Visited here recently and it’s just the best tapas ever. Just back from Palma and nothing over there came close to this. The restaurant and ambience is just perfect. Had a wonderful time there

This is one of our favorite drinks spots (food is good too) and on this occasion we both had large gin and tonics - perfect way to start our evening in Covent Garden.

Would probably have walked past if I hadn’t read the reviews. Dinner on a busy Friday evening, we didn’t have to wait long for a table. Quick, friendly service and delicious food. The menu includes a lot of choice, maybe too much, resulting in us...More
