This is as close as you will get to authentic spanish tapas without boarding a plane! In fact it is better than some of the tapas that I have had in Spain. Everything is freshly prepared and you don't have to worry about making the right selection as there is no menu it is all just brought to your table... More

This is a lovely restaurant. Booked a table last minute on a Thursday evening and had to sit in the bar area as there were no tables available in the upstairs restaurant - obviously this is a popular place. I went in with high expectations after reading a lot of reviews on here and I was not disappointed. The staff... More

Loving the new décor & authentic character in the Tapas Bar's upstairs restaurant. The food as always is generous & varied. If you eat fish & meat youre in for a real treat. Vegetarians maybe have a bit of a cheese feast but that might be a bonus for others. The aioli is highly recommended, would also have enjoyed a... More

Where to start?! Ate here for the first time last night after hearing much about this exciting, authentic restaurant in Broughty Ferry. What an experience! From the warm friendly greeting when we arrived, then an introduction to the restaurant and how it worked I.e. No menu, instead you give your dietary requirements and preferences for food I.e. No seafood, etc.... More

We have driven past this restaurant several times wondering if the food was really as good as everyone says on Tripadvisor. From the outside it never looked too inviting, so today we were happy to see a new neat sign and thought we'd finally give it a try. Inside the restaurant we noticed the cosy Spanish decor and because the... More

We visited this lovely tapas bar after many recommendations from friends and family members. The food was so delicious, especially the starters! I enjoyed the fact there was no menu and you were able to try everything. The only thing that let it down slightly were the desserts. There was only really cheesecake on offer and while this wasn't an... More

Took my wife here for her birthday lunch and it didn't disappoint. Have been looking to try this place for months now and eventually we found time to squeeze it in. The countless amount of positive reviews tell you that this is an excellent place to go. However never having tasted tapas we weren't sure what to expect, Wow! From... More

High quality, perfectly cooked authentic Spanish food. Loved the selection and balance of flavours available on the lunch tapas menu. The fish was the show stopper though! Great service too! As someone who has recently returned to live in Carnoustie I will be taking friends. Lovely atmosphere and a real treat! Not to be missed. Worthy of its number 1... More

Lovely selection of tapas and drinks. All authentic in theme and menu. Downstairs you are seated first then taken upstairs for your meal where dining feels very intimate. The waitresses and waiters are polite and friendly and the best bit is they ask if you have allergies or don't like certain foods. A tip is to go for lunch as... More
