We spend a lot of time in Spain and we thought this place was very good . Sensibly priced for both food and wine with very friendly and helpful staff . You must book here , we called in at 5.30 to see if we needed to book , this was a Thursday , and the waiter insisted we did... More

So great to see a range of tapas that we overindulged! The patatas bravas was the straw that broke the camel's back! Delicious lightly fried calamari rings with garlicky aioli, chunky cod bites with lemony mayonnaise - definite winners.

My friends and I booked to come here for a hen party - not being local, we had no idea what to expect, but all love tapas so thought we'd give it a shot. So glad we did, as it was one of the nicest meals I have had in a long time. We went for Party Menu B, but... More

Great value for money, very helpful staff, and yummy food-plus good service. Which when added together makes for a great place to pop to when you fancy something more than a sandwich for your lunch and at not much more than a sandwich and a coffee.

First night on Oxford and we found Al-Andulus on Tripadvisor and figured tapas would be a good choice. Loved it. Great food and we sat near the bar and had a great conversation with the owner. The plates were all very authentic and the wine and spirits were great. As an added treat the owner gave us some after dinner... More

After a hard day's slog in the library I popped into this (new to me) tapas on the advice of my dear friend, Violaine. It was a pleasant day so I made a beeline for their spacious outdoor dining area at the back of the terrace. I opted for brown lentils with chorizo from the menu and the baby squid... More

We have eaten here a few times recently and the tapas are certainly varied and tasty. Service is excellent and there is a very pleasant and secluded patio area to the rear - unfortunately, the tables are packed quite close together and smoking is permitted. We found ourselves uncomfortably close to a couple who chain smoked through the entire meal,... More

We went to this lovely Tapas bar after a graduation ceremony. The weather was lovely, we were given a nice table in the garden and the atmosphere was just great. The tapas was super, great choice all well cooked and really tasty. The service was outstanding, attentive, without being over the top, friendly and informative. If you like tapas and... More

If you need one that is! Wonderful authentic tapas served in generous proportions by very impressive staff. Great selection and a good dining room even though we walked in on a Saturday night and got the last table tucked in the window - this seemed to add to the experience. It was packed with what seemed many regulars and locals... More
