We came here as a group of 12 friends for a birthday celebration, we had a huge selection of tapas and as we were a large group we decided on dishes before hand and gave the list to the waiter on our arrival, the tapas was delicious and just kept coming which was lovely, the service was great and we felt well catered for as a birthday celebration, a large number of our group had not been here before and all have said they will return as it was so lovely.

Went for dinner and like so many other restaurants they start off so well but as soon as they get known the customer service goes down the drain! The manager was more interested in socialising at a table near ours- our waiter was on his phone while we were trying frantically to remind him we were still waiting for some of our tapas. When we finally did get someone's attention she got side tracked. This is the complete opposite to our previous times. Even when we voiced our dissatisfaction at the service it wasnt important enough to interupt the manager.

We came here for a friend's birthday and weren't impressed. We were really looking forward to the meal but it was a let down. From the outset they were difficult and tried to force us to order the ( expensive) and not very traditional set menu, which hasn't been agreed. There was then some negotiation and we got a few tapas dishes to start- mushrooms, chorizo, patatas bravas, crab cakes and olives. Starters were tasty but service was poor- had to ask for plates and ask for drinks. Main was paella which was very bland- one was over cooked and one was under cooked. I didn't complain at the time as it was my friend's birthday but thought it was shocking service. We certainly wouldn't return. It's a shame because other tables got much better service and food looked higher quality.

I've been in this restaurant twice with a friend who loves Spanish food. I'm Spaniard. First time was great, good tasty tapas, expensive, but we liked it. Second time the food was in a poor state, either old or carelessly prepared, we ordered almost the same tapas and we only enjoyed one out of five, and not much. We decided not to come back....
