Salvador and Amanda reviews



By Nick G.

Just had fantastic tapas lunch hear, make sure you ask for the squid, lollipops & Salmon on a bed of lentils, hmm wish I could attached the photo!


By Walter W.

I am the biggest tapas skeptic going as I like to think of myself as a bit of a Spanish Adonis, haha! But they've pretty much nailed it a Salvador and Amanda, especially with a fun, party vibe that feels very authentic. Superrrr bien!


By Bryan T.

Great range of drinks and cocktails here, and a great atmosphere to boot. I’d say, if you were looking for something a bit different and more elegant than your usual pub or bar, then try here.


By Chacka A.

Had a fantastic burger here the other day, my friends feasted on their legendary tapas. Everyone had a good experience all round so we’ll probably be back soon!


By Russell B.

Went on a Friday night and have now found a real gem of a venue that offers an amazing venue to drink when the sun is shining with it's collective funky music!! It also offers tapas which are small but delicious plates that complement a night on the drink!! Try the chorizo lollipops washed down with a jug of sangria...will be back!


By Terry J.

Love this place. Really lively, with plenty of activities and events that take place regularly. Wide range of food and far better than your usual pub grub. Really good atmosphere and friendly staff with a good layout and nice interior.


By Howard S.

I've stopped this place several time for late lunch meetings, and the tapas is very much a star, make sure you have the lollipop tapas, a star in its own rights! Not sure what this was before, but Salvador is a much needed addition to Bloomsbury, new favourite!


By Anisha P.

I booked the VIP drinks area for a birthday party on a Saturday night. The events manager was unbelievably helpful in advance, helping me pick menu choices, replying to emails and questions straight away. On the night the VIP drinks area worked perfectly for my party, sangria was flowing, and the food came out on time and was delicious. The DJ played some really great tunes from around 10pm onwards, and kept us dancing until nearly 2am! The only fault is that our waitress was grumpy and didn't serve with a smile. Still, overall well done Salvador and Amanda.


By Skye M.

A friend of mine booked the venue for her party, and they cancelled it at the last minute, because they did not like the music she wanted to play at her birthday party! Thanks for ruining a birthday Salvador and Amanda! Thumbs down!


By Masumi S.

Working in Bloomsbury, this is our favourite venue for afterwork drinks, after parties or anything else we can think up as an excuse to go out and especially the DJ nights! I tried the Friday nights not the Saturdays.. yet!


By Claire K.

Love the tapas here. They serve a great range of food and drinks, perfect for a nice snacky-drinky time with a group of friends, will be coming here again.


By Maggie Y.

Really enjoyed my time here the other day. Went to meet some friends here for the first time. It’s a regular place for them, but I’d never been along before. We had a great time! The food is great, the atmosphere is great – and there are even VIP booths that are a bit more private and look super swish.


By Ierena O.

I visited here the other night and it’s an alright place. The tapas is quite nice, but I don’t really think its anything particularly special


By Les D.

This place serves excellent Spanish food and has a great range of cocktails on the menu. Have been here a few times without any complaint.

I really like the elegant décor combined with great food and drinks on offer. Not often you see a pub serving good quality tapas, that’s for sure!


By Sandy S.

Salvador and Amanda's my favourite after work stop off, what else would you want!! I get amazing cocktails and scrummy tapas x If you have not given it a go then add it to your list of must try venues!


By Ebony F.

Went here for an intimate night out, and we were wonderfully treated to a semi-private dining area upstairs where we had some great Spanish food, and we had some great cocktails to accompany it. Very much worth a re-visit!


By Jord B.

Great pub to chill out in. They serve tapas which is great to snack on while you’re drinking. Really chilled out atmosphere. Very much recommend to anyone in the area.


By Laura F.

Booked a couple of tables here for my birthday last minute and staff were really accommodating making a lot of effort to fit me in and make sure we were all having a good time. Perfect place for a few chilled out drinks at first then the party gets going about 7 or 8 with a DJ! Nice decor, great location, good music and reasonably priced drinks. Would definitely recommend and visit again.


By Gazza I.

Went here for a chilled out time with some mates, but it wasn’t what I was expecting. It is a nice venue, don’t get me wrong, but not really the hip and happening bar I was hoping for. I guess I wanted more of a relaxed pub environment, but nothing wrong with the place otherwise.


By Rich W.

Went to Salvador and Amanda for my girlfriend's birthday and had a fantastic evening. We were a large group and the staff looked after us brilliantly. A great post-work atmosphere then became a buzzing evening venue. The sangria is delicious and the service excellent. Will definitely be going back soon! Thanks for a great night.


By George D.

Great service, delicious tapas, good wine. Went on Friday night, buzzing atmosphere and was pleasantly surprised by the relaxed crowd. I noticed view recommends 2-3 dishes per person but I would say 3-4 per person is more realistic and to be honest your not going to want to stop. Hats off to a great venue.


By Lucy A.

Been to many places in Bloomsbury and this pub is surely my fave. They serve a nice range of cocktails here too.


By Emma H.

Salvador and Amanda is a great fusion of tapas and cocktails set in laid-back yet elegant surroundings.

The Venue
Set in the heart of Bloomsbury, Tottenham Court Road and Holborn stations are only a 10-minute walk away in either direction. It’s a hard place to miss, with a red neon sign above the double doors and flame torches welcoming you into a warm, vibrant atmosphere. The ground floor is where the party people are, either sitting on high chairs around tables or booths around the side. The décor is predominantly red and the furniture dark, which makes for an intimate affair. Wide stairs lead to the first floor where half of the space is for people drinking by the bar and half is for restaurant diners. The tables, which are big enough to fit a good spread of tapas - are to the far end of the room and here you feel a more rustic approach has been taken.

The Atmosphere
Friday nights seem to be quite busy, but not to the point of squashing frequenters into the corner. The venue has a buzz about it, which comes with the exhilaration of finding a new haunt. Customers are upbeat and friendly, as are the staff. Because of its location, the majority of the clientele are after work revellers looking to start the weekend with some cocktails.

The Food
Tapas can be really hit and miss but Salvador and Amanda comes up trumps, providing an authentic take on Spanish cuisine and offering more than just the standard tapas menu. The best dish by far is the rib-eye steak, which will set you back £13.50. It is succulent, seasoned and cooked to perfection. Cut in strips, it is easy to share and the green beans make a good side dish. Most of the tapas dishes are between £4-£8. The grilled chicken skewers are especially tasty, the only shame that there aren’t more of them. Pork ribs cost a bit more at £8.50 and while a little fatty, you get a good slab of meat on each rib and they are well cooked. The Spanish meatballs are a must-have, unconventionally mixing patatas bravas into the meatball sauce. These also come with their own spicy sauce, which has just the right amount of spice to give the potatoes a kick but not overpower them.

If you like chorizo then try the cured Iberian pork and smoked paprika sausage, which comes on a large wooden platter. Grilled vegetables are an excellent accompaniment if you find you are ordering mostly meat dishes. There are more interesting dishes on the menu if you don’t like to play it safe - potatoes and chorizo topped off with a fried egg, mini iberico pork sliders and applewood smoked monkfish with gooseberries, to name a few. Seafood also makes up a large chunk of the menu - fried squid, prawn, crab and scallops are all on offer around the £7 mark.

The Drink
If you are drinking, the cocktails must be sampled as they are not just your average ‘Sex On The Beach’ selection. There are a range of Martinis - saffron, Seville orange and brandy - the most expensive priced at £11.50. The Mango and Rosemary Mojito is delicious and goes down very well. Garnished with a long slice of mango, it's positively good for you, especially if you have more than one! Caipirinhas can be made to suit your palate, sweet or sour. The Latin Mule is also a good choice, as is the Sonoran Sunset. All cocktails are £9 or less and are excellent value for money, as well as fooling you into thinking you are drinking in a bar in Spain.

The Last Word
This bar may not be original, but the fusion of tapas and cocktails is certainly done well at Salvador and Amanda. Take your friends after work - they won’t be disappointed.
