“Fantastic food, great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

My boyfriend and I, both big lovers of tapas, decided to go to Platillos for a Valentine's Day treat, and we were not disappointed. Although we arrived fifteen minutes earlier than our reservation, we were seated immediately. We ordered the set tapas menu (£18.50 each), which was both absolutely delicious (the pork belly in particular) and just the right amount of food.

After dinner, we headed downstairs to the bar and had a couple of cocktails. Despite being very busy, we were served in good time by a very pleasant and friendly barman and we very much enjoyed our cocktails.

Overall, we had a fantastic experience at Platillos, and I would recommend it to anyone.

Dear Bernice. I offer a sincere apology as it is clear that you did not receive the standard of service or experience that we intend to deliver. As we had been closed for two days for Christmas, and all of our food is prepared using fresh ingredients, we did find ourselves short of a number of items on the 27th. In order to improve our offering I would like to find out a little more about your visit if you are happy to provide. Please feel free to contact me on sheffield@platillos.co.uk

“Average food, not a place to linger.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

My wife and I chose this restaurant which is in a square of other European types, as it appeared to be slightly cheaper. We had a cocktail each before we went upstairs. Both were ok, but mine was a mojito but was made with dark rum which tasted odd.The restaurant wasn't busy on the Friday 4th Jan 8pm.The staff were nice and polite and our order was taken promptly, the lamb cordero didn't have much substance - no ratatouille of veg, just lentils in a sauce, although the lamb itself was tasty. My wife's hake was nice, though she did wonder if it was cooked through, as it was cold in the middle and we couldn't see properly as there was no lighting above us. She also had the sugared churros and chocolate sauce for dessert, and after having had the real thing in Menorca she was disappointed as they tasted awful. The menu indicates that Platillos specialise in "little plates", ie tapas, but have recently started serving mains. It seems that the concept of a main meal has not been grasped, as no accompaniments come with the dish, and no side orders are available on the menu. Overall, this was a disappointing meal, and was not cheap either.
