The food is superb and there is always such a great atmosphere, the restaurant is quite small but the food certainly makes up for the relatively small seating area.
My girlfriend and I visit Tias every few months and it seems to get niccer and nicer.
Recommend the Calamari and the Chicken and sweetcorn enchiladas.
The one time the service was slow we got a free starter to compensate! Great stuff.

Three of us went to Tia's to celebrate a birthday. We sat in the window seat and thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere, choice of food and drinks. The starters were huge and the mains were vey tasty. Will be making a return visit.

Visited Tia's following good reviews ( as did the table opposite it turned out)
Really friendly and open waitress ( Lorraine?? - should have made a note sorry - short dark hair if that helps). Anyway she was hilarious and despite our advice that they have good feedback, is Trip Advisor phobic! No need!
Food was great but we over did the starter so struggled with the main but it was all sooo tasty. Refried beans weren't available but apparently they are done from scratch and take three hrs or so. I'd just expected a tinned version so huge kudos to the chef as clearly everything is properly created from scratch!
Wife had a couple of cocktails which were very well done - careful with the large iced margarita if you indulge, it' ll knock your socks off, lush!
We had a really good evening here and would recommend to anyone.
