Nice food shame about the cold

I recently visited this tapas bar. Food is very nice, staff pleasant. Could do with more cushions at the front and some heating. we were cold and did tell the waitress but we couldn't be moved. when a table became free we did move but it was no warmer. I would visit again but think I will stick to... read more

The room was freezing - some people were sitting with their coats on! The food was cold too. Such a pity as we were massively hungry. The waiting staff were really pleasant but we were so disappointed with our tapas. On the subject of the tapas - most of them are not remotely Spanish but I'm not sure if they... More

I have visited here on a number of occasions over the past few years and I really believe the quality of the food and service has gone downhill. My most recent booking was a Sunday evening and there was very little atmosphere in the place. On the positive side the calamari and pate were delicious. However...the bread was hard and... More

This restuarant was a great suggestion from a close friend and it did not disappoint! The cheery atmosphere and great musical selection was matched superbly by the exquisite food and tasteful wines. I was seated and served by two lovely and helpful young men who's witty banter between themselves and us topped the night off and we will be returning... More

Recently went to the grapevine with a couple of friends, at first the service was great and the food came quickly and was nice. However, after dessert while we were still drinking our wine one of the waitresses approached our table and asked us to move as they wanted to fit in more people (who did not have a reservation)...

Visited on a Tuesday night for an early bite catching up with friends. The food was lovely and great for sharing. The recommended guide for ordering was 5 tapas for two people - we went a bit overboard ordering 14 for five people as we were hungry. Most of the dishes are very substantial and we struggled through the dishes.... More

The food was lovely I cant fault that. The only thing that it fell down on was the venue. The restaurant was too small and we were seated at first under the stairs but the waitress had no problem with changing our seats. The plates we were given to eat off unfortunately were saucers and I know tapas are served... More
