I don't think there was a dish that we didn't like, the food came out super speedily, and even though it was a small restaurant and there was 7 of us, there... More

The food was delicious. There wasn't anything that we did not enjoy. Would recommend this one to everyone. Try a little bit of everything if you go in a group.

Have been here several times for 'date night', and have never been disappointed. Really lovely tapas at the expected price. Lots of variety - I don't eat meat - my boyfriend does, but he's happy to share veggie/fish dishes as there are plenty of of great options. Decent priced wine, friendly staff - the chef even revealed one of his... More

We ended up waiting by the bar at Carmen's tapas bar while having a beer, the barman was mega chatty and friendly and the manager kept us updated with the progress of the table for us to... More
