The service was outstanding.. very attentive without being annoying. Some of the best service I’ve experienced actually.
I tried sea bass for the first time and Leicester Square Kitchen made sure I will try it again. It was delicious.
My partner and I decided to come into London before we have our second child and we never go out again! We didn’t regret having our last meal of freedom at Leicester Square Kitchen... we had a great time... thank you.

If you like your tapas spicy in upmarket surroundings, then you'll enjoy the experience here. Service was very attentive and our waitress took time to explain the menu in detail. Would definitely visit again.

Great food and a good choice of vegetarian or vegan options. However, it would be great if the vege choices were increased further. All dishes executed superbly and delicious. We were initially offered a high mini-round table opposite the DJ, which was both noisy (Saturday evening) and the table too small. We asked if a better table could be offered and were told they would try but were very busy. True to their word, their manager came round a few minutes later to confirm they were looking for alternatives and, within 10 minutes a better table found. Our waiter Gaetano(?) was brilliant too.

A unique flavor (Peruvian-Mexican) tapas dishes. Flavorful and innovative dishes. Gaetano, our waiter, was great. A little loud, but overall a place that we'd look forward to returning to when we're back in London.

The only reason I wouldn't recommend this restaurant is to make sure I can book a table next time. From the warm welcome and attention of our host Mario to the delicious food, it's a really great place. I was especially impressed by the trouble that Mario took to check the dishes for me with respect to coriander leaf to which I'm allergic (I know, everyone says go on, you just don't like it but you really don't want to see the effect!) including offering to prepare dishes especially without it. And if you've never has a pisco sour, theirs is authentic and delicious. Enough said, great place but please don't book it out when I want to go again...which will be soon!

Food was ok nothing special, majority of dishes were spicy so avoid if your not a fan of spice and chilli. Whilst service was attentive it felt a little pretentious. Overall was ok but I wouldn't return.

We loved the food, the little different dishes are ideal for sharing and tasting and are interesting to sample. The dishes taste great with a perfect mix of hot and spicy!
The service is great: friendly and attentive and we had great fun talking to them and get recommendations
Due to the location on Leicester Square it is very popular so we recommend booking in advance.
Definitely would come again!

Amazing service, ambience and location is perfect. Unfortunately the pre-theatre menu is terrible. Salads were overdone with pepper, spices, etc. Except for the ribs, everything else was far too spicy, with nothing else really on offer to balance it out. We eat out in London quite a lot and this was a letdown.

Food was well cooked and presented, but surprisingly lacked any excitement. Loved the music, but it was too loud to talk! Tables are too small for the tapas style dining as the dishes all came out together.
