Really enjoyed dinner here with friends. Extremely friendly and attentive service. Choice of tapas was excellent - we had 12 different ones between 4 of us and it was ample. Thoroughly recommend this place!

We did a bit of a taster session with all the local eateries whilst in the lakes and this was our favourite for wine! We sat back and relaved in a lovely atmosphere with a lovely red.

We thought of this as "the other" tapas place but I'd say it became "the" tapas place. We loved our meal, and our server! The food was excellent and priced perfectly. This was more about meat options for me, and I loved everything chorizo. The...More
