went here with family and friends shortly after it opened. We didn't book a table but luckily they had one available upstairs. We ordered the introduction to tapas which was very nice. When the lovely waitress asked us if we enjoyed our meal, we told her we enjoyed everything, but thought that the risotto could do with some more seasoning.... More

Up in York for the weekend and having read great things about this venue on the Squidbeak food blog, I decided to book a table for a Saturday night and thank goodness, as in the five minutes it took to seat us they turned away three groups as they were fully booked - and after my experience I can understand...

After a long day enjoying the fantastic pre-race atmosphere we needed sustenance and this place was ideal. I remember the building as the Scout Shop - it's role now is much more to my liking ! We had very tasty sherry each served by a knowledgable 'waiter' and a delightful tapas including a 'wheel' as well as meatballs, and Whiting.... More

I am vegan went here with my two non-vegan friends. Usually we're limited as to where we can all eat together but not here! There is a vegan menu which is so helpful, but they also serve meat so friends are happy too! I ordered two dishes as I wasn't very hungry but they recommend you order three, which I'd... More

Excellent food: tapas with imagination and superb basic ingredients. First rate wine list, first rate service and while we were only there at lunch and early evening, it was not as busy as it should be. York doesn't know what it is missing out on by not going there. We visited 3 times in 3 days and were not disappointed... More

Loved this place. As a vegan often find it difficult to eat out but was made to feel welcome and I really appreciated how they have a menu available to show what can be made vegan. Saves a lot of time for myself and for the staff so they're not running to and fro from the kitchen to ask the... More

Lunched there 3 days in a row - first class individual tapas and tapas selections which could be shared. Wines good and whites ( a useful selection) were chilled. Service friendly and price modest. Cant speak for dinner but great spot to lunch.

Last night was my second visit to this restaurant. And for the second time, I had a very enjoyable meal. We shared several tapas dishes between us. Great, if you want a light bite or something a bit more substantial. Although I'd say it could get quite pricey, if you order a lot. There is plenty of choice and a... More
