We ate at the bar as it was fully booked. The service is great Food is delicious in general but it is so loud that when we left we were tired of trying to hear each other.

Went with my husband on a recommendation from our son. Great atmosphere, fab Gingria, wonderful choice of tapas & staff could not have been better. We will definitely be back. Not too many tables, so you need to book.
