Great Service Great food. Love this place. The place is cosy with great atmosphere. The menu is very varied and I am sure would suit all.

Great wee place food was exellent and staff very friendly myself and my family ate some dishes we would never thought of trying before. We will be back
Tinto is one of the best tapas restaurants in Glasgow. Staff are very friendly and the selection and quality of food is terrific. You wont regret dining there!
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.
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.
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.
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.
I have been to Tintos in Battlefield mamy times as the food and service are excellent! The food is very authentic. In addition the restaurant itself always has a great atmosphere. I have also been to Tintos in Partick, however this is not as good as the one in Battlefield
The food was great, although some of the Tapas portions were a bit small. Portion of chicken croquettes consisted of two pieces, whereas chicken strips had about six for a similar price. Seemed a bit imbalanced. That said the food was great, the atmosphere was great and the staff were super friendly. I would definitely go back
