I have eaten here a few times & each has been a lovely experience. Service & food great. Try the halloumi with date sauce & the aubergine with sugar molasses which melts in your mouth!

The food was fantastic and our Spanish waiter was lovely and very attentive. Excellent value for money. We aren't used to eating a three course meal so my only criticism would be that the pudding portion was too big, even for two people sharing. We had a lovely evening and will definitely be back.

We have visited on several occasions in the last few months and taken friends and relatives. We have had a great experience every time. On this occasion, although it was midweek, the restaurant was busy and the atmosphere was great. As always the service was excellent and the quality of the food was great. We will be back again soon and would highly recommend Tipi Tapa to anyone. I'm still looking forward to trying the Paella!

I’m not normally as Tapas fan but the food served was excellent and we had a great evening! Only suggestion would be to charge for food and drink together, rather than separately - different bills was just awkward.

Interesting one to review this as the welcome was poor (the website would only let us book for 5pm) as when we arrived they were clearly setting up but made no real effort to engage. The setting looked a bit "add on" to the hotel it is situated in so, again, not the best I've seen so didn't make for a great start. The food, however, was good and our waitress very attentive and amiable so did make for the desire to return again in the future which we will do. All in all I'd say it was an enjoyable evening.

1st visit and food was fab will definitely be going back again soon. We had our 2 boys with us who will eat everything and they asked for more again. For those with kids who are fussy it may be worth offering an alternative kids option. See you again soon

Food was amazing! Ate far too much. Choices were good which resulted in us ordering too much as we couldn't narrow it down to just a small amount of dishes. Only thing that was annoying was we were put next to the noisiest table of 4 men , as a 2 table would have preferred a 2 table in a corner but were put on a big 4 table so we couldn't hear each other talk! Otherwise fab! Will definitely come back.

Wonderful lunch at Tipi Tapa, the Moroccan lamb skewers were absolutely fantastic, as was the salmon, the tabuleh, the asparagus and the humus. The courtyard is gorgeous, service was impeccable. It was my second visit and it will not be my last! Thoroughly recommend it. If you haven’t been yet you are missing out! Thank you Dave, Nige, Simon and ladies for a wonderful afternoon. Ten out of ten!
