we turned up late about 9pm on a saturday night knowing this place is always fully booked but took our chances. the guys were great and squeezed us in with no wait! The food was all incredible especially the chorizo which they flame cook right in front of you! and the Alioi with bread whilst you wait was delicious. Fair price and a little gem, will certainly be back!

Having lived in Spain for 5 years we really fancied trying this place. The menu of Tapas was extensive and varied with specials on as well. We were advised to order two Tapas each which we did. The food was very tasty but not spicy as indicated on the menu. We decided to order two more and we order the Gambas al Ajillo again but asked for it to have a lot more chilli and garlic but sadly it still tasted as there was no chilli in it. The rest of it was good apart from the pork skewers with paprika which were very tough. Would visit again but avoid those two dishes

Lovely atmosphere and a great selection of tapas. The slow cooked lamb from the specials board was beautifully delicious and melt in the mouth. Well worth it,

We visited here with our 2 little kids for their first experience of tapas and we weren't disappointed.

We called them quite late Friday afternoon and they were able to squeeze us in. We had a time limit due to another booking but it was enough for us and we didn't feel under any pressure.

They were great to advise us on the menu and were fantastic with the kids.

The food was delicious and the atmosphere was great. It's a small place but it was full and even had people waiting outside for a table which is always a good sign.

Make sure you book in advance and you won't be disappointed with your meal.

We were in Brighton for a couple of days and while looking around on our first evening, noticed this restaurant but it was fully booked. The next day we booked for the evening as we love tapas and the food was really good. Never knowing how large portions are we ordered 4 choices plus bread and olives. It was ok but if we visited again would order 3 between us as large portions. The staff were fast and efficient, could have been more talkative, but did not need to as the tip is included. Must admit if it was my restaurant I would expect more from staff, but they did their job as needed.
