A craving for tapas on a Friday night was answered by a flip through the Entertainment Book and a quick, last minute booking for a table at Spanish Terrazas.
I booked the same day, for 7:45pm and the guy must have misheard me because we rocked up right on time only to see that they had wrote 7:00pm in the book! Luckily it wasn't a problem at all and we were seated straight away.
Since it was a Friday night they had a band playing
Orders were quickly taken, except there was a slight glitch with my drink - it took forever to come out, pretty much half way through the tapas, but they did give me a warning beforehand. Perhaps they had run out of an ingredient and had to go buy some more? I was glad they actually let me know though and I was happy to wait.
Chicken chorizo - very tasty and moreish
Fried calamari - this was only OK, the calamari wasn't as tender as they could be, I think because the pieces were quite big, I had to cut mine up to be able to eat it. The batter was nice and crunchy, not too thick, but I don't think I'd order this again - I'd rather try the other items on the menu!
Garlic prawns - would have loved some bread to mop up the garlicky oil/sauce. Mmmm
Potatoes Aioli - Love potatoes and love aioli so this was a winner!
The drink finally makes an appearance - Strawberry Margherita
A main was also ordered, a bit of a "safe" choice and probably an odd dish to order at a Spanish Restaurant (which is the price you pay for dining with fussy people) but the steak was quite tender and nice. Nothing different to what you would get at a pub though.
I had food envy as I saw the seafood paellas being carried past and almost every surrounding table had one. Will be back to try that.
Overall, not a bad place to grab some tapas with friendly service. Especially with the discount! They didn't even bother to scratch off the number off the Entertainment Card (yay!)
