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...

This was a great little restaurant,clever use of tapas concept, extended to include dishes from around the world. Tapas here can comprise of Meditteranean, Middle Eastern and South East Asian dishes. A short but excellent wine list and friendly enthusiastic staff. Highly recommend !!

We had a late lunch for 8 people, waitress (Joyce) was absolutely lovely and the cocktails were fantastic. Food was superb - we had a selection of the whole menu (we had to pre book for this as we were going in at lunch) and we all loved every single one of the dishes. Restaurant is casually decorated, but full... More

Ravishing smile of welcome from the sole blondily gorgeous server,who, despite dealing with a table of five, then two tables of two and then two tables with singleton men within 15 minutes, never lost her cool, her charm, her open friendliness, and efficiently delivered very tasty, authentically Mediterranean or Morrocan wraps constructed within minutes by a very talented chef.

Several of us were booked in for a hen party for Tapas early evening. The Staff were friendly and very efficient. The Tapas was fast flowing and delicious - not sure what to favour - the curry, the baked camembert .... totally spoilt for choice - loved it all. What a perfect setting to start our evening - well done... More

Just popped in for a Friday lunchtime coffee. Friendly staff, great decor and atmosphere and above all fantastic coffee. Who needs Costa or Starbucks when you have hidden gems like this. Will be back.

Intimate, friendly, welcoming. Great staff. Outstanding and varied food menu. Puts a lot of bigger venues to shame. Quick service too. Highly recommended. I will be going back for sure.
