Me and my wife and son tried Fino's one Sunday afternoon around 2 pm June 2014 and it was amazing! The staff were friendly, very polite and new exactly what they were doing despite some of the reviews on here. I called prior to visiting to clarify things, and the staff did very clearly.
They made sure we got the best deal on the day and we paid around £37 for two adults all you can eat, over child's set tapas menu meal with a pudding, and 4 or 5 soft drinks. This was absolutely brilliant value, quality and service! All of the food was fresh cooked to order, and really high quality. I totally did not expect it to be so good as it is an all you can eat restaurant but it was really something special! I would highly recommend it to any family for any occasion! It was a shame not too see it busier as it was a real find! We have walked past it many times without realising it as its next door to another chain pub, but you must go and try it! We were put off initially because of some of the petty reviews on here, but I think you should make your own mind up, and go with an open mind and empty stomach as you won't go hungry or be disappointed! Highly recommended and I can't wait to go back! Vamos!

After a wander about dropped in here and very pleased we did. Service only bettered by the food and not often you can say that. We just wanted something lightish so able to choose from the lunchtime menu but was so tasty we went for more in the end. It was delicious - and I am fussy eater. Service excellent. Place clean and cheery. Pity we don't live nearer or we would be regulars!

We had the unlimited tapas....£30 including a house drink for 2 adults and the young ones had the half price version.
Everything we ordered was excellent. We particularly liked the whitebait, poco chorizo and pork stew.
Over the years we have eaten here several times a year and it has always been great.
This kind of offer is brilliant value.
Younger children with smaller appetites than ours, can eat free at the weekend with these adult meals from a 3 course menu, with unlimited drinks....ours have loved that too.

We visited by accident after a long day on the Funfair with my partner and 3 year old and my friend and her 2 year old and 5 year old..
Nice clean restaurant, good seating and fun colour scheme.
Good value menu offers.. Children ate free and good choice on menu for little ones..
Food arrived quickly and was DELICIOUS.. Good choices on set menus and very knowledgable staff regarding individual dishes..
Very good toilet facilities exceptionally clean and nice touches of moisturiser on offer!!
Very good experience would recommend to anybody well worth a visit..
Need to advertise more as had no idea it even existed and even when close by it was easily missed..
Would I visit again?? YES definitely I have dishes I've yet to try!!

Went here on Friday for a meal with a friend before going to see a show at the Theatre.
Food was great, very tasty and good value for money. The only downside is if you dont like tapas and prefer plain food, there is nothing for you (would be no good for my other half).

The service was great and Jonathon was a very attentive waiter.

Would recommend.
