Great tapas and fantastic cocktails

Went here with a group of close friends for a birthday celebration. Started the night with some really good cocktails and then went for every tapas selection on the menu ( there was six of us)! Service was really good and the food was fantastic. A hidden gem that we will visit again.

Booked a table for valentines day as we were to be staying in Norwich for the weekend. I booked the table based solely on reviews and was slightly nervous that it wouldnt be as good as i had hoped. However, shortly after arrival i was confident that all the other positive reviews were spot on. The atmosphere was fantastic and... More

We popped in for lunch on Saturday and really enjoyed our first visit. Not what we had expected but better! The food was great and really tasty. There was a great drinks menu with lots of choice and locally brewed beers. My only minor critisim is that my meal arrived considerably later than my partner's. I appreciate that they are... More

I visited with 4 friends and they recommend 5 dishes per couple, after having a look at the menu we decided on 5 for the 4 of us as the dishes average £7-8 per dish, meaning £80 without drinks for a tapas meal for 4. The food was nice and the drinks were good but portions were small over £9... More

Visited with a good friend of mine, and after an afternoon of gin and red wine we arrived for our table slightly tipsy, famished and hankering for good grub and a cocktail or two. We were not disappointed. The atmosphere was delightful; steamed up windows, scrub tables, fairy lights...lovely. I must admit, I'm slightly hazy to the finer details but... More

I was interested in this restaurant because of its good reviews. but I was a bit disappointed. The service was wonderful, the girl who helped did her best to make us feel comfortable and happy with everything. The food was OK, but no more than average. We ordered wraps and baked camembert with cranberry sauce. The wraps were good (specially... More

Popped in myself as i was down for work and could only manage to get a seat at the bar as it was pretty packed - didn't mind as the staff made me feel welcome and comfortable with a bit of friendly chat. Food was amazing, presentation was spot on too. Would definitely go back!

It pains me to give three stars, but it's a fair assessment. Firstly, the staff are excellent, really friendly and lovely. My issue lies with the menu. The blackboard was basically impossible to read, it needs a good clean and to be set out in a much clearer way. The place bills tapas as a feature but had only three... More
