Excellent bar and restaurant, very friendly polite staff, who were chatty but professional. Lunch was excellent quality and there was loads of interesting combinations to choose from, and not the usual boring pub grub, plenty of vegetarian options and very good value for money. We intend to go again and have Tapa's very soon.

It's not always easy to get a seat here but it'd worth it if you do. Good tapas and matching wine list.

Opted for the tapas at café bar 26. Couldn't fault it. Really tasty. Service was brilliant. Very friendly. The bar is relaxing and comfortable and I could have sat there all evening. A definite must try.

This is a very friendly place to eat. Both in terms of the place itself and the staff. The menu has some interesting Mediterranean combinations, and is very good. Good value for money too

What a wonderful little restaurant. Located on Lake Road (on the way to the lake). The food is delicious, the service great and the staff courteous. What more could you want? Recommended.

Came here on a Saturday evening for the tapas. The food was excellent although we did have about a 40 minute wait which we were warned about when we ordered. It was well worth the wait. Lovely atmosphere, drinks not too expensive, good choice of dishes. We had 5 dishes which we found ample for our appetites. We will go... More
