Nice for a couple or foursome

My 10th time eating there and staff and management always good. Food is good value and a great place for a small birthday celebration ( go upstairs if there's more than 6 of you).

We have eaten at this restaurant/bar twice and both times we have been incredibly impressed. The first time we sat in the bar area and had a great tapas meal. We enjoyed it so much we decided that we should try the a la carte menu (dining upstairs) at a later date. The a la carte meal was brilliant. The... More

We visited here 11/07/15 with friends who know the place well despite being near to food service ending we were accommodated with no fuss. The 2 gents had the fillet steak which was beautiful and we had tapas which was delicious and would highly recommend to anyone. The staff are friendly the owner is such a lovely lady we will...

We ate downstairs which is more of a bar atmosphere rather than a restaurant - this we didn't expect. The food was fantastic and we can not complain. However, we were 3 females alone when a brawl broke out between the staff and a member of the public. We had to flee our table in fear. This is is not... More

Went here with a friend the other evening and had crab cakes and confit duck leg. My friend also had the duck. The crab cakes were soft, not fried , way too Limey and sour. The Duck was horrible. The mash was tasteless the red wine jus was sour. The whole meal was sour and they had hard stick like... More

We often drink in Zabranos but decided to eat here this evening as it has been some time since we last did. We opted for the Tapas menu and I have to say it was most enjoyable. In particular the pork belly and halloumi were excellent but all the dishes we ordered we enjoyed. We look forward to trying the... More

For the occasional meal out this place is for you. Lovely food and friendly staff. The only time we had a problem here it was as a result of the smokers outside. The doors were open and the smoke fumes were drifting in, no problem if you're a smoker!

Where to start..well; - massively overpriced - average food - shocking service - we had to listen to the same 4 songs over and over for 2 hours - brownie was much worse that anything one might find with in a packet with a yellow ticked on in at happy shopper And to top it all, we were told that...

We went through stage of having all of our special occasion meals here. We always had the lamb to share between all of us as they will make it up for however many people you have there. Always delicious and great starters and desserts too! My only complaint is with the lighting. i just find it ever so slightly too... More
