“Brilliant meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2014

I went with my girlfriend for a Valentine's meal. The food was really good; we had approx 8 tapas and they were all excellent. The service was also lovely and very friendly. Definitely recommended and I will be going again.

“Lovely again!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2013

Went last weekend with my partner and another couple. We have already been here in the past and yet again we weren't disappointed. Lovely food, lovely atmosphere. Service was really good and although we ended up being the last ones in the restaurant we weren't rushed in the slightest. Would highly recommend this restaurant for great food at great value.

“Mediocre offerings”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

Went with family for some drinks and tapas and was completely underwhelmed by the offering. There seems to be a system where you sit at the bar and enjoy some drinks while your orders are taken and you're only shown to the table when the food is ready. That is all well and good but the bar area is quite small, so it felt very cramped and uncomfortable when we were there. We ordered a selection of potato dishes, garlic bread, salad and meat dishes. The meatballs were nice as was the cheesy garlic bread but I wasn't very impressed with the other dishes - the garlic mayo which came with the fried potatoes tasted a bit off and the chicken dishes were just chunks of frozen/ unfresh and tasteless breast meat in different sauces. The desserts also looked shop bought rather than made by the 'chef'. Have definitely had better tapas at more reasonable prices, so won't be returning anytime soon, if ever! I must commend the waitress who was the only person waiting tables and yet she was friendly and efficient and it was never too long a wait for anything.

“Food and service excellent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2013

We meet up with friends a few times a year and love the atmosphere at El Sapo. The tapas is much tastier than the bigger restaurants and the Sangria fabulous. The service is so good and you are made to feel so welcome.

“Great service and food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2013

We absolutely love it here! The food is always great, sangria made to their secret recipe and service really friendly. They always remember who we are, even though we only get the chance to go every 2 or 3 months... It really feels like a home from home and a little bit of Spain at the end of our road.
