Description

Salvador and Amanda has been bringing cultural flavour and the fiesta of Spain to Leicester Square for over 12 years. Just a stone's throw away from Leicester Square tube station, you can unwind in stylish surroundings whilst enjoying classic tapas, sumptuous cocktails (and sangria) and vibrant music.

Broody, atmospheric and tonal, Salvador and Amanda has just the same amount of Spanish sass as it does romance. From rich leather booths and candlelit tables, to a bustling dancefloor and cool colours, Salvador and Amanda isn't sandy Spanish, it's more an amorous fiesta.

Salvador & Amanda is all about drinks, tapas and fiestas! If you want to experience genuine Spanish tapas with authentic ingredients then head to this restaurant and club where your tastebuds won't be disappointed. As well as wonderful food, they also have special nights on, including the hip-swinging Flamencana evenings on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Between Thursdays and Saturdays a DJ takes to the decks and the restaurant turns into a fun-time late night bar where you can dance the night away till the early hours of the morning.

Great atmosphere and friendly staff. The tapas were not value for money. Neither was the sangria, £19 for a bottle that tasted syrup. And no fruit in it!! I'm afraid I won't go back. visited Salvador & Amanda on 16 Jun 2017

Really fantastic evening. I had booked a 13 seat table for a event, the manager, the staff, could not of been more accommodating, without imposing either. They were in great spirits, really good service and created a really nice atmosphere. They handled some extra special requests perfectly (brought in a cake with flaming candles they sorted for me) everyone always had a drink - we weren't waiting for anything. Food was amazing, I've been before hence why I booked it for this function and it did not disappoint, everyone enjoyed it immensely and I know I'll be going back! Thank you for making a wonderful night! Thanks, Tom visited Salvador & Amanda on 26 May 2017

Service was significantly poorer towards the end of the meal. We had to ask 3 times for our drinks to be brought over and were left waiting for our bill for 20 minutes, having to remind the waitress to get it, but we're still charged the 12.5% service charge, which was poor. The food was good but not outstanding, the calamari in particular being soggy and rubbery. Portion size is good for tapas. Atmosphere is nice and the flamenco dancer was a nice touch, however she was only visible to 3 tables, the majority of diners were put in the back of the restaurant with no view of the dancer. visited Salvador & Amanda on 23 May 2017

We went to S&A to celebrate friend's hen night. We ordered a party menu £21.50, booked a table etc. The food was delicious, portions' size accordingly bigger - we did not eat it all!! The service was absolutely brilliant - nice, helpful, accommodating and professional. The booking's T&Cs say you can only have a table for the duration of 2 hours but the manager found an equally big and well presented seating area for us where we could have our deserts and stay until the end of the evening. It rally was a great night! Everyone had fantastic time thanks to a lovely team at Salvador & Amanda! Huge thanks to all working that night!! visited Salvador & Amanda on 13 May 2017

Booked a table for Saturday night as tapas was what we were looking for after a long day in London. What we didn't expect was the music and dancing from about 10pm.

The restaurant was unique and warm, The food was good. The only down side was that staff should be paying more attention to customers, I felt that it took me awhile to keep their eye. The cocktails contained far too much ice. Other than that it was excellent, the flamenco was a treat to watch. We enjoyed the evening. visited Salvador & Amanda on 02 May 2017

Fantastic experience and event - Maria was great at organising the right options for us and getting everything ordered and planned in advance. Francisco and the team on the night were great, really flexible and the food was a really high quality. We've already had a lot of the guests saying how much they liked the food and venue. Great value for money and we'll think about returning at some point in the future. visited Salvador & Amanda on 25 Apr 2017

I had booked a meal for my sisters Hen Party well in advance and over email they were very accommodating and very helpful when I advised we had a group member with a nut allergy, I asked them to advise if any of the options I had chosen were unsuitable, to which they replied no (only one in the starter and 2 in the desserts - which were not optional). But when the food arrived I was advised 2 of the 7 options we had chosen were not suitable. One waitress who brought out one of the tapas trees butted in between 2 of the group members and very rudely said 'well make some room!' to which we all looked astonished. Having worked in a busy restaurant I would never expect diners to clear room - if they do its obviously a welcome gesture but they are not required to rearrange the pre-laid table so the food can be placed down. We were then brought someone else's food and I advised this wasn't for us the waiter headed back to the kitchen to check then removed the food. After we had the first 6 options we were still waiting for paella (our last option) to arrive, I checked with a waiter who seemed slightly confused and advised it would be 5 minutes, 5 minutes came and went and I struggled to get anyone's attention, when someone finally came to our table 15 minutes later I again advised we were waiting for our last option and again this waiter advised 5 minutes, at this point it was 11pm and we were booked to head on to another place. This waiter also looked confused as if to say whats the problem, so I advised I was not happy we had waited so long and we no longer wanted the paella or the desserts just to bring the bill. The bill came and the waiter ran over a few minutes later to advise they would deduct money. The money they were going to deduct barley covered the service charge. I advised I would not be paying the service charge and accept the deduction as the service was appalling. The food was good and very filling, but unfortunately this was let down by the service offered. The sangria was really good as well. visited Salvador & Amanda on 22 Apr 2017

Cocktails during happy sounded great at 2 for £10 until you realize there is almost zero alcohol in them! Food was average and (hot food) arrived cold. Taste card use was easy and we saved £50 on the bill taking it from £130 down to £80. Music was not to my taste (rampant house) but I am a 50 yr bloke :-). Ok but not great could easily be so much better. visited Salvador & Amanda on 13 Apr 2017

We went for the Sunday flamenco show. Although it looked a bit tatty from the outside, you go down into an intimate, candlelit venue that feels really Spanish.

Salvador and Amanda was a fantastic venue for our press night after party. We had opened a show at the Arts Theatre next door, and the staff at the party venue were so easy to deal with and helpful when I was arranging food and drink for a large amount of high profile people. Everything was set up and matched what I had asked for when we arrived, and the staff were incredibly efficient on the night (we had a lot of guests!) Great wine, great staff, great venue- what more could you ask for? Many thanks to all the team. visited Salvador & Amanda on 27 Mar 2017

Sat in one of the front seats with very hot, strong air blown on me so asked to move which was no hassle, just embarrassing having to ask. Waited 20 minutes for someone to bring a menu to us but it was fine as we were enjoying chatting. Fun atmosphere, lovely staff and great food. The young bar man made a lovely comment to me saying that me and me girlfriend made a cute couple which was sweet as I am sometimes nervous in public that we may experience some form of homophobia. So, thank you again to all the lovely staff - you made my night. Really sweet waiters serving us too. visited Salvador & Amanda on 21 Mar 2017

Booked a table 4 weeks in advanced and got there and our table was taken so they gave us a seating area with restricted view to the flamenco very unhappy as it was 2 birthday parties and paid a lot of money for a poor experience wouldn't recommend it to anyone if you want authentic Spanish cuisine and entertainment you have El Centro gallego and other options visited Salvador & Amanda on 26 Feb 2017

Very disappointed with our meal here. Three of us had booked in advanced but were told to sit on a bench designed for 2 people, despite the fact that there were lots of empty tables the whole time we were there. When the food came it was only just warm and very mediocre. Staff seemed to have nothing to do, and came and cleared our table when we were still eating which was so rude. We were never offered extra drinks and made to feel like an inconvenience from start to finish. I told the waitress all this and said we were not happy to pay any tips on our bill. I wish I had made more of a fuss but as it was a birthday meal I didn't want to make too big a deal. Definitely would not recommend to anybody. visited Salvador & Amanda on 25 Feb 2017

The host was not very helpful or welcoming - a small, dark haired, 27-35 year old man. We waited 15 minutes to be sat down when there were pleanty of tables available, just not set. Other couples were seated upon arrival before us. Only after we asked a waiter what was happening about our reservation were we sat down an additional 5 minutes later. Despite this initial first impression we thought the waiting staff were lovely and the food was delicious. Would hope to receive higher standards of service from front of house staff upon our next visit. visited Salvador & Amanda on 23 Feb 2017

Maria was very helpful when it came down to knowing the allergies and dietary requirements on the menu. For this party, there were at least five dietary requirements and some were highly sensitive to gluten. I made a visit to the restaurant a week before the event to meet the chef and clarify the importance of the dietary requirements. This meeting was arranged by Maria but when I arrived the Chef wasn’t there, which I wasn’t too pleased with since I had travelled from University especially for this. Instead, I spoke to Fran and Carlos. I stressed the importance of the dietary requirements to them and that the party will be arriving at 8 pm and will stay until late. I was very happy with how the gentlemen handled the situation. The day before the event, I received an email from Maria saying that the booking was only from 7-9pm. This annoyed me due to the fact that I had confirmed over the phone and personally at the restaurant regarding our plans and the guests at this point had been notified to arrive for 8 pm. An agreement was made between Maria and a personal friend of mine that we will arrive at 8 pm and will have seats and drinks by the bar and then be seated at 9 pm for food. We arrived at the restaurant and were greeted nicely. As we got there we were told to go stand by the bar and order a drink. The friend who had called the day before was not happy with that arrangement since something else over the phone. After some discussion, the original plan that I had agreed upon the previous week with both Carlos and Fran, was the one that the restaurant had prepared for. I personally do not understand how the arrangements could have been muddled up. It caused heated conversations and upset for no reason. Overall, I was happy that it all worked out as planned but communication must be improved for errors like this cannot occur again to any party. Other than that, the food was delicious and came out quickly. A good idea would have been to have labels on cocktail sticks in each dish so that there was no confusion. Especially with the allergies. Louri, the waitress, was extremely helpful and attentive. She helped as much as possible to make sure everyone got the right dishes as they were coming out. The party as a whole, were really happy with the quality of service and the friendliness of the staff! It would have been even better if the music was more Latin/flamenco inspired. I would really want to express my gratitude towards the staff at S&A - Covent Garden. They really helped me with hosting the event ensuring that my best friend had the hen-do that she will never forget. Thank you to all the staff mentioned in the review and apologise for its length. visited Salvador & Amanda on 18 Feb 2017

The restaurant is quite deceiving from the outside. Looks quite small but once you go downstairs it opens up into a lovely spacious restaurant. Atmosphere was great, food was really good and staff were lovely. I'd recommend if you love tapas. visited Salvador & Amanda on 16 Feb 2017

Yo creo que no hay necesidad de no dar comida. Compramos 5 tapas entre dos, y morí de hambre. Una tapa 8,5 y no te llega a ensuciar los dientes. No creo que puedan poner un poco más de comida. La atención y el lugar excelente! Pero no es bueno para ir a comer. visited Salvador & Amanda on 17 Feb 2017

The food and armosphia were great but the service was lacking. It seemed really disorganised. The waiting staff did not know what was in the set menu (we had to tell them). The booking confirmation stated that we had the table until 9pm but at 8.45 we were still waiting for our main course - which we had to skip because we had an reservation some else at 9pm! A god place for a laid back dinner but communication with customers needs to be improved. visited Salvador & Amanda on 14 Feb 2017

Perfect location in the heart of Central London. A quirky restaurant with a great vibe and ambiance (although a little too dark to read the menu where we were!). The cocktails and food were great but the whole experience was let down by very poor service from the staff. Ladies, be careful in the toilets because the latches don't hold the doors closed if someone pushes from the outside! Phillippa visited Salvador & Amanda on 27 Jan 2017

Very bad experience! I will not repeat! We booked a table for 15 and we got there they gave our table to someone else. They asked us to stay in two different tables...for a birthday party I think was a very cleaver idea, don't you think? Tapas weren't good, the calamari were cold... Also they told us paella would be enough for 4, of course it wasn't and when we request an extra paella they told us that would take 30 mnts and was already late..... Plus they didn't Know who had kept our birthday cake. They didn't offer a bottle of champgane or a shot.... They say they are the perfect place for group parties, I am still waiting to find that perfect bit.... visited Salvador & Amanda on 28 Jan 2017

Great night, good atmosphere, food and drinks, good music on a Flamenco show night. The only small let down is had to chase waitress/waiter for orders from time to time, place was quite busy and we had a large team, so for busy nights would welcome more staff available to help the diners.The other small notice is about the restrooms, they are way too small - had to squeeze through doors, would suggest to have 2 instead of 3 cubicles in the ladies, to have a little more space.Overall we had a great night, and sure will visit again. visited Salvador & Amanda on 24 Jan 2017

Absolutely appalling; a Spanish tapas bar that didn't know what sherry was and by the time they were arguing what the question i asked meant we decided to leave; no drinks, no food no anything not even a good buy; ran across the road to Barrafina ...the real thing andnot any more expensive... visited Salvador & Amanda on 18 Jan 2017

Have been going to Salvador & Amanda for years. The bonus this time around was I had a Tastecard. 3 of us ate and had plenty of alcohol and the bill with service was less than £20 per head. We asked our waitress for recommendations for the food and it did not disappoint. Good service, good food, good value and a great atmosphere. visited Salvador & Amanda on 18 Jan 2017

I have chosen this place to celebrate my birthday because I used to come here often and it seemed like a very nice place. But unfortunately with this occasion was not the same. I reserved a table for 20 people but when I got there I had to wait with my guests for 20 min because the table was occupied by others because there was no reserved sign on the table so they refused to leave. After all this I was shocked seeing the table which was for maximum of 10 people. When I asked the staff they said that was the only table left but when I told them i've booked a table for 20 they told me that was the table. Unbelievable! I asked them at least to bring us more chairs...which they did,but after an hour or so they came and removed them without saying a word. I went to order some food and drinks but 2 staff started to argue in front of me in their language (spanish). The guy that was serving us got angry and left leave us with his colleague who was making faces. I was not happy at all to pay £20 service charge for that kind of service where I had to witness an argument between the staff and using their own language. A friend of mine have asked them to use English but they just ignored us. It was a really bad experience in a very important day for me! visited Salvador & Amanda on 13 Jan 2017

Worst service ever! Even if we had a booking, we waited 40 min before getting installed. Then, we waited an additional 40 min before the waitress took our order (I had to chase them and ask for someone to bring us the menu). Food was cold, and they forgot to bring us one tapas dish. Waiters seem lost and overwhelmed by the workload. Very disappointing experience!! Reda visited Salvador & Amanda on 14 Jan 2017

Normally I really enjoy this bar, but my last visit was poor. I booked a drinks table for a group of approximately 10 on a Thursday night. The drinks were slow and inconsistent. I think one bar staff might have been on his first shift, but the rest of the staff were just a slow and needed help from their manager to make cocktails. Members of the party would order the same cocktail and they would end up tasting completely different. I ordered 2 cocktails, at an empty bar, which took 10 minutes to make and a couple of trips to the stock room. The bar shut at 1am despite the website saying it was open until 2am visited Salvador & Amanda on 05 Jan 2017

We were there for the NYE 's party. The food was very good and plenty. The stuff friendly and quick with the order, but not too much. Just as it should be for a long dinner/party night. However we didn't manage to get a glimpse of the flamenco dance. All dining tables were hidden behind walls and only the people there for an early drink could actually see the live performance. Really a pity and a waste. As that's why we selected this restaurant over all others. The dj after-party was nothing special. Pop house music from the last 20 yrs. All in all, I d definitely go back to enjoy some classic andalusian dishes , but not for a special night. Despoina visited Salvador & Amanda on 31 Dec 2016

Had the pre theatre menu , although service was very attentive , bit slow about bringing the cheese out , so a bit rushed between courses. Nice atmosphere , loved the Spanish music. Beer was a bit pricey, shame no discount in happy hour ( only one of us drinking it). Had the prawns as an extra , portion was pretty small. visited Salvador & Amanda on 30 Dec 2016

Thank you for having us. We had a great time. Food was delicious! And so was the wine. Good value for money. Atmosphere/lighting was perfect, great choice for a Christmas Party! The only reason why you are not getting 5 stars and our only negative comment would be that when the crowd is having fun and starting to relax and dance, we found the DJ incredibly rude! I normally don't complain, but it was the main talking point this morning, she was rude to almost every member of my team including myself, when requesting a song. It was unnecessary and unacceptable behaviour, but it did not ruin our fantastic night with you guys, thanks for having us! visited Salvador & Amanda on 17 Dec 2016

Great food and atmosphere. Only issue was that we were moved off our table before dessert (fair enough we knew we had until 7) but then those tables were not full for the next few hours so we could have stayed until a customer came. Julia visited Salvador & Amanda on 17 Dec 2016

The staff in the beginning of the night and behind the bar were really friendly but the staff later on the night was really rude and a bit aggressive. We were a big group that was paying separately and the lady was really aggressive in getting the payments straight away once she gave us the bill without giving us time to calculate our shares. visited Salvador & Amanda on 07 Dec 2016

Thank dou so much having us on the 10th of December. The food was delicious, only suggestion for next time we might ask to get the starters and main food all mixed and served together in one time. We were very late from the food and you could have us a table until the closing time. It was highly appraciated. We had a fantastic night at your Covent Garden venue, very patience and helpful staff.

We booked for 13 people and ordered 7 platters from the festive menu. How disappointed we all were with the food! Actually the food wasn't too bad but the quantity would have been ok if we were 3 or 4 people! Three plates of bread with 6 small slices, 3 bowls of olives, 3 platters of cold meat, 3 small bowl portions of patatas bravas, chorizo, mushrooms. 4 pieces of salmon, 3 small plates of chicken, 4 small bowls of prawns, grilled veg. Finally for dessert.... the most ridiculously small slices of cake the width of my finger and a chocolate brownies the size of a chicken stock cube! What a let down! Atmosphere was great though and the drinks were good! ☹️👎 visited Salvador & Amanda on 03 Dec 2016

Music was great and it was the perfect place for what I was looking for in terms of a drinking and dancing venue. I was, however, disappointed when a bouncer showed a large group to our reserved table who then sat there whilst our bags and drinks were still there - we were dancing right next to the table and had reserved it for the whole night. I spoke to a waitress about it and she ignored me. Then I spoke to the person who was in charge of the bookings - he said he would deal with it but didn't. If bouncers are going to show people to a table they need to confirm it is free first! Jess visited Salvador & Amanda on 26 Nov 2016

Lovely venue and food was nice. Wasn't quite expecting to be on the edge of the dance floor so it was a bit louder than expected. We ordered the party menu and it came out at various stages throughout the evening so was definitely a grazing meal. I think they forgot about our puddings but did eventually serve cake and candles for our birthday boy. visited Salvador & Amanda on 26 Nov 2016
