I booked a table on the day I wanted to go, and was lucky they had some tables available. It looks a little small from the outside, but is much bigger as you go in. The food was so delicious, pretty much ate most of the vegetarian dishes, and some seafood, and it was lovely (maybe the mushrooms were a... More

Firstly, let me say that the experience was good. We booked the restaurant as a we were going to the theatre and it is ideally located for the Prince of Wales theatre. We booked through taste card. The food was fantastic all served with minimum fuss but all dishes are served with a little explanation of the contents. We went... More

We went to the Flamenco night on a Wednesday, and enjoyed the whole experience. The restaurant is set in a basement just around the corner from Leicester Square tube station and has an excellent, if dark, ambience. Arrive before 8pm, and you can avail of the Happy Hour with large reductions of house wines, bottled beer and a selection of... More

I had my birthday party last Saturday and I would say everything was perfect. There were 17 of us and we choose to have the set menu for £19.95 each. We had to choose 7 tapas from the menu. It turned out that food was simply delicious and portions were so huge that we couldn't end up all. Steven and... More

We booked a table for 3 and, as a friend joined us, we were kindly reallocated in a different one. Once the waitress took the order, we didn't have to wait long for the food. All meals were good. Unfortunately, portions were quite small for the price we paid. Special mention to the "cheese board": 4 thin, tiny slices of... More

Saw this on the Amazon voucher site and thought we would give it a go. Great value! Flamenco dancer and guitarist provided the entertainment, good food and nice staff. It is set in the most unlikely place, a basement, but the dancer was excellent, although we did have to twist our necks to see her. very good atmosphere. Superb communications... More

We went to a London Theatre and before we thought we would try the Tapas at this subterranean restaurant. The atmosphere was good even though it was early evening. The dish selection was excellent, and all the ones we ordered were very tasty. Drinks prices were not unreasonable, and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Good food and good value.

Four of us went here the Saturday before Christmas. We booked a table for9pm so we could stay there the evening rather than going earlier and having to move. The food was good, a varied selection and quite reasonable. We really liked the atmosphere though and at around 11pm ish it turned from a restaurant to quite a lively night... More

Read good reviews about this place. Booked a table for 2 to arrive at 8pm, ordered starters and Bottle of red. They brought this after 20-30 mins, we didn't mind as weren't rushing to anywhere on nye. Then ordered some hot tapas which arrived after another 30 mins. We were still eating our food at 11 pm, waitress, Natalia, came... More
