Visited with family including 4 children under 8 to enjoy the tapas. This is the one place we keep going back to.

Fantastic food, nice atmosphere, very good value, the house white is very drinkable. The range of Tapas is excellent and caters for all tastes but the DATILES CABRALES is a must on any selection. Dates, filled with cheese, wrapped in Serrano and fried in a light batter. Oh my word, I must go again soon!

We have been to this restaurant several times before and have always had a pleasant meal. This visit was no different. On previous occasions we have always had steaks as the restaurant is well known for their steaks. The menu for steaks was not as wide on this visit, but that does not detract from the menu at all.

This is a really lovely restaurant for a family party (or for couples/ solo diners). We went at lunchtime on a Sunday but have also eaten there in the evenings. Really delicious food with loads of choice for vegetarians. Very nice, friendly staff. Highly recommended.

really nice atmosphere, good food especially the paella and quite cheap place considering that you are eating fish. I would like it to be more "Spanish" in order to eat also late in the evening and not only at 21. Saying this, I really recommend this place if you are in Southampton, it is worth it....just remember to book it... More

Spending a night in Southampton and had read lots of good reviews about this place. The staff are amazing and the setting was pleasant enough, although it has a large part of downstairs with a double height ceiling which made it very noisy. Didn't pick up from any review that this is really a big group on a drunken night... More

So glad this tapas restaurant was recommended to us. We ate here with friends on a Saturday, but pleased we had booked as very busy. We were shown to our table and advised of daily specials. The tapas we ordered were very nice, the only critism we had was we found the portions to be on the large side. Would... More

Despite it only being 7pm the staff where clearly conscious that the table needed to be vacated, as a result the entire meal was very rushed with no breaks at all between courses. Waiters were inconsistent (some great some dire). By the time we left 8.30 the place was still dead..they cleary must have fancied an early night. To add... More
