We went on a Saturday night for a hen party, it was wonderful! The service was excellent, very welcoming, friendly and attentive, we felt very well looked after. Atmosphere was perfect for a hen party, Spanish fiesta style, music, dancing, we had a ball. There is loads of choice in the menu, food was all excellent, portions are very generous,... More

Very friendly, with a great selection of food that varies throughout the year. Always ask what the special of the day is. We found that although this is a tapas bar, some of the portion sizes are large. So I would ensure that you are hungry when you visit. Just ask the staff and they will advise you.

Visited on a Saturday night and they squeezed us in. Lots of big parties which added to the atmosphere. Spanish music and Spanish tv on in background. The hostess was very helpful and warned us about the portions - but we still ordered too much food! Garlic bread is not a few slices but a full size ciabatta cut into... More

We visited with our adult children who had visited previously, in total six adults. It's very difficult to judge how much you are spending as one of the menus states "from £6" but doesn't say they go up to £13 - possibly more but this was the dearest item we ordered. However we really enjoyed the food and, having ordered... More

At the end of a long day we chose a tapas bar to get a nice meal and some variety. We were warned about the portion size so only ordered 3 between 2. Still more than we could finish. The food was excellent but not a tapas meal. Friendly helpful staff nice atmosphere. Reasonable value.

The lady in charge was helpful but not helpful enough, we ended up with far too much food. We have healthy appetities but not that good. Beware the stilton mushrooms - unless there are about ten of you, the portion is overpoweringly too much. The same goes for the squid. And, it's really not very Spanish! Would not go again... More

This place is very busy. The walls are covered in all sorts. The staff are all in Spanish dress and there's a lot going on Fantastic atmosphere The good portions are MASSIVE which you shouldn't complain about but I know tapas as small dishes so this was quite a surprise when the food came out Overall brilliant evening
