“Dinner with Mom”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

Stopped off in Birmingham on a business trip and took locally based mom out for dinner.
A great buzz on a Tuesday night, probably helped by the fact that the late July weather has finally decided to play ball. Waiter was just attentive enough. Steak was slightly overdone but good nevertheless. Chips great. The tapas dishes were delicious and the gin and tonics excellent! The novel small sweetners were an excellent way to end the meal without over indulging!

“Tasty tapas and divine desserts - oh, and sangria!”
Reviewed July 17, 2013 via mobile

Ate here early in a hot July evening - when the al fresco table, with views over the canal turn, was most welcome.

Tapas was good - and although six dishes didn't look a lot when brought out, there was more than enough for two of us to eat. But the desserts were absolutely divine - and finished with superb coffee and liquers. One nice touch was the offer of non-alcoholic sangria by the jug, just what was needed on this occasion.

“Hot and tasty Tapas”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

Introduced a friend to Bar Estilo and the food and service blew them away. I've been there several times before - the food is always hot, tasty and prompt and there is always great customer service on offer.

Try the Churros for dessert - fab u lus!!!

“Our 1st time here and must say we come again...”
Reviewed July 14, 2013 via mobile

Decided to come to the Mail Box for a last lunch and decided on tapas bar. Very pleasant surroundings for a heat wave it was cool sitting in side. We all had something different for mains and puds and none of us were disappointed.
All severed promptly and service helpful and good.
Today was busy but you would not notice very intensive.
Would recommend to any body to try here.
Just wish we had this restaurant in our town

“Fantastic tapas!”
Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

We ate here for lunch. We had the tapas which was fantastic. Great range to choose from and it all came out quickly and cooked perfectly.
Would recommend the halloumi and chorizo skewers.
Great service, very attentive.
Nothing bad to say.
