Lovely food and staff very helpful. Love this place. Would recommend. Small and compact inside. Have visited before and we have never had any problems even when it is busy it is efficient and the food is wonderful.
The food was delicious, the atmosphere was great and the staff were very friendly! I definately recommend booking a table as it's a small but very popular place.
Booked table at short notice for my son's birthday, intended to eat and move on but had a lovely meal and stayed for a few more drinks.
Outstanding food, wine & service. Real challenger for best south side restaurant. Staff are constantly running about but not too busy for a friendly word or recommendation. Will be back ASAP.
We've enjoyed several meals here bringing friends and family over the last few years, however our last visit was pretty disappointing. The food as usual was lovely, however the service was extremely slow. We waited 15 mins to order a drink and also asked to order our food at the same time. We were told someone would be over to take our food order, however it took another 20 mins before we had our order taken. It then took another 30 mins for our food to come out. It became clear that there was only one person on shift to serve food and clear tables, meanwhile the other guy stood behind the bar most of the evening apart from to take drink orders. The poor waiter was run off his feet. It was a busy Friday evening. We did notice the 'under new management' sign out the front so hopefully its just teething problems and service will improve again with time.
19/4/18 The food was nice and the menu is good however I and my friends were freezing because the outside doors were kept open all night even though it was quite cold outside. We did ask for them to be closed however the restaurant did not want to close them and moved us to a table further into the restaurant (right outside the toilet). None of the 4 of us took our jackets off all night and left early as we were so cold. The waitress was nice but the service was odd with one pudding arriving 10 mins before the next 2 and the fourth arriving 5 or more minutes later again. I am disappointed as I had made the reservation and I know my friends did not have a good night. Poor service and the cold restaurant would stop me going back which is a pity as it is handy for me.
Compact, authentic Spanish tapas bar opposite the historic Battlefield site. Fantastic choice of food, including excellent vegetarian options. Fast, efficient service from friendly staff who were under a great deal of pressure (we visited shortly before the Bruce Springsteen gig at Hampden Park). Great discipline around on-line reservation-our table was ready when we arrived and, as the restaurant was fully booked, spot customers were politely declined. Really can't speak highly enough of this restaurant.
On previous visits to Tinto I have always been impressed with the quality of food and service. Having not visited Tinto for a couple of years, I was disappointed that it didn't live up to its former standards. The steak in the butifarra was tough as old boots and many dishes were lacking in flavour. The best of the bunch was the Fabada, which was much waterier than in most Tapas restaurants but still had a rich smoky flavour. Unfortunately, we were left waiting for our bill for about half an hour, and gave up waiting on the card machine. I hope that Tinto can return to its former glory soon.
The food, staff and surroundings were absolutely fabulous. Under a fair amount of pressure the servers were superb and no table of a very full restaurant was left waiting. The food was of a superb standard and portions were very generous. A sure fire 10/10 to Tinto, well done to all concerned.
it was a Saturday night and started to get really busy after 8.0pm. The atmosphere was great for us, a real bustle if that's what you like. Food service was prompt and we enjoyed five tapas between two. The waiter even prompted us to choose an additional plate as we qualified for the early evening offer which we were unaware of. It took some time to get coffee after the meal mainly because the place was so busy.
