We had a large party but the staff were attentive and friendly, nice atmosphere, decent prices and the food is good. My only complaint is that my steak was a little over cooked, however it was still lovely and we really enjoyed our night.

Been many times before but this time it was not as good. The service was great. We ordered the food and although nothing wrong with it, the plate presentation is not brilliant. The hake was huge and filled a plate but could have been trimmed...More

Thought we'd try El Prado again hoping that they had updated their sauces but afraid to say no, still practically everything is with wine and garlic sauce and it's so bland. Started with scallops for myself and king prawns for my wife which where excellent...More
