It was our first visit, the staff were friendly and helpful. We both shared a selection of vegetarian tapas dishes which were excellent. Highly recommended.

Only popped in for a mid morning coffee and managed to beat the rush. Coffee excellent and what food we saw served looked very appealing

Very cosy tapas bar with a good selection of drinks. Informal dining a very welcoming atmosphere. It was very busy at the time we visited, and the bar was just offering tables to walk ins (no booking possible). This is a great place to eat.

Had walked passed this venue the day before. There was such a hubbub and sound of fun that had to visit the next day. The interior reminded me of a trendy Barcelona bar and is very interesting. The menu is not huge but is great....A choice of homemade pizzas, tapas and nachos. We shared a pizza and salad, delicious! Staff friendly and informative, reasonably priced food all in all a great visit. Would recommend if in Keswick. Not sure of they take bookings but people were queuing.More

We popped in as they don’t take bookings and had a drink while we waited for our table. Ordered a pizza and some tapas and every single dish was perfect. Best meal of our 7 night stay in Keswick. The downside was sitting next to...a table of 3 men and 3 dogs who were drunk (the men not the dogs) so we had to put up with their dogs trying to pinch our food and basically wafting their dog hair around. The dogs were also sat on the chairs/benches which I do think is a no even if dog friendly. . . I get the lakes is popular with dog owners/walkers but this is top notch food with great service so if you don’t mind dogs, not a problem.More

Absolute gem of a place - staff really friendly, service really good - food absolutely delicious! Highly recommend! We were only in Keswick for one night but if we were to visit again this would be the only place we would eat - we even...tried to persuade the owner to expand to where we live and also asked for one of these in Kirkby lonsdale :)More

Absolutely amazing, great atmosphere, very Spanish café style buzz and friendly staff. Home made pizza bases with the best toppings (including the soft yolk fried egg, new one on me but great 👍) and fresh tapas dishes to die for. We all thoroughly enjoyed our...first visit send will definitely be heading back!More

Excellent bar with great buzz. Plenty of different beers on tap and bottle and reasonable wine list. Simple well prepared tapas are enjoyable and good value. Well worth a visit.

We stumbled across the square orange on our final night of a fabulous week in Keswick, we were absolutely devastated that we didn’t find this place earlier in the week. Every single this about this place is absolutely amazing, we had tapas to start, the...meatballs and pigs in blankets were sublime, the pulled pork nachos were out of this world. We shared a couple of pizzas too that were amazeballs, all in all we’ll come back to Keswick just to eat here.More

There were a couple of small tables outside (when I visited) but if you want 4 adults and 4 dogs I'd ring the Cafe and try to book them.

Hi. We were there at the end of May and they did take-away then but I would suggest calling them.
