Not bad tapas

Buzzing place with bar downstairs, if a bit pricey! Lots of tapas to choose from and the portion size was very generous, not bad all in all.

We visit here every time we come to the area. Sometimes just have a couple of bits whilst enjoying a drink and other times having a meal. We love how flexible it is and the relaxed atmosphere it has. Staff are always friendly and the prices are good.

Stopped in yesterday for a Chimay beer, hard to find so far on our trip through the UK. Decided the tapas menu looked good so arrived at about 6:15 the next evening. We were a bit disappointed that we couldn't sit at the bar to enjoy the tapas, but the rules are apparently that, after 6pm, tapas is only served... More

Ended up visiting twice in one week as enjoyed the food that much! Great value, choice and portion size. Our family of 8 cost £120 including drinks - bargain. Staff lovely and very helpful. Recommend a visit.

My partner and I were extremely looking forward to going to the tapas bar as it is something we have not tried before. We went into the bar around 6:30pm after we'd earlier visited and was told we didn't need to book as would get a table straight away. When we went in it took 15 minutes to get served... More

We were wandering around Keswick trying to decide where to eat dinner. We had eaten a lot of pub food since our arrival in England and were looking for something different. We spotted a sign for a tapas place and decided to give it a try. The selection of tapas was very large. We ordered about three each; they were... More

Always visit this restaurant when we stay in Bowness - it's reliably good. Informal, great atmosphere and lovely food. A taste of Spain in the the Lake District. Very reasonably priced too.
