The restaurant didn't register the booking and they had to sort me out a table last minute. The security guards outside were rude with the rest of the people joining after 9pm as they were forced to pay tickets.

    Food was nice, service wasn't amazing. They double charged me everything on the bill, charged me for a burger we ordered and never received, and shut the tab down at around 10pm whilst we were still drinking. They also forgot to deduct the deposit from the bill - which they only did after I pointed out all the above errors. I wouldn't recommend it as a restaurant but it is a great place for some drinks.

    We were greeted as we arrived but that was the high point.... We ordered our food which arrived fairly quickly but they got my starter wrong which took ages to be replaced. My girlfriend ordered the fish which when it arrived was deep fried and over cooked for her liking... We asked the waitress if that was how it was usually served... she said it was... maybe they should put that in the menu description... After we'd finished it took over 20 mins for our plates to be cleared...

    Not that great, there are definitely better places in Camden. We waited 50 minutes for food. If you were gonna make people wait this long, have the decency to offer bread or free table food. Small and overpriced portions. There were random other dishes in our food, if you were a vegetarian that definitely wouldn't be ok. kept missing dishes out. Waitresses weren't very attentive even though they weren't very busy. We had to just use plates they served the starters on even though they had 50 minutes to have given us some as it was a tapas dinner

    Saturday 20:15 March booked weeks priorI booked the Cuban for a birthday party for 16 people. I confirmed the menu choice one week in advance as requested and the number of definite attendance 48 hours prior to the date.[...]When we arrived we were not directed to the table and walked through the lower bar to try and find the stairs to the restaurant. A customer told us to use the lift which was at the front entrance but not clearly marked. No staff assisted us.The table was set for 14 despite the prior booking so I had to ask for more chairs and place settings which was embarrassingThe meal was booked for 20:15 and admittedly some were a little late due to traffic and not being able to establish the table whereabouts and arrived at about 20:40.Orders were eventually taken and starters were delivered around 22:00 by one waiter, who I must say was very pleasant and helpful.Starters: Buffalo mozzarella with pesto and cherry tomatoes– no pesto sauce was eveident and it was completely tastelessPrawns adequate was most of the comments, nothing special but edibleMain meal: There were not enough steaks left apparently as they had had a big demand in the day even though we had to choose the menu 7 days prior. So some people had to then opt for the rack of lamb Rack of lamb was four lamb chops with no meat and mainly fat, no roast potatoes as stated on the menu and the vegetables in season turned out to be a mushy solution of frozen vegetables buried underneath the "chops"Paella was reminiscent of Uncle Ben's rice with a few pieces of tiny Chorizo, tiny muscles and a spattering of baby octopus, the chorizo was tiny like the kind you get in frozen Iceland paella. It was served on a red hot skillet but even that didn't reduce the slop to paella. The two prawns in the dish however were strangely reminiscent of the prawns from the starter being much larger than the rest of the fish in the slop. In fact it was so horrible nobody could eat itWe complained and were told that if we wanted to see the chef he would tell us to xxx
