Know that it is not a 100% Spanish restaurant. The waiter insisted when we got there that it is a "Catalan" restaurant. Meaning Spanish-French from the region. Don't expect a pure tapas place either (although it offers some). It is a nice restaurant, a tad pricey but in line with the area. Good food / wine. Better to book a... More

The two of us visitited the place just last night. The atmosphere and staff are nice indeed, however the food is just an average. Tapas size are reasonable but somewhat the taste could be improved. Probably will search another place once fancy Spanish food.

I have been here many times with friends and family and some of these visits have been for special occasions. While they do tapas very well their forte is paella, particularly the seafood paella though be aware that paellas need to be ordered at least a day in advance. They have a main restaurant room and next door a wine... More

Well, it's tapas, it's good, there is plenty, the staff is great. It the ideal place to take your friends. Parking at night isn't an issue as it is opposite the supermarket. Not out of this world, but I would happily go again.

A small restaurant but worth a visit if you like Tapas. The company owns the restaurant and the wine store next door so the wine with Dinner is pretty reliable. Price is quite reasonable....three of us ate for less than €80 including drinks.

Catalán and Spanish restaurant in Waterloo, serving traditional and high quality food. Excellent for a romantic dinner or groups of friends. Service level is good and the setting is intimate and cozy. You cannot also order food for take away, which we did for a party at home once. Great wines and a delicious menu.

My wife and I enjoy coming here. The atmosphere is fun, wine selection is good, and the service is friendly. We enjoy the food. Not the best tapas we've ever had but for Waterloo we haven't found anything comparable yet. We keep coming back.

As we arrived in Waterloo on a Tuesday night, not many places were open, But this place was. A nice atmosphere as you walked in. We had bread as a starter and ordered 7 tapas between the 2 of us, and all were very good. Order for drinks and food taken, and food delivered without waiting any length of time.... More

We went back to this restaurant after a couple of years and were frankly very very disappointed. The level has dropped to Lunch-Garden-food quality at prices of Villa Lorraine. Although the staff tries to be friendly, what you get in your dish does not match with the level of pricing on the bill. Even worse, when you order a dessert,... More
