Looking for somewhere to eat on a Sunday evening, we came across this busy tapas bar in the centre of Hay-on-Wye. Although very busy, a small table was found for us. The menu was long and varied, with a wide range of specials. Highly recommended.

Visited for lunch, a very warm, friendly welcome and they even lit the fire for us. Lovely tapas - especially the calamari ( which they do in gluten free flour ) and good value white house wine (£14 a bottle). Will definitely be back.
