We arrived early and were able to select the table of our choice. Drinks came quickly and, after we had placed our tapas order, our meal arrived within 10 minutes - excellent as these are prepared individually from fresh produce. The staff were efficient and friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. We were genuinely made to feel... More

It was amazing, we ordered a starter, 5 dishes from the main menu and a dessert between two, everything was delicious, the staff were very friendly and helpful, the music, decor and atmosphere were superb and I can't fault the place at all.

Great tapas with amazing flavours, I asked the boss to publish a recipe book, but he says he wants to keep his secrets! Fair enough ;-) Service is great. Got given complementary liquors even though we only had main course selection of tapas, not even coffee because it was a school night and our young son was getting tired, but... More

First time at this lovely tapas bar. Delicious food and very good service, with free liqueurs! Enjoyed the Spanish black pudding,pork belly, roasted peppers and gambas. Good wines too and very good value!

I visited on a Tuesday evening and was greeted warmly as I entered. The restaurant wasn't very busy but there were plenty of staff ensuring an attentive, friendly service and a relaxing meal. The portion sizes are quite large for tapas, but typically priced and therefore good value. The food and wine were all delicious, particularly the country sausage (like... More

The food was really great with a great variety of fish, meat and veg options. The service was really excellent and I will be back. Looking forward to a visit in a group to really get a sense of the variety of dishes.

Went here for the first time with work colleagues for our Christmas meal. The food and the atmosphere was amazing. It is traditionally Spanish and you could actually get carried away and think you were in Spain! The Spanish dancer and guitarist were so talented and really added to the atmosphere. There was a good choice of tapas including meat,... More

Went with a number friends from work for a little Christmas celebration. It was a wonderful atmosphere, staff were helpful and cheery. We had a selection of everything from the menu. All of which was delicious, especially the sea bass, belly pork and mussels (I could go on)! The house red was a Rioja and was very acceptable. It was... More
