A large Tapas restaurant by the river. To many tables which are OK for a bar but too small for eating. The menus were looking very tired and not easy to read using a reddish colour typeface.
It took quite a while to get the attention of a waitress to even get some drinks. Who was in charge? I had no idea. I think a restaurant needs a clear leader. The dishes were all reasonably priced. We ordered 12 tapas for 4 of us. They then tried to serve them all at the same time with the consequence that half were stone cold. We sent back some dishes, some which needed re-heating and some which needed re-cooking. Why not serve the dishes as and when the kitchen has made them, as they do in Spain?.We go there 3/4 times a year and eat a lot of tapas. Unfortunately a number of dishes that we ordered did not match up to our expectations. Mostly as they were too bland. Best tapa was the empanadas - excellent, and the pork cheeks. Most disappointing the patatas bravas. House wine at £16.95 was quite drinkable. I am sure that they do well here as this relaxed style of dining is becoming increasingly popular. But with stronger management it could be a gold mine. On the plus side we were given free teas and coffees to compensate for the cold food.
