“West End Tinto, Hyndland Street”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

Was taken here for dinner on Friday 6 June. The tapas are about as good as you'll get anywhere (including Spain) and the specials were exceptional. The service was less good and, although we were offered a drink as soon as we were seated and the food order taken when we were ready, we had to wave someone over and eventually got the wine order taken.

It was the same throughout the meal: although the staff were charming and helpful, it was not easy to get their attention as no one seemed to check the tables to see if customers needed anything. We felt the place really needed a front-of-house person in charge to point out these things to the waiters.

It's a shame about the service, as the standard of food is well above that.

Every time we eat in here it is delicious, they never fail to provide you with an exceptionally tasty meal. The atmosphere adds to the whole experience also!

“West End Tinto - Not Good”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

Had lunch here with a friend and had six tapas dishes off the main menu between the two of us. I enjoyed a goats cheese dish but nothing else. Felt the food was really poor. We also ordered a jug of Sangria but it was probably the worst I have ever tasted. Would definitely give this place a miss.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

We visited tinto at Battlefield late this afternoon and have to say were really disappointed with the whole experience. We have been there on numerous occasions and always recommend it to others but sadly this was our last visit. I'm afraid that the food wasn't up to its usual standard, the Waiter should perhaps retrain in Customer Service and the final straw was being over charged by nearly a third of our bill!!
