We visited on a packed Saturday evening for an 80th birthday celebration and certainly weren't disappointed.
Carlo and his staff made an enjoyable evening, extra special with their attentiveness, as nothing was too much trouble.
Good food and excellent wines usually form the basis of a good night but the little extras made it a night to remember particularly for the new octogenarian who had the 'best birthday ever'.

El Prado serves great food in a fantastic atmosphere. Spanish music to remind you of holiday time, and really friendly and welcoming staff. The only small problem is they only serve bottled water, but quality of food and atmosphere make up for that.

A party of nine went here lunchtime to celebrate birthdays. Food was good and all came together. Had to wait a bit though. 20 mins.

Good attentative waiters. Lunchtime 2 course good value at 9.95. Best to book as does get busy.

The only prob was we had a jacket spud that had a bit of mould on the bottom. This was pointed out sent back but they had run out.

Would go back as you select your food from the display in front of you and is cooked to your liking.

A group of us went here and we were shocked at the response we received from the manager when we said the calamari was too chewy. He cut it up at the table and told us that it wasn't chewy and walked off. We felt completely humiliated and he did this knowing neighbouring tables were watching. We asked for the bill straight away as we did not want to spend any more,only at the establishment. Overall, good food and decent service, just a few very, very rude staff spoilt our entire evening.

We decided to eat out one Friday evening and stopped at this place, living fairly close by. It was very busy and you have to chose your prepared meat or fish at the counter and add extras rather than order a specific meal. I cannot comment on the meat dishes as I am Pescatarian but to be fair, the monkfish I chose was delicious and beautifully cooked. However, for the cost, I was disappointed to get just chips and not very nice ones at that. We sat opposite each other on a very wide table and couldn't hear one another speak. It was a busy Friday evening however so maybe we woudn't have found the same mid week. Service was swift enough given that it was very busy but I wouldn't go again.
