First visited this restaurant several years ago and we always said we would try to go back one day. Finally on Saturday we came back and we were delighted to see it hadn't changed! The menus offers something for everyone and the food itself is faultless. We simply loved every dish! Great vibe in the place as well and I... More

Love this place since I first spotted it in 2010. Been several times with friends or also as couple. Their Tapas are really good and authentic, they have a good variety and the portion size is good. You could spent all your time eating tapas without thinking about a main. Their Sangria is nice (some of our group said it... More

We were shown promptly to a table near the back and were able to have a nice enjoyably long meal without feeling rushed. Everything looked and tasted good and we ordered progressively throughout the evening, washing it all down with sangria. A great value restaurant, we ate to our hearts content, everything tasted good, diligent service and we didn't spend... More

I had been visiting the Ashmolean Museum. The cafe and restaurant always tend to fill up rather rapidly, especially at weekends, so I wandered up Woodstock Road. I spotted the sign promising "Tapas" in a side-road and I went in. It was a nice day, so I ate outside. Apart from the fact that I was pestered by a persistent... More

Due to an unavoidable delay we were looking for a restaurant late on in the evening and when we arrived were still waiting for the third member of our party to join us. Despite the restaurant being very busy we were made welcome and our drinks were served quickly. The third member of our party didn't arrive for some time,... More

We came here when in the area because of recommendations from others and the food did not disappoint. We were happy with all of our choices apart from one (the spinach with chickpeas) and would definitely visit again when in Oxford. Only criticism is we found the staff to be a bit off and not very friendly but perhaps they... More

If you enjoy tapa and want to eat traditional amazing food look no further than here. Visited her 6 times over last couple of years as a couple and with friends and have never been disappointed! It's always busy so if you want a quite romantic meal, may not be the place for you. If you want to experience a... More

Our party of 5 sat in the garden and it was a great place to get away from the hustle & bustle of busy Oxford. The menu identified gluten free dishes which was very important to one of our guests. Our first experience of tapas was interesting and the dishes came rattling along. All small, I guess they are supposed... More

Visited here as I fancied some tapas other than the generic range provided by La Tasca. Located in a small back street off a main road in Oxford, the selection of tapas here is certainly wider and more authentic than the chain. Service was fast; I was seated quickly despite the restaurant being near full. Waiter and waitress were both... More

Recommended by a friend who lived in oxford. Delicious food in pleasant surroundings. Recommend the marinated pork skewers and garlic prawns. Would go back without hesitation.
