We visited at the weekend for my partners birthday and had no idea what to expect as it was our first time visiting Pix. From the minute we walked in we were made to feel welcome by Scott and the rest of the team , we were explained the setup straight away and the experience just got better from then on. We had a great seat right next to the bar so could see what delights were coming out next. The staff were all so friendly and made the place feel fun and lively, It was nice to watch the staff enjoy their job. The food was amazing, always fresh and tasted so nice, great way to try new things and a real nice experience.

Highly recommend this place and I can't wait to go back.

Nice place for a drink and pinxos, of which there is a wide and interesting selection. The concept is fun though ends up as a relatively expensive experience (e.g a slice of fig and goats cheese on bread is £3.50)

Fabulous experience, great quality food that was beautifully put together, even the Sangria was skilfully made and the atmosphere was excellent!

First time visitor as per recommendation and myself and my colleague had a lovely lunch.

The buffet option was affordable and there was so much choice. Whilst the dishes were small do not be fooled, they are packed with flavour and very filling, so much so we couldn't test the deserts!

My only negative was the seating; it was not very comfortable being so high up and squished in, it would be good to have some table options inside rather than the bar stall type vibe.

That being said, that service was outstanding and I would certainly return to try some more of Pix's delicious treats!

We love Pix, sadly now we loved Pix. We had a really poor night there, especially as introducing two friends to Pix. So we arrived and table all good. Ordered drinks, two came after a wait, took another 10 minutes for the other two to arrive. The restaurant wasn’t busy so food turnover was slower. A poor choice of food for our vegetarian in the group. Others asked if calamari was coming out, checked a few times no show even though promised. On the last check we were offered that they would bring two to the table for us. Waited at least 15 minutes, nothing, went up as given up and decided to go for dessert and a tray of calamari, half gone was on the side.
The waiter however was very attentive to the group of young females on the next table!
So we went to pay the bill, we explained that we wanted to reduce the tip. Waiter took the first payment, the. When we went to pay the rest he said we couldn’t reduce the tip as we had started to pay, we felt £15 was generous enough for poor service and not the £27 ‘optional’ service on the bill. As we pointed out it was optional so a reduction was allowed and we had pointed this out before he had taken any money the waiter went to see his manager, who took the whole charge off.
Sadly a really poor experience, we won’t be back .

We were looking for a quick dinner pre-show and Tapas seem to fit the bill perfectly. My daughter had been to Pix on several occasions and recommended it. I was not disappointed. The choice of Tapas was excellent and it was all cooked to perfection. Great ambiance and very excellent service from the enthusiastic team at Pix. Highly recommend and I will be using it as a regular eating spot when I am in the West End from now on.

Have been to Pix before but it never fails to surprise with new additions to the menu. First visit as a pescatarian and was astonished at the selection! Certainly didn’t feel deprived in any way. Great aperol spritz as well.

Friendly, bubbly, welcoming, fun to be in place, with good, tasty, fresh and a strong selection of food, that keeps your interest piqued and you going back for more. The team were engaging, funny, and really made my birthday very special, bringing a magician over to do a trick and trying to help the clientele to enjoy their evening.
Would I go again, most definitely and I would recommend to anyone for the food and the fun time 😃

Great for a quick bite before going to the theatre but I found it expensive. We paid £78 for a meal for two people. We had 13 sticks (tapas plates consists either hot food or cold which is a slice of baguette and topping), one Aperol spritz (50ml), one Bellini plus 12.5% optional service charge (you have to get the food yourself so not sure about this charge but we paid it anyway). It is a nice spot with good vibes but I wish it was bit better value.

Food quite good but definitely not a place for the gluten-free. Very disappointed after being over charged here. We took 8 dishes between us but were charged for 10. Unfortunately we didn't realise we had been over charged until we examined the bill after we left, which is something we can learn from. However I do feel that it is a bit of a cheek to automatically include service in a self-service restaurant!

Great place and great food, you feel you’re actually in Spain!
The only downside I would say it’s the noise, the music was way to loud

Pix is an easy concept, you have a table, order a drink and then help yourself to the regularly refreshed dishes available on the bar, all labelled to help your choice. You then pay for what you've eaten by counting up the skewers. All the food we chose was tasty, fresh and completely eaten, no leftovers here. Favourites: salt cod fritters and the four cheese fritters. The only down side? All the skewers are quick and easy to eat, so you might spend far more than you intended!
