It's a nice little restaurant, with a fairly Spanish feel, although some of the tables look a little bit cramped. We started by ordering a large jug of Sangria which was £14.50. I have to say, this was delicious, but it essentially tasted of fruit juice. The menu claimed it was 11 percent alcohol but I can say with confidence... More

I enjoyed two large tapas with perfect bread and tomato sauce for only £8.50. It was genuinely a complete lunch which I finished only because it was so very good. I selected marinated anchovies - delicious and there must have been about 25 large ones with lettuce, and also mushrooms which again came piled high. Absolutely delicious - I'll be... More

We were on a short break to Oxford and took shelter in this tapas bar when it started to rain heavily. We each ordered the two tapas and bread for £8 deal and added an extra tapas at £3.50. Meatballs, patatas bravas, chicken in pepper sauce, potato with ham & cheese and cod balls were all served in generous portions.... More

Big portions, delicious food. Avoid going without booking a table especially on the weekends as it is always full. Freshly made food, welcoming atmosphere. Lovely place!A must visit in Oxford ...

We had a dinner at this nice bar-restaurant. They do not have a huge menu for mains but serve fantastic tapas and paellas. As we were not fancy to have paellas (it takes 40 min for cooking), we took a short (5) tour through their tapas menu. :) No regrets at all. We got good and fresh food, nice wine... More

I have eaten in this restaurant few times now and the food has always been excellent! Do have to remember to book in advance on Friday and Saturday evenings. Patavas Bravas are the classic favorite and Pollo con crema y piquillos melts in the mouth! The staff are always friendly and service is fast. The only negatives are the desserts,... More

Whent there with some friends on a sunday night for a light meal and ended up over doing it big time. The menu is good and very comprehensive. The presentation is typical of a proper mid range genuine Spanish bar.very good value for the area but the one thing that did unfortunately stand out was the smell of the fryers... More

We have dined at Al-Andalus several times recently - it never disappoints and with a huge well judged range of tapas available there is always something new to try, That said we always order octopus (pulpo) cooked with potatoes and paprika in Galician style. The asparagus with bacon is memorably excellent as is the whitebait. The change of management around... More

Five of us visited as part of a works night out in Oxford. Great food, especially the Calamares. The highlight was the great value Muga Rioja and also finding Zoco Pacharan on the drinks menu. Service was good and the only negative was that it is fairly small so can get a little loud but that adds to the atmosphere... More

Lovely evening at this restaurant - great atmosphere, lovely staff and most importantly the food was excellent. I'm a vegetarian and my partner a big meat eater but we both had plenty to chose from and left very happy. Very reasonably priced, would definitely return to this restaurant on my next trip to Oxford.
