“Great Food & Superb Value!”
Reviewed 6 April 2014 via mobile

We visited Russina's on a Saturday Afternoon for my daughter's birthday. They had a 2 tapas & drink offer for just £8, which was a bargain. Nearly all of the usual dishes were available on the deal. We ordered another 10 dishes between the 7 of us. The choice of food was impressive, especially for the 4 of us who are vegetarians. The food was amazing, dish after dish came out from the kitchen to tempt our taste buds. Our personal favourites were the garlic mushrooms, baked Camembert & patatas bravas. Each dish was piping hot, freshly cooked & a good size portion. The service was equally good. We spent about £12.50 a head including a drink each and left feeling totally full, so thought it was extremely reasonable. The restaurant itself doesn't scream come on in from the street but don't let that put you off, the clean bright interior is pleasant, the welcome is welcoming & the food is brilliant. We'll be back there very soon, maybe we'll see you there?

“Try it, you might like it!”
Reviewed 5 April 2014 via mobile

We gave this a try because we are fans of tapas and because we wanted to support something new in our local area. It was fairly quiet on the night that we visited but still a very nice atmosphere and the staff/owners were very friendly. The food was lovely, with plenty to choose from and some really good deals for set menus etc.. We will definitely be returning :-)

“GIVE THIS PLACE A TRY”
Reviewed 28 March 2014

We visited on a Thursday night with another couple.Unfortunately we were the only ones in but had a brilliant time.The whole place was warm and welcoming as was the owner.We chose 2 set tapas meals from the £18 for 2 menus so we could share.it was all tasty but the calamari was excellent. The wine was good and reasonably priced.Please give this place a try as we need such restaurants to survive in Paignton we can't wait to return

“Excellent Food, Service and Value for Money!”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

Visited in February with friends after they managed to squeeze us in at the last minute. We were going to book for 7pm and they asked if we could get there a quarter of an hour earlier as they had 2 larger parties in so we didn't have to wait too long for our food. It was good that they had used their initiative! We were greeted very warmly and the service was excellent all round. The food was very reasonably priced and was extremely tasty. We run a guest house and we will have no hesitation recommending Russinas to our guests and in fact have already done so! We will be back soon!!

“Just a must”
Reviewed 21 March 2014

Again a visit to Russinas (our 4th time), this time for lunch which was just wonderful!
We chose from their 8 pound lunch menu offer, which is fairly comprehensive, breaded jalepeno's, the bread board, chicken pepperpot and chorizo paella, All of it was served piping hot, very well presented was extremely tasty and was more than enough for the two of us. The service was second to none, with us being asked if all was okay and if we needed anything else and the restaurant was very clean.
If you haven't been yet, GET THERE NOW! before it's too late, it really is worth it and you can only judge if you've been!
Thank you for an excellent lunch and we will see you soon.
