Small and intimate but excellent tapas. Menu changes daily but all cooked fresh and very good. Wine is reasonably priced with a range at approx £17 . Good idea to book for the evening.

Really nice tapas dishes. Not necessarily traditional Spanish in either size (bigger) or flavor, but a nice variety of different things. Great for groups to share.

We've just been here for dinner and it was amazing! We selected 6 dishes (even though 4 were recommended for 2 people - we were hungry) and all of them were yummy! Thanks for a great evening :)

We found the food over priced for the quantity and the quality. The chefs peering out from the kitchen whilst we were eating was a little off-putting as well, I know they weren't busy when we visited - just one other table occupied (although we...More

There was 9 of us visited this small restaurant. The food was amazing! Really tasty. Good choice. Nice atmosphere! But it's not really tapas as the dishes are huge! If there were just two of you 4 dishes would be enough! The point of tapas...More

We serve the same menu throughout the whole day. They're suitable for light lunches, and also indulgent dinners. It all depends on how many dishes you order.

Our largest table would be 20 people, but there is also the option of a private hire for the evening then we could seat 25-30.
