A very good small but perfectly former tapas selection complemented by a very good small but perfectly formed (and reasonably priced) wine list. Nice decor and ambience, unpretentious but comfortable and the service was excellent. Portion sizes are fine and the calamari was as tasty as I've had pretty much anywhere. We'd had an extremely pleasant day and this was... More

Just right for an early evening wine and tapas in Richmond. Tasty tapas and efficient service. Tried a number of dishes, all very good and homemade. Very comfortable seating at the window watching the Richmond world go by.

When we complained waiter said he understood, the manager disappeared and no discount was offered. Wine was good! Lots of Spanish people in restaurant they were all drinking only.... More

Great wine list and nice tapas selection. Was intrigued to see that they have live music on Sunday nights so will be popping in for that!

This wine bar has a good selection of decent Spanish wines. The Canarian barman is an agreeable chap. Unfortunately the owner is not.

Visited expecting to enjoy a lovely summers evening of tapas only to be greeted by a rude lady that was front of house! Even though the place was empty we were Instructed to sit closely together so to minimise the space we were occupying?? We decided to quickly leave and seek an alternative more welcoming and deserving establishment!

Very friendly, really good genuine tapas. Proper small bites with a drink. More of a bar with good snacks than a restaurant though.

We had tastecard so got 50% off the food menu so it was quite a good bargain! The tapas were really good - portions were quite small though. We tried almost the whole menu and all of them were surprisingly good! It's probably one of the best spanish restaurants I have been to in London. Nice staff and cozy
