I have been here on several occasions for both thier famous tapas nights and normal menu. On all occasions upon visiting here it has been a great time, with the owners always giving you a warm welcome and delicious food and wine waiting to be served.

Had birthday lunch with my wonderful friend. Food and service is excellent. Both of us had been previously and as we had thoroughly enjoyed we returned for my birthday lunch. Food is very tasty and well presented. Well worth a visit.

Last year I had some reservations after our visit, but this time I have no qualms. For me, the highlight was the excellent olives starter which included sun-dried tomatoes and sweet peppers and was very reasonably priced too. My wife once more loved the fish stew.

Would definitely recommend the lamb and if you're getting the anti-pasti starter definitely get one between two as we were advised! The only reason we wouldn't give it a 5 is that the food could be hotter and a few service issues. Would definitely recommend though!
