This was our first time at bar 26. There were 6 of us and the weather was dreadful. We were greeted by a warm welcome and the staff very friendly. Tapas was a bit over priced and lacked atmosphere.

Good atmosphere and choice of drinks but there Tapas was far from authentic, the Calmari and Goujons were covered in thick batter. Decent chips and flat bread though.
