Popped in for a quick lunch , the surroundings although very Spanish looking , seemed a bit unpromising - maybe a little tatty , and the place was not the warmest location ( in Feb ). The service was very good, we were advised of the specials - and chose all of them plus some standards Tapas are such as... More

I have been here on 2 different occasions - once on a date and the other with my team from work. It is just a really fantastic atmosphere. The staff are so friendly and when you see Spanish in a Spanish restaurant you know it must be good! We had the party set menu where its £20/head and you have... More

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!
