Reviewed May 19, 2013

This is my favourite restaurant of all time the staff are lovely and so good at their jobs, the food is just out of this world and so generous with portion size, the setting is fantastic whether your inside or out as inside in winter is so cosy and relaxing and outside in summer is so calm and beautiful. I have never been disappointed with anything its simply a stunning experience.xx

We visited this charming little restaurant with 4 other friends. What a find! The ambience, service, quality of food, service & value were excellent. Since it was a lovely warm evening, in early May, we opted to eat outside in the courtyard. This provided the perfect setting for our friends birthday celebrations. From the minute we arrived, the welcome & service was nothing short of warm, welcoming & professional. We ate from the wonderful set menu which was terrific value & had many choices. However, there was a wider selection of dishes available from the A La Carte menu should you desire. Wine menu was also excellent & very reasonably priced. We loved Santiago and will visit again next time we're in the area. Well done to the Staff. A quality, well run & welcoming restaurant offering great food & terrific service.

“Lovely restaurant - fab owners - great staff”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

Santiago is a charming experience - so much so that we went twice! The food was excellent and the pretty garden which is Moorish themed was a very relaxing and atmospheric environment to relax and watch the night sky. I really must praise the staff who remained friendly and relaxed despite being really busy - they clearly take customer service seriously and it shows. Sad that we're not around so frequently that we could be regulars, but will always come back when we are.

“Worth a visit.”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

Well it is lovely inside and there is a great atmosphere.
Feels a bit contrived portion wise in relation to the cost. Puddings portions very small in relation to the price.
But overall a very pleasant experience.

“A restaurant that continues to please.”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

When new friends ask me to take them to a "good" restaurant, this is the one that immediately comes to mind. Having eaten here (not as often as i would like!) many times over quite a few years I know it will not disappoint.
The menu is well thought out to cover most tastes and the wines list is tried and tested. No paint stripper here!!
Try the Sunday lunch with a choice of roasts or a vegetarian option. We love the scrummy giant yorkshire pudding with the choice of several meat or vegetable fillings and the chef does a lovely gravy!! A good choice of sweets adds to the joy.
The interior is cosy in the winter and the exterior courtyard so pretty and well lit for summer evenings.
Tony, Tim and their capable team always do us proud and I recommend this restaurant highly.
