“Great place, but value for money more questionable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

We love Pix, and Saturday night was our 4th or 5th visit. It's always great fun, a real London buzz with a great mix of people (i.e. 'buzz' does not mean 'over 30s are out of place'!, and suitably non-touristy given its location. Always a good pre-theatre choice, as it's easy to time your departure.

The food is as good as ever, varied, creative, authentic. BUT, the prices seem to be creeping up, £110 for 4 people inc 2 drinks each.

“Great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

...and the house wine is really good as well! The tapas are very tempting I had the croquettes which transported you to Spain for a few minutes.

“Over priced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013 via mobile

Found choice very poor, expensive for what you got. Think I have been spoilt sampling tapas in Spain! Nine tapas and two soft drinks cost me £32. Did not have the variety to cater for all needs, fair Amount of fish and meat. Toilets were dirty and down stairs that were unsafe for disabled visitors.

“Return visit to the pix bar - beware of the surcharge”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

This was a return to the restaurant and bar with the rest of the family, whilst visiting London, the food was as good as the last time we came over a year ago, but we were pushed for time, we had a selection of bits from the front and a couple from a tray, freshly cooked.
However, I was annoyed by an optional service charge being added to our bill without my consent, which was only noticed later on on the train home.
The bar is basically a "self service" buffet
I don't mind giving a tip for good food and service, but I do object to paying an optional charge that appears to be COMPULSORY"! DO YOU WANT PEOPLE TO RETURN? May be it's a hang over from the Olympics for tourists

“Excellent tapas in London”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

We visited as a group on work outing, food was all excellent, seating not great as the place is small, more stools and a change to layout to maximize the available space would be a good idea, wine choice good. Will visit again no problem.
