SquareMeal Review of Salvador & Amanda Covent Garden

Salvador (as in twirly mustachioed surrealist, Señor Dali) & Amanda (as in Ms Lear, his ambiguous, 70s’ disco-diva muse) are the inspirational spirits behind this penumbral, antique basement. It could easily be an Almodóvar film set – if only the clientele were a little more Gael Garcia Bernal rather than Gail Grace & Berni from Basildon here for Wednesday’s ‘surreal dining experience’ with circus cabaret. Service can verge on the ‘Manuel-from-Barcelona’ & prices are not bargain Benidorm by any standards. Take your tapas elsewhere, but finish your fiesta here over pitchers of mojito (£15 all night on Wednesday), Latino cocktails, gutsy Spanish reds, crisp Cavas, bottles of Sagres or jugs of Sangria to the sound of funky beats – if not Y Viva España.

Very bad experience. Booked a table, before paying making sure that the table will not be moved at some point to make space. Looks like the woman taking bookings called Candice will promise you anything just to take your money, because guess what, comes 11pm and the security comes showing us around (it was my husbands birthday party), manager called doesn't care about anything even if you show him you have the promise in writing, and leaves. After that additionally and totally unnecessary the security super rude, aggressive and threatening. All of this on top of overcrowded space, songs on repeat and only 2 actually working barmans for that many people is much too much - there's plenty of other places in London to spend your money, especially if you invite guests for some occasion.

I have been to Salvador and Amanda quite a few times now and have never been disappointed. Went once with a group of 15 and I would say it is definitely worth the money. I have also gone there in a small group, and the waitress was very nice and helped us pick out things we would all like. Our meals came out in a timely manner, and the sangria is to die for. Salvador and Amanda is great for big groups, small groups, a date, or just for drinks.
