A testament to how much we enjoy our time here is that we wish it were open on weekends so we could bring more friends. The location is beautiful, overlooking the lovely Leadenhall Market.

Excellent selection of Spanish tapas food of good quality and reasonably ample portions. Our food and drinks were served by a very friendly and attentive Spanish waitress, with the overall ambience being very lively. An entertaining informal dining experience with good food.
