An evening with family in this small and friendly restaurant. The mixed tapas on offer was all good and some dishes exceptional. For presentation, the seared tuna was star of the show as a deconstructed salad Nicoise. For complexity of taste, the rabbit done three ways excelled. Did I say that they do excellent refreshing cocktails and the bill was... More

Have been here twice now- both saturday lunch times. First time we walked in and were greeted really nicely. Both me and my Dad had the falafel and houmous wraps which were delicious. The girl who served us was really friendly and knew the menu and the place well. Good prices and nice selection of drinks etc. The second time... More

Imaginative food in a relaxed setting. The tuna was exceptional. The food comes out when it is ready in no particular order so we shared 5 tapas between 2 of us. The cocktail menu is original, especially the one served in a tea cup. Highly recommended.

Last minute google search found this place, managed to get an early table. Small tapas menu which is very freshly cooked. Top quality food a good price. If in the area again, would happily go.

We love eating out, and have eaten at a number of fancy restaurants in the past, but this small cafe with just 3 or 4 tables is right up there with some of the best food I've ever had. An ever changing menu of 'world tapas' - we ordered 5 plates to share between the two of us. Despite all... More

I visited last night with a group after a few friends recommended this place. None of us had eaten here before, we were really pleased with the food and service. We opted for a few plates of bread and homemade humous and the sweet potato bravas (amazing). We then picked one dish each so to not over order. For me,... More

This place was recommended by our daughter and what a find! A gem of a place with the best, freshly cooked tapas which were very good value for money and extremely good quality. We were told the cocktails were amazing and they certainly were. I've tried a few in my time and these were v good. It's a small but... More

Had this place recommended by a friend, so went along to give it a go. Very casual decor, very friendly service and interesting tapas menu choices. Really impressed by the drinks menu, original cocktails, great wines and a fantastic variety of soft drinks. 6 dishes for 3 of us was plenty to nibble, but if something really takes your fancy...

The front door can be missed but once in it is a surprisingly good place. A bit of an eclectic place. food was nice. Cocktails also and of course the company.
