“MUCHO GUSTO”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

I have eaten here a few times and sampled quite a few things from the tapas menu. The portions have always been healthy and food delicious. Perfect for snacks with drinks or a full dinner with friends. Staff are always friendly.

“Lovely Paella”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012 via mobile

Myself and my aunt recently visited Rio and took advantage of their £20 paella and bottle of wine for 2 deal. We started off with a jug of sangria which was very nice. We were advised our food could take up to half an hour as it is cooked fresh- this wasn't a problem as the sangria was flowing! Free bottle of Rioja was a good quality and when a couple of friends joined us when passing staff were happy for them to pull up a chair and provided another couple of glasses! All in all for a very nice paella (could of fed 3 easily!), jug of sangria and bottle of wine we paid £25. Will be back!
