My boyfriend and I visited Salvador and Amanda before we went out for cocktails in London. We tried booking a week beforehand for Martin’s family however they wouldn’t allow under 12’s in there past a certain time.
When we arrived, we had to wait at the bottom of the stairs to be seated and hand sanitise etc. The interior decoration was beautiful! All dim lit and it had a real ‘Spanish’ vibe to it. The walls were all exposed brick and they were all covered with beautiful artwork – this made the meal even better as it felt so authentic.
The staff were very polite and quick to serve us. Initially, they put us on a small two seater table however, we asked to move to a booth. This wasn’t an issue at all for them and they moved us right away (I was very happy about the booth because I was able to take nicer photos!)
As it was a Spanish tapas restaurant, we ordered lots of different things from the menu which is below:
Even though the menu was small, there were so many different options to choose from. We ended up choosing the below options:
- Gambas Al Ajíllo
- Patatas Bravas
- Chorizo Magno
- Selección De Pan
- Croquetas Caseras De Jamón
- Calamares Fritos Con Alioli
- Albóndigas en Salsa de Tomate
I can honestly say, every single thing we ordered was absolutely delicious! The only thing I wasn’t a fan of were the prawns but that’s because I am a bit funny with prawns that aren’t fried, they’re not my most favourite.
We decided to order a couple of cocktails as well which were also delicious! We ended up arriving during happy hour (around 6:30) and I’m so glad that we did because our cocktails were DELICIOUS! The menu is below:
We ordered a couple of different cocktails, our choices are below:
- Raspberry and Elderflower Collins
Every cocktail that we tried tasted amazing! My favourite was the Raspberry and Elderflower one, it reminded me a little bit of the ‘Purple Rain’ that you get from Wetherspoons (or, if you’re unfamiliar with that, it tastes a little bit like the Palma violet sweets)
Overall, we had an amazing meal there, the interior decoration was beautiful, the staff were very tentative and polite and the food was insane! It is also in such a great location in Covent Garden so there’s lots of places to go for drinks afterwards! I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
