Went there with my wife for dinner. There was a line and we had to wait 5 min at the bar. The place was pumping. We ordered many dishes (which are quite small). Most dishes were a 10. The worst were 9s. We would gladly come for more.

Me and my boyfriend came here while on holiday and it was absolutely lovely. We spent a lot of time in Spain and love tapas for a meal. We had fun drinking wine and ordering all the small plates and he had the best prawns he's ever eaten! Really was a lovely time.
