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.

Cool place with a great atmosphere. Good drinks deals and friendly staff. There was a decent selection of food, the quality of which was good but not amazing. The music was very loud, which we didn't mind - the sort of place you want to go to with friends rather than a family meal. visited Salvador & Amanda on 19 Aug 2017

Really enjoyed our tapas after show dinner. The only real issue was that one of our main tapas choices came at least 15 minutes after the other three were brought. I'm sure it was a kitchen issue. This is the only reason for the four starts instead of five. We enjoyed the food and ambiance very much! visited Salvador & Amanda on 16 Aug 2017

It was ok. Their set menu and happy hour are good offers, but the service was extremely slow. We were half way through our set menu after 2.5 hours of being at the restaurant. They then forgot a whole round of tapas until I had to speak to someone, so everything felt a little slow and unorganized. Some food was really tasty, others like the paella were really under-seasoned and overcooked. Some staff said five minutes until food, which actually took 30 to arrive. The vibe is good in there, but there is certainly some room for improvement. visited Salvador & Amanda on 16 Aug 2017

We were a party of 10 and the restaurant wasn't particularly busy at the time we were there (from 5pm), however, although the service was OK, it wasn't particularly attentive, or appeared very organised. We ended up with drinks we didn't order, or duplicates of drinks we did order. I had to leave early to ensure the next venue for our hen party was set up for our arrival, so I hate to think what we had been charged for that we maybe hadn't received. The food was nothing to really write home about and we had to have the set tapas menu due to us being a party of 10 or more, so I can only comment on the set menu. I wouldn't say it was worth £21.50 per head; it didn't wow any of us. Having said all that, the staff were friendly, but seemed overwhelmed with a party of 10, although personally, its not a particularly large party. I, unfortunately, wouldn't visit again....maybe I had higher expectations. visited Salvador & Amanda on 12 Aug 2017

Did not have a table with chairs, they sat us at a long table and backless bench. We asked to change and told No. Ordered a variety of tapas, when the pork ribs were served they were dry and rough. They did take the ribs off the bill. The flamingo show was close to an hour late and disappointing. visited Salvador & Amanda on 09 Aug 2017

We really like Salvador and Amanda and will return out of loyalty however we didn't have the best experience for our booking. We booked a meal for 15 people and got an email saying we would have our table from 7 - 9pm..we told more guests who weren't coming for dinner to arrive at 9pm for drinks. (We were celebrating our engagement) We hadn't even been served dessert until well after 9. Service of food was incredibly slow. We were also stood waiting at the entrance for ages as well as people waiting at the bar. One guest waited for 10 minutes to be served while the 1 barman cut lemons and limes, served other people before him or left the bar completely. The paella was undercooked and crunchy and served 2 hours after our first serving of tapas. The rest of the food was nice but overall the slow service which caused separation between the dinner guests and drinks guests tainted the evening - it also meant some people at dinner had to leave before the paella was even served. Considering how much money we spent and that it was a quiet Monday night..we expected better. visited Salvador & Amanda on 07 Aug 2017

The restaurant was good fun, good music and atmosphere and we had a great time however we had quite a few problems. We were put in a corner on a really awkwardly shaped table that barely fit all the guests. 2 of the seats were between a pole and the table so you couldn't physically fit in and we ended up squashing more people on the benches. The food when it came out was nice, however it was still being served at 11pm when our table was booked for 8pm.... and we were required to pre-order a week in advance. The manager was very nice when I flagged the delay to the food and provided us with complimentary tequila shots. Planning to go back as a 2 rather than a party of 14 and hopeful that we will have a great time :-D visited Salvador & Amanda on 05 Aug 2017

The girl with brown hair who was the host was quite rude. We had a booking and came on time there wasn't a table for us and we were okay waiting. We asked about the table she said "there's only this one" and shrugged her shoulders when we said if we could see the flamenco dancing from that table because we booked to see the dancing on Wednesday 2nd. She said "well that's just how it's going to be" and was very rude. The girl who served us didn't know what she was doing either, my mother ordered a glass of sangria and she brought us £11 1L of it and said you don't do sangria by glass, my mu asked why she didn't tell us this to begin with and she didn't know what to say. We had to pay for 1L or sangria in the end when she could have told us when we were ordering it drinks. I won't be coming back staff are incapable of doing their jobs. I work in customer service also and I would never treat my customers like this and always give them prices when something they ordered wasn't correct and not assume they will just pay £11!!! Good luck to anyone who goes there. visited Salvador & Amanda on 02 Aug 2017

I booked in advance for a group of 11, really good value for money on the group menu! The food was tasty but didn't arrive all together, the final plates of paella arriving 90 minutes after we sat down to eat! Service was really slow at the bar too. A lovely place with a good atmosphere but maybe not able to cope with large parties on a Saturday night! visited Salvador & Amanda on 15 Jul 2017

Good venue, good music. Booking an area was an easy and smooth process. Unfortunately, Staff and service was very very average. Upon arrival we had to ask multiple people about our £50 deposit before the 'manager' came over and asked what we wanted to do with it?!?! Bar tab eventually was set up. Bar staff were slow and rude at the best of times. visited Salvador & Amanda on 15 Jul 2017

Excellent food and atmosphere. Probably my best tapas place in London. If you are not sure what to order go for the Spanish black rice with seafood and will not be disappointed. Sangria is also a must. If you go between 5-9pm on a week day you can have 2L for £11. visited Salvador & Amanda on 12 Jul 2017

Had a lovely Birthday gathering on Saturday 8th July 2017 at Salvador & Amanda. From booking to the night, we were received and made to feel special by management and staff. We wanted for nothing, the table service was outstanding and all of my guests had an amazing time. I would recommend the venue for any type of gathering.

The decor is great - makes you feel like you're somewhere else entirely! Service was slow to begin with, even with the restaurant almost empty, but picked up once we ordered. Food wasn't that hot but I guess that happens with tapas - by the time you get to a dish, it's not so warm. Food was generally good and well presented with a good range to choose from. Red wine sangria was good. We got 50% off with a Tastecard which made it really reasonable; I think I might've been a bit disappointed if I had paid full price. Definitely some really great things there and I would recommend it overall. k1girl41 visited Salvador & Amanda on 04 Jul 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!

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

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.

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. Food was lovely and the flamenco was very good. Highly recommended this place, we all had a great time. visited Salvador & Amanda on 02 Apr 2017

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 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
