Is the place meant to be a Restaurant with entertainment or a Show with some food to enteratin the public... I believe the first one. However i was disappointed. The show was really good, intense and catchy. Well done. Unfortunately the food was not up to the standards. The starters were OKish but nothing that would make me go back.... More

Very good visit, food of good quality, minor grumbles: two tapas dishes not available on the night and the place was very cold, some diners next to us kept their coats on! Overall, good food and wine at a reasonable price, would recommend for a value for money Tapas night out.

Brilliant entertainment,we had chicken paella that tasted like pidgeon or cat and my partner was sick on the way back,it was lumps of rice and meat and I believe was not cooked properly. Bad review but honest.One of the waitors was very rude when we asked to share our food. I wouldn't go there again.

Ate here on Dec 11th with my son having Googled tapas restaurants in Brighton Ordered 5 tapas which was plenty for two. All the dishes were yummy but my favourite was the croquette with spinach and goats cheese which was served on a small slate and looked fantastic. We finished with complimentary shots of liquor 43!! I thoroughly recommend this... More

The tapas are extremely delicios there! To be honest a bit unexpected for a place in the middle of Brighton! :) We shared 6-7 with my friend and it was more than enough! Although was really quiet that day, the atmosphere says there could be organized lovely evenings with live music, etc. Definitely worth visit if you`re in Brighton!

If you are looking for an authentic Spanish evening out, this is the place.The tapas was the best I have ever had, absolutely delicious. The staff are friendly and helpful, and all of this topped off with an authentic Spanish duo, accompanied by an amazing flamenco dancer! What a great evening out. Will definitely be back for another visit.

We went there for the second sitting on a Saturday night and it was the best night out in a long time. Excellent food and entertainment and wonderful attentive staff. What more could you want.

Went in with friends for lunch who assured us it was a good tapas restaurant. They were, and still are, very correct. It doesn't look much on the surface I'll grant you that but the food really is good and that's what counts in places like this. Unfussy but interesting and great ingredients. Oh and very friendly staff. Oh and... More

Went on Saturday evening having never been before, and was really impressed. Food was fresh, very well cooked and authentic, the squid was a very generous portion especially. They also had live music on, with the female singer on the guitar being especially good, it does make it a very loud evening, with people then dancing between tables and having... More
