Still receiving Email confirmations and then turning up to the restaurant to find it closed was very disappointing, regardless of the COVID-19 situation.
The restaurant was closed due to COVID (not an issue) but please Let your customers know! I had a Celebration planned and had booked but it was closed and no one told me
We were so excited in August when we were able to book a table for my birthday. We received a booking confirmation, the day before we confirmed the booking, drove from Swindon to arrive and find the place closed, having not even bothered to put a sign on the door. We tried ringing but just got a voicemail saying they hadn't reopened. I instagrammed the lady who managed to find my phone number from the booking and call me, which shows they have access to the bookings and could be proactively ringing and cancelling bookings ahead of the evening. We missed the call and she left a voicemail but I havent heard from them since, now here I am being asked to leave a review... Luckily The Bull were able to fit us in and the food there was lovely.
We booked and received confirmation by email but turned up and the restaurant was closed. We were so disappointed as had been looking forward to going for months!
Well, there was most definitely nothing buzzing at La Bobina on Saturday 22 August!! Most disappointed that when my friend and I arrived and found the place closed. I booked on line and later on received an email asking for confirmation of my booking. When we arrived I called the landline number only to hear a recorded message saying that they were closed until October!! Clearly the online booking has not been updated to say closed. So so disappointed.
We turned up for our booking on our daughter's 20th Birthday to find the restaurant closed. And you're still asking for a review!!? Unbelievable.
Whilst I enjoyed the food I did find it rather salty with meagre portions. Service was excellent and I loved the building. I am sure the atmosphere would be lovely with live music.
Great food and a lovely lively atmosphere. Friendly staff
Very interesting menu and we enjoyed the different flavours in the chicken, chorizo, crab and hake.
We visited for a good friends birthday. We were greeted and generally looked after by Mariella - friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. Nice atmosphere and absolutely delicious food and wine. One tiny criticism was that the lights were very bright - seem to remember our first visit on a weekend last year lighting was cosy and subdued. Other than that, a great experience!
It was a great lunch
Very nice evening good atmosphere as always. So pleased that Faringdon has this excellent venue! Can I just say we love the chicken liver dish but it appears to have peppercorns it it now? Ok for me but Jacqui was disappointed. Didn't stop our overall enjoyment though!
Very good food as always and friendly service
We had a great evening - the food, drinks and staff were as amazing as always!
Another fantastic time at La Bobina! We were originally seated upstairs, but when they saw we were with two young children they sat us at the table with a view of the kitchen. The kids were made up! Service was great, and as always the food was delicious. Definitely made my birthday dinner a good one ☺️
Food and service was perfect. We had a lovely evening. Will definitely be coming back. Thank you x
Amazing as always
Great food and great service. Thanks for a really enjoyable evening
stunning meal ,,, prices were more expensive than other tapas restaurants but i think with the service and food so on point it was justified
First visit to a Tapas Bar for our friends and there were very impressed. Excellent food would definitely recommended it and visit again.
We have visited La Bobina many times and keep coming back to celebrate special family events and just for treat nights out, we all love it and are never disappointed. From the quality of the service, food, drink and atmosphere it’s all excellent and we look forward to our next visit.
This was our first visit to La Bobina, we'd heard many good reports on the quality of the food, drinks and atmosphere of this venue. Our experience was exceptional and we'll be returning for more of the same, great staff who now their menu and roles to make it an evening to remember.
Brilliant food , great friendly service & great music & atmosphere. The staff are all very knowledgeable about the food & gin ! My husband tried 4 different ones & loved them all. Good value for money
Staff were really attentive, great atmosphere and food
We did enjoy our evening but service was slow, accepted the restaurant was busy but it took 45 mins before we received any food and once it started arriving it came sporadically. Also compared with other tapas meals we have had portion sizes were on the small side, but overall there was a good atmosphere, the staff were friendly and I would happily recommend it to others.
