Ok tapas not more

Had dinner here and the food was ok but not anything special. Everything was very heavy seasoned with garlic and that was pretty much the only taste in all dishes.

Some dishes are excellent, some are poor... The restaurant does have a traditional feel but the inconsistency of the dishes is unfortunate. Wine however is good value.....

We started with a Calamari starter, very dodgy, not great at all however the main meal was awesome. My wife and my self ordered sea bass and it was absolutely lovely. Would like to return and try another meal, hopefully this time they get a 10 out of 10

A slightly dodgy start as the restaurant was swamped by people coming in from the cricket. Once they got into the swing of things it picked right up. We were a table of ten but the dishes just kept coming at the right pace. We left full and well watered for less than thirty quid a head.

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.

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... More

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
