Nice first try of tapas

Came here with my wife for my first try at tapas. Initially didnt have a clue what i fancied. Ordered 5 meals and wife ordered 4. We had a special offer so all portions 2.50 each on tapas tuesdays. All were lovely and will defo be going back. Works out expensive if you pay full price though.

Visited with a group of friends from work , for an early dinner. Staff were very helpful & knowlegable about the dishes. All of the tapas dishes that were ordered were delicious. The seafood paella was particularly good. Couldn't fault it. Good value for money too.

The menu looked very promising and I was looking forward to the food but when it arrived it wasn't that tasty, in fact it was rather bland. On a positive note the staff were lovely and the cocktails were nice.

Saturday afternoon in Durham in August - and the restaurant was nearly empty. That should have been a clue! Very welcome greeting from head of house - with the full restaurant to chose a location.

We have visited on a number of occasions over the last couple of years and generally the food has been great. The last occasion was just 6 weeks ago, however today the food and service was considerably poorer. We really enjoy the white fish in batter dish, however the quality of the fish was poor - thin and translucent and... More

This is a lovely eatery. It has a good atmosphere and we received a very warm welcome from a young Spanish guy who seemed to be in charge. .The mature manchego and sun dried tomatoes with bread and oils was delicious. The balsamic vinegar was sweeter than we might normally have expected and when I asked about it he showed... More

Visited for lunch, went for the "rapido" menu, I'm sure this means quickly but the service was certainly anything but. It took over 15 mins to be asked if we wanted a drink, this was after we went to the bar, asked if we should order a drink from there to be advised to do it from the table!! We... More
