We popped in on a mid-week winter evening to review.

My date had already arrived and was tucking in to a glass of cava and waxing lyrical about how nice the waiter was. Soon after being seated, I concurred. Both the waiter and manageress were smiley, friendly and fully attentive.

Tapas Revolution is a spacious restaurant with a dining area as well as seats around the circular bar. Neon ‘Gin Tonic’ signs and cocktail specials on blackboards subliminally willed us to kick off with a cocktail (like we needed any encouragement).

We shared an eye catching and refreshing Sparkling Rose Margarita (Jimador tequila, Aperol, rose water and lemon sherbet, topped with raspberry fizz) and an exotic sounding and equally good looking Pimento & Madarin Daiquiri ( Bacardi rum, mandarin, melon and pimento dram shaken with caramelised pineapple and lime) which had a fiery kick to it.

Happy hour runs 5pm-7pm and you can get 2-4 -1 on classic cocktails. We noticed a couple of people stock piling at it neared to 7pm. Good work!

As my date was a veggie, we chose a good spread from the non-meat tapas section to include berenjenas fritas – crispy fried aubergine with spiced honey & thyme dressing; empanadillas – spinach, pine nuts and goat’s cheese parcels served with onion and saffron marmalade; ensala da de tomato con queso de bacra (red and yellow goat’s cheese, olives & red onion salad) which was lovely and fresh; and paella de verdures (classic saffron rice with seasonal vegetables), this surprised me in being my favourite dish, the well cooked risotto rice was hearty and warming.

I managed to sneak a bit of red meat in and tried the special of the evening  – pork belly, which arrived in tender cubes covered in a punchy and rich spicy sauce.

Our waitress recommended a lovely Rioja (Tobia Rioja Crianza 2011 Rioja)  to go with the meal, it was full in flavour and strong enough to hold its own amongst all of the sweet hints thrown into the dishes.

To finish, we shared a fully decadent Espress Blanco Martini (Veterano brandy shaken with espresso, milk, dark chocolate liqueur, Kahlua and Frangelico) – WOW, I would return to Tapas Revolution just to have a couple of these at the bar.
