A first visit but definitely not my last. I love tapas and this was some of the best I have had for a long time. Good value for money and a good location. To paraphrase Douglas McArthur ' I will return'. New management doing a fantastic job!!!

Good meal out with friends, well spaced out restaurant, we were a group of 6 and other large groups were there too without it feeling rowdy! Food and drinks were as to be expected with tapas, shame there wasn't any spicier dishes but all in all a great dining experience!

I've eaten here 3 times in the last year and its always been great. We always go for the delicious, great value tapas deal preceded by a cold meat platter, and sometimes followed by a fresh, tangy Tom Collins. The restaurant itself is a very nice setting and has a great atmos when busy. If dining as a couple, try... More

I've eaten here about ten times and never been disapointed. The food is always tasty, well presented, hot and served in an amenable and pleasant atmosphere. The staff are all excellent and the price for more Tapas than both me and my wife can eat at £30 is just right. If you're after a different drink , try the Blue... More

I have drank in the riverside before but have never eaten in there. Four of us went for my finances birthday, the restaurant is welcoming and nicely laid out. We all had the tapas which was absolutely delicious. We will definitely be returning again. Lovely atmosphere and friendly staff.

I love the tapas here, there is always a wide variety to pick from and it never dissapoints, it is slightly pricey but its a nice starter point before going out! Not too heavy but still filling enough to have a few drinks after!

I have eaten here quite a few times now on dates and with friends and it's been great for both occasions. The selection of tapas is great, especially the chilli chicken goats cheese dish! The 6 dishes and a bottle of wine offer is perfect for a couple... Or for a group of friends... Maybe even for one person if... More

Staff chatted amongst themselves nearly all night very un helpful always having to get their attention if you required anything. The food was disappointing as unless you want tapas nothing else on the menu. Will not be returning for a special occasion or evening meal. However the bar downstairs has a great atmosphere and is a fantastic bar to enjoy... More
