Fantastic food catering for all tastes. I don't red meat, friend has shellfish allergy - not a problem. Delicious food which is very well presented and explained by the Spanish staff. Cosy and intimate, good for a lunch or for the evening with a lovely bar downstairs.

We called in advance and explained I was a vegan and my husband is a vegetarian. Without ordering any food, looking at a menu or with no questions by the staff about what we would like to eat, we were issued with the meal! The food was awful. My husband was basically given cheese and a grape, I was given... More

I live in the far West of Dundee, so for me to dine in the far-east, it has to be a pretty special experience. And this was. Having heard intriguing tales of the Tapas Bar, I could quell my curiosity no longer and booked a table for 11 people for my birthday. Though the restaurant is charmingly, intimately small, there...

Been many times and have always enjoyed the experience on our most recent visit food was well cooked,plentiful and complimented by the friendly but professional service as always Upstairs was busy on a Saturday afternoon which with the bare floorboards can make it a bit noisy and conversation a bit hard to follow but it adds to the ambience However...

First visit here but will not be the last. The staff ask what you don't like or are allergic to and cater the dishes accordingly. They also take the time to explain what each dish is and couldn't be more helpful. The food is varied and delicious and we were full to the gunnels after our visit. Good value for... More

I've been here about 4 times now and each time it has been great. This is the second time I've been here whilst pregnant and both times the menu has been altered to cater for what I can and can't eat. They also did this for my Mum who can't eat gluten. The substitute items were of an equal standard... More

My friends and I have been to the Tapas Bar three times, and we enjoyed the experience each time, The staff are welcoming and helpful, explaining the food offered, and generally being very friendly. The food, too, is different but delicious, and there is plenty of it - by the end of the meal I feel replete and then some.... More

We have been here before and have enjoyed. However you do need to be careful that you knows long you have your table for. They generally require the table back after 2 hours. Also you have to make sure you slow down service or your whole meal can be over in 50 minutes as we found. Possibly we didn't slow... More

Having heard so much about this place and reading the reviews, we had been saying for some time we should try here and today, we finally did! We were warmly welcomed and asked about food allergies etc. My hubby advised he didn't like seafood but I do so I was brought prawns & hake as part of my meal but... More
