Very nice tapas - very authentic

A very good eatery serving a very wide range of tasty tapas . Service very quick if you're in a hurry , but not rushed either . Portion sizes for kebabs are a bit little for the price but the veg dishes are excellent . Wine needs a bit of a cool . All in all a very good 4... read more

This is just a fun, unpretentious place to go to, especially in the middle of a bland winter, for a taste of Mediterranean sun. Great selection of tapas and friendly staff always ready with a recommendation. Tasty food served quickly and ideally located close to the station for a quick or a relaxed meal.

Recently ate here after a 6 year absence - Thursday night meal out with my wife. Firstly, you can't book a table and we were lucky to get one at 8pm. The place was packed and had a great atmosphere. The service was good and brisk. The menu is great - though I was disappointed to see the peppers stuffed... More

Having lived in Spain and experiencing the best that Spanish cuisine has to offer, I was a little dubious about this restaurant as we entered...but we needed a change, the menu looked good, and all of the diners who were leaving were smiling, so we decided to see if it was just the wine..... (which was good!) We decided to... More

Despite the negative reviews I read online, I decided to visit, and I'm glad I did. There are a lot of Spanish restaurants that do not live up to expectation - once you have had tapas in Spain, the bar is set very high. We had 4 tapas dishes, a bread and alioli basket and red sangria. Everything we ordered... More

Stopped in here with a large group and left hungry with a bad taste in my mouth. Service was terribly slow and unwelcoming. My meatballs had a film of skin on the sauce, indicating that they'd been left sitting for quite a while, and tasted of nothing. Zero flavour. The rest of the food was similarly below par. I'd suggest... More

This is a conveniently located restaurant with a relaxed vibe and satisfying food. They do not take bookings except for very large groups, but the place is probably large enough to accommodate drop-by dining on most nights. We were a foursome who arrived at 7:30 on a Saturday night, and had a choice of tables. There is a range of... More

Clearly a convenient meeting point but this restaurant disappoints big time. How can a Spanish restaurant serve its white Rioja at room temperature and try to pass off pathetic little tasteless barely unfrozen shrimp as a tapas for near seven pounds. Paella is bearable but not of any consequence to redeem the many failings.

Unauthentic. The sea bass was over cooked and rubbery, the salad was cheap, tasteless and watery and the fried potatoes were basically cut up frozen chips with no flavour at all. All of the ingredients seemed to be of very poor quality. There must be something fishy going on with most of the reviews for this place as it's hard... More

The flavour, the staff, the quickness of the service on a Saturday night..All Excellent! Really excelled my expectations and I would definately recommend and come here again! Thank you!
