“If you care more about your sourroundings than you do about the quality of the food”
Reviewed 21 April 2013

The food is good but over priced. If you are a person who relishes the materialistic over the experience of dining then El Vino might register on your radar. Practically better value and atmosphere to be had elsewhere.

“Dreadful service”
Reviewed 13 April 2013

I have previously visited this restaurant and it was quite good but the standard has significantly slipped. I visited today and the service was dreadful. We were left to wait to place an order for over ten minutes as staff cleared empty tables (no one waiting for them) and waitress ignored us and proceeded to take order from a party that arrived after us. I have eaten here many times but the attitude of the staff today means I will never visit again

“Good tapas”
Reviewed 31 December 2012 via mobile

Ate here twice in dec and tapas were very good, in particular the chorizo and black pudding dishes. The desert baked alaska was very disappointing-the ice cream was completely melted-3 at the table ordered this dish and only 1 got solid ice cream in d middle

“This place was good, but no longer”
Reviewed 31 December 2012

Summary - never again.
A lot of food is pre-packaged.
I didn't think you could burn coffee.
Toilets could do with cleaning.
Service awful (is it really that hard to remember 4 things).
Asked for the bill as dessert didn't arrive. It then arrived when we leaving.
