Came over with my lovely husband to a nice atmosphere and AMAZING JUMBO RIBS. Also to find out by our waiter which convinced us to go to the Salsa and Bachata classes which they do every Thursday from 8-10pm. Will definitely be coming for more again!!! GREAT FIND IN GRAVESEND. Keep it up. P.S loved the scenery outside, made me feel away from Gravesend.

Thank Rickel d

My daughter booked this for 6 of us, when we arrived we had to wait about 3/4 hour for our table, once at our table we waited around another hour for someone to take our order and the another 1.5 hours for the food to arrive.
When it did arrive it was nothing spectacular.
We complained and said because of the time we had to wait we were not prepared to pay full price, nobody could seem to make a decision and we waited again.
Finally we had enough and i paid what i thought it was worth and started to leave, this had the desired result and the so called owner appeared.
He was very aggresive and wanted to call the police, i told him he was welcome to call the police but they would do nothing.
I finally managed to agree a price that we would pay that was 40% of the final bill, after i explained about the poor service and poor food.
Would never go again and they probably wouldn't want us back,if you like noisy overcrowded restaurants with bad service then this is the place for you.

Very reasonably priced lunch with the lunchtime deals. Two tapas and a soft drink for £6.95.

I can recommend the calamari and the prawns with alioli.

In the historic jail building in gravesend.

Family meal booked here on a Saturday evening for four. Asked for a cell but we were allocated another table not in a cell. This was ok, but not what I requested two weeks ago when I booked. Lovely decor and atmosphere with good music. Food delicious - we ordered 4 tapas to share (this was plenty) then three had fajitas and I had chicken with mango sauce and all were delicious. Our young adult kids both want to come back to this restaurant with us and both said will come back with friends so this is definitely a seal of approval!

We ate here a few weeks ago as a table of 4. The drinks arrived after the starters which is not good. No extra drinks where offered but we managed to flag someone down eventually, all the food was very tasty though. We didn't get offered the dessert menu and no staff passed by to ask (we were in a corner). In the end we just got the bill as it was past 11pm, by which point the staff were sitting down eating their own dinners at the tables by the exit door, not what I would call professional while there are still guests there. Writing this in hope they improve things, we will give them another chance as the food was good.

We regret that you wasn't satisfied with the service, we would like to apologize because here at Rico Sabor we take service as a priority, to give all of our customers a unique experience. Sometimes the bar can get very busy and can take slightly longer to make the drinks our kitchen works very hard especially with starters to ensure that they are delivered to the table within a suitable amount of time. We are very pleased that you enjoyed the food and we thank you for your review.

Regards Julian
