Money well spent and those table sauces tend to go with everything. Food and drink combined are great value for money considering the service you get and a taste that's flying the flag for that part of deansgate. Their lunch deals are a treat too, but dinner time is more atmospheric.

Went with my grandaughter and her boyfriend. Lovely time. Even had cocktails. Food was different - something I had not tried before... Tried the tapas for starters, so many good different tastes.. Pinched some of my grandaughters doughnut things with chocolate sauce for dessert. Would go again - maybe at night.

We have eaten at this restaurant on several occasions and found it to be pretty good in the past. We re-visited yesterday (Thursday27th March) and enjoyed a few cocktails before ordering our food off the lunchtime menu,this was available until about 5pm from memory. My starter of chorizo in a smoky sauce arrived and I have never seen any dish... More

Thank you for your feedback on the new menu which launched last week and I am pleased to hear that you have enjoyed our food in the past. The lunch menu is a lighter express version of our menu so the starters are also smaller, cheaper versions of the a la carte starter dishes. I'm sorry if you were disappointed... More

We were there on a quiet dinner and the experience was very good. I had the Bahia Moqueca vegetarian option and I was very impressed. My friend had Chimichanga with Tinga chicken and it was also very good. The staff was amazing, explained the menu and asked us if we liked the food. To be honest, I didn't expect such... More

Never eaten here before, went tonight for a friends birthday, really liked the style of the place when I arrived and impressed with the menu! We had some Vegans, vegetarians & someone who is gluten intolerant and the menu catered for all this, which was brilliant. Unfortunately the quality of the food was pretty poor especially as the price point... More

Have eaten here twice in the last two weeks and both times food and especially the service were great. As a chain restaurant I didn't really have high expectations, but was pleasantly surprised. We were met at the door both times by very friendly staff who were attentive but not intrusive during our visit. Food was very nice, much tastier... More

Decided to go back to this restaurant after a great meal the time before. As it was a glorious day we decided to sit outside along with many others. We waited approx. 10 minutes as the waitress was in and out with food, but after about 15 mins we had to go in to get a menu and made it... More
