My mother was visiting the UK for the first time and we wanted to have a nice night out. I came across this deal on Groupon for the Flamenco Show and a meal for two (which seemed to be great value for money) so I've bought a voucher and made a table reservation over the phone 4 days in advance....

The venue is very dark and intimate, but with the Spanish music and dance it creates a very sexy vibe. Some of the seating is in awkward positions (you would get bumped or be walked past many times) but we asked to be moved and immediately were hassle free. We had tapas and wine and everything was delicious. They had... More

I was invited to this restaurant with a friend and it was opened especially early for us to have a flamenco lesson which was awesome. The food was also great and the wine was brilliant. As a group of old friends some of whom we hadn't seen for two years it was a great catch up. At 9pm we were... More

We went here for a hen night and when I heard it was tapas I was weary of not getting enough, was I wrong, or was I wrong. Amazing selection and way too much food. Everything was amazing. If only my stomach was bigger, I could have enjoyed more of the delicious dishes. The service was a little bad, we... More

This has to be one of the best Latin-inspired venues in London. The staff are friendly, helpful, attentive and professional right from "meet and greet" through to waiting staff. We arrived early and had cocktails at the bar until our table was ready, then had a fabulous tapas meal. Every dish was delicious and cooked to perfection. We hadn't expected... More

If you need somewhere that will probably have space, want quick tasty food and in the heart of Covent Garden/China Town then this is the place for you. Huge space in basement, good selection of Spanish tapas style dishes, drinks half price between 5-7pm (a bonus) and the staff very friendly. I ca see this would be very popular with... More

My wife and I had reservations for a tapas pre-theater package; the price was really good but the selection for the pre-theater was limited while the main menu was quite neat. A Salvador Dalai film ran in a loop and the décor was quite amazing. Disturbingly, although we were pre-paid for the meal they tried to submit a full bill... More
