Food quality, in general, is very good. I ordered 5 tapas plus some olives, pieces of bread and jamon. Drinks- a bucket of beers 4 for only 10.00, and 1L sangria. They also accepting taste card, so final bill was 50% less. I asked a waitress to take 12.5% service off and I give it to her cash instead, as... More

Great atmosphere. Cellar restaurant so be prepared for stairs. Generous helpings. Flamenco was excellent. Staff seemed a bit distracted but were very pleasant.

Had a lovely evening a present from family. The food was good and generous portions. The floor show was fun and full of atmosphere. We will make a second visit soon with friends.

Visited for the tapas and Flamenco show on a Sunday - food was excellent and not rushed - good quality, drinks were inexpensive for London. Not sure if the Flamenco finished early due to the Tube strike but it wasn't on for long and could be longer to encourage people to buy more drinks etc. Enjoyable visit all in all!

We visited Salvador and Amanda as part of Groupon offer with other two couples. The atmosphere there was absolutely amazing...I liked the staff who were friendly and accepted us to move three times almost until we found the right place to watch the flamenco dance. The only one thing which I want to say is that being to an original... More

We ate at this restaurant as part of a theatre package deal so didn't know what to expect. We were very pleasantly surprised. We ate off a set menu but there was plenty to choose from and before our tapas was served we had plenty of olives, ham, cheese, bread with oil and balsamic vinegar. We had a set dessert... More

We were walking around the area and were intrigued by the small restaurant shop front and appetising menu. It was from here we were lead down stairs to the dinning area, and what a delight! The ambience and decor in here sets for a wonderful evening, the low lighting and separate seating areas creates a lovely space for anyone to... More

I also went to the restaurant 4 days before the party and guess what? I arrived there and they didn't have my table! The table... More
