On top of the amazing service the food is incredible - we went with the... More

Visited this resturant today and was blown away by the exceptional food, service and unreflective modest prices! The scallops in chocolate sauce can only be described as a memorable experience that has to be on ones to do list! Furthermore the suckling pig burgers I cannot describe in words the bursting fusion of flavours! I had the traditional paella with... More

You are assured of a warm welcome and great Spanish hospitality. This is our 2nd visit and the food does not disappoint. Do try the Iberian ham, wafer thin and mouth watering! The beetroot carpaccio with soft brie and prawns is another great starter. The mains are equally good, grilled pork, duck breast...spoilt for choice. The Valentine desserts were nice... More

Had a dining experience voucher for the tasting menu at this restaurant. Food was absolutely incredible, didnt look like a huge amount of food but was extremely filling. The menu involved four courses of Tapas, Oxtail Risotto then Sea Bream and Berry Soup for dessert. Service was impeccable, would highly recommend!

Being from Spain and coming from the region of Valencía which is known for paella I can say this is by far the best paella experience I've had outside of Spain.

From the octopus starter to the suckling pig main course, words are not enough to express the euphoria I experienced with this meal. I wouldn't have minded without the dessert, with the chocolate fondant but I didn't mind as I was so blown away. Friends had for starters a burrata and bisque, which was beautiful - especially the burrata with... More

they took some 'traditional' food but made it chic and special. Loved it! Service was great and the wine was special....and not expensive. It was a 3 course menu for 26 pounds sterling, a bargain.
