We frequent La Botija whenever we can really afford it. Set up in a former pub - but with a beer garden few can match - it has been a tapas restaurant for a while now. The food is excellent. In the past seven or eight trips, I think we have felt mildly let down just once, which is very... More

Went for an evening meal and found the garden lovely and busy. Our food was tasty and well prepared. Service has problems, as they are friendly, but dis-organised, which in an odd way added to the evening. We were asked if we wanted to order 30 minutes after ordering, and then had to wait another 30 minutes while our order... More

We visited here for lunch and chose to sit in the garden. There is a lovely under cover area here which is perfect for the very hot and sunny weather we had today. We felt as though we had stepped into Spain and the addition of chill out music added to the ambiance. We were looked after by a lovely... More

Great food. Good Rioja and very friendly staff. Now with an excellent garden terrace which will make this a very popular place when the sun is out. Just go and enjoy a lovely meal out.

We took a friend for supper who was a bit lukewarm about going to a tapas bar having done the rounds of the tapas chains. This is quite different. The owner and chef take the trouble to innovate so each time we go there is something a bit different to try. Razor clams and chipirones, steak you cook yourself on... More

We are always greeted warmly in the Botija by Sergio and all his charming staff. Service is slick and the food is very tasty. A great little corner of Espana on Warlingham Green.

The food was lovely only problem is we were charged a 12.5 service charge for two adults and a three year old on a Sunday lunch time crazy That alone has deterred us from going back we spent nearly £80 on our meal it is their loss to greed

I had an enjoyable meal out with four friends, good food and drink and great company. I particularly liked the baby octopus which was fantastically cooked The issues: Staff were overly attentive At the end of the meal when we split the bill I was told that there is a minimum card payment of £40. I wonder where this imaginary... More
