I've eaten here on previous occasions and always enjoyed the food. I don't know why it was so poor this time. There were less options on the menu and a few things weren't available, leaving limited choice, there was only one waitress rushed off her...More

Terrible food served. 3 things on the menu weren't available. When our food was brought out it was cold and tasted dreadful. Waitress also forgot to serve the drinks we asked for. Avoid at all cost. 😡

Good tapas, reasonable prices, great wine! Enjoyed it, although I can see why some criticise, I had a very good meal.

We went to this restaurant having spotted it before, however it was dead. No wonder the food wasn't that good at all. The wine & sangria were great, hence why I have given 2 stars. The meatballs came out in under a minute after ordering!...More

Thanks for your feedback and are sorry to hear you weren't satisfied with the quality of our food. However, we find it rather offensive and defamatory to call our restaurant a microwave Spanish restaurant, when we would like to stress that we use freshly ingredients,...More
