Food was very nice, good value. Portions were much bigger than regular tapas however so we ended up with far more food than needed, even though we took advice from our waitress. Only order 2 dishes each (not 3) and you'll be more than full. 4 stars because of this and that drinks were a bit pricey.

This is one of the best restaurants in Norwich and deserves to be much better known. It is small, so booking ahead is advised on busy nights, but it's more than worth the wait. The food is very good quality with everything cooked to order and appearing to use fresh local ingredients where possible. Dishes are slightly larger and more... More

Great little place (around 8 tables) that serves delicious tapas dishes that are written up on the blackboard, so they may change each time you visit. Don't expect traditional spanish tapas dishes - these are great unusual dishes that are usually twists on english or spanish dishes I think! Great food, staff, atmosphere and cocktails - what more could one... More

I recently visited 42 King Street for dinner with two friends and wasn't disappointed. This was my second visit and this small restaurant impressed as much this time as it did the last. I think portion size has grown since the last time I visited, and there were more options for vegetarians. We shared 5 dishes and some olives between... More

Tiny restaurant with big potential. If under staffed the service can be very slow but food is delicious and the cocktails pack a punch. Great place to go for a drink and tapas before going to a gig at The Waterfront for example.

4 of us ate here and shared 9 tapas style dishes (the size is larger than regular tapas servings - more like a small main course). The nachos, salt & pepper squid and prawn bisque were especially amazing! The 2 desserts we shared were great too. Excellent selection of drinks - all served well. Total bill (including 2 bottles of... More

I came in with my partner after work at around 6pm. The place was almost empty, but we were greeted very cordially by the waitress and discussed cocktail orders. When I asked her what Aperol was, she brought me the bottle to look at, and even went to get me a little bit to try! The cocktails we chose were... More

One of the best meals in Norwich I've ever had. Cosey, friendly and warm. Food was fresh and so delicately cooked and presented. Perfect place for something special / impressive. Hunting for an excuse to go back! Only thing I would say is the seating is a little uncomfortable, but that's probably down to us staying and enjoying ourselves for... More

I went here this weekend for the first time, it having been on the to-do list for a while. We were eating elsewhere, so are only calling in for a couple of drinks en-route which was handy, as they were fully booked for a private party later on but that wasn't an issue for us. The waitress was new and... More

my friend booked for us to eat on Saturday night at 9pm, the three people on the table before us, grew roots and where not for moving, so the fantastically patient, lovely man (i think he was in charge) made room for us at the bar where we ate our meal - it was no bother, we were comfortable and...
