Basque restaurant serving pintxo, tapas and unique wines
Very enjoyable evening.
Always great, the team are delightful and the food amazing.
Really enjoyed a post theatre supper
The choices on the list of daily specials could be more evenly spread between vegetarian, fish and meat. The air extrator in the restaurant is not efficient, clothes smell of cooking each time we left the restaurant. Staff is amazing, in particular, Sara - she is always beaming when someone walks into the restaurant.
Wonderful evening ..:
Year after year Donestia remains consistently wonderful!
Nice restaurant with authentic Spanish food. pleasant atmosphere
Had a delicious meal and a lovely evening. Thank you!
Our table was cleared while we were in the washroom and we were told to leave. We still had wine left in our glasses and we were rushed out. Very disappointed as it was a special night. We have visited the restaurant for many years but first time we Had such an experience.
Amazing food and warmest service in London by a mile...
Daily specials were good. Red prawns were microscopic and over cooked. Generally overpriced for everything (like most tapas/pintxo places in London. Staff were keen and helpful. Went before the theatre so atmosphere was v quiet.
Not good, not bad, only disappointing
A personal favourite! Highly recommended.
One of our favourite restaurants in London. Luckily we live nearby so we get to go to it quite regularly!
Wonderful long lunch; exciting and delicious food, and delightful service. Highly recommended - even for pescatarians!
Great food, drink and atmosphere
I have already complaint, with no response. I like the place and the food is nice, although small portions. The reason for low scoring is based on the terrible hangover we had the four of us, just drinking two bottles of red wine
Excellent experience as always. Table ready when we arrived and excellent food and service. My favourite place in London for special dates! Jose Luis
Excellent service, lovely staff and most importantly AMAZING food! I love Basque food a lot and I left feeling very satisfied.
Really loved the meat!!
Both the standard menu and the daily specials are delicious.
Excellent dinner and wine, full 5 star experience! Very good service! Highly recommended!
