Easily located just opposite Southgate tube station this place has provided consistently good food every time I have eaten there...now maybe 4 times since it opened. The menu is pleasingly brief and is authentically Spanish. Service is friendly & helpful, and the prices reasonable.

I love that this is a family run business, and everyone gets involved. Miguel is a welcoming host, and I was lucky enough to have my birthday party here. The food was delicious and the service was amazing.

Been looking for a good Spanish restaurant within striking distance of Watford. 25 minutes but well worth the drive. Authentic Spanish food in a restaurant where the staff and atmosphere make you feel very welcome.
