We were having a short break in Newquay and came across this delightful Tapas bar. The owner was very friendly when we walked in and made us very welcome. We had a few tapas and a drink each which came to less than £20. Very good value for the quality of the products. Give it a try hopefully you will... More

Me, my partner and another couple spent a long weekend in Newquay back in August. We came here on the first night. The food was amazing. Fresh and clean on the pallet, and filling! We enjoyed lots of wine, because we were not rushed. It's a nice touch reserving a table and it's yours for the night, and not children.... More

Came here twice during a recent weeks holiday in Newquay for the third year running. Both my wife and I love it. The food is of good quality with generous sized portions complimented by excellent service. This husband and wife team deserve recognition for delivering an authentic Spanish eating experience. See you again next year.

Visited here with my husband whilst staying at porth campsite. It is one of those places that is easy to dismiss as it does not necessarily grab your attention from outside. Once inside though the food choice and atmosphere are both great. We shared 5 tapas between us and also sampled the olives.The olives were fantastic and every dish we... More

We recently went to Newquay for a wedding and spotted this place walking near Lusty Glaze beach. The building is painted with the words Relax and Unwind on the front which was exactly what we were after. Booked a table for four the same night easily. The communal style eating is great and we went through a few sharing liters... More

Generous portion sizes. Everything we ordered was lovely. The only thing that lets it down is no paella or spanish tortilla, which are my favourites that I like to have when going for tapas. Yes we will be back.

Having stayed at the nearby Porth Beach Holiday park For a number of years I'd never quite managed to pop in to this restaurant...however, during my recent visit I made up for that with 2 visits in a matter of days! Once as a couple & once with our very good friends. Both visits were great, lots of choice, a... More
