Slower please

Consistently great tapas with friendly efficient service. There does seem to be an un-necessary rush to get you to eat fast and get out the door ASAP, which kind of spoils the ambiance, but you can't knock the food. Just don't go expecting to linger and all will be well.

It felt like we were in Spain!! The most traditional and authentic tapas with the staff ready to assist and advise. The food was great and even though the dishes are small, the quality is anything but. Sangria was lovely too. Can't wait to go back.

Always bustling and always brilliant. Since moving to the area recently this has proved a firm favourite. Great food, good selection of beers and wines and the service is always just right - polite, attentive and friendly without being fussy. There is a fairly standard selection of dishes that should please most diners, but look out for the specials on... More

this is one of the best tapas bars that I have visited- the food is excellent, served quickly and with great flavour- the staff are incredibly attentive and the overall vybe in the facility is buzzy- well worth the effort to go

I've been to this restaurant with my girlfriend and a group of friends and it's been great at providing consistently good authentic tapas on both occasions - try the lentil and chorizo and the prawns in garlic - there is also lots for vegetarians and the staff are sound

We were recommended this place by friends. The atmosphere was great, the staff very helpful and friendly. The menu had a great choice of tapas and all of the dishes were plentiful. The paella for two can certainly feed 3. The white sangria was lovely too. The only downside was that we only had two hours to eat and chat... More

Have had plenty of good evenings here over the years. Was pleasantly surprised that although there had been a change of management the food and service was just as good as ever. Something to do with keeping some key staff no doubt.

The quality of the food is generally ok, but not great. The service is neutral in the sense that the staff are not rude or unwelcoming bur neither are they warm and truly pleased to see you: you can sense of reluctance, but you'd struggle to describe it.

My friend and I arrived without a booking, and upon seeing that the restaurant was extremely full we fully expected not be seated. However, a very charming and extremely helpful waiter explained that there was an extension area which he showed us before seating. The waiter seemed a tad apprehensive about showing us this area, however this was entirely needless... More
