Walk In - Mid Afternoon Sunday. Four Adults. Friendly welcome with the offer of which area to dine. A bottle of wine, selection of Tapas, shared Paella all served by attentive server on an easy Sunday afternoon in Mailbox. I can't recall the total bill, however it must have been value for money otherwise I would have remembered! Nothing pretentious... More

I have been to this restaurant a few time before because the atmosphere is so lovely and the meals are reasonably priced. As a vegan I've usually had to ask for a dish to be specially adapted, but tonight when I mentioned that I was vegan, the waitress went to get me a vegan menu. I had the potato skins... More

We hadn't been to Bar Estilo for a while so decided to pop in there while we were in Birmingham yesterday. There are few better restaurants to sit in and gaze out over the rejuvenated canals (even in the rain!) and we had a very relaxing drink and lunch. Assorted breads with aioli and tapenade was a perfect little starter... More

They have a system in place where they ask you to leave your card with them, as security for any items you have, and give you a fob/key in return, when I asked for the bill they took the fob/key and returned my card, with the receipt, and without uttering a word, at this point you would think that they'd...

Cocktails was watery didn't taste like there was any alcohol At all. You don't even get a handful of fries in a big pot which is full of paper with chips at the top to look like there is loads. We paid £5 deposit each there was 19 of us but they made a big fuss saying there was 18... More

After having enjoyed dining here several times in the past, I was hoping for a decent lunch but unfortunately, I was sadly mistaken. When we entered, we we’re greeted by a pretty indifferent waitress and led to a suitable table. She wasn’t actively unpleasant but equally there wasn’t any thing much in the way of niceties. But still, I was... More

Very busy Saturday mid afternoon. Great late lunch with family. Plenty of vegetarian tapas options. Tortilla not very authentic and lacked flavour but was ok. Bread basket contained bread with lots of air / holes - bit nothingy. Rest was ok.
