Good selection of tapas. Very popular so booking is recommended. Only bottled beer available, but reasonable selection of wines.

It was a rather wet week day afternoon when my wife and I made our way to the Selsdon branch of Las Fuentes. Previously we had eaten at the Purley Restaurant and I was interested in finding out if they complimented each other. We sat at a table near the front window and, on glancing round, found that there were only two other customers, both seated in the other front window position similar to us. They had obviously enjoyed their lunch as they were laughing and chatting with the staff. The decor was similar to that of Purley, tiled lower walls and upper shelves lined with bottles of wine. No shortage of choice here then. We chose a bottle of Red Reoja to drink with our meal. I chose my favourite of grilled sardines whilst my wife enjoyed lamb chops, batas brava and beans. The food was excellent, the service very good and the wine made our journey worthwhile.

Visited once more on Saturday only to find once again that this restaurant never fails to disappoint with the staff offering us a 2 person table right near the noisy kitchen and close to the till/bread preparing area.
There were plenty of other tables free albeit set for 4 people. We did ask if we could move to one of them only to be told with a one word answer no and then the waiter walked off. Not good so we got up and left.
We have eaten here before and the food is always good but the staff are always moody and slow even then.
In comparison to its purley sister restaurant this one is poor.
We will not return here.

We had another great night at Las Fuentes Selsdon yesterday. The service may be slow but the food is well worth waiting for. This is a very popular restaurant and gets very busy. We cannot wait to return soon.
