Amazing!

We've been here so many times and every visit has been amazing. Great service and fantastic food. You couldn't ask for more - always book a table for the weekend, it's tiny and gets busy. You won't be disappointed!

Was taken here for a date, it's a lovely little place, with lots of food choice and drinks. I think the cocktails were a little pricey but the food was amazing. Booking in advance if definitely recommended as they only have approximately 6/7 tables. Although it's a small place it has a very romantic and intimite feeling, perfect for another... More

We went last night early and had 4 or 5 dishes which all came fairly quickly. Food is mostly always good and not too expensive. Their place is very small and gets packed out later in the night. It is a bit bright but staff were helpful if a little slow at times.

Came here as a table of 6 friends. Wasn't entirely sure of the deal with ordering etc, however we got involved and ordered away. We were told to order 2 dishes each, which we did. The girls found they had enough to eat however the boys went hungry. The dishes are quite expensive so value for money probably wasn't that... More

Lovely lovely evening. Excellent cocktails and then so enjoyed the plates of tapas as they arrived - especially the moules and the chicken and chorizo. The affogato with a twist was a great way to finish the evening. Buzzy atmosphere, delightful staff

Went here with my partner and friends to celebrate the festive season and was extremely impressed. The best tapas in Norwich! Especially enjoyed the parsnip and chestnut thai green curry and the mussels were delicious.Staff were attentive and friendly. Wine was good finished with a glass of Malbec dessert wine kto accompany pudding which was lovely. Will definitely be back... More
