Walked in to a great lunch

We were really pleased with the lunch quality here; it's a set cold and hot tapas selection served by the Spanish chef with the delightful accent and obvious passion about what goes on here. It was reasonably busy and the three staff members behind the bar were attentive. Toilets were immaculate... read more

They really couldn't do more for us! With a very warm welcome you are seated in a rustic Spanish tapas atmosphere where the staff afford you individual attention even if there isn't a spare seat in the house. Then the feast begins with a range of cold tapas dishes followed by an even round of hot tapas. The food is... More

I would heartily recommend this place the staff are lovely and helpful explaining the dishes they are serving. This is a set menu... More

I've been here with my girlfriend a few times now. Every time the experience has been fantastic. The staff are very welcoming and friendly and take their time to ask if you have any allergies; if there is anything you don't like and explain each dish. There's no set menu and you'll wonder when the food stop coming. Tip: Go... More

We had a party of 12 on a Sunday night, it was crowded but the staff did a great job and we never waited on service. Only downside is the noise level, no acoustics and you soon be raising your voice to be heard. It's a set tapas menu starting with olives and nuts. Then came out the first wave... More

My wife and I have visited this restaurant a few times now and have never been disappointed. If anything, each visit has been better than the last. We have experienced the lunch menu and dinner menu and with each you get plenty of dishes to fill you up. There is no menu but we like the excitement of not knowing... More

We've dined here a few times with family, friends or just the two of us. Never been disappointed with any aspect whatsoever. The food is brilliant. The staff are helpful and friendly and the overall experience is superb. By far the best eartery in Broughty Ferry. We'll return again. Thank you!

You won't trip over this if you're visiting Dundee because it's about a 15 minutes drive or taxi from the centre. But make the journey, it's well worth it. Went in June for my son's graduation dinner, so it was absolutely packed, and you might have expected some service issues under that pressure. But no. Has to be right up... More
