Fantastic as usual. Different for us to visit for lunch, but £12 for 3 TAPAS and a soft drink is great value

Good morning Sent this via e-mail on Saturday, but have since had this separate feedback request. Apologies for repeating myself! I felt that the whole evening was top class. The food was fantastic and the service was impeccable - having people like Laura (?) from Gran Canaria lends a great authenticity to the experience and I would urge you to keep this aspect. That’s not to say the lady from Madrid and Samuel were not first class too of course! The knowledge and passion with which the food and wine were served was a real pleasure. The only minor suggestion I have for you and this is with specific regard to the tasting menu, is perhaps to include some bread and the Canarian potatoes as free extras. I’m not saying that it wasn’t good value per se, but over £200 for two people is at the top end and sometimes little gestures like that can go a long way. Plus it gives you the opportunity of presenting some of your regional specialities - the potatoes are of course well known as is the mojo rojo. I feel it would add to the whole experience if these were brought out as ‘freebies’ Obviously that’s just my suggestion. I would repeat that I couldn’t really fault anything - in fact we’re still fondly recalling the banana cheesecake! Keep up the good work - it’s a rarity to find such standards nowadays

Absolutely lovely meal out. Easily accommodated a very large table and we're very generous with the cava for the bottomless cava offer. Would definitely book again.

First time in the restaurant, booked as a birthday surprise for husband. Service was hit and miss - luke warm welcome, waited a long time for drinks, just OK and not really worth the 10% auto add to bill. Server was pleasant and helpful on tasting notes. But just not as we'd expect on a quiet Sunday when not exactly rushed. The atmosphere didn't help, all guests clustered in small area despite there being nobody in, hard to get into booths. Just didn't feel special and decor wasn't unique, Spanish or anything of note or to make it stand out. The food was the highlight thankfully. All dishes were good. Not all amazing, although the chicken and steak were beautiful. But good and high quality produce. I realise this is a negative review but intend as constructive not just criticism. It just wasn't the special occasion or dining experience we were hoping for. And for £165 we were left wishing we'd chosen elsewhere and maybe tried la Bandera on a night when it wasn't as important if things weren't up to expectations.

Poor lighting in the booths. Food was nice but overpriced. Would expect waitresses to know more about the food for a tasting menu and be given better welcoming service.
