Make sure to book in advance, especially if you go there on the weekend. Very welcoming staff and service is friendly at all times. Our waiter was very helpful, offering advice on the menu and also providing some recipe details. Food is absolutely amazing, everything we tried was good, from veggies, pasta, meat and sweets... We went there with friends... More

My friend and I were made to feel exceptionally welcome on arrival, and things just got better from there. Our waiter was attentive, but not invasive, with an incredible confidence in the food that they serve, and also knew the menu extremely well. Out wine and water was topped up without us noticing or even having to look around to... More

Great service. Amazing tapas. Each bite is a taste explosion. Very relaxed atmosphere. 5 stars cannot fault a single thing.

We went there twice. We liked it so much the first time that we were afraid to have a different feeling the second time. It was as good as the first time. I miss it at home. Tapas are really nice and the place is cosy. You have to book as it is not big.

My wife and I dropped by here for lunch and just loved the taster menu. So we came back for dinner with friends and had a marvellous time with some absolutely outstanding food. It's tapas but with an African twist!
