We popped on here last Thursday evening.. We were lucky to get a table for two as place busy... Nice buzz and atmosphere.. Think it had something to do with the weather outside being nice for once!! We shared a tapas starter of the black puffing.. Nice but deffo steep and overpriced at 10euro.. What's with the Irish obsession with over charging for tapas bites to eat!! Main courses for good especially steak sandwich.. Bit of a wait to get mains tho.. Service was super pleasant and the manager I think who was foreign was friendly and nice.. Nice spot for a glass of wine but take onto account tapas ain't cheap!!

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.

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

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
