At first glance, the section of Harrow Road that winds into Willesden appears to have little in the way of drinking or eating, however persevering down this gloomy, traffic-congested thoroughfare yields an unpredictable treasure a tapas bar, of the authentic kind, where you can sip a cold Estrella and have a complimentary dish of tasty pork belly and crusty bread delivered to your table to nibble on while you watch Spanish pop videos on the big screen. Despite its billing as a Galician eatery, the menu includes paella and classic tapas dishes such as spicy potatoes and Manchego cheese. The wine is served in elephant-sized glasses, the waiters are smartly dressed in waistcoats and the tables have cute red tablecloths and neatly folded napkins; its French bistro chic meets Galician tapas in London. In Willesden, to be precise. Like finding a hose pipe in the desert.

Me and my family (7 total) visited this restaurant on Sunday afternoon and although the food was good,having to wait over 2 hours was unacceptable and the attitude of the waiter's was disgraceful and we wasn't the only table that was complaining..never again.

Booked here for a birthday party having eaten once before & enjoyed the food. This time however I honestly can't recall whether the food was any good or not because the music was so ear-splittingly awful and loud. 70's spanish synthesiser crap played by some 60 year old crooner. Our table was at the back of the room & we could only talk to the people sat directly next to us, not opposite. It was clear from looking around the room that others were having the same problem.
Oh & the service was pretty shoddy too - the waitresses were too busy dancing to notice little things like a table full of customers trying to grab your attention. I even went onto the dance floor to ask one of them to take a drinks order, still to no avail. A previous reviewer mentioned booking a table downstairs for a "quiet meal", I'd suggest phone first to see when the death-by-synth starts.

Avoid Avoid Avoid.

Seems you had a bad night, but giving this place a 1/10 shows your bias and bitterness. Relax, give it another go and go easy on the personal insults to the performers. Try The Ritz next time where you'll get the 5 star service for 10 times the price and a 1/5 of the portion sizes.

The only place to enjoy real Galician food in London. Also serves good choice of other Spanish dishes at very reasonable prices.

I am from Galicia so sometimes I am too harsh on Spanish Resturants but this place is amazing. The food is great and very reasonably priced. The service is excellent and the atmosphere very authentic.

I absolutely loved it. I had a great time and I am definitely coming back.
