Yum, yum, yum! You absolutely must visit and will not be disappointed. Service was impeccable, food was incredible and really tasty and it was all very reasonably priced.

Such a nice atmosphere and decor with a good large selection of tapas all well prepared. We were spoiled for choice. Toilets could do with a little more attention though - no soap and paper strewn around.

All of the tapas that we tried were delicious. We also tried a sampling of the ports which was fun. Cozy but not cramped atmosphere. Really enjoyed it before getting to our show.

I concur with the other replies, call them. It is a fairly small establishment and if I recall they do not take bookings for small parties, but the staff are very helpful so ring them.

It's a Spanish tapas place. So the menu has plenty of variety. Vegetarian wise I would stay the Mushrooms stack, and eggplant slada would have to be up there. Not sure if you also eat fish, but if you do there are loads to... More
