i have been to many tapas restaurants and too many are below par or not authentic but Viva Espana is a cut above the rest. Had an Amazon Local voucher and was a bit dubious from previous experiences that it may not be value for money but oh no - full choice from menu, very generous portions and fabulous quality... More

This place is brilliant! Tiny little restaurant with no corporate feel, AT ALL! So much character in the restaurant which adds to the authenticity and the excellence of the place. Food is great. Compared with the common alternatives, Viva Espana wins every time - and wins on price too for that matter! Waiter was great, very knowledgable and hospitable. An... More

We went to Viva Espana this evening for our anniversary and had such a wonderful time! The food was great and the service was fantastic! It's a lovely, romantic cosy little restaurant just off the main street in Horwich. Will certainly be going back!

This review is overdue but well deserved. We were a diverse group of 8; vegetarians, carnivores and two people on medically restricted diets. We were seated quickly and drinks arrived promptly while we dithered over the menu. One of our number cannot eat gluten, dairy or eggs and was given a list of menu items with those she could safely... More

Went for dinner last night. The food was delicious and surprisingly economical. Portions were rather large for tapas - so possibly will not order quite so much next time but there will definitely be a next time!
