We have visited this establishment several times now - once on our own and the other times with friends and all occasions have been top quality. Lovely atmosphere, friendly staff, exceptionally good tapas and all very reasonably priced. Feel lucky to have the bowl full tapas bar on our doorstep! Great for all occasions.

From a mixture of cheeses to meat balls and dips it was all spot on. The staff are very friendly and only offer to... More

I cannot get enough of this amazing place - a gastronomic gem. As ever the food here is amazing, however last Saturdays visit included tasting the amazing crème brulee. TBFTB twist on this dessert is fab, making it one of the best desserts that I have ever tasted. Also, fabulous is the very welcoming hosting skills of the staff. I... More

Having recently returned from San Sebastion we thought maybe the Bowlful Tapas Bar would be a lttle disappointing. How wrong were we!!Excellent food, good choice of dishes, generous portions and friendly staff. We had a great evening.
