This was the worst restaurant experience we have ever had, it would be zero if it was an option.The service was terrible multiple waitresses asked to serve us & not one of them did. Extremely disorganized & all over the place. We waited 1/2 hour for our food! Prior to that I asked when we will receive it & the waitress said it's coming & walked away. She didn't bother going to check why it was taking so long. We asked for our bill & the waitress walked away & started clearing tables & serving other people. That was the first & last time we will be going to this restaurant.

El Gordo was a lovely place to dine at with chatty staff members & a lovely ambiance. From the brunch menu to the drinks, everything was packed with amazing options. It serves a delicious brunch that keeps you full but not stuffed & their vegetarian options were not only flavourful but very appealing. I'd recommend, Portobello to any of my fellow vegetarians out there. It's a great place for a subtle family outing & a definitive rebook for a good way to start the day with some spice on a lazy afternoon.

Great service & drinks but food was really just Ok. Took the fajitas bavette/shrimps to share & the meat was very chewy & the shrimps were dry. Unfortunately the plate looked really sad & not at all shown on the website.
