Spanish owned and closed on Sunday because the owner values time with her family, this bar has great service and lovely food and drink.. They serve a small snack with your drinks and the quality is good so it entices you to stay and eat.

This is a must for a snack and a drink. Little snack sandwiches (pinchos) are excellent value with a great selection of drinks available.

We had the tapas platter which you can see in the pictures already online. The staff were lovely, service was great, happy atmosphere without being too loud. Great view, decent food and great service. What more can you ask for?

Ended up in here unplanned for lunch one afternoon, had a few tapas and everything was delicious! Atmosphere and service was fantastic- we ended up staying on and as an added bonus saw the sunset on the horizon. Everything about this place was great. Would definitely return!
