Absolutely fantastic place to eat delicious, authentic tasting Spanish tapas. This place is a little gem. Service is very good. Couldn't fault it. Must try for anyone who loves tapas or wants to try it out.

The young lady who waited on us ,and indeed the whole restaurant was really very good , when we commented later that she was very busy ,she explained that her colleague who was due to work with her had called in sick and so she had...

Decided at the last minute to take our two teenage daughters out for a Friday evening meal and thought we would give Viva Espana a try (been a couple of years since we were last there). First thing to say was how quiet it was with just one couple already enjoying their meal when we arrived just before 7pm while... More

My partner and I visited here recently for the first time. The food was good, especially the garlic mushrooms. We've had better but the price was reasonable and service was friendly. When we arrived around 7pm on a Saturday a couple of tables were taken and it was quieter than expected but it soon filled up after half 7. What... More

Viva España is a truly amazing slice of Spanish food with a Murcia style right here in Horwich. Each visit the food just seems to get better and better. If you like your Spanish food full on in terms of flavour then there is nowhere better to go. The dishes that the owner Javier creates are an absolute taste explosion... More

We did a works do here, and there was a set price menu. Four hungry blokes, all with big appetites and we struggled. The food was very good quality but the value was fantastic. We ate almost everything off the menu, how they made any money I don't know. There was the usual, typical stuff, olives and manchego, but as... More

We went to Viva Espana as a party of 16 celebrating a 50th birthday. We were seated in the separate dining area upstairs which suited us fine, however it made catching the waiters eye to order drinks near impossible. We waited quite a while on numerous occasions for drinks to arrive once ordered. Food was warm and plentiful however I... More

We liked it but couple of dishes not fresh made we felt! We didn't go for the buffet but chose our own dishes and the fresh made ones of Mussels and Langoustines were delicious plus the big dish dishes of lamb, paella and chicken in beer were pretty good although chicken was processed! The ribs were shocking though, riddled with... More
