I have eaten here on many occasions and the food is acceptable, a little on the pricey side for what it is. My daughter is a Spanish Scholar and so any chance to practice is most welcome. Not over impressed to be served by a (very nice) Polish man who couldn't pronounce the dishes! Having spent a lot of time... More

Although not authentic, I like the British concept of a Spanish tapas bar. And there are some good places to eat. Sadly, Al Andalus is not amongst that number. It's a bit tatty, and the food adequate at best.

The tapas are great (honey and goat's cheese, squid, spicy potatoes, etc) and more filling than you would think (which is always a good thing, when talking about tapas - 3 to 4 are enough for one hungry person!). The restaurant was very busy when we were there, and there was a very good flamenco dancer; I'm unsure whether this... More

Food & service were very good. Only issue was that we ordered soup & this came out with all the oher food which was a little odd.

We've been here a few times, and have always loved it, but it just seems to get better, and better. This time we went for lunch on Sunday 20th December, and it was far from busy - were people too busy doing Christmas shopping? I can think of no other reason why this real gem should not be busier.

We've been going from restaurant to restaurant looking for good places to eat here in the UK. As I'm sure most travellers will find, is that the food in general is horrible across the board. Finding good places to eat or even flavourful ingredients is like finding gold dust. Luckily al-andalus tapas restaurant was like an oasis in a ''food... More
