This is quite a basic tapas restaurant in respect of appearance, General facilities and finesse. However not one to miss and one to defiantly return to. The food is excellent, not a huge choice but as all dishes are nice it makes it easier to...More

I actually found this restaurant via a Siri search in my iPhone and it looked promising. I must say the food was delicious, had a really nice atmosphere, and the staff were very helpful and friendly. I would recommend.

Our 4th visit in the last 3 years. Warm welcome on arrival, prompt service. New dishes on menu from last visit. Highly recommend the clams and chilled prawns. Old favourites still up to scratch (potatas bravas particularly hot which was good). Staff always smiling, helpful...More
