Ate here on a Saturday, very nice food at pretty reasonable prices. Had tapas for 2 people and a good bottle of Rioja for under £50, much better value and quality than the chain tapas bars.

We've eaten at the well known tapas chain and after eating here realise they serve warmed up muck. Everything we had was so tasty from meat to fish to veggie... More
