Description: Simply Tapas and Vinho has taken the locals by storm and has quickly established itself to be the place to be and the place to be seen in. After considerable research in Spain, chef has put his own slant on many well known and traditional favourites as well as other more adventurous and interesting fare. If you are with a large party the Chef's Table provides the perfect setting. Whilst there check out the wide selection of gourmet delicacies on sale as well as a great selection of fine wines at reasonable prices.

“Good night out”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

We had a great night. We ordered the chef's selection which was plenty for 4 and for pudd we had the double choc trifle, very nice. I'm sure even our Spanish visitors will check this place out.

“Great food! Great service!”
Reviewed July 12, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I visited here and we loved it. The menu was not vast, but there was still plenty of choice. We ordered 5 dishes between us but to be honest 4 would have been ample. The food was set out well on the plates etc and it was great. We even got an amuse bousche to start which took us by surprise. There was a great wine selection also to choose from.
The staff were really friendly and attentive.
We will definitely be back when we visit in August/September. Keep up the good work

Reviewed July 12, 2013

Took a group of friends 1st week 14 of us at the chef`s table ,great food and service by Spanish waiter, attention until we left

“Simply lovely”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Have been many times and never disappointed , great Tapas selection with daily specials. A welcoming team of staff who are very friendly and attentive without being overbearing. Good wine selection and a superb setting to sit and chill be it indoors or out. The beauty of Simply Tapas and Vinho is that you can order one or two dishes at a time and there is no pressure to eat up and move on. The ethos of this establishment is to " sit and chill" and this certainly works for us.

“Simply great!”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

We discovered this newly opened restaurant last year and it is simply great. We returned this year and it is consistently good. We returned this year to find that they had opened a new restaurant, just next door 50 metres away - SIMPLY FRANGO AND VINHO. Chicken done deliciously and served with a choice of sauces; piri-piri, curry etc all served on the side, with salads. The advantage of this over the usual Frangerias-chicken restaurants- is that is a comfortable restaurant where you can enjoy a nice night out and secondly the wine choice is better. Prices are reasonable so good place for the family too. Try it - you won't be disappointed
