A very reliable, consistently good tapas place in the heart of the village. The tapas are always of a very high standard, the service brisk, friendly and efficient. Now they have extended in to the premises next door, there is not so much pressure to get you out the door. I love coming here

We eat lunch here a lot and it's always good but it's even better sitting on the pavement in the sunshine. The part pedestrianisation of Orford Rd and the growing number of interesting shops and restaurants gives this location a real Mediterranean feel. The tapas is authentic and tasty. The staff are chilled and efficient. It's not cheap but you... More

Went here for Sunday lunch. Food OK, bit pricey for size of dishes. Service not very good and not at all friendly, I don't think the staff wanted to be there! Completely lacking in atmosphere. They added 12.5% service charge as we were a party of 6 which we complained about and they took off. I don't know why they... More

Visited here for the first time as a group of 3 the other day. We were able to book a table with short notice which was great, and all the dishes we ordered were fantastic. However, throughout the two hours we were there, the service was...less than favorable. Within 2 minutes of being sat down, we'd had someone offer to... More

Lovely feel to this restaurant, very easy to book a table. Greeted by friendly staff who were attentive without being a nuisance . Great menu. Tapas when served was gorgeous. Great house wine and very reasonable prices. Well worth a visit, will be returning. Good location too.

We thought the food here was a bit disappointing. It was a relatively limited menu and the food was ok but not especially tasty. It was packed and is obviously really popular but really pricey for the quality of food. Good service.

I came here first of all with my partner and it was so good i came back for my dads birthday. The food choice is rather varied and a good selection between seafood, meats and vegetables. We ordered a different dish each between the 6 of us and shared them all then reordered the ones we enjoyed the most (which... More

A bit like the Tardis, this restaurant opens up to far more space than it looks like from outside. The food is superb, the service excellent and the chorizo and mushroom tapas is to die for!

very good value for money - lovely food and very modestly priced wine. I would definitely go back. The service was very attentive and efficient and the tapas dishes were very enjoyable. We had ten dishes between four of us and there was plenty of food. I would recommend the battered fish and the prawns. I will definitely return

Food fresh, great for sharing, can look a bit dark from outside, but if you can get a table through the back of the restaurant, you will find a nice bright seating area.
