An all round pleasent experience , pretty good in all departments. Service was fine , food was tasty , surroundings were pleasing and clean and I paid what I would expect to pay in that sort of establishment in Paignton. Give it a whirl !

Very enjoyable, if mixed quality, tapas dinner. The prawns, pork meatballs were very tasty whilst the chicken & chorizo was rather bland. The mussel dish was very, very tasty and I'd certainly go back just for that! Overall we enjoyed it.

Another decent find, we had 10 or so dishes, most old favourites we have had in Spain, all very good. Could not complain too much, food came out when ready, nothing was over cooked or cold. We left happy.
