50% off at Salvador & Amanda - Covent Garden

Situated between Leicester Square and Covent Garden, Salvador and Amanda offers respite from the hustle and bustle of London with authentic tapas and welcome drinks.

The inspiration behind Salvador and Amanda comes from many trips to what the Spaniards call the ‘Real Spain’; cities such as Madrid, Bilbao, Lagrona and San Sebastian.

Salvador & Amanda captures the essential vibrancy of Spain, drawing influence from the new wave of stylish bars that combine tapas with cocktails and music. It's relaxed and informal, where a cosmopolitan cafe crowd can linger over a cocktail or eat as little or as much as they like until the small hours.

Important Information

Please Note: The tastecard discount is not available on Friday and Saturday evenings. All bookings must be made in advance before 5pm and tastecard mentioned at the time of booking. The tastecard discount excludes all Specials. The tastecard discount is not available on Valentine’s Day or during the month of December. They offer 50% off the total food bill; a maximum of 4 people can dine using 1 taste card. Salvador & Amanda require that an email address is left when booking online to allow a confirmation email to be sent. The tastecard must be presented upon paying the bill.

    The food was lovely. We had a selection of cheese and meat, chorizo hash, potatoes, Spanish omelette and lamb. The lamb and butternut squash was cooked wonderfully. A tad salty but that's expected with Spanish food. Nice bar and would definitely go again. "

    " Potentially a good restaurant with really good atmosphere. Some food arrived cold and was sent back but once heated was good. Went to the restaurant in Tuesday when their more expensive flamenco night was taking place and felt like second class citizens stuck at the back of the restaurant with a curtain draw. To block the view. Waiter didn't know the vintage of the wines or which cheese was being served on the cheese board. We refused to pay the 12.5% service charge. "

    Food was very average, bordering on not great, could have been the tapas we ordered but I'd say chain tapas is even better than the food here, LA tasca etc.... And you're hoping for something better with the prices

    Service was pleasant and nice decor/ design. Without taste card would definitely have been over priced and might have gone as far as complaining at the quality.

    Were seated and food on the table within 20 minutes of being there which is good on the one hand but makes you think food is all reheated and definitely not fresh.

    Happy sangria and beers are great deal and worth getting there before 8 for.

    Wouldn't recommend to a friend sadly, purely on food quality. "

    Having been to the bar before and being impressed, I was really looking forward to trying the food.

    The main issue is that everything was really bland, the chargrilled veg, potatoes and the ribs were just 'meh'. No flavour whatsoever despite the appetizing menu. That aside, I have a very severe egg allergy and ordered the patatas bravas which had a thick layer of garlic mayo under the tomato sauce. I didn't realise this until eating it as the menu does not say this anywhere. Needless to say I was sick in the restaurant. When initially telling one of the waitresses she just said "that is how we make the potatoes". That is fine, but label it. Egg is a common allergy and I'm pretty sure there is law to say you have to label foods correctly.

    The staff were helpful after that and our bill was discounted a bit, but I would not be going back, with antihistamines or otherwise. "

    We chose this restaurant as the reviews in general are really good. The decor and at sphere are great - it's beautiful and warm, and feels authentically spanish. We enjoyed a nice bottle of white wine during happy hour, and the food was tasty with plenty of healthy options.

    Unfortunately the service was a let down. Our waitress was grumpy and rude. She barely spoke to us, she didn't smile, and once we hadn't eaten she didn't come back to offer desert or coffee, we had to call her over.

    I would go back, but with my fingers crossed for a different waitress!

    Finally, if you don't tell them when booking that you have a taste card, they won't accept it! "

    Nice place, food is excellent. Staff are great However, when use tastecard for less 50% total bill. It really wasn't 50% off. There is a service charge added. Then at the bottom of the receipt says Service charge optional but they already billed and charged you for it. Doesn't really make sense. Was too much in a hurry to argue. But that's not how you treat first time customer. "

    Chose this restaurant to visit last week Thursday (15th May) for my mother-in-laws birthday.

    I was given a criteria (by the family) of Thai or Tapas. I chose Tapas, and this restaurant seemed like worth a try.

    I called in earlier that afternoon to reserve a table. It gets busy so don't leave it last minute, although we did manage to get a table at 9pm - this might be too late for some, but as this place is open till 3am, it didn't seem so bad.

    Upon arriving, parking is difficult, but drive around for a few minutes and you'll pick up a spot.

    Family were taken to their table and drinks ordered. A variety of cocktails to choose from and the usual selection of soft drinks (not coke, but pepsi).

    Both the wife and mother-in-law were pleased with the atmosphere, a real party mood, and city life of young and energetic souls. Good music, and we had a private booth in the centre of the restaurant. Can't ask for more to celebrate a birthday!

    First round of tapas served 7 delightful dishes, from chicken wings, ham croquettes, cod, potato, pear salad, bread and olives. Every dish individual and tasty! (Ham croquettes my personal favourite).

    A second round of tapas brought to the table of pork ribs, king prawns, pepper salad and fries.

    Food was served swiftly and flavoursome.

    Cocktails were flowing, and made the perfect way to quench our celebration thirst.

    Service was efficient, and although busy, we were able to catch the attention of staff when needed.

    Restaurant started to quieten down towards 11pm, although it was a Thursday night.

    No problems with using the tastecard, although I did mention it when reserving our table.

    Will be returning with friends very soon, to try out the rest of the tapas menu. "

    " Great food with some memorable dishes. However inspite of the 50% discount your bill is not going to be easy to digest at this place. It has a nightclub like atmosphere (with dining upstairs) and you will be hard-pressed not to order drinks to start off with, at full price. Of course if that's part of your plan then this shouldn't be a problem. There was a 12.5% service charge on top as well. "

    Went there pre theatre, great menu, fantastic service. Without the taste card the prices are a bit steep, I don't think I would go there without it. The food itself was delicious. The chef's dish of the day - duck with pomegranate was tasty indeed. A must try is the creme brulee with almond moose, divine. Thank you for such excellent service. Will definitely be going there again. "

    " Although the Covent Garden one is listed on Tastecard, we went to the Bloomsbury branch as Covent Garden was fully booked - a good sign for a Tuesday evening...
    The Tapas was excellent - the Black rice with squid, prawns and aioli was recommended by the waiter and he was right - it was delicious.
    An added benefit was happy hour if you got the drinks in before 7pm - a good house Red or a litre of Sangria for a tenner, though I guess you'd need to check on the day as to whether this was available.
    Overall excellent quality and value - will definitely return. "

    Nice menu if you want something quick before doing something else. The octopus was underwhelming, as were the meatballs, but the chorizo and butter beans, pork loin and ham croquettes were winners. Good service from the staff. Good atmosphere, if slightly too noisy for my tastes... I really don't think it needs the music. "

    Welcoming staff, waiter was very good sharing specials menu and helping choose the tapas dishes for us. Generally on hand when we wanted drinks etc.

    Food overall good, chilli garlic prawns seemed to be missing the chill and garlic in taste but visible in the dish, but otherwise good food.

    Would happily go back again and recommend for an easy tapas meal/experience. I am sure there will be other better food places, but good experience overall. "

Between four of us we had a starter to share and 4 tapas each (there was so much, 3 would have been plenty). We also shared a big jug of sangria and it worked out about £15 each!

Food was good, a lot better than some other tapas places in the area, and service swift and unobtrusive. Only issue was the 20% service charge added to a statement that said 12.5%, presumably in the hope that we wouldn't notice! I wouldn't mind paying a bit extra given the savings with the card and the nice time I had, but I find this lack of transparency a bit against the spirit of things. Peter Robins "

Even on a busy and loud Saturday night this place ticked every box and some. It felt like you were no where near the hustle and bustle of Leicester Square with the food and wine transporting you striaght to Spain! I would absolutely recommend this to anyone.

    " Potentially a good restaurant with really good atmosphere. Some food arrived cold and was sent back but once heated was good. Went to the restaurant in Tuesday when their more expensive flamenco night was taking place and felt like second class citizens stuck at the back of the restaurant with a curtain draw. To block the view. Waiter didn't know the vintage of the wines or which cheese was being served on the cheese board. We refused to pay the 12.5% service charge. "

    Food was very average, bordering on not great, could have been the tapas we ordered but I'd say chain tapas is even better than the food here, LA tasca etc.... And you're hoping for something better with the prices

    Service was pleasant and nice decor/ design. Without taste card would definitely have been over priced and might have gone as far as complaining at the quality.

    Were seated and food on the table within 20 minutes of being there which is good on the one hand but makes you think food is all reheated and definitely not fresh.

    Happy sangria and beers are great deal and worth getting there before 8 for.

    Wouldn't recommend to a friend sadly, purely on food quality. "

  • Diner1 said: "Bland and badly labelled
    Having been to the bar before and being impressed, I was really looking forward to trying the food.

    The main issue is that everything was really bland, the chargrilled veg, potatoes and the ribs were just 'meh'. No flavour whatsoever despite the appetizing menu. That aside, I have a very severe egg allergy and ordered the patatas bravas which had a thick layer of garlic mayo under the tomato sauce. I didn't realise this until eating it as the menu does not say this anywhere. Needless to say I was sick in the restaurant. When initially telling one of the waitresses she just said "that is how we make the potatoes". That is fine, but label it. Egg is a common allergy and I'm pretty sure there is law to say you have to label foods correctly.

    The staff were helpful after that and our bill was discounted a bit, but I would not be going back, with antihistamines or otherwise. "

    We enjoyed the food but the meatballs were cold and a little bland. We we very disappointed in the fact that about 6 menu options weren't included in tastecard despite this not being advertised anywhere on the website or in the terms and conditions. Why is this? "

    We chose this restaurant as the reviews in general are really good. The decor and at sphere are great - it's beautiful and warm, and feels authentically spanish. We enjoyed a nice bottle of white wine during happy hour, and the food was tasty with plenty of healthy options.

    Unfortunately the service was a let down. Our waitress was grumpy and rude. She barely spoke to us, she didn't smile, and once we hadn't eaten she didn't come back to offer desert or coffee, we had to call her over.

    I would go back, but with my fingers crossed for a different waitress!

    Finally, if you don't tell them when booking that you have a taste card, they won't accept it! "

    Nice place, food is excellent. Staff are great However, when use tastecard for less 50% total bill. It really wasn't 50% off. There is a service charge added. Then at the bottom of the receipt says Service charge optional but they already billed and charged you for it. Doesn't really make sense. Was too much in a hurry to argue. But that's not how you treat first time customer. "

    Chose this restaurant to visit last week Thursday (15th May) for my mother-in-laws birthday.

    I was given a criteria (by the family) of Thai or Tapas. I chose Tapas, and this restaurant seemed like worth a try.

    I called in earlier that afternoon to reserve a table. It gets busy so don't leave it last minute, although we did manage to get a table at 9pm - this might be too late for some, but as this place is open till 3am, it didn't seem so bad.

    Upon arriving, parking is difficult, but drive around for a few minutes and you'll pick up a spot.

    Family were taken to their table and drinks ordered. A variety of cocktails to choose from and the usual selection of soft drinks (not coke, but pepsi).

    Both the wife and mother-in-law were pleased with the atmosphere, a real party mood, and city life of young and energetic souls. Good music, and we had a private booth in the centre of the restaurant. Can't ask for more to celebrate a birthday!

    First round of tapas served 7 delightful dishes, from chicken wings, ham croquettes, cod, potato, pear salad, bread and olives. Every dish individual and tasty! (Ham croquettes my personal favourite).

    A second round of tapas brought to the table of pork ribs, king prawns, pepper salad and fries.

    Food was served swiftly and flavoursome.

    Cocktails were flowing, and made the perfect way to quench our celebration thirst.

    Service was efficient, and although busy, we were able to catch the attention of staff when needed.

    Restaurant started to quieten down towards 11pm, although it was a Thursday night.

    No problems with using the tastecard, although I did mention it when reserving our table.

    Will be returning with friends very soon, to try out the rest of the tapas menu. "

It has a nightclub like atmosphere (with dining upstairs) and you will be hard-pressed not to order drinks to start off with, at full price. Of course if that's part of your plan then this shouldn't be a problem. There was a 12.5% service charge on top as well. "

The chef's dish of the day - duck with pomegranate was tasty indeed. A must try is the creme brulee with almond moose, divine. Thank you for such excellent service. Will definitely be going there again. "

    The Tapas was excellent - the Black rice with squid, prawns and aioli was recommended by the waiter and he was right - it was delicious.
    An added benefit was happy hour if you got the drinks in before 7pm - a good house Red or a litre of Sangria for a tenner, though I guess you'd need to check on the day as to whether this was available.
    Overall excellent quality and value - will definitely return. "

Food was good, a lot better than some other tapas places in the area, and service swift and unobtrusive. Only issue was the 20% service charge added to a statement that said 12.5%, presumably in the hope that we wouldn't notice! I wouldn't mind paying a bit extra given the savings with the card and the nice time I had, but I find this lack of transparency a bit against the spirit of things. Peter Robins "

Even on a busy and loud Saturday night this place ticked every box and some. It felt like you were no where near the hustle and bustle of Leicester Square with the food and wine transporting you striaght to Spain! I would absolutely recommend this to anyone.

  • "Great atmosphere and tasty Tapas. I was really impressed. The only gripe I had was that my friends and I ended up being late for a concert because it took 45 minutes for the staff to organise the bill with 50% food!Jennifer "
