I wanted a Spanish experience for my partner's birthday as we are usually in Spain at this time of year, and this didnt disappoint! The food was great and the servers very friendly and helpful. My only complaint is I could have done with a cushion on the chair to raise me up a bit! Even my 84 year old sister in law was impressed. We will definitely be going back.

We have been to El Cafe many times & absolutely love it. We always have such a warm welcome from the staff & this visit was no different. We were pleasantly surprised to see a special on offer (of course we had to try it & it was delicious!) the food tasted slightly different than normal (in a better way…we didn’t think there was room for improvement, how wrong were we!?) only small changes, but wow the food tasted incredible!! When we finished, of course we were complimentary & it turns out there is a new chef. We had the absolute pleasure of meeting her & she was so humbled to hear our positive feedback. Of course we will be back, we love everything about El Cafe! Thank you for a fantastic night!

I have been to El Cafe several times. I have always had good service. This time my friend and I chose tapas that we had not had before and we think they were the best that we have ever had. The staff are always attentive and polite, I would recommend it, in fact I am returning next week with another friend.

As always the food was excellent with warm friendly service. Our Aunt and Uncle, visiting for get first time, said it was as good as the tapas they have in Spain. The chicken and chorizo paella was amazing.

We took our two young children last night and we all loved It. The chef and lovely boy who served us were both so accommodating and looked after us brilliantly....thank you to them both! The food was as delicious as always but felt the prices had increased substantially since our last visit. Looking forward to our next visit - minus the kids!!
