The tapas here is amazing, I want to go back asap to try more of the menu! My favourite dish was the halloumi and chorizo skewers. The drinks are quite expensive but the quality of food makes up for it and there is a lovely seating area outside to sit out in the sun. I've also had a salad here... More

We usually drop in on a Saturday mid-shop and we are never disappointed - we have some of the tapas and the portion sizes are just right for a light bite - good choice of tapas and the burgers are tasty too - cocktails are excellent : )

Based on the reviews I was expecting a lot more. Service and cocktails was good, food was mediocre but over priced for what it is. Won't be back.

Recently attended the Cuban for a hen do which started in one of their bars partaking in a cocktail making workshop which was made even better by the extremely good looking and humorous bar men (Michael buble lookalike we mean you!!) who patiently put up with 15 hens who were in high spirits. This part was incredible value for money... More

The restaurant on a whole is good, the atmosphere is nice, the food isn't too bad but, like many places in the city, the drinks are very expensive and you can only really afford one or two at a time when you're eating on a budget.

The menu in the window looked intriguing so in we went! We were impressed with the service, the decor and the variety of items on the menu. I chose the Avocado & Warm Picante Chorizo, which was delicious, and a variety of excellent rum-based cocktails (2 for 1!!), and finished the mean with a shared Caramelised Banana Mango, and Caribbean...

I booked this restaurant for my wedding anniversary after a couple of recommendations and I was extremely impressed! The staff are extremely helpful and polite. The food is just amazing and the cocktails are great!! We turned up not realising it was 2 for 1 on tapas and cocktails on that night so it was very resonable (even at full... More
