“Not quite Spanish”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

Lunch special was not great and hardly Spanish. My wife asked for some vegetarian nachos and she could hardly eat it. Not going back again.

“Not quite like in seville”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

As I expected, it wasn't as good as some of the great tapas I've had in Spain. Tortilla espanola wasn't great, bread good though. Spicy sausage nice but small. Works out quite expensive ordering a few tapas dishes

“Tapas at its best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

Lovely family run restaurant in the heart of Richmond. So much Tapas to choose from and very delicious. Excellent value, really spoilt for choice. Not tried the main meals, as the Tapas is just too tempting. An ideal lunch, before the theatre. Highly recommended and just outside the station.

“tapas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

plenty of choice and fast service - quiet during the day but busy at other times - 3 or 4 dishes each is plenty - enjoyed a couple of family meals there and everyone said they would come back

“I like it here for tappas and wine of an evening”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Apart from the fact you can fall out of the tube or station straight into don fernandos the atmosphere is good for couples or friends alike. The food is as Spanish as you will get in town, for Richmond it is farly priced usually about 80 quid for two with drinks and a good selection of food.
