Had been here before but not for a few years, so looked at recent reviews and decided to try the £10 tapas. The place was almost fully booked, but they managed to seat us and we had the most amazing food. It all tasted sooo good. All 4 of us came out totally stuffed. I also love the laid back... More

My boyfriend and I came here for the "Tapas for a tenner" deal, where for £10 each, you can have as much tapas as you like, albeit from a smaller menu, and also visit the salad bar as much as you want. The service was very friendly with the owner himself making sure we were enjoying the food. I particularly... More

Ate here after reading reviews on trip advisor. Nice enough evening went for the £10 deal which was basic but pleasant. Very good if you are on a budget!

I choose this restaurant on the strength of Trip Advisor reviews and was not disappointed. The staff were friendly and welcoming from the start, the food was good value and there was a great atmosphere. The choice for vegetarians is also good. All in all a very pleasant way to spend a Friday night.

I had a seat in the bar and ate a pleasant nicely proportioned tapas selection comfortably and enjoyed the excellent Estrella Damm. draught beer imported from Barcelona and only £3.80 a pint. I was able to observe the departing diners, a variety of age groups, families, couples, foursomes, singles parties, all left looking very happy and contented. As each party... More

I was there with my sister and Mum, she is disabled, they were lovely with her the food was oh so nice. Huge choice but we never got past 3 courses as we were new to tapas and ordered lots. All the food was presented well and it was a smashing evening. Thankyou all

Friendly attentive service, good value £10 deal b4 7:30. Perhaps a good intro to Tapas but the quality is no more than average and plates were unimaginative and uninspiring (we chose from al a carte) More of a bar than a restaurant experience which is fine if that's what you expect.
