I went there with several friends for a birthday dinner on a mid-week night. The place was fairly empty, but we certainly didn't mind the personal service we got as a result. We had roughly four courses a piece (empanadas/platitos/steak/dessert) and several bottles of wine for £40 a head. The portions are small, but they're also quite inexpensive so it's a great opportunity to try several and pass them around the table. I'll definitely be returning to explore the rest of the menu.
I went there with my family a month ago and we had a great experience. I loved the small portions so that we could all share and try different things. The meat, as I was expecting, was delicious. I was blown away by the Quadril & mazamorra, £150g of rump steak with white corn cream &
fried mushroom ravioli for under £8!
Everything else was really well cooked, well seasoned and nicely presented and we enjoyed a very nice bottle of Malbec for about £25. I loved the cosy atmosphere and the friendliness of the staff. I highly recommend it!!
The meal we had was over £70 a head (Tapas and a bottle of wine between two) and I was left very hungry. Small portions and to be honest, lacking in flavour. the steak which should have been the star of the show was over-cooked and the cheapest bottle of wine started at £40 and was pretty average.
The service was beyond terrible. We were one of three tables on a mid-week night and it took them over a hour to take our order and even longer to take our money. The waitress was rude and we asked if we could pay as we had been waiting a while, she just shrugged her shoulders and walked in the other direction. I walked over to the bar to say we were unhappy in private and she wouldn't look at me. I asked her to remove the service and she refused. (still not looking at me). To be fair to her, she was left on her own at the end of the night, but no reason to be extremely rude and she really didn't have that much to deal with.
I left £140 lighter, offended and hungry.
