Mediocre tapas

The outdoor seating on the steps of the narrow street looked cool and attracted us to the restaurant. However, the food was mediocre at best. Breaded cheese tasted and looked like it was from the freezer. Potato side dish was plain. Prawn risotto was good though. Pricey too considering there are... read more

After walking around the area looking for somewhere to eat we stopped here as we liked the seating set up, set outside on the stairs outside the restaurant, and it looked popular. We found the service to be good, atmosphere was great, the food was Ok (not bad but nothing to rave about) but I must agree with other reviewers... More

We stumbled across this place after walking round for ages looking for a tapas bar. Although pricey we found the service friendly and the food tasty. We had Spanish omlette with chorizo, garlic prawns, veal stew and mixed croquettes ( they call them wraps). The house wine was good and my girlfriend had chocolate moose to finish which she loved....

Sitting outside in a quiet street, great ambience. The Tapas are very good but a little expensive. The service is very good.

Before dinner the seatings on the stairs of Tapas 28 caught our eye. We didn't bother to read some online reviews for once... and we regretted it instantly one hour later. We ordered some tapas (a variation of rolls) and some red wine. We were presented by a plate with some bread and toppings. The wine was okay and the... More

We found this restaurant down a side street. After waiting inside for quite some time as the woman on the front did not realise we were willing to sit inside or out, we received excellent service from the waiter who served us. We had to wait a while to be seated, but were not disappointed with the food. The price... More
