This place is a food lovers paradise. From the brilliant staff, the spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated interiors. But mainly the epic selection of delicious tapas. We shared 8 small plates between us, which was probably too much! We devoured everything! The Spanish girl that...served us was wonderful, and knew the menu too to bottom. The host, in particular, was so welcoming and professional too. Easily the best dining experience in all of Dublin.More

The food was fine and was well priced. It just didn’t blow me away. There was no one plate out of the 8 or so I tried that made me think - wow I would come back for that. It was acceptable and service was...fine, just not memorableMore

We visited Salamanca last weekend and although the food was decent, we were disappointed with the service, right after we were seated (after standing outside for than 5 mins) another couple were seated next to us. We ordered our drinks at the same time but...for some reason their food was on the table before we were even asked for our order, we had to hail the waitress. My husband asked could his phone be put behind the bar (Which they kindly obliged) but when we were leaving, the guy behind the bar dropped his Iphone, chipping it (My husband saw him do it) and when my husband pointed out he did it in a passive way, the guy brushed it off as if he shouldn’t have pointed it out to him. It wouldn’t have been an issue either way but it annoyed my husband that he was so passive about dropping a customers phone and didn’t apologise. The food was quite good but some portions were too small -the croquettes de Jamon were delicious but for 5euro I was surprised at the size of it. The place was packed and I felt a little uncomfortable about how many people but also was happy to see Ireland getting back to the way it was pre-covid. Staff were clearly run off their feet with a lot of people ordering small amounts of food but large amounts of alcohol.More

I just had some boiled rice with tomato juice and vegetables, which should have been a paella. Nothing to do with the Spanish paella.

Disappointing. we popped in at short notice on Sunday, which was nice. The options were not the most inspiring or diverse. The price was also very high for the items served.

Very tasty real Spanish tapas here, large portions too, with 4 tapas we had too much for 2 people. the paella was a bit bland in taste, could have been a bit more spicy. The rest was very tasty. Good price-quality.

We had the Iberian Ham, the ham croquettes and ham and cheese plate along with sangria which all were excellent! If you have never had Iberian Ham you are missing a real treat! The service was friendly and prompt. Strongly recommend!

Very impressed all round with this restaurant. The food was all beautifully cooked. Each dish was perfect. Excellent service delivered by attentive friendly staff. The decor is also worth a mention as it gives a real Spanish feel to the place. Excellent value for €....So glad we found this gem of a restaurant.More

We made a lunch reservation and arrived on time. We were greeted by a tall waiter who checked our Covid vaccination credentials before showing us to our seats. The decor inside is nice, it looks like many places you'd see in Spain. The menus were...a bit "busy" and can do with a revamp to lay out the information better but I found the drinks section and ordered, I had planned on getting a Spanish wine but I thought the wine was over priced so opted for a beer. I ordered a pint of Five Lamps as Spanish beer is possibly the worst on earth! There is a decent selection of tapas on the menu but I wanted a couple of the favourites that I usually choose in Spain. I ordered the gambas al ajillo which were nice but didn't have the garlic bite that you generally get with them in Spain, I thought they might have come with bread too as is always the case in Spain but not here unfortunately. I also ordered the large paella de marisco. It was served in a paella pan but not the flat ones you normally see, this had a much deeper base and smaller diameter. There is certainly enough in the serving for a main though and would do for two people sharing as a tapa. There was a decent amount of seafood at the top of the dish but when you dug into it it was just rice which got a bit stodgy to eat when the seafood was done. I wonder if that is the reason for the deeper base pan? On the flat pan the seafood is evenly spread across the pan and you likely get a larger portion of seafood. I finished off with a crema catalana which was tasty. So overall pretty good but a few small differences would have made it really good. I'd recommend looking at the wine pricing (the beer prices are in line with pubs in town but the wine was more expensive), a bit of bread for the sauce with the gambas al ajillo (and maybe a couple of more gambas) and a bit more generosity with the seafood portions in the paella. Service I should say was excellent throughout and the overall price for the meal was reasonable too.More
