Prices were very reasonable and some of the menu choices we made were excellent, whilst others missed the mark and were not authentically Spanish. There were a few minor problems with one dish being very bland and another having a strong taste of raw garlic but overall it was acceptable for the amount charged. Serving staff were friendly though there... More

Friends we were with for the weekend had read a review about this restaurant in the Sunday post newspaper. Because they offered a" tapas menu" and also a "from the grill menu" it was the perfect choice for us. Have to say to ignore the outside of the place and also the entrance. They were a wee bit off putting.... More

A quaint restaurant over a bar that sells the most amazing burgers outside the USA. We have travelled and worked around the world and for a small restaurant it packs a huge menu with great value for money. I would advise that you book as they cater for around 15 and it does get booked easily, though you can eat... More

This was our first visit and we were impressed. My partner had the chilli burger which he really enjoyed, he had extras chips and coleslaw. I had the 4 tapas for £14.50 which was good value the portions were generous and I especially enjoyed the lamb meatballs in a spicy tomato sauce. Great value for money.
