Bit noisy and hard to hear your companions discussion but the food is good, service is a bit slow at times, bar staff tardy and food a bit slow too! Would recommend it just for the paella and the dessert but lacks a little something!

First of all, it took us a long time to be able to use our voucher. Everytime I rang I found the manager very difficult and was in fact very rude to me on the phone. When we arrived there was hardly anyone in the restaurant. The sangria was nice but not traditionally Spanish. I've travelled to spain more than... More

Try the authentic churros with hot chocolate dipping sauce for dessert, divine!! Worth booking and arriving early to avoid delays during your meal, as having been... More

Very ordinary,. Run like they just don't care. Poor food, poor value and arrogant distainful service. Waitresses have no training or knowledge of the industry they are in. Go over the road to The Store, its a real restaurant.

I have travelled a bit over the world, no major globetrotter, but Espana has to be the worst restaurant I have ever been to in all my eating experiences. The service, attitude of staff, food and ambience were all terrible, to the point where we left even though we had fully paid up front on a deal (Scoopon). The entre... More
