We were going to Tapas Revolution which is in the heart of the newly renovated intu Eldon Square and it was my Dad's first time there. He was really impressed with what they have done with all the new restaurants.
Tapas Revoultion also have restaurants in, Bath, Sheffield, Westfield, Bluewater, Birmingham and Shoreditch.
We were sat down at a table for 2 where we ordered drinks straight away, beer for Dad, dry white wine for me.
And just like any typical Spanish tapas restaurant, the dishes arrived at different times. So Dad and I decided to just share everything.
The first thing to arrive was the Tortilla de patatas £4.50, a classic Spanish omelette with free - range eggs, potato and onion. We shared this and it wasn't a long wait until the rest of the food started coming.
We ordered 2 plates of the Gambas al ajillo £7.95, tiger prawns with garlic and chilli oil. The prawns were still cooking in the oil when they arrived and they tasted so good. I was glad we ordered one each as I really didn't want to share these.
Next to the table was, ensalada de tomate con quest de cabra £4.95, a delicious salad of red and yellow tomatoes, with goats cheese crumbled over the top of olives and red onions.
I ordered the pan con tomate £2.95, toasted bread with garlic drizzled with tomato and olive oil. I'm glad I got some bread as I used it to dip in the oil that came with the prawns.
Dad got the pan de la casa £4.35, toasted bread, tomato topped with garlic sauce and serrano ham. Again Dad did exactly what I did and dipped his bread into the oil that cooked the prawns. It was delicious.
The table was starting to fill up but we still had room for one more dish.
And the final dish we ordered was patatas bravas £3.95, roasted potatoes with spicy tomato sauce and alioli. Patatas bravas is my favourite Spanish tapas dish so I wasn't going to miss out ordering this!
Our table was pretty full at this point so we moved our wine bottle to the spare table on our left.
But with a table full of food we were raring to get dug in and fill our hungry tummies.
I really enjoyed the food at Tapas Revolution and I really want to go back and take my Mam along too, I have also been telling everyone I've met since last Monday how good the food was at Tapas Revolution.
The staff were really friendly too, our waitress was Mireia and we also were talking too Julio both from Spain and were giving us lots of ideas on places to visit.
It was Monday night when we visited, there were plenty of tables available however I do think it would be a good idea to book if you were planning on visiting as the food was so good I can imagine Tapas Revolution will become an extremely popular place.
You can book a table to all their restaurants via their website.
I'll be back in Spain next week, I have a few work meetings there before heading to Marbella for a short break. I can't wait to have some more tapas.
