I'm a regular here but last time I went it was much lower quality than usual - pretty bland fish sharing platter. Tried again this weekend and afraid it's still on downward trend. We were recommended the padron peppers as a special - these were described by waitress as being spicy but were almost raw and only tasted of the... More

Waited 20 mins to get served even got up to point this out and still nothing so walked out! No sign of an apology won't be back.

I booked online and received email confirmation. When my parents arrived they were told that the table was booked for 6pm, in fact we were booked for 5.45 (confirmed by email). The waitress sat my parents at the bar. When myself and my husband arrived they took us straight to our seats, so we were confused why they couldn't sit... More

Well worth a visit. Nice welcome, background music 🎶 and funky tables made from barrels. Varied choice of Tapas to choose from & all which we had were fresh, hot & delicious.

I ate here recently with a small family group and it was most enjoyable. I have eaten with friends and on business and it always works. There is a great choice of dishes on the menu although I have so many core favourites I rarely get a chance to try new ones, and the choice of drinks, be it beer,... More

We were on a day trip in York today and were a bit peckish, we walked around and couldn't find anything that grabbed our attention until we walked past this place. We had a quick look at the menu and a quick scan on here and decided to go in and order. They have a huge selection on the menu,... More

Nice place but no one in. Ordered flight #1 on the sherry list bit didn't really like any of the 3 drinks. Food was slow coming out as the chef dropped our sharing plate so had to start again. When it arrived there were some items missing so had them separately later on, when we pointed it out to the... More

Really good Tapas. Wide selection at reasonable prices. We will try their sister site in Fossgate when we return to York next year. The sherry samplings were a killer - good thing I wasn't driving!
