Stopped in for a late lunch and enjoyed the Triple Cream Brie and Veggie Flatbread, both rated excellent. A good selection of wines by the glass at very reasonable prices and they have Redbridge beer for those who want a gluten free beer. Difficult to make a decision of what to order whether it's their Extensive Tapas, dips, flatbreads, wings,... More

Went looking for a place to eat and when we arrived realized it was a bar. However this isn't just a bar they made my cocktail just the way I like it and the selection of appetizers are big in flavor and big in portion size. They call the food Tapas which instantly gave me the idea this was going... More

Went here based on the menu you had posted on your site. It shows the restaurant has a wider menu than just tapas. We were looking for dinner. The waitress said she has tried to update trip advisor that they only serve tapas-no lunch or dinner entrees and trip advisor has answered that there is nothing that can be done... More

This was a great find! We loved the food. They have a lot of different things to choose from. We were there with another couple and between us we tried a huge variety of tapas. They call them tapas but actually they are more like american appetizers - they are huge and you really don't need to order very many... More

Went to check out this place and it was a disappointment .i think it's just a bar with very large tapas . Not very good quality food. Lots of carbs no protein. The cheese platter was ok. The service was poor. One good thing was the band! . I will keep searching for a place that has good food and... More

Visited for the first time with friends last night. The drinks and food were delicious. Definitely not a typical bar with twenty-somethings roaming around. Good prices and a small, but very nice atmosphere. Our group was very casual, we saw others that were more dressy, but all were welcomed and fit in. Good place to meet before or after a... More

My three traveling friends (one being my hubby) have never experienced tapas so I thought this would be a great exposure to what I consider a fun experience. We had had a heavy lunch so I thought this would be a perfect fit. This is a small, cozy little place just a few hundred yards from the Hampton Inn. Our... More
