    My first visit to Tapas Revolution Lunch with friends… we chose the deal offering 3 dishes and a drink for £18. The food was OK but nothing special - I’ve had move interesting tapas in other local eateries. The service was desperately slow and the team were somewhat disorganised… perhaps that will improve over time. Would I eat there again? Yes, if I was with someone who particularly wanted too, but there are lots of restaurants in Festival Place offering a tastier lunch at a good price.

    The food was delicious but there were two items missing. Because the tapas comes out a few at a time over an extended period we did not notice that not everything had been delivered until over 30 minutes in. We decided we already had enough and had our bill reduced rather than insist on having the missing food.

    Delicious food, lovely, efficient staff, and those are the really important things. Minor quibbles in that the table allocated was a little small for 4, and it is a bit pricey!

    we went at lunch time on a sunday wasn't very busy, didn't feel very Spanish but lovely looking, and staff were great. food all hot and tasty and enough to choice from. mocktails were a great size and also tasted good. we shared a table pud between 4 of us and it was plenty for us all to taste and have a little sweet after.

    We thoroughly enjoyed the food, looked after well, struggled a little to hear each other as noise level but was very busy. The food comes out as ready, not necessarily all together, this was ok for us, although I think this may not be ok for some particularly if not expecting this.

    Service and food was excellant. Good value for money as we had a 20% off welcome offer and arrived before 6pm, We were also lucky to have dined there whilst Omar Allibhoy was present he even said hello to us. which made our experience extra special!

    Very disappointed. Booked for a birthday meal. Had tried facebooking, phoning (10 attempts!) and sent an email with no response! Understandably they were closed for the queen's funeral, however they did not try to contact me until half an hour before the booking, when we were already on the way. When we arrived, the staff did not get out of thier seats, only shouting that they were closed. There was no apology for not letting us know, nor did they offer to book us for when they were open. Luckily, five guys across the street was open and delicious.

    Overall the experience was ok but we definitely wouldn't rush back. The service was quite good and we tried the white & red sangria which were both lovely. However, the food was average at best. We had a few tapas plates to share which weren't horrendous but the paella was probably the worst I've had and it's apparently "cooked to order".

    Food are ok. Staffs are polite and accomodating. Food prices are expensive compare to the portion being served. So if you have a family of 4 (2adults and 2 kids) and you want to be content, prepare £130.

    Service of food very poor. Ordered bread and olives to start. These came after we received our 3rd tapas plate. Ordered 5 tapas dishes and a position of fries. We expected these to all a once instead they came one plate at a time the fries being the last. They need to sort the kitchen out to give better service.

    I have been here twice now and both times a couple of the Tapas dishes were either luke warm or bland in taste, or in the case of our second visit the chorizo was way over cooked and hard. Way overpriced as well! It should be the customer’s choice to leave a tip and not to have the service charge automatically on the bill. I would recommend getting your chefs trained a little more on the flavours of Spanish food and ensuring the food is hot.

    This experience was extremely disappointing and overpriced for what we received. The food was ok but nothing amazing. However, the menu is short and when we arrived 5/6 items were not available when we ordered the canarian chicken we were told they didn't have it then our waitress came back and said they had received this morning but decided not to prep it and it would take an hour to receive. It took almost 20 minutes from when we arrived to be served and then a further 20 minutes to get only 4 simple drinks. The service was extremely slow and a far cry from what was advertised online, they mixed up our tapas and fries orders plus the tapas did not come out together. Th two steaks we ordered were vastly different with one very fatty and thrown on the plate and one cooked well and nicely plated. The mushrooms with the steak were stone cold and soggy suggesting they had sat for too long and the plates were cold. The paella was good but they did not set up crockery and cutlery before bringing the paella out, this was extremely backward. On the drinks menu, there was San Miguel draft offered but they did not have this facility onsite. There was multiple staff on that evening but service was slow when they was only 2 larger tables and 4 tables of 2. On multiple occasions I saw staff stood in plain site with backs to customers and oblivious to those who needed service and most of them looked like they despised being there, this was not very welcoming or giving a positive atmosphere. The restaurant lacked any ambiance, there was a lack of music to add to the atmosphere and it felt dead inside. This was extremely disappointing especially as we were out for my daughter's 21st birthday and this was such a let down. The fact that on the bill it implied that service was not optional and at 12.5% for essentially no service was abysmal. When the manager came over she did not even try to discount our meal or understand our complaints about our evening.

    Quite a few menu items were unavailable, which they did warn us before seating us. The food was mostly very good. The sangria was mostly ice though and for £20 we got 4 small glasses from the pitcher.

    Ludicrously expensive. Wine £37 a bottle and awful quality.waitress dropped a tray of drinks on us on arrival. Lots of choices on menu off which shows the food isn’t fresh. Cramped tables where space could be improved by reducing bar area size. Little in the way of soft furnishings to absorb the noise. An actively unpleasant first experience. Will not go again.

    Half the menu wasn’t available and staff (bar one) didn’t seem to care. Was about 15/20 people in there when we went so no excuse really. Such a shame as was looking forward to visiting and left it a few weeks to visit in the hope any teething problems would have been ironed out. Food that we had was good however would have booked elsewhere had we been informed prior to arriving of the issues on Saturday early evening.

    Food was ok. Only had one beer on tap. And when we ordered 3 small plates they all came out separately so I had to wait while my wife ate. We will not be going back. Really disappointed.

    Not a great experience on a Saturday afternoon, lots of items not available on the menu. First two dishes came out cold and had to go back and the calamari was really bland and was like eating rubber. I was really looking forward to a nice Tapas experience and this place fell way short, such a shame. Our server was pleasant enough but no one really seemed interested to the point that we had to take our food back to the kitchen because it was cold, it seemed that once it was on your table you could not get their attention again.

    We really enjoyed our first visit though it was a pity that at least 4 of the menu options were not available when we came. However, overall it was very good. Nice to have such a different dining option in Basingstoke...keep up the good standard and you should thrive.
