Good Experience, Friendly Staff

Came here last night as a family group. I had never been to a Tapas restaurant before so didn't know what to expect. We opted for the £14.95 menu and it was great, we didn't know what we were getting but it was all very good. We weren't rushed and the whole experience was very good. Would... read more

Visited on a whim after hearing excellent reviews and we weren't disappointed! The waiter brought out a brilliant selection of delicious food and ensured we were comfortable and enjoying our food throughout. Can't recommend enough, definitely visit this place!

I'd not been in here for over a year but was invited back by my daughter who had a Groupon voucher for 4 people. After being seated the rude male waiter came over and said quite loudly that the voucher says 'new customers only' and that he recognised me from previously. He said it was ok this time but that...

Called in at random for a "treat", only to find a new "all you can eat" menu in place. Been here several times over the years, never disappointed. Excellent quality and value, staff superb. Lots of variety on the menu although we opted for the set all you can eat menu, a kind of Spanish surprise! All sorts turned up,... More

Really nice again came last year too. We just order the 15 quid all you can eat menu. They bring out dishes to share until your full. Serves spanish beers and vines. Nice freshly cooked food never have room for dessert although with the all you can eat you get it at 1/2 price coffee also!

We had an excellent time at Viva España. The service was impeccable and the waiter couldn't have been more helpful. The quality of the food is high and the portion size is great! I wouldn't hesitate to visit again.

We have been to this restaurant on a number of occasions over the years, so thought it would be great to celebrate New Years Eve here!! They offered a set menu, when we arrived we were told it was one of everything on the menu, all you could eat!! Alarm bells rang and we were right the food was of... More

We went mid week and had the £10.95, 3 course tapas menu. The waiter had suggested the £14.95 but we decided that might be too much due to the size of the portions and not being able to choose our dishes. (An asssortment would be brought to the table) Having had tapas on many occasions we were glad to have... More
