Lovely restaurant and great ambience. Staff very friendly and receptive. Lovely Spanish beer. Would definitely recommend.

Lively restaurant with attentive service but extremely expensive for tiny portions [£6 for 4 anchovy half fillets - 'boquerones al vinagre' - is outrageous]. Quality of different 'tapas' varied - some good, some inedible and all expensive. Poor value for money.

What can I say...visited this restaurant following raving reviews from friends. Struggling to understand why...food was bland, sickly, tasteless. Left us feeling hungry we had to cross the road and have another meal at the opposite restaurant. Such a shame as the interior is lovely...More
