This review is taken from the current (2013) edition.
Tinto Tapas Bar brings a welcome dash of Mediterranean sunshine to Battlefield Road, where the Victoria Infirmary and Langside College provide a steady stream of hungry punters looking for something informal, quick and inexpensive. Tinto delivers with a menu boasting no less than 47 tapas including the expected albóndigas and patatas bravas together with a few Spanish classics that are a little harder to track down in these parts – such as lamb and peppers stewed in Rioja, or salt cod with roasted garlic. Portion size can be variable here, with some tapas much more generous than others, but prices are a little below average. The best bet may be to choose from the blackboard, where daily specials reflect what’s in season and in the market. Lunch, pre-theatre and soup and sandwich deals are all decent value.
- High point: Seasonal specials on the blackboard
- Low point: Unpredictable serving sizes
The Tinto Tapas Bar is run by Proprietor Gordon Craig along with his staff of young (but experienced) waiters.
It is the only authentic Spanish Tapas Bar in the area with a seating capacity of 50. It offers an extensive range of dishes which when accompanied with a glass or better still a bottle of wine, of which they also offer a good selection, makes for a really enjoyable meal. It has been visited over the past few months by Joanna Bythman of the Sunday Herald, Alan Brown, Sunday Times and Ron McKenna, Saturday Herald all of whom gave it a an excellent review saying it was lively, authentic and well worth a visit.
It is ideally situated on the Battlefield Road, Shawlands with the bus route outside the door and Langside Station within walking distance. As it is close to Hampden Park it is ideal for a pre Concert/Match meal. It becomes very busy when a venue is on and it is advisable to book to save disappointment.
