An absolutely wonderful evening. Despite having a full house, service was relaxed, friendly and polite. The food was excellent. I had creamed spinach, which was a light and delicious starter, then the fillet stake in a truffle and cream sauce and finished with pineapple in cointreau. We were in the restaurant for about two and a half hours and didn't... More

Had the fillet, chefs special as advised by our waiter. Cooked to perfection, wine was also very good. Was a busy night and we had everything on time. We will be going back to this fantastic chilled restaurant in the very near future. Excellent staff well done to you all.

This is a lovely restaurant. The waiter is very helpful and friendly. We ate here twice in a week. I particularly enjoyed the turbot in champagne sauce. Our friends enjoyed the paella. They make you feel very welcome and it gets very busy. There is plenty of choice. I would visit again if in the area.

We waited for the menus for almost an hour. For the starters we waited another 40min and for the food another 40min. The service was not good and very slow. Our starters were tasteless and bland. The main course was very, very over cooked and greasy and tasteless. We returned one of the meals.. They also tried to charge us... More

Dear Gitta, We're very sorry you were disappointed with the service and food during your recent meal at our restaurant. As we have already replied in the previous review written by another member of your party that evening, we were caught 'off guard' due to the fact that it was the 1st January and were not expecting so many customers....

Possibly the worst restaurant I have ever visited. The inexcusably poor service was bested only by the the terrible food and their inability to bill for the right things, ie. we were billed for food they did not serve us as they had ran out of it. The food we did order was not properly cooked and was extremely bland.... More

Very welcoming place with typical Spanish furniture and an open fire. Excellent service and food - I suggest you arrive with an empty stomach as the food is plentiful.

Méson Doña Lola was short of their waiter so sent us to Enrique's instead, only yards away. Had wonderful lunch (similar menu) in pleasant surroundings inside. Would highly recommend you try them both.

We've been coming to this restaurant for over 10 years and it was always our favourite, being one of the most genuine Spanish venues in the area and always offering good value for money. Not so, anymore. On our recent visit, we found the staff unwelcoming, brusque and inattentive. The change from the chorizo appetiser to cucumber and carrot sticks... More
