The restaurant is spacious, especially out in the courtyard at the back, and the tables are nicely set out with plenty of space between them. The service is excellent, even when the place is busy, as it was when we were there, The wine we ordered (red and white was good) and the two courses (starters and mains) we ordered,,... More

Good food and very hospitable. Traditional food, simple but good wine choices. Not for low budgets but worth every cent.

We sat in the dining area on the first floor, it was what you expect from a typical spanish restaurant, a lot of light, fast service and OK dishes. For me the starters where very nice, the fish I had tasted good. However some of my friends had meat and the difference between rare and well done be specific to... More

Visited one evening with colleagues. It is a very relaxe tapas bar. Service isn't amazing but it wasn't bad either, i suppose they just let you get on with your socialising! Nice decor. Menus only in Spanish so we took a guess and it was all very nice and very good value. Apparently it is very common to to get... More

We visited the restaurant the 27th of December 2014. We booked the Sancho Panza menu for 21 people, as we were there celebrating our annual Xmas dinner with our relatives (cousins). The food and service were really mediocre, but actually that was not the worst of it as 18 out of 21 people got ill of diarrhea the whole day... More

Perhaps it helped that a colleague and I visited with two Spanish colleagues but we received nothing but wonderful service, shared jokes with the waiters and had a brilliant time in this unique setting. The restaurant is HUGE. It just keeps going. Once you've entered, you see a seating area then out beyond is a courtyard with more tables. Then... More

We have now had three excellent meals over the last year. Can be very busy but the atmosphere is great and the service prompt despite seeming very crowded. Always best to book especially for public holidays and weekends, quieter midweek. Most of the year you eat in a large courtyard. When busy the waiting staff run between tables, but never... More

The interior courtyard dining area is very nice. We had the paella for our meal, which was authentic and tasty. The wine was great. The service was fair -- hard to get someone's attention at times. Their English wasn't too good and our Spanish not good, so that was a challenge. Earlier in the week we had walked in for... More
