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 thought we had booked a table via the internet but hadnt, so happened to pop in to make sure and they found us a table outside, a beautiful setting for a romantic meal for 2, tapas was great and good portions too, and the paella was well worth the wait, service was friendly and with a smile. As good... 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

Visited this place to celebrate a friends birthday recently and I was disappointed by the service and food. We asked three times for tap water before one jug finally appeared ( to share between 12 people). I informed them that I was vegetarian but this was ignored completely no staff offered me any alternatives. I ended up paying £15 for... More

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
