Yet again just the best tapas. Everything SO tasty and served quickly by lovely friendly staff. Just love love love so many of the dishes. Just can't wait for my next visit.
The food was delicious as always, staff lovely and very friendly with great atmosphere in the restaurant. We have been here several times and will continue to come back.
Had a lovely lunch. Loads of choice. Great lunch deals. Food always lovely. With good service and a great atmosphere. Look forward to the next visit
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 very low rate!!! We booked this as we had thought it would have been nice. We were seated next to the kitchen. For us its a nice thing as we like to see whats going on. But looking around there was a shock of disgust. A closer inspection of the lights above us revealed dead insects lying within the light shade. And not just ours so moving tables was not an option. Ordering our food was easy from the menus , but the way the specials had been wrote on our boards was unreadable so we had to leave our seats to look at the main board on the wall. We could see the smoke from the tray the chef pulled out of the oven. We joked that hopefully it was not ours. As our food came out we sat and looked over it. Not very pleasant on the appearance or for that matter taste. Pincho de Pollo con pimiento. Char grilled skewered peppers & chicken breast marinated in smoked con pimento paprika, chilli and lime. Very dry and tasteless with no care for seasoning. Bacalao. Pan fried salt cod with chorizo and black pudding. Again very dry and over cooked, seasoning none whatsoever, the chorizo and black pudding burnt to a crisp. Tasteless. Pulpo Gallega. Carmelised octopus, saffron potatoes with smoked paprika. Potatoes soft and mushy, with not a hint of saffron to be tasted. Octopus was very scarce and small. Under seasoned and the smell from it was definitely not appealing. Although we did ask if it was fresh or frozen, and was assured it was not frozen and delivered fresh every day..hhhmmm? Albondigas. Homemade Pork & Beef meatballs in a spicy tomato sauce. Meatballs were watery and unpleasant. Not a hint of spice within the tomato sauce, very bland. Again no seasoning. What is it with tasting the food you serve? Higos con Jamon. Warm toasted figs wrapped with Serrano ham with honey and almonds. Two small figs, warmed and toasted with honey? wrapped in Serrano ham.. yes..but covered in a tasteless powder that looked like the dried parmesan you get from the supermarket. Again were were advised that this was almonds. And not cheese. We had a giggle at this one even though it was quite unpleasant. Morcilla de patata chistora. Thin fried potatoes with chistora, Iberian black pudding topped with a duck egg. This was the one we had looked forward to sharing. Alas this was the breaker. The smoke we had seen earlier from our table looking into the kitchen, was indeed our dish. i had asked for the duck egg to have a soft yolk which did indeed come like that. Bravo you can cook an egg. The rest was burnt and you know it was. You still served it knowing that was a bad move. The Iberian black pudding was indeed black and i mean crunchy black. The chistora burnt to a crisp and both hidden in amongst the thin fried potatoes which were overly done also. I did ask for it to be sent back on which the young member of the team did advise this was the way it gets cooked. A fresh dish appeared mins later but with a hard fried egg on top. We didn't even attempt to even try the dish. It was over. We decided to pay the bill and leave as this wasn't going anywhere, with the response we had been given for the meal we had just been served. Although the member of staff did take off three of the tapas from the bill. Not satisfied with our visit to this establishment and still hungry. Food 1/10 Service 1/10 Housekeeping 0/10 We decided to head to another local establishment across the road. Will we be back. NO!!!
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.
