Have eaten in the Orford Saloon on a number of occasions and the food never disappoints - particularly if you like fish and seafood tapas. Is a little pricey but you get what you pay for I guess

My earlier reviews raved about (what was) a little gem! But after a recent visit, I have to say that the restaurant is not what it used to be. We were a party of four - and all of us had visited the restaurant MANY From the "off" it did not bode well. The service is unprofessional and very poor... More

This is my favourite local restaurant. Introduced my family to it's delights last week and they all loved it. Beautiful interiors, great service and most importantly such delicious food. The best tapas I have found in London. Going again this week with Spanish friends who always visit when they are in the area.

Hadn't been since the change in management so decided to give it a try for my husband's birthday. The menu has been cut down which is no bad thing and luckily our favourites are still on it! Food was as delicious as it's always been and can't fault it. However, service has really gone down hill and the waitress who... More

Having lived in Barcelona for five years, I was very happy to have found this fantastic tapas bar in E17. My partner and I have been there a number of times and enjoyed their tapas. We heard about the management change and went back recently. Suffice to say, the food is still fantastic and it has lovely welcoming staff. We... More

We had a family meal here on a Saturday night. Best to book over the weekends because it is so popular and now we know why! The food was excellent - really tasty and varied. Everything was cooked well. I think some of the dishes had been prepared earlier and heated as ordered but I would have expected that with... More
