By contrast with much of Hay these days, Tomatitos is quite unpretentious and actually much more relaxing and enjoyable to visit as a result, the staff are all fully 'on it' and the food is tasty and good value - especially for Hay on Wye...!

We had a superb tapas dinner last night after hearing the restaurant recommended by our hotel. There was a good selection of meat and veggie dishes, reasonably priced and great portion sizes. The owners were extremely friendly and the place is clearly popular with locals which is always a great sign. It was already busy just 30 mins after opening... More

From the moment you enter the friendly reception, the hearty fire in the hearth, the smiles and wine and food make it a great night out, one we look forward to on our annual visit to Hay!

The restaurant was busy even on a cold October evening and we had to wait 20 minutes for a table, but were so glad we did. Excellent tapas backed up by great, friendly service, and very reasonable prices as well! Highly recommended.

This place was great. Food was great and good value for money. The staff were exceptional and I think the fact that the place was full of locals speaks volumes. Highly recommend you try it.
