“fantastic food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

We have eaten here twice now, both meals have been excellent, can't fault the service, atmosphere or price. Easily the best tapas we have had on the island, will be going back for more.

“Could have been better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

On the plus side we enjoyed the food. The tapas portions were generous, fresh and hot. However, even allowing for the fact that this was tapas there were long intervals between getting them so much so that we thought they'd actually forgotten the last one and were thinking about desert. What spoilt the evening (and this is probably a better lunch venue) was the ambience. The location and decor was fine but the smoking section is very near to the rest of the diners and the smoke kept drifting our way and the owners' two year old running around and screaming and having to sit in the middle of her toys didn't really do it for us. Shame as could have been so much better.

“Real Spanish Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2014 via mobile

This place certainly lives up to its TA reviews, and then some. Only problem is finding it if using the map refs from Trip Advisor or google, both of which are completely wrong - we only found it on our third night of searching. It's actually in the commercial centre along with British chippy, German doctor and Burger King.
Easily the best tapas in Town. Such nice people too. As everyone else has said, don't be put off by the location or appearance.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

As most others have said...

- Not the best location
- Warm friendly hosts...if a bit manic!
- Food reasonably priced and good
- great for kids
- food arrives as and when ready
- locals eat here which is always a good sign
- will return before trip is over
- don't let the football scarves put you off!

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014

What a lovely a lovely place. The location does not make a difference to this restaurant. The owner is fantastic he is extremely friendly but not pushy even the chef who you can see cooking is friendly. We had two different meals I had tapas whilst my husband had a filler steak. The owner comes and shows you the cut of meat and also showed other customers the choice of fresh fish. The steak was cooked perfectly and my tapas was excellent along with the house wine. This was definitely the best meal we had and went back again sorry we hadn't found it sooner.
