My wife and I have been regulars at Sabor and la Bota, as it was before its refurbishment. We were not completely happy with the changes made, notably to the menu, and the move away from tapas, but were delighted to find that the new pre-cinema tapas menu consisted of beautifully prepared dishes and was great value for money -even better than our memories of la Bota.
Th refurbished interior is an improvement, feeling more spacious. Don't worry about the changes of name - now La Fabrica - the food and service remains second to none.
Staff were very attentive and it was a lovely evening, we stayed till it closed, very romantic and the food was perfect! Thanks guys. we would come again.
Excellent food and staff; lovely atmosphere. Portions are generous. Particularly like the chick pea and spinach stew. My local tapas restaurant and I'll continue to go....one of my favourites!
This was our second visit to La Bota. There has always been a good friendly welcome here and the food and selection is great. It was just unfortunate that we didn't receive all the dishes we ordered. There was some confusion, they gave us the wrong dish and when we advised we hadn't ordered it, it should have been something else with the same main ingredient it somehow removed another dish from our order...as it turned out we had plenty to eat with the 5 dishes between us and didn't need the 6th. We had ordered water but received none. We never ordered olives but were given some, this had happened on a previous visit so we never thought anything of it but there was a £2.50 charge on the bill for it which is even more expensive that they charge for olives, according to their website it should be £1.95! The charge for the Sangria on the bill was higher than the price in the menu, the menu price was £13 something and the charge was £14.50. There were just too many small things that weren't right for us to completely relax and enjoy our evening...I say evening but somehow, and I still don't quite know how, we were in and out in 30 minutes! Sadly just not the relaxing Saturday night meal out we'd been expecting.
Sabor is a rebooted La Bota. We used to love La Bota, so were a bit worried it had changed. However, it was a pleasant surprise. A bit more expensive (admittedly, La Bota was quite low budget), but we thought it was worth it. Some old favourites were still on the menu, with some new and imaginative additions. We always stick to the tapas, so can't speak for main courses. We particularly liked the tartare of tuna with avocado cream and sesame seeds. We thought it was sensational. We wanted to order another one, but we'd already eaten the last one available that night. We intend to go again.
La Bota is a consistently good restaurant. The service is friendly and efficient and because we use it so much they always recognise us and have a joke. The tapas is great. Try the beetroot salad or boquerones and patatas bravas with the Temtranillo wine. Delicious! There is now a sister restaurant in Stroud Green called La Fabrica which is also fantastic and very trendy. The guy who runs both of these eateries has definitely found a winning formula!
We are regular customers at La Bota, often combining a meal there with a visit to the nearby Arthouse Cinema. We are invariably impressed with the selection and quality of the tapas, the service and value for money at La Bota and highly recommend it.
The food at La Bota is superb, always and the fact that people were turned away because the tables were filled by 8pm is indicative of its popularity. The staff are charming and we love going there. We've also been there on a flamenco evening which was very atmospheric.
I have lived in crouch end for a quite a long time and really don't know why I hadn't tried La Bota before. The service and food was lovely and the portions were just right. We ordered plenty of food and felt the prices were extremely reasonable. Looking forward to going back soon
We always enjoy our evenings at La Bota. The food, service and ambience are brilliant. We have been going to La Bota for many years.
This was my first time at La Bota having walked by it many times. I will definitely go back. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. The staff were super friendly and made the experience even nicer.
We've been to La Bota before and always enjoyed it but this time we thought that the food was better than ever. The service was good and efficient, all the dishes we ordered arrived together, were hot and most importantly delicious.
We had been to La Bota a few years ago and been quite happy with it. When we arrived this evening we were placed at the back of the restaurant and when we asked if this was the only table we were told sorry that's what happens when you book so late. The ordering was fine, but the starters arrived with one of the tapas dishes and then ten mins later some of the other dishes arrived. The first dish was almost cold when the other dishes arrived. We had to ask for bread twice. Some of the dishes were very tasty but for the cost I felt that the quality was poor. For approx £5.50, the asparagus dish was three slices of cheese on top of four sticks of very salty asparagus. The potatoes and salad never arrived. The atmosphere was frenetic and the bill was incorrect. This was supposed to be a special meal with friends and ended up being an ordeal. The service was poor and we were never asked if everything was ok and had to ask for the bill twice. We left swiftly and went to a different restaurant for desert and drinks. A very disappointing evening.
We have eaten there a few times before, and liked it very much; this time it excelled itself. Every dish was so delicious we ended up ordering two more plates. Even the bread and olives were out of the ordinary We ate very well, drank very well, and ended up with a bill of £33 per head, including a decent tip. Very highly recommended.
We went to La Bota on one of the monthly nights when there is flamenco music and dancing and the atmosphere was great, very busy, need to book. The dancing was superb!
Had reviewed before as recently discovered regulars at this restaurant. Have to say though that Sunday they excelled with both food and service. Staff recognised and acknowledged us. The specials menu with steak, lamb cutlets and glorious spicy stuffed mussels was fantastic. A really varied treat, great value for money and fantastical warming experience on a very cold and windy day on the outside!
I loved La Bota and I'm sorry they've removed a few favourites from the menu but was very pleasantly surprised with Sabor the new layout is more comfortable providing a softer cosier atmosphere will definitely be going back
The food quality has improved a lot and now is tastier. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful, and the atmosphere is quite relax. A pleasure to eat at La Bota.
The food at La Bota was absolutely delicious and the staff were friendly and efficient. Really nice atmosphere inside. Food took a while to come but staff were apologetic, and it was worth waiting for
