The food was warm and would have been better if hot. The ribs were fatty and inedible so refunded off the bill. The nachos were lovely and service was fine.

We were taken to our table by the lovely staff where we sat down for a few minutes whilst we were waiting for the drinks order. When we looked at the drinks menu, to our surprise the selection wasn’t as extensive as we were first led to believe. We settled for a jug of sangria which was very watery due to loads of ice in there. It took a while for a waiter to come and take our food order. Upon looking at the food menu, we were also left disappointed at the selection/range as we really wanted the steak but it wasn’t available. We settled for half rack of ribs each.
It took over an hour for our food to get there. It wasn’t worth the wait to say the least! The home made barbecue sauce tasted more like a tomato sauce and the ribs were dry and effectively tasteless. The chips were not salted enough and there wasn’t salt on the table.
We complained about this when asked how the food was and the staff were accommodating and offered us a replacement to which we accepted. To our surprise it came within 5 minutes, it was in fact worse than the first meal. This one was also dry, however they did give us condiments to combat this. Adding to that, the food was not warm enough.This then put us off ordering dessert as we were not satisfied with the main course.
Overall the staff were very accommodating and kind, however the food wasn’t up to standard contrary to our friends’ feedback. Unfortunately we won’t be visiting again after having high expectations.

Food was awesome, atmosphere was great. We were sat outside, despite there being some heaters it was too cold for me. Service was good. I’d recommend coming here for dinner but be prepared to sit outside with warm clothes on.

The food we had was absolutely outstanding! The only reason I haven't given a 5 star review is because we booked the table because of seeing the steaks on the menu which appealed to the men in the party....upon arrival, there were no steaks in the menu. We had to ask and they said that there were no steaks available. There was also no chilli con carne. So a little disappointing but we still found other things to eat. We will just have to visit again to try their steaks but will be calling ahead to make sure they are available!

Food was lovely as usual and good value especially the kids meals. Table service was very slow, this has happened a few time we have been and it doesn't matter if the restaurant is quiet or busy. It take ages for drinks orders to come (if they manage to bring you the correct order that is). And when asking for the bill, I had to go and ask for it a 2nd time after waiting to leave for over 30 mins. Still it's a nice atmosphere and lovely service from the staff albeit slow.

Excellent Sunday lunchtime visit, really good quality tapas, it was a shame we were the only diners, people need to use this restaurant as it is excellent, the service was perfect, lovely people and a super menu. The food really was up to a high standard, we will be beck for sure, just need others to use it as it needs the business and the atmosphere. We were assured evenings are busy, especially when they have paella.

I want to share pics and photos!!!! I have been many, many times before, but this time took my best friend for her birthday, her 1st time, we had a cell, treated us like absolute queen's, but I get treated the same even with my husband. They serenaded her with birthday song and instrument and cake with candle! The best atmosphere, the best food, shamed to say that with my friend we couldn't finish it all! Love the staff and just everything. I'll be back, why not?

Another excellent evening spent with friends at Rico Sabor, Gravesend.
Staff were as friendly and pleasant as usual, food and wine equally as good.
Booked a cell this time, to add to the experience.

We ate in a group of 6 for my son’s birthday. Some of the food was cold when it arrived. Card machine wasn’t working so we had to find a cash point. No draught beer. No pulled pork. One of the four puddings was not available either. We have been here many times before but has seemingly gone downhill and we won’t be returning.

Absolutely disgusting customer service. We ended up walking out. We nicely asked to move to a different table, to which it was a straight up “no” and a sarcastic comment of “can you not see how busy we are”, it was completely empty so didn’t understand why we was forced to sit in the cold, yet we didn’t complain. We then ordered food, I spoke on behalf of my partner as well to which I got told “is that all for you?” and “why do you need 2 mains?” After all that hassle and attitude, we was then told after we ordered there was no pork or chicken on such a “busy night”. I will happily never return and would defiantly not recommend to any friends or family, in fact I’ll be advising for them to avoid due to the disgusting comments and rude behaviour by our waiter.

Our party of six people were disappointed to find the menu was greatly reduced and we found that the meals on offer were not really what we expected to be able to order.

Great atmosphere, friendly and attentive staff and good food.
A little bit of Spanish/South American culture, on a plate.
I have been number of times now, and each time has been as consistently good as the last.

First time using this one in gravesend and I won’t be back..
It was absolutely freezing inside the restaurant.
Food was barely warm and not hot at all
No draught beer and then only had one bottle of the one my husband did like.
No hot drinks
Felt very rushed the waiter was constantly looking over shoulders to see if we had finished eating.

Although the food was superb it was spoiled by the fact it took 90 minutes for our starter to arrive. When it finally did it was bought out together with the main. We were then told by the manager that we asked for it like this. After complaining it was clear the manager couldn’t have cared less. We were given a free drink but this did not make up for the bad attitude and diabolical service.

Excellent, food was fantastic & the team scattered som petals & left us a rose on the table. They also put a small fruit bowl on the table. This was a nice touch. It was our anniversary weekend and we’d been to two fine dining restaurants on the proceeding days. Funny how the local restaurant, just going there for a late lunch ends up going to the most amount of effort. Food , wine and service were excellent. Well recommend.
