top of that before our food even arrived! Once we were finished with the food it took 20 mins after signalling for the bill for the bill to arrive...

Once the food arrived, the tapas was disappointing tasted like reheated microwaved tapas, and served in such a way that each tapas plate only contained what seemed like only half what would normally be served for a single tapas dish. The seafood paella which was to share contained almost no seafood, with only 3 mussels a couple of rings of squid and two prawns, and on top of that the rice was extremely soggy and over cooked.

Overall: Horrific Food, Terrible Service and Extremely overpriced; suggestion: go to ortega for tapas around the corner.
