One of the best tapas restaurant I have found in London

I went there with a bunch of Spanish friends on a Sunday lunchtime, admittedly not the traditional time for tapas. Waiting time was very short, as there were very few people when we arrived. The service was good. The staff was Spanish, I mean they know what they were talking about when we asked... read more

I pre- booked a table for 3 at Salvador and Amanda, the booking was made for 7pm. Upon arriving there was nobody at the front desk, we made our way down the stairs and had to inform bar staff that we had arrived. We were then told by one of the waitresses that our table would not be ready for... More

Having been to Salvador and Amanda's on previous visits to London my partner and I thought it to be a safe option and reasonably priced. Unfortunately I have to say I was disappointed with the quality of the food this time around. Upon arriving we were put on the wobbly table in the corner which meant that the atmosphere we... More

Wine - traditionally Spanish delicious the waiting staff were attentive & allowed us to dine slowly at leisure. Following the meal - dancing... More

I booked here for a business party and paid quite large sum of money for food and drink. Although I found it a nice atmosphere I was very disappointed with the level of customer service. Only half of our party arrived and it meant we had a bottles and bottles of opened wine and beer which were completely untouched. When... More

I had a groupon coupon with a friend for her birthday. We wanted to book before the expiring date, but all the tables were fully booked. The staff have been friendly and accomodate our request. Tapas were great, delicious food. The flamenco show, the atmosphere and the overall experience were excellent. It's definitely worth it.

Table for 2 on a Tuesday evening - booked via a coupon for the 8 tapas meal with glass of Cava and flamenco show. Everything was great, setting is like a converted cellar. We weren't rushed at all, the food was really tasty, served with a smile and the flamenco with spanish guitar playing just made the evening. Would highly... More
