    Absolutely love La Bonita but would love it even more if you would use Havanna club 3 years in your mojitos and not Bacardi, they just don’t taste correct with Bacardi. Other than that outstanding

    Staff were lovely, the main girl who served us was amazing. Very tasty olives, meatballs, tortilla and croquettes. Salad on tortilla was a little wet and crème brûlée was overcooked but drinks were lovely. Good choice of music and though loud not unpleasantly so. Great little spot for an easy night out 👌

    Food and service were excellent. Our first time here and we both really enjoyed it. Pity you cannot tip when paying by card as neither of us had cash, and service was top notch, but we could not leave a gratuity. Perhaps something to look into

    The customer service is fantastic! Smooth transition between courses and all done with a friendly face. The food was unbelievable and value for money is absolutely spot on! We were shocked at how many items we had for such a small bill and when I say every thing we had was to die for ❤️ Really comfortable and warm atmosphere. The owner was welcoming and asked every table for their feedback - no job too big or too small and helped the staff when it began to get busy - 100% will be our new go-to date night restaurant. Thank you! 😊
