Fab pizza, authentic setting

This is my second time to the Square Orange and we returned as the pizza was so good first time. We were not disappointed, in fact my husband enjoyed his so much he ordered a second one. He wrote a review too and you will see that he has only ever written two, so this tells you how much he... read more

We had two tapas and a bowl of nachos to share. This was adequate for two people, hot food with a friendly atmosphere, amazing what could be made in such a small kitchen. Would definitely return again.

Fab place! Small and intimate. Funky little tapas and pizza bar. Awesome atmosphere. Expect Bob Marley and chilled tunes to be playing in the background. A cabinet of board games lies in the back corner. The staff are super lovely. The baked Camembert is yummy as are all the other tapas we tried. It's THE place to be in Keswick... More

This is pizza to die for!!!! An original place, with good food and good service to back it up - cannot fault... More

We popped in a couple of times on our visit, this was mainly because it was too busy at this time of the year. The first visit was just like we remembered it, we enjoyed a drink well until someone came in with a dog the size of a bear and blocked any access for my wife to her chair.... More

This is the culinary gem of Keswick. It's very small and the kitchen area is tiny, but it produces better Tapas than places bugger, glitzier and more expensive. The Tapas of the moment is always worth a try and the baked feta with olives and bread is as good as anywhere. The tiny bar offers a choice of Spanish, Belgian... More

We have been here a good few times over the years because we like the vibe but never eaten. This time we tried the pizzas and they were very good. We have eaten at Da Michele [ pretension alert ! Anyone 'in the know' will know where I mean ] and I can honestly say the cafe's pizza are quite... More

Great night, brilliant small venue, staff who worked extremely hard to make us feel welcome and meet our needs. Good local beer and excellent tapas. We weren't able to book a table but took our chances and managed to squeeze into a small table for 6. Keswick is a brilliant place to visit and we loved the end to the... More

Great tapas in a relaxed atmosphere. Fun and friendly staff who were willing to engage in some banter. I'm sure we'll be back.
