Lovely Spanish Night in London

I had wanted to try this venue for a while so when I saw an offer of a meal for two, a glass of Cava and a Flamenco show for £39 for two people, I jumped at it. On arrival we were shown to the bar, and a table was made ready for us about ten minutes later. We were... read more

This Groupon deal was for tapas with flamenco show on a Sunday afternoon. The food was well prepared and plentiful. The place is a little crowded but it is an excellent setting to enjoy the Spanish flavour of food and music. Well worth it at the reduced price.

Booked this place for my birthday but was unfortunately left disappointed by the service. I had a group of very easy going people, not nitpicky, not in their nature to complain, so it was a bit upsetting when they their disbelief of the service.

A group of 8 were there this weekend to celebrate a 21st. The food was good but it took us ages to order and receive the food. Tapas are quick sharer plates and we were waiting half an hour to get served. The service was shocking from beginning to end. As soon as we arrived at 7 we were told... More

An exquisite restaurant in the heart of Covent Garden. Excellent value for money - it certainly was a tapas feast! The service and food was spot on. I was pleasantly surprised they offered tap water without having to ask. The Flamenco folk music was authentic but I wished there was more Flamenco dancing.

After reading the reviews on here I decided to book a table at Salvador and Amanda in Covent Garden. When I was booking a table I was only able to get one from 5.00 - 6.00. That was fine but I was worried that we would be too rushed, but it was not, there was no pressure from the staff... More

We booked dinner along with our theatre tickets and had no regrets. Great value at £25 for two which got us cheese, ham, olives and bread, a choice of 4 tapas dishes and pudding. Drinks were extra but not expensive. A great atmosphere and friendly staff. It could feel a little rushed but if you've got a show to go... More

Found this place by accident on a Friday Night and was lucky to get a table. Very lively atmosphere; not a place if you want a quiet meal but we loved it. Good selection of Tapas dishes which were all well cooked good quality. Only comment was that bread basket and oils were the last thing to be brought to... More

Food was good, drinks were good, great place to enjoy an evening with friends. However, ambience, not so much. By the end of the evening, the music got extremely loud and it was difficult to talk without shouting. Would I go back there - perhaps, but for a quick bite (the food was really quite good), and then get out.
