I've never had a bad meal here and I have visited this place quite a few times. Tapas are honestly so delicious and the cocktails as well! Staff always so friendly and polite. I think they should work more on advertising the restaurant, as people need to try this place out.

I can't say I have ever eaten here, but as a bar/club, I love this place. It will always be the first stop when I return to Canterbury, a great place with a real cosmopolitan/mixed crowd!

Very disappointed, our party was seated right beside the pathway from the kitchen and the restaurant area. It took a long time between the starter and our party receiving their main course, in fact it took nearly an hour for some of our party to receive their main courses and when they did arrive they were inedible - tough.

Our starter and main courses came together because the waiter put the starters through as side orders. No attempt was made to rectify this, we just had to get on with eating it all together. The waitress apologised, but it was a shame because this spoilt the experience and enjoyment of the good food. Train your staff!

£5 each to get in, drinks are reasonable, open for all ages, ideally 18-45. Music for all ages. It is located in the High Street opposite Costa coffee. Good smoking area if you smoke, 2 dance floors too. Did not eat there so can't comment on that. Good night out though

Popped in early Saturday evening just for a cocktail. We happen to arrive as Happy Hour was starting and ended up staying for 3 hours as the promo was 2-4-1 cocktails. Definitely recommend the raspberry mojito. Ordered some tapas to go with the drinks. Good selection and quite tasty. Lovely outdoor seating area and pretty cool latino music beats coming... More
