We visited on sat night and we had a great time. The restaurant was packed and had a lovely atmosphere. The food was good. I can reccomend the lamb which was amazing. However, there were some issues. We took the groupon deal for 12 tapas dishes for four people for £34. Having had tapas in lots of places, 3 dishes... More

The place was dead. As people who asked for no meat we were provided mainly with frozen goods that had been microwaved. Prawn after prawn was trotted out (about 3 on a plate). Each thing that came out was in the same tomato sauce. Do not be fooled by the all you can eat sign for 14.95 as we were... More

Small cosy Spanish restaurant , a hidden gem in Horwich. Lovely food with decent sized portions. Very impressed with £14.99 a head menu where they serve you food until you are full:) you can tell them what you like and you sit back and keep eating:))

If you want a little taste of Spain right here in Horwich, then this is the place to go. It is a little cramped, but such good value for money with authentic dishes, it is well worth a visit.

Visited here on viva espanas own deal of bread and alioli, choice of 6 tapas and a glass of wine each for two 27 quid. We had to wait a while between servings as it was very busy as it has been so many times before but it was worth the wait. Tuna salad, calamaris, lamb casserole, tiger prawns (the... More

Visited this local restaurant and had the 'early bird deal' which is any three dishes. I chose 3 and my wife chose a different 3 and, of course, we shared. I could not find a fault with the quality or quantity of the food but I would have been happier with a little more room on the table, will sit... More

We had the Amazon deal for 4 persons and were pleased with the quality of the food and level of service. We visited early evening, last tuesday and the restaurant was quieter than our previous visit which was on a Friday. The drinks were pricey but the atmosphere was very good. we will return.

The tapas portions are huge and always delicious. We love the alioli! Eat with an open mind and don't go there hoping for pie and chips.
