Saw this on the Amazon voucher site and thought we would give it a go. Great value! Flamenco dancer and guitarist provided the entertainment, good food and nice staff. It is set in the most unlikely place, a basement, but the dancer was excellent, although we did have to twist our necks to see her. very good atmosphere. Superb communications... More

We went to a London Theatre and before we thought we would try the Tapas at this subterranean restaurant. The atmosphere was good even though it was early evening. The dish selection was excellent, and all the ones we ordered were very tasty. Drinks prices were not unreasonable, and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Good food and good value.

Four of us went here the Saturday before Christmas. We booked a table for9pm so we could stay there the evening rather than going earlier and having to move. The food was good, a varied selection and quite reasonable. We really liked the atmosphere though and at around 11pm ish it turned from a restaurant to quite a lively night... More

Had dinner here recently being pre theatre so we were there when the place opened at 5pm. Once down the flight of stairs this is a lovely cosy restaurant and we secured a round central table for 5 of us. The tapas menu is extensive so suited all tastes including vegetarian. All the dishes we ordered were tasty and the... More

We recently visited Salvador and Amanda for our annual Christmas party. Considering the venue being right at the heart of Leicester square, a great place to start your night. We were around 60 in size and even within busy period as because of prior booking, the restaurant reserved continuous tables for us. You can have nice selection of Sangrias here... More

I have been here twice, first time for Christmas party with my friends, wich was quite good because we only have drinks and music. Second time I have been here with my boyfriend for the flamenco show and it wasnt what I expected at all. The tapas to share was alright, but not enough for 2 people so we finish... More

Ended up as a great evening! Don't judge the restaurant by the exterior because once you go down the stairs it's got a lovely cosy Spanish atmosphere with dark mood lighting. Lamb was gorgeous, a must get! Patatas bravas was a bit plain. Seemed quite quiet for a pre-theatre restaurant but had a very bustling atmosphere by the time we... More
