First of all, I have to say that I've only been once and therefore only tried half a dozen of the many, many dishes. Perhaps we chose unwisely; the chicken and chorizo dish was pretty good (and the Muga Rioja was excellent) but the other dishes we had were only so-so.

A nice little Spanish restaurant tucked away on Little Clarendon Street. They have an excellent value lunchtime menu, where you can order your choice of two tapas dishes with a huge portion of fresh bread for just £8.50. I was pleasantly surprised by the size of each tapas portion (huge!) & also the choices for veggie customers. I particularly recommend... More

Been here a couple of times and, on both occasions, the food has been very good and the staff excellent. On both visits I have had the tapas and it is good. Quality is fine and portions good and personally I think it represents good value for money. As I say the food quality is fine, I have probably had... More

Lively place, but too many fried things. I guess this is what tapas is about but with a bit more attention food could be less heavy. Would go again for the ambience.

I dined in this lovely restaurant for my birthday and I would recommend it to whoever wants to enjoy a wonderful meal. We ordered Patatas Bravas and Vegetable Paella. I will definitely go there again soon.

This restaurant is lousy. The food is not only poor quality, but the price of the tapas add up pretty quickly.

Ideal place to go if you fancy trying lots of different tapas with a good beer. The selection of tapas is wide although they don't come cheap..but portions are quite generous. The paella for two is served piping hot and it's plenty to share, however the rice was too cooked. The atmosphere is fun and a Spanish girl treats customers... More

This modestly sized restaurant contains excellent Spanish tapas and paella. We have tried this place a number of times and the experience been consistently delicious. The flavours are authentic (as good as we've had in Barcelona). Highlights are the pimientos padron, cod balls, spinach with chickpeas, croquettes, (aw, everything is good). Good selection of wines and I'd recommend the rose... More

Rather tucked away and low-key, but this is actually one of Oxford's best restaurants. The food is always fresh and tasty, and served with a great range of authentic Spanish wines, beers, sherries and soft drinks. The Sangria is lovely and way too easy to drink! The staff are friendly and happy to recommend the best mix of dishes/numbers of... More

Visited here on Sunday evening. It was very small and cosy when we entered. We hadn't booked but It wasn't particularly busy. We got shown to a table and the staff were very polite and attentive. We took our time ordering a couple of dishes at a time. All the food was very tasty and I shall return!
