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.

I visited Thursday 17th July with a Groupon voucher, having done the same 18 months ago and really enjoying it. The waiter was friendly, sat us straight down and when bringing the food out, pushed another table so we weren't stuck for room with all of the dishes we had ordered. 5 of the 6 dishes were lovely (highly recommend...

My wife & I visited Viva Espana for the first time, the restaurant was cosy, staff were efficient & friendly, food was good, plenty of it & served quickly. The only disappointment was the cost of drinks, £4.55 for a pint of larger & over £2 for a bottle of Tonic Water which I personally think is taking the micky.... More

We were told Viva Espana was good and there was a deal on Groupon - £19 for six tapas, so we booked it. The table was cosy, the place was packed and the woman waiting on tables was really friendly and good at her job. The problem was the man doing Front of House, he was surly and would have... More

Excellent service by a very well mannered waiter, he even offered to rearrange the set up of our table to accommodate our new born daughter with an extra chair for her car seat. The drinks order was promptly taken and drinks arrived within minutes. The food was delicious and we ordered off the early bird menu which is excellent value... More

Beaten to it by a fellow diner but just had to add further comments. Our first visit was quite pleasant with a hiccup or two but overall ok and on the strength of this invited 2 other couples to join us. Apart from our table not being ready once seated we were kept waiting for both our food order and... More

This is the only word to describe last evening's experience. We had been before and had a really good time except for our table not being ready on arrival and being sent to the pub round the corner. . However, because we had enjoyed the food, we took a party of 8 last night. We arrived 10 minutes before our... More
