I went to Salvador and Amanda with a group of friends for dinner and loved every second. The food was top quality tapas, the service was good and the place was buzzing! I will definitely be going back for more!

Did not like the vibe of this restaurant, really gothic with the blood red furnishing and dark wood, felt like we were in a dingy dungeon rather than a spanish restuarant for a romantic night out. Tapas is great way to sample lots of delicious dishes but we were really disappointed with the itsy bitsy portions, even though we ordered... More

For tapas in London I have spent the last few years relying on Bar Gansa over in Camden, but for our anniversary my partner and I found ourselves in the West End before a show and in the mood for tapas. A quick search on TripAdvisor brought up this place, and seeing that it was happy hour we decided to... More

We booked a post matinee theatre meal here and we enjoyed what we had, and it was good value for money. We had starter of jamon and cheese with olives and bread, four substantial tapas, and a tasting dessert plate. We also had a bottle of Shiraz. It was all lovely, my only gripe being that they add 12.5% service... More

On a lovely sunny Friday evening in London when people were out drowning their Brexit sorrows in crowded pubs and bars, my wife and I had arranged to meet our daughter at Salvador and Amandas just off Leicester Square. We thought we'd get there early for Happy Hour (17.00 - 19.00) and so down into the cellar and gloom we... More

I've had tapas before but this is the first time I really enjoyed them. I went with a friend and I think we shared 5 tapas dishes between us which was plenty. We had a tastecard so everything was very responsible price wise! Great music, service and atmosphere too. Love this place! Would recommend the lamb & butternut, the croquettes... More

We booked a large table for about 15 of us for a friends birthday back in November and we had a really fun evening. The staff were very accommodating and the food was very good. As we were a large table we just ordered an array of different tapas enough for 15 people and bottles of white and red wine... More

I love this place!! We enjoyed bread to start with balsamic and oil. Just the right amount for two. Thereafter we enjoyed the pork belly with a crisp crackling. The black rice (squid ink) with seafood such as squid etc. The chorizo platter (looked like carpaccio). The potatoes served with pancetta and a small egg on top (in a mini... More

Delicious tapas, charming bar tenders and a secret haven of Spanish life. The food did not disappoint. All the classics you would want and suspect. Reminded me of my time in Granada.
