Lovely food, friendly service, great value

Went here based on reviews and it didn't disappoint. We booked on line which was just as well because it was busy even at 6:30. The choice of tapas was great and grilled octopus special rea made it. It was off the beaten tourist track so we needed TA to point us to it. The waiters had to work... read more

Made our choice based on tripadvisor for the vegetarian options - and there were plenty! Very welcoming staff - good advice and a nice selection of tapas. The place was busy and had a good vibe. If you are veggie you will be spoilt for choice!

I came here on my birthday wishing for a little slice of home, but it was disappointing. We switched reservations for later, but were not told the kitchen closes at 11pm. As soon as we sat down we were told that the kitchen closes at 11 so we had to order at once. The soutsoukakia arrived totally cold inside, the... More

Great experience. Pleasantly surprised how good it was, especially for the price. We probably got about 10 or so plates with wine. Great menu.

Definitely a proper place to have some supper. Quality/price very worthy. Not only main dishes and tapas, but also desserts of high quality. Even limoncelo was very good. Highly recommended if you value mediterranean food.

We went there with a group of 8 friends. The service was good and the staff friendly. The food was Mediterranean: Greek, Turkish, Spanish, Lebaneese... The ingredients were fresh and the mezze tasted great. We had two round of 'surprise' mezze, one "small" (mostly cold dishes and vegies) and one "big" (meat balls, different meat stews, etc.). I liked the... More

First walked past this place during the day whilst visiting the market and thought, 'tapas? May be worth a go' so we decided to come back later and what a great choice we made, staff were friendly, great service and the food was excellent, they also offered a few dishes that weren't tapas, we had the chefs special which was...

A great restaurant, The service team is kind, the spanish and "greek" tapas are good, the place is nice. The only improvement that i can notice is the patatas bravas, which are like potatoes chips with dipping sauces. But it's only a detail. P.

This place is not the ordinary tapas restaurant, and by saying that i mean, it's not the expected spanish tapas that they serve. We choose their surprise dinner and let the chef put together a menu for us. a collection of starter tapas at the first serving and then later on a larger collection of other tapas as main course....
