Oh how I kicked myself... Living so close by and repeatedly driving past, despite the numerous good reviews here on Trip Advisor. Just didn't like the look of it from the outside, this simply goes to reinforce the old adage 'Dont judge a book by it's cover!' The welcome from Fernando is warm, the inside is a little quirky, the... More

Food great and traditional. Spanish owners. Free parking on site. Large portions, we ordered far too many potatoes. Sangria lovely, estrella on tap and a great coffee. Lovely cosy place and family run. When the diet stops will be back, even if only for a coffee.

Went with my son and girlfriend for a meal been before and loved it. Service always great food the best never tasted better. We all had Tapas could not eat it all so filling. The best is they serve quick and then leave you to enjoy your meal no rushing. Will be booking again in the near future.

Finally decided to give this place a go. Really kick myself for not going before. What a fabulous place. Traditional Spanish food, huge portions (some we took home). Paella and Tapas were wonderful. Comfortable and unpretentious. Will be going back soon!

This restaurant is one of our absolute favorites, run by a husband and wife team from Galicia in northern Spain. We love Spanish food and this is totally authentic. Unfortunately living in Chesire we cant patronize the restaurant as much as we would like but every visit has been memorable. For the the first time we strayed away from a... More

Dropped into the Embujo Spanish Restaurant on the way home from Norwich. Just tucked off the Acle straight roundabout headed toward Hemsby. Hadn’t booked but the owner quickly selected a table for us. Have been meaning to eat here for quite a while so we eagerly awaited the food. Ordered the Tapas as a matter of course and was pleasantly... More

Dont be put off by the look on the outside as... More

We discovered Embrujo in 2013 when it was next to the Stracey Arms Mill. Food was so fine and host so friendly we made a point of returning when on our next boating holiday in 2015 and found their new location at what was The Hermitage in Acle. We repeated the trip in 2016. Food is delicious. Helpings huge. Cost... More

Some of the dishes were about right but some of them could have been right out of the low end tourist spots of the resorts and not authentic at all. Nice quirky decor and wine list, car park and front entrance doesn't give best first impression. Let's get some suckling pig and more real food and serve it hot and... More
