Authenic Spanish atmosphere and delicious food

I love to go to this place for lunch. The tapas are varied and delicious with a great variety both hot and cold. They always have good wine too and I particularly like the Rioja. Service is good.

Love this place. So much we went twice in a week. The food is delicious the Tinto we had with it was gorgeous and the place has good service and the staff and welcoming. Thoroughly recommend this if you want a lovely evening with atmosphere and charm and good food at a good price.

Thus was a great find. Great atmosphere, excellent service and some of the best tapas I have had. If you are burnt out on fish and chips and steak pies go here

Was really really disappointed in our visit, we booked a month before we went as it was my birthday and I love Tapas and the place had such great reviews. When we got there they had given us a tiny table in the door so one of our party would've had to continually move every time somebody wanted to come... More

Really comprehensive menu with clear markings for gluten free and vegetarian time. Fast, friendly service and good food. The decor made us feel like we were in Spain.

Great welcome from the staff, lovely table for two. Service was polite, fast and just great. Food was the best we had eaten in Oxford in many years, all very different but felt like you were eating in Madrid.

Four of us recently visited from work. I had made a booking that I had to change at the last minute, but the restaurant were very accommodating and gave me a 1 hour window of when to arrive. The restaurant was nearly full when we got there - always a good sign. The range of tapas is great, every dish... More

Want a relaxed atmosphere with good food and service? This is the place for you and friends. The menus were reasonably priced and the choices good. We had a fixed price menu for our party of ten and the food kept coming and coming but at intervals that did not over-face us. Service was also excellent. Definitely in the diary... More

My girlfriend and I visited Al-Andalus for dinner. We began with a small pitcher of sangria, which was perfect for 2 people. We then proceeded to order our food- we ordered 6 dishes for the two of us which was more than enough ( we even struggled to finish the last plate.) We ordered: 1)the Pimientos de Padron 2) Chorizos... More
