Por favor! Not the paella.

So I went tonight after my friend insisted we I based on friends comments. The long and short. We ordered paella, grilled veg and fries. The grilled eggs and fries were great. Veggies were really flavoursome. The paella? Worst ever. I complained. The excellent bar guy was apologetic and 'talked to... read more

We didn't have a reservation, and were lucky to get a table behind the bar. We didn't have to wait for long for our food, which was nice. It was a nice pub meal.

Great mix of potential uses at this place - enjoy the front bar with a beer, kick back in the beer garden or enjoy a fantastic meal in the dining room. Service was friendly and knowledgable and the waiters looked after there patrons well. Service was quick and pretty much every dish we tried was excellent. Pretty well priced as... More

Consistently good food here and lovely wine. i enjoy the service as while they've been known to forget things or get an order slightly wrong - they fix it quickly with some Spanglish and a smile. Paella is a fav of my partners - so much so that i barely get to try anything else (as the minimum serve is... More

So, I'm still unclear what the Scottish connection is with this Spanish restaurant, bar and venue. However, it really doesn't matter. The food is world class - even Spanish foodies I know come here regularly to get an authentic taste of home. The drinks options are all covered and the staff are great. I have no idea why this place... More

Three friends and I dropped in for mid week dinner. The girl with whom we placed our orders was sour and probably over worked. Two of our meals had sauce orders, both of which were wrong when they arrived despite me confirming the order because she looked like she originally wasn't really listening. One side never arrived, despite telling one... More

Robert Burns Hotel has a special lunch time fare - porterhouse steak with salad and fries (plus a few other options), with a glass of wine for only $15! Yum! I have been there twice now (with my daughters and my mum and we all love the food) and will be returning on a regular basis. The waiting staff are... More

I've been here several times and I will come back. The food is really Spanish, all the starters are great and the paellas are amazing, my personal favourite "black rice or squid in paella" is just one of the best I had out of Spain. The service is really good and in summer you can enjoy at the terrace. Definitely... More
