The food was superb! the ambience was great. Only issue was there was an error and one dish wasn't ordered resulting in us waiting over 30 minutes for it. However, it was quickly removed from the bill, so all good!

We had a pleasant enough meal for two at Rioja, service was overall good and the food was tasty. The calamari was the best I’ve had for some time, with crispy light batter and fresh tender rings. The restaurant has a bustling, verging on noisy atmosphere even on a Monday evening and loud crashes of crockery and glasses from the bar jarred a few times.

Essentially, having eaten at a lot of tapas places around the UK the main sticking point for us was the pricing and what you got for your money. I’ll use Bar 44 - which has popular upmarket tapas restaurants dotted around Wales/Bristol - by way of comparison of another tapas restaurant pitching at a similar level. The level of cooking there is outstanding and even getting the most pricey tapas dishes, we would really struggle to exceed £40 outlay between the two of us on food alone.

The bread covered in tomato there is £2.50, in Rioja it’ll set you back £5.90. The patatas bravas £4 vs £6.20 at Rioja. The Bar 44 Quince & sherry glazed Duroc pork belly, apple ajo blanco costs £6.50 vs the Rioja pork cheeks with parsnip mash at £10.50.

The other issue for me is that the dishes were generally tasty yes, but quite perfunctory in presentation and content compared to other tapas restaurants I’ve eaten at. The pork cheeks were two small lumps of (very tasty) meat with modest amount of mash - fair enough that’s what it says on the menu - except for that outlay of £10.50, nearly the price of many a main course elsewhere . Six tapas and a bottle of white wine (at £28 and not properly chilled) set us back £75. As another comparison we recently had three courses, two double G&T’s and a half bottle of champagne at Number Sixteen restaurant just across on Byres Road for around the same total bill.

Overall if you’re looking for a decent tapas meal, then Rioja can satisfy but for us it’s just £2-3 a dish too much to recommend, especially when surrounded by the glut of Finnieston restaurants offering more for your money.

The service and food were both good however our tiny table was stuck right in the corner and we were quite literally pushed up against the till and the window shutters which was uncomfortable. The serving staff were (understandably) always at the till which ruined the atmosphere and left us feeling overlooked the entire time. One table for four would work better in this area, rather than two tables of two, to allow at least a small gap. It was a shame as we felt it ruined the evening overall.

Excellent food, excellent service. Portions were good too. We found it to be a bit too dark and this made reading the menu difficult. Perhaps a better choice of background music would have added to the experience. I would definitely recommend Rioja to friends.

Oh dear, we had been looking forward to eating at this restaurant for sometime but what a disappointment. We had the lunch menu, three tapas dishes and a paella for two to share. The service was fine, a jolly young lady who was attentive and helpful, as we were the only guests it was difficult to be anything else.
Now the food, our tapas arrive. The plates were large and the portions generous, unfortunately the contents were of a poor standard. One plate looked like the chef had been to the local supermarket and opened a packet, the next was calimari rings with grey mayonnaise, perhaps it was special but it looked strange. Our final plate was tomatoes on toast and that was fine.
The main course was seafood paella. This consisted of lots of rice in a red sauce that tasted suspiciously like Hienz tomato soup and some scattered squid and prawns.
I have eaten paella all over Spain and have never met this particular type of dish before. Perhaps we hit this restaurant on a bad day ( it was sunny) but we will not be going back again.

Tables close together and some tapas overpriced, but couldn’t fault quality of food or wine we had and the service was excellent.
Lovely to be asked when ordering a soda and lime- cordial or freshly squeezed juice .... nice touch!!!

Nice girl served us no issue there she was also very pleasant when I complained about a fish course and agreed to discount it from the menu.
My salmon tartar was okay, poor condiments not enough pickle or piquant sauce on the side to balance it out though. My friends croquettes were okay but nearly overcooked.
The problem was my mini hamburger (over cooked rubbery beef), very average greasy chips and worst of all the aforementioned fish dish. The hake was undercooked and flabby and the overall appearance of this £10 dish was awful.
Sorry Rioja

Absolutely Amazing food, authentic Spanish feel with tremendous staff. I would highly recommend Rioja. Best tapas I have had out with Spain. Very good value for money as well. We got the paella deal which included 3 tapas and were left stuffed! The cocktails are also worth every penny.

Lovely place , great service and ambiance! Only thing that id say is some of the prices of the dishes are too expensive for what they are and the portion size given. Tapas in this country always seem to over priced sadly.

Having been a few times this time was slightly disappointing. The food was not to the same standard and some of the recipes had been changed. The black pudding parcels had changed and were not as good as they were previously. The desserts were poor and the creme brûlée was served without the accompanying items outlined on the menu. The service as always was excellent but overall this visit was not anywhere near as good as previous ones. The cost of the meal was the same but the standard was not. Hoping this was just a one off.
