What has happened to this place since we visited last summer. Poor food, limited menu, unhappy staff. Not welcoming at all, looks very rundown.

We decided after our Tappas Meal to try the restaurant again for a day time meal. The atmosphere during the day lacks something not quite sure what though, I ordered a breakfast and my wife tried Eggs Benedictine. The food was good and priced reasonably but feel we would only use this place for tappas meals in the future or... More

I was recommended to go here and glad I chose it above a local pub. It had a very good selection of tapas to chose from and 3 dishes for £10 offer on. They were also selling a very reasonably priced real ale. I had a very tasty dinner and the staff were quick and attentive and very friendly. Will... More

We were impressed at the quick and attentive service and the choice of dishes of tapas. The food was tasty and the wine reasonable. Above all we felt it was great value for money. A nice touch were the fresh flowers on the tables as seems to us a sign of caring proprietors. We will certainly visit again.

A great little friendly restaurant will excellent Tapas. A nice relaxed atmosphere, nice and simple, clean with a great service. The food was excellent, plenty to choose from the menu, I think also great for vegetarians. We had a meal for two there and felt that we had found a little gem of a place.

We went with another couple for a tapas evening. The food was really tasty and generous portions and I can certainly recommend the trio of desserts - no half size portions here! The Bill (including wine and desserts) was £60 for four which is a bargain. Lovely staff and a friendly atmosphere.

As a group of 4 we visited on a Thursday evening on a Groupon Tapas deal--12 tapas dishes and 2 bottles of wine. This is certainly more a café than a restaurant but the welcome was friendly and the service helpful and warm. There was a choice of 12 tapas of which we selected 10 and all were well cooked... More
