Lovely food and great buzz in this tiny little restaurant more space and tables upstairs but lovely to be in downstairs. Great tapas selection, ox cheeks amazing and lovely wine to be sampled. Apparently does amazing roast dinners but I haven't had one.

Visited on a Friday evening. It was busy but not crowded. All staff were friendly and welcoming. Giving advice on menu and bistro itself. The chill manchego was a delight! Choice was great. I’m veggie and would return again. Only small issue was toilet facilities....More

Last minute choice on where to eat. On entry wasn’t too sure but the warm friendly welcome quickly changed our opinion. The menu was varied and good sized tapas portions. 4 selections are more than enough! Will be back.
