Average food but good for group functions and super cheap with tastecard!

My friend had his birthday here hosting a group of us. We had the two tables in the centre of the restaurant which was like our private area. They also had a happy hour which meant the drinks were significantly cheaper. The meal was very reasonably priced considering we used our tastecards... read more

Ate here on Sunday evening for our Anniversary. Our third visit and not disappointed. Lovely food, great service and a good atmosphere. Prices were reasonable for London. Would recommend.

To call the spectacle we saw yesterday Flamencada is an insult to everything that real Flamenco means. A less than 1 hour show with a break with a middle of the road guitarist and singer with a really mediocre and disinterested dancer was a real pantomime of a flamenco show, specially with the advertising of the event. Food was ok... More

My wife and I went here after being given a voucher for our wedding from a Spanish friend. Looking at the place initially we weren't sure it was going to be our thing, but we had a nice collection of tapas dishes, with some beautiful chorizo included, and watched a very nice show performed by a talented woman dancer and...

We where looking for a lighter meal after attending a concert and went past Salvador and Amanda's. It looked very inviting and were welcomed in. The atmosphere was very good with flamenco singers, a dancer and guitarist playing. Service was good and the food came quickly. The quality was very good and proportionate to the price. Grant you it is... More

The look and feel of the restaurant really sets the scene for a truly authentic Spanish experience. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The choice of food and drink was very good. The sangria was very nice indeed! The tapas was OK but nothing extraordinary unfortunately, but still very enjoyable. The staff even arranged for a cake with sparkling... More

Nice atmosphere and quick service but the food was a let down, everything tasted like it had been reheated in a microwave. I felt there was no effort or love put into these dishes, the meatballs were bland and tomato sauce was runny and had no flavour and the calamari was rubbery and overcooked. The only saving grace was the... More
