Fino is an upmarket Tapas restaurant situated in a basement just off Charlotte Street. Décor is stylish and service is very professional - not your average tapas bar. We had an early meal there one Friday evening, and really enjoyed the food - the experience was made even sweeter due to a special offer giving us 50% off the cost of our food.

There were a few tables occupied when we arrived at 6.30pm, and by 8pm the place was full. Just before 8.30pm the maitre de approached us and apologetically advised that they needed our table back shortly. That was fine by us, we were ready to leave, and if we had wanted to stay on we could have moved to the small bar area.

Favorite Dish: We ordered a very tasty bottle of rioja and spent some time trying to decide what to order - it all sounded good and it was hard to decide what not to order. In the end we had the following: Pan Con Tomate; Marinated Grilled Quail; Ham Croquetas; Arroz Negro; and the Spinach Tortilla. We loved it all, though the tortilla was particularly memorable.

Never being able to resist dessert, we ordered a couple of non-Spanishy options, the Donuts; and the Chocolate Fondant. The donuts were nothing special, but the fondant was really chocolatey good.
