We visited a couple of years ago and had a lovely experience - a late night cocktail made by a lovely bartender. This trip we visited hoping for the same experience. Obnoxious bartender made me a horrible cocktail with a warm mixer in it. It was meant to be a gin cocktail with rose water. It had rose syrup instead... More

Always a favourite, has a great buzz with lots of atmosphere. Good range of wines by the glass and an enjoyable range of both small and larger tapas. Excellent value.

We didnt sit down until 1045pm - not a problem on a Friday night and the staff were happy to accommodate us. The tapas dishes were great, including the chorizo and peppers. I had a dessert too and also tried a Portuguese red wine. Not something I would have normally gone for, but a great recommendation from the bar man.... More

Arrived to a busy bustling bar, we were moved to a side bar to have a drink whist we waited for a spot at the main bar. Our cocktail waiter/ waiter was fantastic providing constant entertainment throughout the evening. Food was very good, maybe a little expensive but the experience, flavours and flare made it worth it. Número Ocho one... More

AMAZING experience for the taste buds. Little cozy bar full of life and good vibes. Everything we tried on the menu was simply delicious and had us wanting more! Needless to say we walked out very satisfied and will definitely go back

Really enjoyed a couple of hours at this bar. Have a great selection of wines and bar food. Had a fantastic local Rose which I would recommend. The atmosphere is very charming and you feel relaxed as soon as you walk in. Will be back

I have been here with friends on five occasions over a couple of years and keep coming back because of the sophisticated but relaxed vibe & the fabulous wine list. The food - I fear - may have slipped a little in recent times. On my last visit the "roasted morcilla, lentils & pancetta" was filling but terribly dull -... More
