We had a meal with family, including young children. We all had tapas - the unlimited menu is amazing value - including the children as there is a special menu for them. This was great as they got to try different things rather than fish fingers or whatever. The food was delicious and we tried loads of different dishes -... More

We opted for the unlimited tapas option and were not disappointed. A great variety of tastes was on offer providing a fusion of flavours for all. The meatballs, aubergines, chicken and nachos were our favourites. Having sampled all we perhaps might have planned our combo's better e.g. having the paella with the meatballs and or chicken. The layout in rooms... More

We were here on a day trip and noticed the restaurant as we walked up the hill. The menu looked really inviting so after deciding to hang around until opening time, we rang to see if there was a table available. Luckily there was and I'm glad we booked as other parties who arrived later were not so fortunate. We... More

We recently had a meal in this lively bar. We booked beforehand as we wanted to go on a Saturday night, and I'm glad we did as it was busy when we arrived. The staff greeted us and showed us to our table, which was in a room off the main restaurant. Apparently, some people request this table, but we... More

Absolutely amazing and incredible service. Food and beverage were impeccable and world class standard. A great night out, one of the best choices of dining and wining-in a while. And got to mention the Lady chef 👩‍🍳 is simply brilliant, takes pride of hers nutritious/delicious, freshly prepared tapas, which choice and quality I didn't experience even in Sitges/Barcelona!!

This is now the fourth time we've visited this restaurant and it's certainly worth the hour drive to get there. We've gone for the all you can eat tapas menu every time and it's simply delicious and great value for money. We are always welcomed with a warm smile from Clive and the team. See you again in a few... More
