Birthday treat!

The food and staff were excellent. Although we had a good time we sat very close to the cooking area and the smoke from the pork being cooked was a bit of a let down!

Exactly that. The all you can eat factor makes it reasonably good value but the whole experience lacked finesse.

Once the food arrived it was OK, but the edge had already been taken off the lunch. We waited for 40 minutes for our starter. At one point I went up to the serving counter as I could see the hot calamari dish getting cold before our eyes and no waitress in sight to put it on our table.The chef... More

This was a very sweet spot. The server was charming. The food was excellent. We enjoyed it immensely. The only negative (which seemed to be a problem all over Norwich) is the lighting.

Really enjoyed the tapas, not all dishes completely authentic but very enjoyable & cooked to order! All you can eat Monday night tapas for £12.95 is excellent value which might explain why the place was busy & buzzing. Waitress failed to mention prior to ordering that dessert was extra but given the good value I didn't mind!
