“Best tapas in the UK”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

Although I went here one Thursday night in September, I can still remember the details because the evening was simply fantastic! Having lived in Seville, going for tapas is something I love doing (although the standards are usually hard to beat). However, we were presented with an excellent selection of tapas, very friendly staff and an overall lovely atmosphere! My only regret is that I hadn't been there sooner!!! HIGHLY recommend it.

“Loved it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

We went last week for the first time & weren't disappointed. Great atmosphere, friendly & efficient staff & brilliant food. Our only slight issue was the size of the portions, which for tapas were pretty big. It would be nice if they cut the portion size (& price) so we could fit more in!! If you're after great tapas in a small, lively setting, then this is the place for you!

“Yum!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Great typical spanish tapas. Very friendly service too.

Tables are close together, however this just reminded us more of the tapas bars in Barcelona.

Worth a visit, but book ahead

“genuine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

What i love about this spanish restaurant is the feeling of "real" spanish food,although small it reminds me of the little Casas in Spain itself.
