Great food

I've been here several times and never been disappointed. Food is so good!! Cooked brilliantly, portions are great and taste amazing. There are loads of options to suit any taste. The vegetarian and gluten free options are very good too. Only problem is that when it is busy it can be a little... read more

I first went with family over 7 years ago & raved about it to all my friends. I introduced my then boyfriend, now husband, to the restaurant 5 years ago & it quickly became one of our favourite restaurants. It's always busy, the food is fantastic, & as a vegetarian, there is a great selection of dishes for me to... More

From the moment you step in, you feel like you're in Barcelona. Everything from the atmosphere, interior to food is bringing a little of Spain to rainy UK. The service is very friendly as well, food very reasonably priced. I've been here couple times already and I've never been disappointed, it definitely became my go-to restaurant in Leicester. Also, one... More

Really friendly staff, nice vibe and extensive menu - almost too much to choose from ! If anything, portion sizes were too large - but the different tastes on offer were much too good to leave any behind! Good value at around £20/head for 2 courses (3xtapas meals each + dessert + basic drinks). Look out for early bird/start of... More

They have great variety of tapas. There are lots of options for vegetarian. Even my absolute veg only friend loved it. Good service and managed to practise conversational Spanish with the staff. Overall good Spanish experience in Brit restaurant

Visited with a friend for a catch up dinner and we were pleasantly surprised with the food. I had heard good thinks from friends before but hadn't tried it myself. Each tapas dish was done really well and we went on a Tuesday when they had a deal on so the price was brilliant!!

I eat here fairly often and have done for many years, either just with my partner or a small group of friends, and always have a great meal. Food is always spot on and service good despite them often being extremely busy. Always a great atmosphere and will continue to come here as often as we can!

The quality of service and food was top notch. The variety of cuisine was remarkable. I think my favorite was the chorizo stuffed squid. It was not oily and the squid was tender. I'll be back, someday.
