Good for post-cinema meal.

Great tapas, friendly service - uncomfortable seats! Just round the corner from Komedia cinema. Will be back.

Popped in here for a midafternoon break and some light bites. The place was busy, the service wasn't the quickest but we wanted a relaxing break from shopping so that suited us. Our waitress was warm and welcoming, the food was excellent as was the wine. For four plates and two drinks the bill was (just) less than twenty quid.... More

Came in mid week for tapas and it was fine. Decent portion sizes and tasty. Nothing ground breaking but does what it says on the tin. The waitress was friendly and efficient.

I used to come to this lovely little tapas bar every week, but since Juan left over a year ago we havent been. I love tapas, and we where in a rush to go to the theare - so we thought we'd give it a whirl. Chaos! Despite the place being half empty, we where guided to a dirty table... More

Traditional laid back tapas, the food is excellent, the service is good (laid back and relaxed, not slow) and the ambience is just right if you want a quick in and out dinner this definitely isn't the place to go, if you wish to spend an hour or two having a drink and some good food then this is the...

My family and I ate here on a recent day trip to Brighton. We used to live in Spain and my mother said that it was the best tapas she has eaten outside of Spain. Fantastic selection and very good value for money. Décor is in the traditional Spanish tapas bar style. Will definitely recommend.

The tables are small and the chairs or stools are not that comfortable, but the food and wine are excellent. We have eaten here many times, enjoying the tapas and rioja.

We visited twice in a week! Once as a couple on a quiet Tuesday evening. The waitress was warm and friendly and took the time to advise on the right wine for the meal. The food was absolutely delicious and in true tapas style arrived quickly in a sporadic order. We left leaving having made reservations to return 4 days... More
