The food was fine, some dishes were very nice, we went mostly for the early bird (though it was not very inclusive). It was a bit expensive for what it was, considering portion size(small even for tapas). The service was very slow in spite of it being reasonably quiet. The staff seemed very busy but were certainly pleasant and helpful.... More

This turned out to be one of our favorite meals, oddly. We loved the variety of the menu and the food was delicious. The atmosphere was nice and cozy.

Myself and my other half had dinner here last week, we went for the early bird as there is a board on the door to say tapas 3.95 euro before 7pm, however be cautious when ordering as it's only tapas under 5.95 that come in at this price. We ordered the crostini which were nice but for 10 euro the... More

I enjoyed my food here, had the great hummus. The staff are super busy, but super nice, so if they don't bring everything as fast as you need it, just mention it again and it gets done. Patatas Bravas was tasty too. Just be cautious, the tortilla omelettes have a fair amount of potato in them too, so ordering Patatas... More

Excellent menu, loads of choice. Decent wine list. Excellent atmosphere. On busy nights service can be slower but that only gives more time to enjoy the wine and relaxed ambience. Booking essential on weekend nights!

Once again, my visit to the Grape Vine was great! Food, service and atmosphere - fantastic! The staff are very friendly & seen to know exactly when to visit your table - not too often but just enough. All the dishes we tried were lovely - it's got something for all tastes!

Nice spot with good food and a good variety of options on the menu. Wine a bit pricey but hopefully they will have a value option soon.

My girlfriend and I decided to give The Grapevine a try based on other Trip Advisor reviews and frankly, our expectations were surpassed. The food was freshly prepared, the service was excellent and the bill was very reasonable. As previously mentioned, the portion sizes are very ample and not in-line with the traditional tapas experience which is a welcome change!... More
