Visited here saturday evening. We took 6 different tapas plates which was enough for two hunry people. Pork belly and lamb pasties were best ones.

Been here the last couple of years for my birthday. Always good food, great wine selection and magnificent company always helps. We always have a great time and the service is warm/friendly without being too in your face. And the atmosphere is always a buzz. Would recommend.

Dined here with a big group on a Friday night for a Xmas function. We had a set menu which was a selection of tapas followed by a choice of main. I was a bit apprehensive about this as I'm coeliac and vegetarian so thought there would be limited options. The waitress looking after our table was actually wonderful and... More

Great food and service. We had a variety of tapas to start and none of them disappointed, they were all delicious. Main and desert also a winner. Look forward to coming back here again.

The Paella is the must try dish. But don't have any tapas beforehand unless you are a big eater. The service was great and the food is amazing, fresh and full of flavour.

A very busy restaurant with great vibes - extremely busy over pre Christmas due staff parties and friends get togethers. As usual the service and quality of food never falters
