An old Favourite I never tire of!

I have to admit that Deliciosa is a local for me, but I go there often and I never get tired of it. So I though it was worth explaining why for the benefit of others thinking of visiting. Despite my regular visits, the menu never gets old, it is adjusted seasonally but the stalwart favourites are... read more

Chef needs to work on his presentation skills. Tried the mixed mezze. All stopped together in the centre of a serving plate the buried in pizza bread. Beef dish was tasty and generous but lacked subtlety of true Tapas; in small tasty plates. Won't rush back.

Food was really nice except quite pricey for the portion size. Waitresses didn't seem to be bothered about the service however were polite when asked to order something. Nice atmosphere and food

This place really was amazing. The food was sensational - we had prawns, crispy duck and mussels all of which was perfect. We also had the recommended Pino Gris and it was incredible. It doesn't look like much from the outside but I would highly recommend this place.

Went for the first time on 21/12 - place was flat out so pleased we had booked. The food was explained as we didn't know what the system was. Picked four dishes between two of us - suggest that your choice should possibly be one dish each with one for the table - so we probably slightly overindulged - however... More

This is a great place to dine for lunch or dinner or even that mid afternoon snack with a glass of wine. The menu is varied. Tapas are fresh and well prepared and presented.

Deliciosa has a great buzz. The tapas plates are quite substantial and two or three will provide a meal for two. They stock an excellent range of craft beers and have an extensive wine list, featuring a good number of local wines. As is often the case these days, wine by the class is a tad expensive. Not quite Barcelona,... More

Visited numerous times, consistently good - food bursting with flavour! Attentive staff and good atmosphere complement the package. Must - haves : the pork belly and the mushrooms...
