Having had a superb meal here in the evening a few months ago, we thought we'd try it again whilst shopping in Worcester. We arrived a little early - shortly before the normal 12 midday opening time for the restaurant, but were still welcomed and sat down with a dish of olives whilst we chose from the menu. We had...

Went for lunch with friends. It wasn't particularly busy, but service was slow. When the food arrived it was beautifully presented & tasted really good. There was plenty of choice. the cocktails are good value at two for £10.00, however they both have to be the same for this offer. This wasn't explained when we ordered, however, the manager agreed...

Lunched here with a friend, we both chose the lobster filled pasta which was served with such a delicious sauce we all but licked the plate clean. We never have a desert at lunch but couldn't resist sharing the limoncello cheese cake; we weren't disappointed! The service was great, the surroundings lovely,( the restaurant is in an old church building)... More

Excellent choice of, primarily, Mediterranean food. Tapas,in particular, are great value and on special offer at some times of the day. On three floors with a cellar bar and casual seating on the ground floor. Good selection of wines. My particular favourites are the Mirror Lake Sauvignon Blanc from NZ and the Amerone. A great paella for two that even... More

I love this restaurant and having been several times have never been disappointed in either the food or the service. The whole place has a wonderful vibe ....form the vaulted bar area in the basement to the restaurant up stairs. The menu has a something to suit all tastes (even the fussy eaters) and the chef is very accommodating should... More

I came across this place whilst i was spending the day in Worcester with my 10 month old. Unfortunately for me, the restaurant area was upstairs so i didn't get to see what it was like, however, a very friendly waiter seated me and my oversized pushchair in a nice corner seating area in what i believe to be a...

A very nice restaurant located centrally in Worcester City Centre. Called in for lunch on a quiet Monday and service from the first moment was very good (would suggest you book ahead to ensure a table at busy times as it filled quickly on the day). A lovely dining room adds to the experience. Menu is simple and offers very... More

Came across this by chance and it was such a result. The staff were professional, attentive (but not too much) and friendly. The food was fantastic. Could not fault the paella, it was wonderful. The ambiance was friendly and relaxed, we ended up spending hours here. Would love to go back!
