Wanted somewhere different to go for birthday & was not disappointed. The small sign street level doesn't indicate what is waiting below - a cross between NY and Barcelona urban chic. Lovely bar area and a large expanse for dining. You don't feel like you are on top of others. It was a Tuesday & I'm glad I booked. It... More

Came for dinner and the entrees were excellent - the combined meat platter with the Jamon pâté was outstanding - the croquettes were creamy and delicious. The paella was ok - great crust. A nice bottle of rose topped off an enjoyable night.

A great semi casual place for a family birthday celebration. The food was great and the meat on the metal hangers looked great. Good cocktails and a nice ambience if a tad noisy.

I hosted an end of year dinner here for a small group of people. We had a set menu, which included an excellent range (and in good quantities) of dishes. The food was authentic and really flavoursome. One of the party was vegetarian, and the staff provided an excellent range of alternatives within the set menu for her at no... More
