Decided to visit for dinner prior to night out in Soho. Chose El Cantara due to good reveiws on Trip Advisor. Unfortunately there were NO belly dancers or entertainment on (as advertised) the night we went. Food: Some good, Some bad. Enjoyed prawn tapas, but other tapas were bland and the dipping sauce tasted like marmalade. Mains: Tagine was tasty, steaming hot and served with a free side of cous cous. Mixed grill served just warm, dipping sauce lacked any taste, side salad was a handful of lettuce. Service: Lacking. Waiter insisted we pay service charge when we complained. Asked for water three time before giving up. Alcoholic drinks took 30mins to turn up. Drinks: Over priced beer, watered down cocktails and Sangria. Ambience: Good. Low lighting, red walls and morroccan decore. Tea candles on the tables and interesting black soap in the bathrooms. Black soap was the highlight of the evening. Overall: Over priced. Won't be back
