As a regular visitor to Spain I think these are the best I have had in th UK and sometimes... More

We have been visiting El Castizo for a number of years now and always receive a warm welcome. We tend to order similar dishes from the main menu but usually find something on the varied and changing specials menu to try. Good selection of wine, beer and spirits. Staff are attentive and nothing is too much trouble. Only criticism is... More

Just had the most fantastic lunch at El Castizo - Paella with Spanish pasta! In my opinion, better than Italian pasta by far.

Went here for lunch after reading the reviews and are so pleased we made the effort to find it. Best Tapas we have eaten, even better than Tapas bars in Seville. We will definitely be back again.
