De Nada is a wonderful restaurant with an excellent atmosphere and friendly staff. I have visited a number of times and we have never failed to have a great night. The authentic Spanish food is always incredible!

De Nada is about a 40min drive for us and my partner I were really excited to go for a Saturday evening treat. We arrived 6pm and it was not busy. Immediately I was disappointed because the only no alcohol beer option on the menu was not in stock. When we ordered our tapas plates one of them was not available, despite it being so early in the evening. This limited our tapas choices which was also disappointing. I asked for bread to share and was given 4 tiny slices of French bread at a cost of £2 - this was overpriced and very stingy. Our food came out slowly, one plate at a time so that we were not able to enjoy the different plates such a potato and prawns together. My partner and I are both very careful about our food intake but when we go for dinner we like to relax and enjoy the meal.... We both felt the portion sizes were on the small side. The atmosphere was good and the wait staff lovely. However, the overall feel was that it wasn't quite the tapas restaurant we had hoped for and I would not return.

We enjoyed a lovely meal at De Nada. Lovely, cosy setting, relaxed ambiance with a traditional Spanish feel inside. The service was excellent, wine and food both very good. We felt that we could have been in London rather than Guildford - a great quality experience. I would recommend.

Came here not knowing what to expect & found a lively (noisy) restaurant & wine bar. Our waiter took our order without writing it down & did forget one item patatas bravas but it didn't really matter as the food we had was delicious although that dish would have rounded the meal off well. The food certainly arrived quickly & we were finished within half an hour which was amazingly fast & not really what we are expecting. So great food, lively venue but possibly not the place to catch up with friends as too noisy to hear what others were saying. Probably best as a pre/post cinema or theatre meal.

Service was too quick and so felt stressed out and couldn't relax. I asked for a large glass of wine, got a medium, but still charged for a large - luckily the waitress too the entire glass off of the bill. Tapas came out in dishes with no serving spoons (which should be a standard for tapas given that you share it and put it on your plates) so we had to ask. Bread and oil/vinegar came out for starter with a drip of vinegar in and so had to ask for more. Asked for bread to be brought out as a starter before the tapas, but everything came out together. Food was nice though, and the atmosphere was lovely in the restaurant. Would go back again, but would not choose it over 'El Pic' in Camberley.

We had to arrive later than our reserved time but this was accommodated although the restaurant was very busy. The atmosphere was great. The service was fast and friendly (although they had to be reminded to bring a couple of the items we had ordered) and the savoury tapas were delicious, well cooked and typically Spanish. The Crema Catalana and Sangria were good too but the churros were a bit disappointing (tasted like they might have been cooked in the same oil as the savoury items).

We've been a number of times for dinner, just the two of us and it's always been fantastic. However, today (Mother's Day 2017) was a disappointing departure from previous form. Having studied the specials board, we were told there were no specials. Having asked for sauce on the side with the patatas bravas, (to accommodate the kids), they were served smothered in the spicy sauce. We asked for some butter for the kids to have with their bread and were told they had no butter!? How does a restaurant have no butter?! However, we did ask for some favourites that were not on the lunch menu and they accommodated us. All-in-all, a lack lustre performance, so a slightly harsh 4 today because I know they can do better!

I ate there after work one evening in early July with my son who had recommended the place. From the moment we walked in I was impressed by the atmosphere and welcome from the staff who clearly enjoyed what they were doing. The choice, quality and price of the food was very good and I liked the relaxed way the food was brought to our table; no all at once. I would definitely eat there again and have already recommended it to friends.

Lovely little place, really good feel about the place, staff were good, the tapas was pretty good, I'll be honest I've had better elsewhere but the chorizo dish and the squid dish were up there with the best! On a side note the Sangria wasn't strong enough, tasted like kids sangria! Only proper down side was the mentally loud woman sat near us, who seemed to love the attention of shouting all the way through the evening, but that isn't De Nada's fault, they could of course say to her "No eres bienvenido" next time! We will be back

The food was lovely, and the staff friendly and very helpful. We weren't expecting it to be quite as noisy as it was - conversation was quite difficult even round a small table, so not the place to go for a quiet chat (on a Friday evening, anyway) - and that was mainly just the noise of other people talking - it seemed to get louder and louder! And we did have to resort to putting the wine/water bottles on the floor as the table was just too tiny, even with only 3 of us (the 4th member of our party wasn't able to come, but there wasn't room for her anyway!!). It was a nice atmosphere though.

Great evening with tasty food! We were celebrating my husband's birthday. This is the second time we have been there as the previous visit was for my son's birthday. Pleased that both times we were not disappointed. Have recommended to friends who have also enjoyed their tapas. I was unlucky in not being able to have the padron peppers as they had run out as well as the Churros con chocolate but that's a good excuse to return!

De Nada is excellent! The interior is beautifully decorated and has an intimate atmosphere. Everything we ordered was delicious, especially the chorizo with sherry, roasted mushrooms with garlic, and blue cheese. Overall a fantastic, authentic experience and I look forward to going back.

Visited today for our anniversary meal :-) Service excellent, food very good. I would have preferred it if all courses came out together , but really not an issue. Have read reviews where people have complained about being rushed but we were allowed to take our time :-) Everything fresh and hot, although roasted med veg served cold so be aware. All good as far as we were concerned :-) My only gripe was the chuross was light and fluffy but quiet oily :-(

A lovely little restaurant tucked away in the centre of town. Great atmosphere and good, quick service which you need in a tapas restaurant in case you want to order some extra dishes. I would have liked some more salad/veg options on the menu to balance the richer dishes. Could also do with the specials being in English on the board and not just Spanish as it's a pain to ask what each one is. Minor points though!

Great atmosphere, great service, and, most importantly, great food! We went on a thursday eve for our anniversary dinner and had a fantastic meal and time. Try the sangria, it's world-class! Thank to the whole De Nada team.

I went to De Nada at the weekend for a special meal with my other half. We really enjoyed the relaxed surroundings, the friendly, efficient service and the simple but delicious authentic food. We'll definitely be going back!
