This place is down a dark lane, so you will probably have been told about it or read about it here as we did. The menu is tapas like.

As recommended on Trip Advisor, we went to check out this place. A bit hard to find as its down a lane and not well marked but the place has great décor and charm. The Rioja red wine by the glass was spectacular and should not be missed. We also ordered that mixed Paella and while very good, it doesn’t... More

four friends visiting for dinner. Selected the tasting menu and Sangria. Food was excellent, and not too much. Sangria was flowing and the desert wine selection was worth a look.

We even got a couple of complimentary plates due to the recommendation. A very good taste of proper Spanish tapas and a good variety of dishes to suit all tastes. The price was very... More

Good choice of plates, had a mix of pequeño & mediano, couldn't try the paella because there were too many orders already in. Had an Argentinian Malbec that went down well.

Overall the dining experience was very good. We loved the menu and ate really well. The service was excellent and being up on the first floor was more intimate. We did find it a bit noisy but it was a Sat night and the table of early 20 something's next to us were on their 4th cocktail - not that... More

Walking down a random little laneway and you stumble upon a total gem of a restaurant that you would never have known was there had you not been having a massage across the way. I popped in for a glass of wine and ended up having some nibbles. Friendly service and excellent food. I can't wait to go back for... More
