We had eaten at the Rio Brava previously about 4 years before...we had been disappointed then, but hoped that it might have improved. The starter - a shared platter was ok...pretty standard potato skins / deep fried mushrooms and lots of corn chips etc . For the main I went for a vegetarian enchilada - my husband had a vegetarian... More

I've been here several times and it was ok. This time my food was poor. Overcooked calamari. And the bbq sauce was full of vinegar. Sort it please.

We have visited many times since and The Rio Bravo is a long established restaurant with a good reputation, it's always very busy when we visit, . so it's definitely booking ahead. The food is regular Mexican fayre, offering fajitas, burritos etc. of average quality. When we went we asked for a variation to the advertised meal which the staff... More

On the spec decision to eat after work.We had no booking but were accommodated easily as it was early and the restaurant was almost empty. The waitress was pleasant and service was fine.The deco looks authentic. The combo platter as a starter was of average quality, the usual combination of nachos etc. My main course of enchiladas looked okay but... More

Arrived with no booking on Friday evening but they accommodated us with no problem. Staff very friendly and smiled! Food excellent tequila prawns and Can-Cun chicken. Wine also very good. Very reasonably priced and good service. Decor made you feel like being in Mexico.

I went here for my birthday not really knowing what to expect, the menu looked really nice so we thought we'd give it a try. We ordered a sharing platter to start with, which was the perfect size for the 3 of us. Our mains arrived quickly afterwards, the presentation of them all was lovely. I had the chicken burritos...

We visited this restaurant after being recommended to us by friends. It was awful, currently writing with a very sore tummy, as does my husband. Ordered cowboy combo- 13 quid for 2 ribs and 2 wings and nanchos hardly no meat on the bone and very dry. Ordered beef for main and husband ordered swordfish. Both arrived very dry, food... More

The service was appalling, the food was disgusting and the staff were utterly rude! Food tasted like Bleach, we didn't say anything until the end and when we did the waitress dismissed it without a care in the world. she then came back and said that the chef had tasted it and he said it was fine. we then begrudgingly...
