Glasgow may be more renowned for the Barras than its barrios, but at Tinto Tapas on Hyndland Street in the West End, you can experience a taste of Spanish cuisine in the Dear Green Place. Its location is enviable – right by Kelvinhall subway and a short hop from Partick railway station – and its welcome is as warm as an afternoon by the pool in Benidorm. The menu features all the favourites beloved of anyone who’s ever had the pleasures of the back streets of Barcelona, so what are you waiting for? Gather up your amigos and dander on down to the Costa del Clyde for a superb Spanish supper.

Their tapas menu is among the finest in Glasgow, and their drinks list is packed with wines guaranteed to get your night out rioja-ing and rolling. If you bring enough folk with you – and, if you’ve ever had tapas, you’ll know that a large group is the way to go, amigo – you can get the full spread of Spanish favourites on your trip to Hyndland Street in Glasgow’s West End.
Of course, when feeding a large group, it can be hard to please everyone, but at Tinto Tapas, the Spanish small plates selection is guaranteed to have something to suit all tastes. Seafood specialists will love the range of prawn, squid, hake and cod options – as well as, of course, the paella – and landlubbers will appreciate the meat and chicken tapas selection.

All we can say is that if you’re planning a party, or looking for a place to start off your West End night out, then you will struggle to do better than this Hyndland Street tapas bar – so book your table now and head on out to the West End.
This place has an especially great service, delicious but small meals. Relatively long waiting time but totally worth it. Nice and authentic atmosphere. . .
Was my first visit to Tinto and overall was very impressed. We arrived early but were made to feel very welcome and shown to our table right away. The food and service was excellent and the staff displayed a great knowledge of the food and wine. Would recommend.
Great food and service. No pressure to leave the table at any point even though we had finished eating. Offer made it a bargain - will be back for another visit soon.
Excellent food and at a great price for the Tuesday night deal! Really good atmosphere and authentic tapas, very much enjoyed our night and would definitely go back.
Good ,authentic food with an excellent choice. Nice homely feel to the place too. I did not feel like i was in a chain restaurant. The salt cod with chorizo and black pudding which i ordered was as good as anything i have tasted quite possibly ever. The Churros were also outstanding. A couple of dishes were just good rather than great but nothing was poor. Friendly service too although perhaps a little slow but i like to take my time in restaurants when i eat out so that suited me fine but might not suit everyone. I would definitely go back and hope to do so in the near fiture.
Not a bad experience. Just not amazing. Firstly there was a panic as our booked table was given to the couple in front. The staff then offered us one of about 6 empty tables - no problem, but why the fuss. We were then told our 5pm deal wasn't valid. Even though we booked it for the occasion. Och well, good job we were willing to spend more. (Watch for the t&c's) Portions were small but tasty. Restaurant was quiet for s Saturday night. Service was prompt. Our waitress' first night. She was good. Go here for good tapas. Order lots as portions are small. Good service and a pleasant restaurant.
This is a very good relatively small but comfortable tapas restaurante. Conveniently located with reasonable on-street parking and good public transport links. Staff were very welcoming and attentive and mainly native Spanish speakers. Menus are available in both English and Spanish. Food was well cooked and presented. Prices for both food and drink were good value. I would certainly recommend Tinto as an authentic Spanish eating place and plan to make a return visit.
Great place for an informal meal with friends or family. Friendly, helpful staff, tasty tapas in a relaxed environment. We went on tapas Tuesday and it was busy but we felt neither hurried nor ignored by the Spanish staff, who tolerated my amateurish attempts at a few Spanish words with good grace. Great to visit with a group & share tapas to enjoy a great range of flavours.
Nice pleasant experience , offered a nice able following our reservation. Only criticism of the evening would be that one of the dishes / tapas did not arrive until meal was almost over, when it did arrive the food was cold. However, pleasant service and nice ambience helped our party of four to experience what was expected, a nice calm quality early evening supper.
really good food and wine at Tinto's. Good service and nice staff. I happened to leave two concert tickets for a nearby venue on our table, and the manager found me in the queue to retunr them before I was aware of the matter. A 300m sprint each way was a kind gesture.
