This restaurant is near my old college so we come here spasmodically for nostalgic reasons. But also because the food is very good. What could be nicer than a tapas lunch! The lunch deal is £7.95 for two dishes. The portions were generous and it was all delicious. I loved the patatas bravas and the cheese platter. Husband also loved... More

Visited on a Monday, early evening. A quaint, small (but lots of tables) tapas restaurant. Reasonably priced, tasty food and drink. Good value.Very good service.

It really is difficult to find better tapas and the value of the food, especially with the lunch deal, is outstanding. Particular favourites are the patatas bravas - they will ruin you for other patatas bravas, I promise - and the lentejas. There's a great range for vegetarian and gluten free diners, clearly marked on the menu. The only issue... More

The atmosphere was good, food was good but didn't like sitting so close to the toilet and it was a little bit cramped

I'm from Portugal but live not so far from the Spanish border. I go there regularly and I've been in all the main regions and cities. I think I know what's authentic Spanish food. I've had a few disappointments in so-called Spanish restaurants abroad, so I was a bit concerned stepping in at Al-Andalus. However, it proved to be an... More

We had 9 dishes, that arrived as they were cooked. The dates with bacon and blue cheese are my favourite but all the food is delicious and freshly cooked. It's a relaxing evening, the staff are friendly but not overbearing and leave you alone to chat and enjoy the food.

We shared five hot tapas dishes with good bread and house wine for lunch. Excellent food and friendly, efficient service at a very reasonable price. There is a good range of cold and hot tapas on the lunchtime menu. Highly recommended!

We had five plates for lunch. A couple were very good (chorizo with lentils, squid stew) but a couple of others were disappointing (very tired anchovies, overly seasoned croquettes). Good service and atmosphere.

I came here for the first time with some friends who were new to Oxford and we were thoroughly impressed with our experience. We ordered at least ten different dishes and all of them were excellent, not to mention genuinely reminiscent of the food I have enjoyed in Spain. Stand out dishes were the patatas bravas, the calamari and any... More

The title says it all really. Good prices, great selection of tapas especially for vegetarians. Very good sangria too. In summer there is a lovely garden out the back, and it feels like being on holiday!
