The week away in Benidorm, Magaluf or Alicante is a Scottish family tradition, and now – if you live in South Lanarkshire at least – there’s no need to leave the delicacies of Spain back on the Costa. Tinto Tapas on Main Street in Uddingston couldn’t be easier to reach, as it lies just yards from the Uddingston train station, so wherever you are in Glasgow, you can be transported to Tenerife in no time at all: just book a table and head on over for a slice of Spanish tapas and a revolving cast of riojas, sangrias and sherries.
If you’re planning a night out in Uddingston – and you have a large group of friends – then you can do a lot worse than a trip to Tinto Tapas on Main Street in Uddingston. Their selection of Spanish delicacies is among the best in South Lanarkshire, and their location close to Uddingston station means that you can take the trip in from Glasgow easily as well, making Tinto Tapas a superb destination to celebrate. Share a selection of small plates across your group, and don’t forget to wash them down with lashings of Rioja, Verdejo, Tempranillo or any of their other Spanish wines.
Just a cursory glance at the menu on this stretch of Uddingston Main Street is sure to transport you away to Spain. It takes in the full diversity of the cuisine of Iberia and its many regions.From the seas around Spain come paellas packed with seafood, or boquerones, marinated anchovies – favourites of anyone who has visited Majorca or Ibiza. Those who holiday on the Costa del Sol (as opposed to the Costa del Saltcoats) will recognise Andalusian dishes like hummus and jamon iberico, Spanish-style ham. Lloret and Torroella del Mar regulars will want to finish with the crema Catalana, and we’re sure that everyone will want a sherry at the end of their meal as well. Book a table now and begin your culinary tour of Spain at Tinto Tapas in Uddingston.
Gorgeous food, fantastic staff and very reasonable. My friends and I had a lovely time at Tintos , sharing Tapas & wine. Staff very welcoming and attentive. Can't wait to go back.

A lovely meal, very tasty and lots of variety. Helpful and friendly staff
Last minute booking and as usual not disappointed. Even brought a Tinto newby and as I expected the food was delicious. Not long before we are back again..
The Tapas were lovely, I then had brazed steak which was also good not brilliant though my wife had sea food paella which wasn't up to their usual standard, only 2 desserts to choose from was disappointing especially as one was crackers and cheese?? We opted for fresh fruit fondoo, the service wasn't brilliant, it was attentive but lacked a personal touch I also had trouble when trying to book a table, after booking through Quandoo I got a call from the restaurant to inform me that they were actually fully booked so I couldn't have my booking, I then phoned Quandoo who were pleasant enough and didn't understand why the restaurant was fully booked so they phoned the restaurant, I then phoned the restaurant and was giving a table although it was 4 hours later than I originally wanted So overall I'd say we had an ok experience at the restaurant and with booking through Quandoo, I will try booking with Quandoo again and hopefully get the time I want as for Tintos restaurant in Uddingston I think it might be some time before we go back
Fabulous time at Tintos Tapas. We had to contact them and dance our booking as we didn't have a babysitter. We managed to get one and recontacted to book in again. They couldn't have been nicer about it and fit us back in. When we got there we were greeted by a lovely female member of staff who enquired about our children and made us feel very welcome. All the staff were lovely and polite, food was amazing and good selection and the setting was beautiful. It felt homely and comforting and made us feel like we were sitting among friends having a meal. Great night overall and will definitely go back.
A delicious late lunch, 3pm, with my friends. I found the surroundings very pleasant and the waiting staff happy at their work as well as efficient. The food was excellent and the portions were larger than expected - a nice surprise. It was very good value for money. An excellent choice on both menus made it hard to choose but all the dishes we had were lovely. I would definitely visit again.
Overall I enjoyed my meal especially the paella which was outstanding. Downside was a chipped jug of wine which caused the wine to spill over my bag. Pointed out the chipped jug to the waitress but she didn't change it had to ask another waitress to do this. Also I ordered toast with sardines and the toast arrived very black and burnt looking. Just edible Also we asked for sweet menus and they didn't arrive had to ask another waitress to bring them. However the paella was stunning and made up for the above. Kids meal was also good value. Just need to watch the small details.
+ve - the food and wine was of a good standard and to our table quickly after our order. A good price and good value for money. The waiting staff were attentive although not particularly friendly, they weren't rude or unhelpful - probably just busy. -ve - the tables are so close together that we had to constantly move our chairs to allow the waitress and other guests to move around the room. We were also constantly bumped by the waiting staff as they passed us. Also, although I understand the importance of ambient music, it was so loud that we could barely hear each other speak. The negatives had a big impact on our experience and I don't know whether we would go back, although if we did, we would probably ask for a specific table out of the main thoroughfare.
As ever......from arrival to leaving the resteraunt,we were very well looked after.It was my wife's birthday so I had ordered flowers from a local florist to be delivered to tintos to give to my wife.The flowers were on the table as we walked in which I thought was a nice touch. I would highly recommend this resteraunt to everyone.Great food,great atmosphere and great service!
