Been here many times, always great food and very pleasant atmosphere. Service great despite being busy (even under current limitations).
Lovely place. Great food. Good, polite service. Shame we couldn't drink alcohol during our visit, due to local covid restrictions, but we still had a lovely time & meal.
Food excellent quality, very good value for money. Will definitely be back.
Really great food & service, The covid measures in place were really clear & all staff had face masks on which was reassuring
Beautiful tapas and staff were great
Covid safety measures in place
Outstanding food & staff were superb. Great atmosphere & will be back!
Good food, great service. Could gave been a bit warmer.
Delicious food, good value & came out in a good time frame. Shame we couldn’t stay for dessert due to our 1.5 hrs being up but we understand it’s difficult circumstances currently.
Would definitely recommend for a reasonably priced, delicious meal 🥘
Great food, fantastic service, a nice place to dine.
The restaurant was great in regards to the food and the atmosphere. We sat down and had the menu. We placed both food and drink orders.
The food was great! In regards to the service, not very good at all. Our waiter didn’t ask how our food was, we wasn’t asked did we want a drink for the 2 hours we were sitting there. Then after asking for the bill, we waited for a further 20 minutes. The restaurant wasn’t that busy so there was no excuse for the lack of service.
Go there for food not the service!
Absolutely loved this place! Never been before and was very impressed. It doesn't look much from the outside and is quite small inside, so my first impressions were not brilliant, but as soon as we walked in and were greeted by the friendly team and amazing smells coming from the kitchen the 'small place' became quaint and cosy!
The food is just amazing and great value for money! Great selection of wine available to go with the tapas and for someone who is fussy with their wine glasses, I have to add that the wine glasses are lush - just in case there are other fussy people reading this! We will be back! Thank you for a great evening
Amazing place, stunning food. Cannot wait to come back xx
Food is always of excellent standard, service is warm and friendly. Authentic tapas. Best in Cardiff
Lovely food. Lovely staff. First time at this restaurant but Will be back
Excellent. Lovely meal and great service. Would definitely recommend this to anyone and would certainly visit again.
Excellent food, fantastic and friendly service - one of our party has a severe nut allergy and the chef was so helpful with this. We will definitely be back and recommend Santiago's 100%!
Superb experience food out of this world. Service great too lots of choice with dishes.
Had a table booked for 7.30 it was ready on arrival enjoyed the food and the service was good. We ordered garlic mushrooms but a little disappointed it didn't come with a sauce
Great food and great service, would definitely recommend it
Amazing food, big portions, good and fast service,
Amazing food and the service was great. Staff were very attentive and friendly. Will definitely dine at Santiago’s again!
Absolutely fantastic dining experience, by far the best Tapas we have experienced in the UK!
We loved our meal. The waiter was attentive and personable, and the food was delicious and quick. An excellent experience, we can’t wait to return!
Amazing food and service, will definitely be retuning
Nice atmosphere with great service, we were a table of 4 and we opted for a selection of 2 tapas each then ordered an extra couple at the end.
Had a lovely bottle of Rioja Navajas.
We all agreed we would go again!!
Great food and service was attentive and friendly. Will visit again
Nice place with food ambience. Really friendly staff and there is a huge effort to remain covid secure. Some of the dishes were a little bland but overall quality was good.
Service very good thought drinks expensive food was good but went cold very quickly.
Gave low score for Ambience as Restaurant was very cold could have done with some heat also panel at side of door all scratched could do with a luck of paint. Made the venue look tatty and unloved.
The food was so yummy and the staff were lovely!!
Great food and better value with a very relaxing environment
Had lunchtime tapas, good choice, meat platter was excellent. Nice house wine. Friendly service. Authentic Spanish feel. Beware the padron peppers, very cheeky! Will return and recommend.
Food and service is excellent. Highly recommended
Delicious freshly cooked food. Authentic taste as the last time we had tapas was in Spain and these dishes were just as good! Generous size portions.
Service was friendly and staff very welcoming. We also felt Covid safe. We will definitely be returning.
Very cosy restaurant. Great service and very good food
Really enjoyed our meal here. The tapas was excellent - especially the pulpo and the tortilla. Will hopefully return
Very nice tapas, great service and a nice chilled atmosphere.
Nice Spanish food, very tasty and the service was great
Lovely, but the toilets are a real let down!
I booked Santiago’s as a last minute table, as it was one of the few places left available. This definitely worked out in my favour as the food was delicious.
Albeit, the food is very expensive for the size of the dishes, and the dishes came out very staggered as opposed to in one go which meant some had gone room temperature by the time another dish was brought. But still very tasty!
We went for the tapas plates including the paella and meat balls amongst other dishes. Most of the food was great although the paella was undercooked void of chicken and very bland. The meat balls tasted like they had some kind of liver or offal in them ( the taste was slightly bitter). The rest of the food was fantastic and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. I'd recommend this place but would not have the small plate of paella or meatballs again.
