This is a must visit if you want tapas while visiting Keswick. The rose wine is very nice as well. You can't book and need just to turn up. Be prepared to wait for a table but well worth it

We had a fabulous chilled out evening. Enjoyed the tapas (padron peppers, anchovies, feta, vine leaves, lamb kofta, manchego, potatoes bravas, chorizo in red wine) and some Spanish wine. Great atmosphere, friendly staff

Popped in on Saturday evening and managed to get a table without booking. We had the tapas which was freshly cooked and delicious. They also do pizza which looked really nice too. A nice little bar with a lovely atmosphere
