Booked here on a Monday night with a party of 11 and was extremely impressed. Personally I can take or leave the cocktails but the choice of other drinks was good. All the food was excellent but the 5 bird platter was one of the nicest things I have ever eaten. My only regret is that I shared it with... More

We ate here for the first time this weekend after reading the great reviews and we weren't disappointed. There were 7 of us eating so rather than chose from the menu we asked the staff to pick a range of dishes for us, they were all excellent. the highlights for me were the prawns in a sherry-baad sauce and the...

If you like an experience rather then just a meal, this is the place to go. Everything about this place appeals greatly to me - it's independently owned, has a unique and cosy feel about it, the staff are polite and most of all, GREAT food and drink. Perfect for couples or small groups, a good way to try unusual... More

Having been several times to this wonderful quaint Tapas Bar its about time I've given the owner a well deserved praise it so warrants. The food prepared to order and always presented and tastes so excellently good. Theirs no doubt that the chef and his team are of professional chefs and certainly very knowledgeable to the taste of their customers... More

An amazing variety of tapas. I am always blown away by the chefs knowledge and inspiration for dishes, with their forever changing creations. Best cocktails I have tried in Norwich by far. Lovely quaint atmosphere. Highly recommend.

Inspired by the many fulsome reviews my girlfriend and I decided this would be the idea spot for for a pre theatre dinner on our anniversary. I'm shocked the the reviews are as good as they are. We where both massively disappointed and underwhelmed by the food. I can only assume, and please forgive me for being so pointed, that... More

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
