Great atmosphere, buzz and hunger satisfying tapas!

I was able to get a last minute reservation (and last table) on a busy Friday night! Dinner for 3 + bottle of house white was well worth the 20 euros+ split evenly. For a tapas restaurant, I was not disappointed by the size of the dishes. Some dishes, such as the paella, give the option of ordering... read more

We stopped off at Salamanca because our first choice restaurant was fully booked. They had a very broad selection of Tapas and as a group of 4 we tried many. Food and drink prices were reasonable and the wait staff was excellent.

Have eaten here a number of times for lunch and their lunch menu is great. Lunch for a tenner, where would you get it !! Salamanca is a lovely room, staff are attentive and credit to the kitchen, they change up the menu fairly regularly but the staples of chicken wings for starter or the pate are faves and the...

Starter: salmon pate - delicious Main: chorizo burger - rarely order a burger but glad I did as it was genuinely freshly made and full of wonderful flavours! Dessert: panna cotta - terrible! Tasted as though it had been sitting in a fridge, exposed to the... More

Popped in here in June 2015 during a break from work. I stumbled upon this restaurant and was impressed with their reasonable two course lunch special. The food was very good and the service was great. Neat restaurant and would recommend for a good value lunch or for anyone who loves tapas.

Great setting ,busy although early evening. We went for the early bird to pick three from a large choice of tapas and a glass of house wine €3. Food was delicious served promptly, staff were helpful and friendly. I will be back

we started off by ordering a pitcher of the strawberry basil sangria. It was a great choice! Delicious and fresh tasting. Shared multiple tapas including the patatas rellenas (great), paella (pretty tasty), patatas bravas (better at Market Bar), and chorizo in red wine sauce (not great-more oil than anything else). Good service.

A really nice place to have some tapas. Friendly staff, good food and wine for a good price. It is not a place for a quiet romantic evening.
