Got to be one of the best places to eat in Norwich. Super friendly, lovely atmosphere, impeccable service and all topped of with an imaginative, delicious menu. Eaten here many times and took my parents when they visited the area who loved it.

I love this little place and have been quite a few times. It's intimate (you need to pre-book), tapas style food is some of the best in Norwich and I love how original the cocktail menu is. Will be back again soon.

Small and intimate but excellent tapas. Menu changes daily but all cooked fresh and very good. Wine is reasonably priced with a range at approx £17 . Good idea to book for the evening.

Really nice tapas dishes. Not necessarily traditional Spanish in either size (bigger) or flavor, but a nice variety of different things. Great for groups to share.

We've just been here for dinner and it was amazing! We selected 6 dishes (even though 4 were recommended for 2 people - we were hungry) and all of them were yummy! Thanks for a great evening :)

We serve the same menu throughout the whole day. They're suitable for light lunches, and also indulgent dinners. It all depends on how many dishes you order.

There is no dress code, it's a chilled out vibe.

Our largest table would be 20 people, but there is also the option of a private hire for the evening then we could seat 25-30.
