    If you've read other negative reviews about this restaurant, do yourself a favor and trust them. Aside to have a pub pumping horrible music at full volume on the lower floor, the dining experience was awful. The bad taste decor was the first thing we've noticed the food was next. 100% precooked and microwaved food, it did arrive fast and tasted bland. The staff was not responsive when we tried to get their attention and generally looked bored, gotta deserve that service charge (which seemed higher than expected). If you don't care about a decent dinner I would stll recommend a fast food over this restaurant. "

Would be a very good deal with 50% off all food, however when we got our bill were told prawns weren't on the Taste discount, so it came in more expensive than planned. If we were told in advance probably wouldn't have ordered them as were looking for a cheap mid week dinner out. "

    We shared a platter of Spanish meats & cheese, followed by a great mix of meats, fish and vegetables, all of which were delicious. Three tapas per person for a main course was what we were advised by our waitress, which was spot on. I have to say I thought the wines were very reasonably priced too. Great little tapas bar and very good value too "

    " Customer service was very good and was able to use tastecard no problem.
    Food was not amazing and pretty average as didn't taste very fresh. Nothing was inedible though! It is also pretty boring tapas and nothing exciting. If you're expecting Barrafina/Tapas Brindisa quality you will be very disappointed as this didn't really even match half that standard. I didn't really expect much and only tried it out because it is close to my work and was on tastecard - it met my expectations of not delivering (sorry). Will not be going back in a hurry. "

    Made a booking at the Bloomsbury restaurant. I called the number on the Tastecard website. When we arrived (party of 3) I was told there was no reservation. Turns out the number listed on the Tastecard website is for the Covent Garden location. So what did the head waiter do? He asked us to sit at a bar table staring at a blank wall. And eat and enjoy a meal. No thanks we said. No other attempt to right the wrong and we walked out. I cant help but think that this is a classic case of customer contempt. Literally the poorest treatment from any restaurant in recent history. Adios Salvador y Amanda. And poor show from Tastecard for listing inaccurate information. "

  • Razvan said: "Tasty Spanish Food
    Me and my girlfriend had dinner the other day and we enjoyed almost all of the food we ordered:
    SELECCIÓN DE JAMÓN, CHORIZO Y QUESO (Selection of Serrano ham, chorizo and cheeses (Manchego, Tetilla and Mahon)
    PATATAS BRAVAS (Potatoes in a spicy tomato sauce)
    ARROZ NEGRO CON CALAMARES Y GAMBAS (Black rice with squid, prawns and aioli)
    GAMBAS AL AJILLO (Pan fried shell-off prawns with garlic and chilli)
    CROQUETAS CASERAS DE JAMÓN (Homemade ham croquettes)
    LOLLIPOPS DE CHORIZO CON AIOLI DE MEMBRILLO (Chorizo lollipops with quince aioli)
    Salvador & Amanda, you need to improve on your "patatas bravas". They were quite dry and the ajoaceite should be main sauce. This constructive criticism is coming from a non Spanish food explorer.
    The other dishes were delicious and my Spanish girlfriend approved their quality. Not sure about the squid ink you used for the black rice, but the flavor "nous a touche a l'ame" .
    I know we cannot expect the upper dinning room, but it would have been nice to have us seated at a different table than the one you did, so it wouldn't have that crowded feeling.
    One last thing: please put mostly Spanish, not only South American music. "

    Through the throng to a calm upstairs restaurant, just in time for an unexpected happy hour bottle of wine -- good start!

    My companion and I ordered four tapas: the absolutely scrumptious black risotto with squid and prawns; a tasty chorizo dish and wonderful roast veg -- followed (as requested) by a platter of cheese and melba toast.

    Since we both had something to celebrate, we had a couple of glasses of cava. I inadvertently caught the waitress's arm, which caused some drink to be split. She very generously brought me another glass and waived the charge on both of them!

    It would have been very good value, even without the free cava -- and especially with Tastecard (even on Fri and Sat). We would definitely go again. "

    This restaurant/bar is a real gem..we had a few plates of tapas to taste and all food proved to be of superior quality..chorizo,chargrilled vegetables,pan seared tuna with edamame beans and picante salsa on top...
    Only rustic tomato bread was average and patatas bravas were not those lovely wrinkly spuds you get in Spain,but tasty nevertheless. Wine was great though expensive,but with Tastecard we got a 50% discount off food so worked well.Discretionary service charge wasn't opional..it got added to the bill automatically. We were served expertly by a lovely Italian young lady,all in all I will warmly recommend this lively bar that was packed by the time we were leaving!

    " I feel like everyone else was at a different restaurant to me! The food was bland and boring - we had sea bream that was so overcooked, salmon that tasted of nothing, patatas bravas ith shop bought mayo squirted on them... I wont go on.
    The table was dirty, the staff were just about passable... a huge service charge was added to our bill, almost hidden as well so I ended up paying it. The sangria wasn't on the menu, we asked for some and were brought a huge jug which cost £17.50... rather than asked what we would like.
    All in all I wouldn't bother, its not good value even with the taste card and its not authentic, in fact its bar food in a bar which is a dressed up as a restaurant. I should have complained in there, but the staff were so univiting I didnt feel I could. Don't waste your time, go somewhere else! "

The only disappointing thing is the service it took us up to half an hour to get our orders and further half an hour to get our drinks and didn't really felt we were looked after so wasn't really impressed apart from that if you are looking for good food definitely recommend but other than it overall is okay.

    I met a friend here for a quick catch-up over some tapas. The experience was the perfect atmosphere for an after-work dinner. We arrived to a quite busy bar area but were shown to the quiet upstairs restaurant level where we had very attentive service. We ordered around 6 or 7 dishes to share - the best being the crispy baby squid and the chorizo lollipops, the least being the scallops with squid ink sauce (but I think that’s just a matter of preference rather than quality). Thursdays are great because a pitcher of sangria is on offer for £10! The whole bill came to £17 each - seeing as this included alcohol and we were completely stuffed I'd say it was excellent value for money. "

    The restaurant is located conveniently close to Holborn but doesn't feel in the middle of the crowds. It is a tapas bar but the atmosphere is relaxed and comfortable. The service was fantastic and friendly, efficient but not overbearing. All of the tapas we selected were delicious and flavourful. Normal prices are not bad but with the tastecard, it is a definite must visit! The sangria was a great complement to the meal, and we even managed to squeeze in the churros con chocolate. "

    Food was amazing so was the sangria.
    Unfortunately, my friend and I were seated next to a very noisy bunch of drunk girls and we could barely hear one another.
    Staff was polite but seemed a bit bored. Nobody asked if the food was ok or said goodbye when we left. However, the food and the drinks made up for it. "

    If you've read other negative reviews about this restaurant, do yourself a favor and trust them. Aside to have a pub pumping horrible music at full volume on the lower floor, the dining experience was awful. The bad taste decor was the first thing we've noticed the food was next. 100% precooked and microwaved food, it did arrive fast and tasted bland. The staff was not responsive when we tried to get their attention and generally looked bored, gotta deserve that service charge (which seemed higher than expected). If you don't care about a decent dinner I would stll recommend a fast food over this restaurant. "

Would be a very good deal with 50% off all food, however when we got our bill were told prawns weren't on the Taste discount, so it came in more expensive than planned. If we were told in advance probably wouldn't have ordered them as were looking for a cheap mid week dinner out. "

    Three of us choose here for dinner. The reviews were mixed, but we decided to give it a try and we not disappointed.
    We shared a platter of Spanish meats & cheese, followed by a great mix of meats, fish and vegetables, all of which were delicious. Three tapas per person for a main course was what we were advised by our waitress, which was spot on. I have to say I thought the wines were very reasonably priced too. Great little tapas bar and very good value too "

    Food was not amazing and pretty average as didn't taste very fresh. Nothing was inedible though! It is also pretty boring tapas and nothing exciting. If you're expecting Barrafina/Tapas Brindisa quality you will be very disappointed as this didn't really even match half that standard. I didn't really expect much and only tried it out because it is close to my work and was on tastecard - it met my expectations of not delivering (sorry). Will not be going back in a hurry. "

    Made a booking at the Bloomsbury restaurant. I called the number on the Tastecard website. When we arrived (party of 3) I was told there was no reservation. Turns out the number listed on the Tastecard website is for the Covent Garden location. So what did the head waiter do? He asked us to sit at a bar table staring at a blank wall. And eat and enjoy a meal. No thanks we said. No other attempt to right the wrong and we walked out. I cant help but think that this is a classic case of customer contempt. Literally the poorest treatment from any restaurant in recent history. Adios Salvador y Amanda. And poor show from Tastecard for listing inaccurate information. "

  • Razvan said: "Tasty Spanish Food
    Me and my girlfriend had dinner the other day and we enjoyed almost all of the food we ordered:
    SELECCIÓN DE JAMÓN, CHORIZO Y QUESO (Selection of Serrano ham, chorizo and cheeses (Manchego, Tetilla and Mahon)
    PATATAS BRAVAS (Potatoes in a spicy tomato sauce)
    ARROZ NEGRO CON CALAMARES Y GAMBAS (Black rice with squid, prawns and aioli)
    GAMBAS AL AJILLO (Pan fried shell-off prawns with garlic and chilli)
    CROQUETAS CASERAS DE JAMÓN (Homemade ham croquettes)
    LOLLIPOPS DE CHORIZO CON AIOLI DE MEMBRILLO (Chorizo lollipops with quince aioli)
    Salvador & Amanda, you need to improve on your "patatas bravas". They were quite dry and the ajoaceite should be main sauce. This constructive criticism is coming from a non Spanish food explorer.
    The other dishes were delicious and my Spanish girlfriend approved their quality. Not sure about the squid ink you used for the black rice, but the flavor "nous a touche a l'ame" .
    I know we cannot expect the upper dinning room, but it would have been nice to have us seated at a different table than the one you did, so it wouldn't have that crowded feeling.
    One last thing: please put mostly Spanish, not only South American music. "

    Through the throng to a calm upstairs restaurant, just in time for an unexpected happy hour bottle of wine -- good start!

    My companion and I ordered four tapas: the absolutely scrumptious black risotto with squid and prawns; a tasty chorizo dish and wonderful roast veg -- followed (as requested) by a platter of cheese and melba toast.

    Since we both had something to celebrate, we had a couple of glasses of cava. I inadvertently caught the waitress's arm, which caused some drink to be split. She very generously brought me another glass and waived the charge on both of them!

    It would have been very good value, even without the free cava -- and especially with Tastecard (even on Fri and Sat). We would definitely go again. "

    Only rustic tomato bread was average and patatas bravas were not those lovely wrinkly spuds you get in Spain,but tasty nevertheless. Wine was great though expensive,but with Tastecard we got a 50% discount off food so worked well.Discretionary service charge wasn't opional..it got added to the bill automatically.

    The table was dirty, the staff were just about passable... a huge service charge was added to our bill, almost hidden as well so I ended up paying it. The sangria wasn't on the menu, we asked for some and were brought a huge jug which cost £17.50... rather than asked what we would like.
    All in all I wouldn't bother, its not good value even with the taste card and its not authentic, in fact its bar food in a bar which is a dressed up as a restaurant. I should have complained in there, but the staff were so univiting I didnt feel I could. Don't waste your time, go somewhere else! "

    I met a friend here for a quick catch-up over some tapas. The experience was the perfect atmosphere for an after-work dinner. We arrived to a quite busy bar area but were shown to the quiet upstairs restaurant level where we had very attentive service. We ordered around 6 or 7 dishes to share - the best being the crispy baby squid and the chorizo lollipops, the least being the scallops with squid ink sauce (but I think that’s just a matter of preference rather than quality). Thursdays are great because a pitcher of sangria is on offer for £10! The whole bill came to £17 each - seeing as this included alcohol and we were completely stuffed I'd say it was excellent value for money. "
