Good tapas

Went in for a late dinner. Food was average, I could buy better jamon and chorizo out of the packet from Tesco. The waitresses were a bit unfriendly, however, that may have been because, like us, they had to listen to stupidly loud chart music. I am 20 not an old fart that doesn't like music but come on, its... More

I had a groupon coupon with a friend for her birthday. We wanted to book before the expiring date, but all the tables were fully booked. The staff have been friendly and accomodate our request. Tapas were great, delicious food. The flamenco show, the atmosphere and the overall experience were excellent. It's definitely worth it.

Table for 2 on a Tuesday evening - booked via a coupon for the 8 tapas meal with glass of Cava and flamenco show. Everything was great, setting is like a converted cellar. We weren't rushed at all, the food was really tasty, served with a smile and the flamenco with spanish guitar playing just made the evening. Would highly... More

Been here multiple times and had previously enjoyed it since they stopped playing latin music or any songs we actually know making it very boring to dance. So bring back reggaeton and latin pls and we shall return.... Food is good and reasonably priced. Staff could be a bit more friendly....and no issues with toilet staff they were very nice.... More

It was Saturday night at 7:30 pm and we were accommodated even though we did not have a reservation. The plates were nicely presented in a stacked tower and were quite tasty. It was a bit dark, but the place and the food were authentic.

I have chosen this place to celebrate my birthday. We went for a party menu and it was very good value for money: we have had a lot of food to share and we couldn't finish all of it! Food was delicious! All dished were very very good! Sangria was nice but too sweet. Atmosphere was great! I would recommend... More

Tasty tapas, a good cocktail and sangria menu and lively atmospheric surroundings are three big plus points in this central London basement restaurant's favour. I went here for dinner, drinks and a catch up with a friend, and we really enjoyed everything we ordered. The tapas portions were generous and there was a good amount of choice. It was happy...
