Fantastic tapas

What a device tapas bar. Excellent service and perfect food. Atmosphere very Spanish and a warm welcome from a very hard working waitress. She deserves a Payrise. If we lived closer we would be visiting regularly. Highly recommended.

My son (who's 5) and I like to go for a Mother and Son date night where it is just me and him. We chose the Tapas as I like him to experience different foods and atmospheres. I must say I am glad we did. It was opening night for the new owners and they made us feel very welcome,... More

The venue is lovely and really atmospheric. The service is fantastic and really personable. The gin menu is to die for and the food is amazing! Only very minor point is that the salad bar is a bit disappointing but who cares if everything else is fabulous?

The restaurant was quiet when we arrived but quickly filled up! The food was delicious and there was plenty of choice including vegetarian options. We also sampled some gins from the... More

I had dinner here with my partner and we both enjoyed it immensely. The menu was excellent with an impressive selection of meat, fish and vegetarian choices. We had the meat platter to start and followed with various small dishes. I can recommend the Pollo Pimenthon and the Chuletillas de Corder in particular. The only dish I was disappointed in... More

Visited on the first night of our break in ilfracombe. We were staying in an apartment on Fore Street, so the restaurant was ideal for us as it was on our doorstep. We didn't prebook and the restaurant was very busy however they were able to accommodate us with a table in the bar area. We opted for the set... More

We had a lovely evening at this restaurant! The food was great and the tapas offer reasonably priced. Dining with my husband and then 3 year old son, the ambiance was just fantastic! Best to book before hand! Would definitely recommend!

This restaurant is quite small so during peak times it is best to book. Whilst on holiday in Devon for the last two summers my two teenagers and their friends and I have visited several times (it was everyone's favourite place!) and on each occasion the service and the food was excellent. My daughter is vegan and the staff were... More
