A friend and I ate here one night last week. We chose to get the $40pp option that included three tapas, bread, salad and paella. To be honest, the food wasn't great. We got the garlic prawns, calamari, and ham croquettes, all of which weren't that tasty. The paella was generous, but much too salty. I think that is overpriced... More

Reasonable price but foods are a bit salty. Service was a bit slow and we have to raise our hands up to get attention.

I have come here a few times with my partner. We have tried the paella, and many of the tapas. My favourites are the ham croquettes, garlic mushrooms, crumbed eggplant and chorizo. We always ask for extra aioli for everything. This place is great for a group of friends, especially on a Monday night where they have castanet dancers for... More

My husband and I went here on a 50% discount offer and when we first saw the price of some d the tapas we were relieved (garlic prawns $17.50) however the serving sizes were quite generous on the dishes we ordered. The calamari was tender, the black pudding delicious and the crispy potatoes were yummy. With friendly service we Will... More

Passed by this restaurant many times in the last few years, always bustling with customers, great music and atmosphere. I think the popularity is due to its Sangria and not the quality of food. Met some friends here on a Sunday for an early dinner. The staff were friendly and gave us a table for four by the window. There... More

Great food and exquisite service! I had jamon to start with followed by seafood paella and sangria! Food was really good, but service was just excellent! Highly recommend this place.

Went there for a lunch and ordered some "mains" which turned out to be as small as entrees and overpriced. Tastes were allright, but nothing special. Had to go to another place afterwards to actually feel like we've eaten something... The person serving us was not even trying to be friendly and even looked a bit annoyed.

If you're under 35 or dont look rich then dont go to this place! Me and my boyfriend went there with a bottle of wine, after looking at the menu we had decided on the $40 banquet. As soon as we walked in, the patronising manager told us it wasn't BYO and that we would "have" to spend at least... More

I am a sucker for tapas restaurants, to the point where I rarely walk past, I will often pop in if just for one or two small plates and a glass of wine. On this day I decided to do just that only it wasn't received the best by our waiter who was obviously annoyed we weren't ordering up a... More
