“Great Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2014 via mobile

Ate here twice and was not disappointed. I had the nicest steak cooked and flavoured perfectly. My friend was a veggie and had the nicest veggie paella. The portions were massive. We chose to sit outside and there was blankets provided to combat the evening chill. Each of the staff were so lovely and the Chef came out to greet us and ensure everything was to our liking. The next visit we had fajitas one veggie one chicken and were offered more bread, all the sauces were explained. Free wi fi and complimentary baileys coffees topped off a great dining experience.

“Take a big appetite!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013

We made two visits to Mama Pino this trip, and the welcome and food were as good as ever. My delicious stroganoff could have fed two people easily! Himself's sole was pronounced delicious, and not so much of a challenge. Delicious entrecôte with onions and onions on our second visit was again a massive helping, beautifully cooked. I was only sorry that the Crepes Suzette were unavailable, but the Mama Pino Copa was grand.

“Doesn't deserve the praise it's received”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2013 via mobile

I had high hopes of this restaurant, but it turned out to be pretty mediocre. I speak fluent Spanish, and ordered a pasta puttanesca to share, followed by a solomillo de la casa (also to share). Needless to say (after a long wait) they arrived together. The putanesca sauce was pretty much "in a jar" and arrived at the same time as the solomillo. After we had sent it back, the new fillet was rather good, but came served in the same ghastly "gunge" - over-reduced, and crude. All in all, not a good meal - and you'll pay euros 15.50 for a euros 3.99 Sangre de Torre. The staff (to give them their credit) seemed pretty embarrassed by it all .Avoid!

“Very good food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2013

Now i'm going to be completely honest here and say yes this is really good food and the service is ok, the staff are very friendly BUT it is not as good as some of the other restaurants. If you really want excellent food and fantastic service try Cosi com sei. We did have a nice meal here but for us it didn't shine like some of the others.
