About La Bobina
La Bobina; the buzzing Spanish Tapas Bar located in Faringdon Oxfordshire, Bringing you a taste of Spain fresh every day in the fabulous building which once was a 19th Century haberdashery, still with all of the original features. By night La Bobina Tapas Bar and Spanish Restaurant comes alive with Spanish Music, often live flamenco guitarists creating a fantastic atmosphere for couples in corners or large groups enjoying and sharing authentic traditional tapas, with a quirky specials board including the daily mystery special ‘plato de misterio’
Excellent experience all round. Food fresh, well cooked, flavoursome, well presented - would recommend olives and sourdough to start, lamb meatballs (fantastic tomato based sauce) white fish in batter, chilli and garlic peeled prawns, anchovies, squid and samphire ... Service was very good, helpful and friendly. Only suggestion is that service staff stay visible to customers rather than stay behind scenes as difficult to get their attention when needed. We all enjoyed our lazy Saturday lunch and will definitely visit again - thank you !
I booked a table for 4 for Saturday night on line. I knew it was busy but when booking the confirmation said that we had to vacate the table by 7.00 pm which was not a problem.. When we got there no table was ready and was told we could sit at the bench in the window or upstairs which was empty so we chose to sit on the bench. There were empty tables downstairs which were not sat at during our time there. We were also told that we must vacate by 5.30 pm. I was disappointed as the service was so rushed and felt that we were hustled out by 5.30 pm. Not sure if I would recommend to a friend as even when I had booked a table expecting to leave at 7.00 to be rushed out the door by 5.30 pm.
Amazing - one of if not he best restaurant locally
Great place to eat, the staff are so friendly and can't do enough for you, I can't recommend La Bobina enough. The food is delicious and the atmosphere is fantastic.
the tapas were OK dissapointed with the pescado borracho and lack of bread to degust the excelent Albondigas. Not Spain but 80% there.
Great place. Had a brilliant meal and service every time we've gone!
A surprise find in Faringdon - La Bobina is a stylish venue serving tasty and authentic Spanish dishes (tapas), highly recommend.
It would be nice and hygienic if the dishes were delivered to the table with serving spoons in each one. We had 6 dishes and asked for spoons, just one got brought to the table. Food service and drinks were great though.
Fabulous food and service!
Excellent food, excellent service, all on a busy Saturday night. Will go again.
Always a great night, good food, fun and good value
Whilst the food was good it all came at once and too quickly. It is meant to be tapas not a fast food sprint. The service was dreadful,drinks not arriving. Having to ask several times for water which when it arrived was warm.no eye contact from the staff. It spoilt the evening and we will not be recommending the place at all
Great restaurant food amazing great atmosphere would definitely go again & Recommend can’t fault la Bobina
A wonderful place with a fabulous atmosphere and great tasing food. The portions were larger than other tapas bars we’ve been to and each dish was was delicious. Impressive gin menu too. The people who worked there were polite and attentive without being intrusive. The place itself is an old haberdashery apparently and maintains much of its original character. Really beautiful. Not shiny, highly polished and sparkly but warm and cosy. Would recommend booking.
Great venue, great food
Great food, great atmosphere (it was a Thursday) and we were very well looked after.
Excellent service yet again, never disappointed. Lucky i had reserved a table though!
I think due to the building inside (which is gorgeous) upstairs can get very loud/noisy if fully seated. Service and food is brilliant.
Staff are very friendly and food and drink are all good. Restaurant are very busy, therefore, our ordered drink were served very slow but anything else, we really enjoyed a meal. Thanks
Great food and atmosphere but very slow service. We were waiting well over an hour for food. You need more kitchen staff!
Our party thoroughly enjoyed our visit on Wednesday, food, atmosphere, service was fantastic. The menu of gins was enjoyed by all trying many different ones. All in all a lovely relaxing evening was top of the menu. Would happily recommended to anyone who enjoys the laid back tapas experience. We will be back.
Food brilliant but service very slow
This was my second visit to La Bobina and it certainly didn’t disappoint! We ordered a selection of tapas from the menu which arrived promptly, beautifully cooked and deliciously tasty! The batter on the calamari and aubergine was the lightest I’ve ever tasted and we had more than enough to eat, even (sadly) needing to leave some behind! We’ll definitely be back for more!
Fantastic - shall go again & again
Another great evening at La Bobina. Food to its usual high standard, friendly and helpful staff. Great atmosphere.
