Four of us dined here and enjoyed all the dishes. Very tasty, all steaming hot and actually pretty filling. We ordered 12 dishes on the recommendation of our waitress and all left satisfied. The only small niggle is when they serve 3 of something - even numbers work much better! And also some dishes were marked a tad high for... More

We have visited this place every time we have been to the Lakes. The atmosphere, food and drink improve every year. Really enjoy it!

Didn't get off to a great start as you walk in to the bar, ask for a table, they say oh yeah just go upstairs, so you do then they ask you to sit in an empty side of the restaurant and get yourself a drink until a tables ready for you, but don't take a name or anything.....so a... More

We thought this was a great Tapas Bar. The food was great and good size portions. The service even on a busy bank holiday was great. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone

This is a great bar and the only one I've come across like it in the lakes. Its lively and feels a bit more like a club scene with music and double bar area. Its what I call almost a club, its probably the best you will get if your looking for a night out in Bowness. I really like... More

We found this little gem and went back the following night. It had a brilliant atmosphere and even though we had to wait 45 min for a table the first night we had a great time waiting in the bar downstairs. Good food and well priced. Thoroughly enjoyed and would recommend. Try the ribs!

The food was delicious and the service was excellent even though it was a busy bank holiday weekend. Good value for money. 25 pounds each for 4 tapas dishes and 2 drinks. Good choice of beer on draft, especially the Spanish beers. Very authentic.

We decided to try this Restuarant with a bit of unease as the tapas bars and restaurants we have tried in England have fallen far short of the standard in Spain. This one is on par with the Spanish ones. The food was great, the drinks were good and the staff were outstanding. I think, but not sure that this... More
