Formerly a Turkish place. And before that a Turkish again. Decor seems exactly the same although very pleasant. Cream and red leather chairs, wooden tables, light walls.
Visited on its opening Saturday evening. Staff were young, attentive and friendly, and most importantly of all actually Spanish (or at least spoke Spanish). This all helped as you can imagine adding to the authenticity of the experience.
Drank cold San Miguels and listened to Spanish Music being piped around. Now this may sound formulaic and cliched, but it worked. We were having a hoot before the tapas even came.
They were better than anticipated actually (in part owing to such low expectations after some stinkers of meals out recently). All the usual suspects ordered. The ones that didn't require cooking were good produce (fresh octopus / breads / plate of 4 cheeses etc). The ones that did require cooking were neither a let down (prawns in garlic butter was a little belter / albondigas very moreish / calamari served immediately and crisp). Couple of other dishes too that I can't recall as it was weeks ago now.
Espressos with amaretto to polish off. All reasonably priced i felt. Left feeling satisfied and with nice tapas of well being. Will be back at some point.
