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!

Great food, friendly staff, nice atmosphere. Frequently ate here when called La Bota and pleased that it is basically the same comfortable place but with improved food!

The food and service were excellent. This has become one of our favourite local spots. The selection of authentic tapas and wines makes for a great evening. Highly recommended.

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'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 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!

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.

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

I really like La Bota, compared to a lot of tapas restaurants in London the portion sizes are pretty decent (try the tortilla!), and so are the prices. An authentic taste of Spain in London.

This was our first visit to Launch Bota and won't be our last. This buzzy, holiday feel tapas bar is friendly and upbeat with a menu and wine list to match. Try the wild boar cheeks with fennel and the glazed aubergine. This was a wonderful experience which was romantic as well as fun.... 5 stars!

Food was delicious we had sardines, black pudding, bread with Serrano ham and tomatos, asparagus and ham croquettes which were very tasty - highly recommended. We were a bit late but luckily the table was still saved for us. Very busy so the service was a little slow but once the order was put in we didn't have to wait too long at all.

We usually have an excellent experience at La Bota, both foodwise and service, but last night was disappointing as some of the tapas came out to our table later than others, and one of the orders wasn't correct.

Fantastic evening here with my wife. Great food and wine. All staff very warm and friendly. Service was great. Live flamenco dancing was a great touch and made for a fantastic atmosphere, although if you're not interested in the dancing you may find it noisy Will be back...

I love this restaurant. The service is friendly, the atmosphere is relaxed, the food is amazing and it's really good value. The rabbit in sherry sauce is one of my favourites but we've ordered nearly everything on the menu over a few visits and it's consistently good.

We still love this restaurant for its good food and good value for money. However it is not outstanding as it was under the previous owner. The emphasis on authenticity, freshly cooked dishes and quality of produce has now given way to more emphasis on presentation. Sadly the colourful and lively decor which gave a real charm to the place has now been replaced by a drab monotone (fashionable?) grey.

Great local tapas restaurant. Six of us booked in for dinner. Total bill came to £198 after ordering x2 bottles of red wine, a few beers and LOADS of food. Really tasty and plenty of variety. Well worth a visit. Great service too, very welcoming and family-run"sequel". Make sure you try the scallops and chorizo.

Decent food and good wine by the carafe, a winning combination. Service is a little inattentive, but the food comes out pretty quickly. It did, however, empty out pretty quickly and had little atmosphere by about 10.30pm - and this was a Friday night. Much cheaper than the other well-known tapas restaurant in Crouch End.

We will come back. The atmosphere was perfect. It was a lovely place. We went early on Sunday night so it wasn't too noisy or too quiet, just perfect. The wine was excellent and good value for money. The food was very good, especially the blue cheese croquettes. The service was excellent and friendly.

The food was good, it came quickly, the staff were friendly and helpful and gave suggestions and the atmosphere was good. Lively restaurant. We had booked on a Saturday night but plenty people seemed to be able to walk in and get tables without reservations, although the restaurant was reasonably full.

Really tasty food and a pleasant atmosphere. The service however was slow and advice given to us about dishes poor. Also, we ordered drinks from the bar that were not brought to us - the person behind the bar was more interested in chatting up a female customer than serving us!! Worth a visit and will return if in the area again.

We ordered the bread and aioli, meatballs, two kinds of croquetas, lentil stew, bacalao tempura, garlic prawns, pollo al ajillo, mushrooms in garlic, 2 jugs of sangria, 3 beers, 3 coffees and two desserts and it all came to less than £100 for 4 people. Everything was delicious.

Amazing and genuinely Spanish tapas restaurant. They've been going on since 1992 and this proves how reliable they are. The restaurant also offers a good choice of wines and Spanish brandies. Their Chorizo in Wine is amazing.

It was a busy bank holiday Sunday but the service was appalling. On arrival our table at the back was just pointed out to us. No one came to take a drinks order for 30 minutes and only then when I asked them to come over. We waited 45 minutes between dishes, were abruptly told they had 'run out of potatoes', which we had ordered 90 minutes before. All this could have been forgiven if the staff had been in any way apologetic - instead we were made to feel as if the delays and problems were in some way our fault. I will not be going back.
