“Fantastic Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

I loved this place, a little hidden gem and wow food amazing, but a very busy place, very popular. Quaint tables with beautiful bright flowers to make it real summery.

“Very busy so make sure you book”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

As we hadn't booked, we were very fortunate to get the last table for 2 people. We shared about 4 tapas meals that were quite large for a tapas and extremely tasty. It was a lovely night to sit at one of the outside tables. The staff were attentive and our meal came out quite quickly even though they were very busy.

“Very disappointing and very rude service-can not comment on food or value as we Had to leave before we had any food!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013 via mobile

We had booked for a birthday night only to be told on arrival when we had to leave as
Another booking was to follow-we were reminded of this throughout our short stay- we were not offered any food and were really pressured to leave....we waited for our
Party to arrive and in fact were eager to leave....and spend our $1000 dollars elsewhere. Management and staff have a
Lot to learn about the hospitality industry
And how to at least be polite to their customers....A couple of nights previously one of our party asked could they ring a taxi
And we're given a card with taxi number and were told to ring it yourself!!! Unbelievable but true....

“Excellent tapas after a day on the wine trail”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

The food was great at this little tapas bar, and a great wine list. The calamari was very tender, and it was nice to find things like duck breast on the menu. The nectarine bruchetta was also great. There is liberal olive oil on lots of the dishes, and some are served on salad leaves which are dressed, and we were a bit olive-oiled-out by the time we left, but it also could have been what we ordered. Overall we will defintely come back!
