We only booked with ten minutes to spare, and thank goodness we did as within 15 mins of our arrival every table had gone - and this was a Monday night. With a tapas menu to savour we chose five dishes between the two of us - we could not have managed any more! Loved the Aubergines in honey, garlic... More

We have been here many times and the food is excellent and great value. Service is also friendly and warm. Have experienced most dishes on the menu but tried the Spanish Stew thus time with lentils and chorizo which was lovely. Obviously had the usual favourites to accompany the above! Don't hesitate to go. Thanks to all the staff! Wish... More

I love Spanish good as as a few of my friends are from Spain I've learnt to be very picky about it.. Saying that, I cannot fault this place. Absolutely incredible. Every single dish is absolutely delicious and the service is just as delicious. The experience itself is just as perfect as the food and would highly recommend this place... More

Every time we visit food is consistently good but the slow roasted lamb was excellent. Cava was really good too

Had a mid-week evening meal here with a few friends. Service was very friendly and atmosphere lovely. We ordered two tapas dishes each and I have to say I think we over ordered as we couldn't finish it all. All delicious esp the chorizo and the patatas bravas. Squid could have been a little crispier but didn't feel the need... More

While the food had a homely taste it was nowhere near the quality I expected. Lots of choices on menu for vegetarians, meat and fish eaters. Over all I was underwhelmed, my friends thoroughly enjoyed their oxtail casserole though. The portions were quite large for tapas so 2 dishes each proved way too much. The house red wine was very...

We spent a weekend in Brighton earlier in the year and wanted somewhere nice to go out for lunch with the family. We selected this restaurant based on Trip Advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. When we arrived the restaurant was packed and we half expected not to get in but fortunately we managed to get the last table,... More

Having spent a touring holiday in Spain I was pleasantly surprised that the menu here was so vast. Spoiled for choice. If it wasn't for the truly delicious food I ordered I think I would have had food envy as plates arrived at neighbouring tables. Staff attentive, food fantastic and great ambience. Pop in and do not miss this gem... More
