Found this on our first visit to Northampton. Midweek lunch so very quiet, eating in the small downstairs area. The food was absolutely superb, the best tapas I have ever tasted. Cooked to order with lovely fresh ingredients and very tasty. Delicious haddock fishcakes were my personal favourites. Friendly attentive service. A great find. Highly recommended

Visiting Northampton for the first time we booked this restaurant because of the great reviews on Tripadvisor and it didn't disappoint. All of the dishes we had were delicious and all of the staff were so friendly and helpful - we had a really lovely evening.

We visited this restaurant last year for lunch. An ok meal, very tiny portions. Food was just ok, would not rush back. Friendly waiter, serviced was good.

Sublime dining out experience. Food is always authentic and extremely tasty. Staff were attentive and prompt. Owners a great guy, who actually visited our table to check that everything was ok. Music was a tad too loud, which made conversation a bit difficult, but apart from that slight niggle I can't recommend this restaurant highly enough.

We visited on a Friday evening and you have to book as it gets busy. There is a car park with 2 minutes walk. The restaurant has great decor and a welcoming feel. The food is excellent and good value too. The staff are very friendly and dealt with my sons food allergies expertly. Will definitely visit again soon!

What a place. This tapas restaurant has everything, a superb home cooked menu, good wine selection, tremendous atmosphere and brilliant service and hospitality. We were greeted at the entrance and immediately shown upstairs to our table and the authentic Spanish music was playing, starting our evening off on a high note. It was only 6:30, but the place already had... More
