Tapas on a Friday night

Thoroughly enjoyed tapas with a friend. We ordered 3 vegetarian dishes and a chicken paella to share. Felt the paella perhaps lacked flavour but other dishes were excellent. Spanish pudding with orange flavour was delicious. Relaxed atmosphere and no rush to leave.

Two words: overpriced and slow. The seats are crammed into the upstairs area, where you are almost shoulder to shoulder with strangers next to you. It's stuffy, the noise of the crowded room ricochets off the walls so you have to raise your voice yourself to be heard. You are looking at a minimum of £7 for a mediocre sandwich... More

Visited with my wife and two wee boys after an overnight in Aberdeen. Didn't want the usual fried breakfast so opted for Beautiful Mountain as been before. It's an untapped gem. The pancakes, bacon and maple syrup are brilliant. After waiting a little while the waitress (who I actually think is the owner) came over an apologised and informed us... More

This review concerns the downstairs sandwich shop. I have been coming to the beautiful mountain for a long time for their excellent sandwiches. My last visit was so good that I thought it deserved a 5 star review. The two young ladies behind the counter gave excellent service and answered all the questions I had regarding the food. They were... More

I'd been to Beautiful Mountain before for tapas in the evening and the food was lovely but service was pretty lacklustre, didn't stick out too much in my memory though. This time however will, for all the wrong reasons. Arrived on a Saturday around 2pm, the place was nicely busy but by no means heaving, yet we waited around 15... More

Food took quite a while to come and seemed to be not to be many staff on. The menu was interesting but open sandwich on various breads turned out to be a... More

Had lunch with friends on Wednesday. I ordered hot BLT, my friend had croque monsieur. The cafe was so quiet and only 2 tables were occupied. Food came 20 minutes later. My BLT was horrible, bacon was not cooked . I asked for white baguette but got brown ones. The baguette was soaked in mayo so it was soggy and... More
