We were here for a family reunion and the food was excellent. The restaurant was very chic, and the service provided by Lucho was outstanding. We had a lot of different dietary requirements & his service was impeccable. We highly recommend it!

The 3rd time I’ve been here and it was always nice and fine cuisine but I guess change of owner, no more cocktails, food isn’t at the level it used to be, overpriced and long wait to get just a buratta salad .. people are...not rude or anything but just without much experience, it’s unfortunate as we liked the place, decoration is great! Bread and patates bravas are good! And don’t forget to visit the toilet, nice decoration . Overall… very disappointing .More

Sorry to hear that, Camille. There's no change of owner. We had some issues with cocktails and decided not to serve them anymore for a few months. Hope we can serve them again in a near future. Hope to see you soon.

The location was great and the decor was beautiful! The waitresses were kind and helpful. BUT the hostess was extremely rude to us and to the waitstaff (and kitchen staff from what we could see). The paella was probably the saltiest food that ever touched...my lips... it was not good.More

Food and vibe were excellent- we were looking for something stylish and quirky for my wife’s birthday- and this was perfect. A weekday evening that was busy, Lucho our waiter was lovely and attentive, service was exceptional- thank you !

It’s a while since we’ve been to Vaqueta and to say it’s better is no mean feat. The layout was the same but the staff were superb. This place runs like clockwork. All the staffe gelled with no panic but shear profession is. The food...was really good and a new dish, the sepia (cuttlefish) cooked in its ink was amazing. Wanted to try the hortacha desert but settled for cafe solo as was full. Will certainly be back and not such a great gap.More

This restaurant was very disappointing. Not the staffs fault as they are clearly understaffed, but management have a lot to answer for. But there was a long delay in taking our order, the food was expensive and very odd tasting - imagine a Spanish version...of an American diner. Over all a very disappointing experience given the beautiful decor inside which may allure many a restaurant goer.More

Had my birthday dinner at this restaurant, the food was extremely good, prices are quite high, but for the quality of food it’s more than worth it. The only thing I found strange is that alioli(homemade) is considered an extra. However it was the best...one I’ve tried in Spain so far. Our waiter Lucho, was great, he speaks Spanish or English to a great extent, provided us some with some great recommendations. In general everything was almost perfect, when it come to the bill ,we felt a bit ignored as it took awhile, but generally extremely satisfied and grateful to our server Lucho . Will definitely come back Thank you Generally would be 9,5-10More
