    Very welcoming and attentive service. Tapas were spaced out perfectly before our mains arrived. Ox Cheek, Chargrilled Chicken with side brocolini, ???? 1 tip; cold/windy nights- try not to sit near windows, slightly breezy, but , great view.. ???? Suggestion; maybe quiet acoustic solo Spanish guitarist in corner, or similar ‘background ‘ music to more of a warming atmosphere. ????

    Puerto is a hidden gem. The restaurant decor was stunning and the tapas delicious. Topped off by relaxing views of the waterway and boats. Staff was very attentive and service was quick.

    Wonderful setting on the river great food , relaxed atmosphere , tables spaced widely so not encroaching on other diners. Suitable for a quick drink and tapas midweek or lengthy relaxed dinner .

    Great service and atmosphere Food came out very quickly but was only just warm, not as hot as we would have liked. Chorizo dish and croquettes were our favourites. The pork belly was a little tough and lacked a bit of flavour.

    Disappointed first off when I ordered scallops for entre and got literally one scallop. Then ordered calamari with chorizo rice thinking it would be like a risotto but came out one little hood of squid stuffed and did not like that one bit. So I had churro for desserts and that was the best thing. Average food for rest of diners also and for what they charge!

    Nice place, limited selection of food, nicely cooked and presented, service very slow for drinks difficult to attract attention for extra drinks or water. Pleasant staff though.

    I like the idea of coming here, however, they seem to lack the basic requirements of running a restaurant. The tapas seems to be the best part of this restaurant, the main meals are not up to par, we were all expecting so much more - but we felt let down. May I suggest that there needs to be more flavor in the main meals, for the amount that we paid, we were not satisfied with the result. The surroundings are truly beautiful, I hope that our constructive criticism is taken on board, we will be back, maybe just for tapas & drinks. ??
