The restaurant itself has an authentic Spanish vibe but is quite small with Approx 7/8 tables, while dining we were the only table the entire time but I think the tables are spaced far enough apart for it not to feel cramped if full.

Had an enjoyable evening here. Dishes included fried chorizo, cod balls, hake, prawns, spinach with eggs, patatas with tomatoes. Reasonable wine list and friendly staff. On the down side, bring a coat and keep it on as ambient temperature on the low side.

Very small restaurant but so authentic, really lovely atmosphere, and the food was gorgeous! The staff were very friendly and even took their... More

Small and intimate with very fresh, very tasty food. Feels like we travelled through a portal and arrived in a quaint spanish taverna when we walked through the door. Highly recommended.

We love this resturant. Have been going there now for a a few years. Absolutely delicious food served fresh. We try hard not to have the Paella, but can never resist. It is the best I have ever eaten and one I often try hard to emulate at home. Make sure you book even if you just phone in the... More

Come here fairly often, food is always lovely as well as the setting. Proper authentic Spanish tapas and very good value for money! although it is a small place tucked away, it is always busy and the food is unbelievably good, waitress is a little bit slow and not very observant but other than that the place is a hidden...

The place itself I've walked past a few times, however from now on I will most serinatly not. It was without doubt the best tapas I have ever eaten in my life, the portions were amazing I highly recommend the beef in red wine. The fish paella came next which was shared between 3 people it was the perfect amount.... More
