    Perfect atmosphere for valentines, love heart balloons and roses for the ladies! Staff were very friendly and helpful. And then there’s the food, Wow so tasty and fresh , lots of mouth watering flavours especially the fish cakes, duck and lamb skewers, cannot wait to return for more deliciousness as there is plenty of options on the menu! Perfect valentines ❤️

    Lovely friendly staff, imaginatively different tapas and terrific value. Located in the Custard factory complex you can park in the streets nearby for free at night too.

    Although difficult to find as the area is currently under design, the restaurant was a terrific discovery! The food was delicious. An original Mediterranean themed menu, a great selection of cocktails and beautiful decor upon entering. The waiter was a pleasure to speak to and was very accommodating, I was unfortunate in finding out his name but he was a young gentleman, with a beard, I'd like to personally thank him. I will definitely be returning.

    We came to this restaurant as a result of TripAdvisor reviews. A stroll out of the city centre to Deritend. It’s currently surrounded by scaffolding so you may miss it initially- it’s in the corner. The food was great; tasty and promptly served.

    Thursday night, wife, self and student son (his birthday). Not busy - but really good relaxed atmosphere. 2 staff that evening both warm and friendly. Food really interesting, varied, and high quality. And BYOB makes it extra good value! Personally I wouldn't regularly go for tapas, but as something a bit different, it was a real hit! Highly recommended. Only slight negative - almost late cos hard to park, and harder still to find even when we were within 80 yards - but maybe I should have read their directions, huh? Still, had a great evening!

    This dimly lit, atmospheric restaurant has fantastic interior design making it a delightful place to have a meal. The range of tapas options on offer is exceptional, all of which we tasted were tasty making for a great group meal experience. The restaurant is BYOB making the final bill smaller than you would expect from such a restaurant. The playlist is also cracking.

    Everything about our evening at Rico Libre was fantastic! My family and I were meeting in Birmingham and I had previously been to Rico Libre and absolutely loved it! Once again, the food was amazing, the service was fantastic, and the atmosphere was great! The 10 of us loved everything about our evening, (bring your own booze was a great element!) the Christmas spirit was very fun, the whole restaurant was singing and enjoying themselves. Thank you very much, we will be back!

    Myself and my family visited mid week, we had been to the old premises previously and personally we loved the rustic worn feeling that it had. The new premises are new and modern and in a great location. We received such a warm welcome from the staff and not just because we were returning customers. The service was quick and friendly just like it has always been. We ordered many dishes to try and all of them were of such a high standard, beautifully presented and gorgeous to taste. In true tapas style each food item is delivered to your table as soon as it is ready so you get dishes at different times. The duck and lamb dishes in particular were a favourite for us all, actually so were the patatas alioli and garlic and chilli prawns- literally everything that we had, we loved. We will definitely be returning again, Rico Libre is without a doubt one of the best places in birmingham that we have dined at, you can’t go wrong with gorgeous food for such reasonable prices.

    Only go to Birmingham once or twice a year and always book Rico Libre for a meal. The food is fantastic,the service is great and you can take your own wine,WITH NO CORKAGE CHARGE!! Go to Spain regularly and this is as good as any tapas bar in Spain. Had 8 tapas plus 2 bread and took 4 bottles of wine for £58, WOW, what good value. Am shortly going to book again for next JUNE 😁👍

    Had been to the previous site with my sister & thought it was great, so we went back for our Dad’s 80th birthday. Food was just as good as were the staff & the atmosphere. My brother in law was impressed by the goat curry. Very reasonably priced for a party of eight.

    Went here on Saturday night with friends. Had an excellent choice of Tapas for quite a reasonable price. Bring your own alcohol as they don’t have a drinks license

    We were in Birmingham for a weekend city break (having never visited Birmingham before) & wanted somewhere good to eat. We read the RAVE reviews on line and the advice to book well in advance so that's what we did. We cannot articulate what an incredible place Rico Libre is. From the genuine warm welcome we received from Vis and the restaurant's owner to the delicious food and electric atmosphere. We felt like old friends when we left. Nothing was too much trouble and we could see that many of Rico's customers were regulars from their interactions with the staff and owner who was SO lovely and made time to speak to everyone personally. We live near London and commented that we really wish we had somewhere like Rico Libre near to us. If we did it would be our favourite place to go for great food,great vibes and great times! We were meeting friends the following evening and decided to ask if they had a cheeky table for 4.....we were lucky and got an early booking for 6pm. Our friends are locals but had never been to Rico Libre before,they were however, as impressed as us and said they would definitely be going back. There is no alcohol licence at Rico but this is not an issue at all....just take your own and there is no corkage fee! A simply amazing dining experience in every way. We loved it.. worth searching for as it's a bit 'off the beaten track' but once discovered we guarantee you will fall in love with Rico Libre just as we did. Going back home today but we will definitely be back......to the wonderful city of Birmingham and also to the vibrant Rico Libre. Looking forward to it already 💜

    We had heard positive reviews about Rico Libre and so decided to pay it a visit. It is well placed within the Custard factory. The place has a relaxed feel and the food was delicious. We really enjoyed the duck on the specials board. Also as it is byo it is an incredibly reasonable night out! Will definitely be returning.

    We found this place after reading excellent reviews on trip advisor. We love going for tapas and this place did not disappoint. Food was very tasty and reasonably priced, BYOB meant we saved money on drinks too. Lovely little restaurant tucked away near plenty of other bars. Staff were super friendly and helpful too!

    Such an amazing place! We came for a work group and I had a feeling it was going to be good, it surpassed all expectations. A really fun night out with buddies, bring some good Rioja and plenty of it. The guys asked us to move tables to make way for a bigger party, this is great. The more the merrier atmosphere. I loved it. Sorry, no pictures- best dishes... spicy pil pil, calamari croquettes are amazing, pork belly. Vegan = Spanish ratatouille, Aubergine and patatas bravas.

    Me and the wife headed down as they've just moved to Kanteen in the Custard Factory! Food was exceptional! That pork belly was so soft with a lovely crisp on the outer! Lamb chops were real special, just couldn't fault it! Calamari batter could have been a little thinner but was still bloomin lovely! Would 100% recommend and will definitely be heading back soon!
