I love tapas and the guys from this place know how to prepare them. Well, all the food is pretty amazing and prepared with care and professionalism. It's not even expensive at all, moderate prices for delicious food is quite the good value.

This was our second visit to Subsolo for dinner, and we very much enjoyed the selection of tapas and flavour of the food. Wine and cocktails were delicious. Waitstaff were helpful. Atmosphere is warm and dim lit. Tables were far enough apart that you couldnt overhear conversations at neighbouring tables. Not too noisy. We definitely plan on visiting again.

The place and location is awesome. The vibe in this restaurant feels just right.

However the food was slightly disappointing.
We had the peppers for entree which were supposed to have some really hot ones but all in all we didn't even have one with a hint of spice.

The rest of the food was also a little bland and oily for my liking. We had the spicy potatoes (which again did not have a hint of slice) the vegetable omelet and the prawns.
The prawns were the definite highlight of the meal.

It's such a shame the food was not prepared with more love as I have been hanging to find a Spanish place that lives up to my memories of the food we would eat on our holidays to Spain.

That said maybe if you go you try the meat skewers. They looked awesome and everyone seemed to enjoy them. (I am a pescetarian so the meat was out)

We had a great experience here for dinner. Food was sensational but expensive and the staff where very accommodating. Was a little noisy as we had a group of 8 men near us but once they left it was a lot more pleasant. Room was dark and moody.

Popped in for a random lunch after a spot of shopping. The restaurant itself is pretty plush which isn't what I expect for tapas but the wine and food is A grade. Service is attentive and friendly - all in all a pleasant Spanish surprise.
