Two of us had tapas at £20 for five. They weren't particularly generous (lots of sauce, not much filling) and the flavours were just too harsh, no subtelty or balance...and the garlic was seriously overpowering (I like garlic but I like to taste something else too). I also think that serving the tapas with bread wouldn't be too much to... More

My partner and I ate there for a date night and we had a sharing paella it was absolutely beautiful, the nicest muscles I have ever had. The cocktails were delicious I had a smoked margarita and it was so nice. I'd like to go back and try the tapas soon.

Food is different in a good way fresh ingredients, tapas and larger dishes with a twist. Original flavours the Moroccan flat bread is a favourite and our daughter lovers the pesto tagliatelle, watch out substantial portion for lunch.

We went here as a group from work, about 17 of us. Fantastic food it was all delicious. Great friendly service and they even gave us a refund for someone who couldn't make it last minute, don't normally get that these days. They've made a nice cellar bar too so not just food, will be going again

This is the second time I have been to this restaurant, first time with my partner and second with friends. Both visits the atmosphere has been great and the food even better. Perfect place for a date or evening with good friends.

It was ok. Food quality was mixed but it was our works Christmas meal out so maybe I need to try once again with fewer numbers. It wouldn't be a first choice as there are better places in Worcester to select from. In my books this would be a second tier venue.
