Being someone who appreciates Spanish cuisine, I visited this establishment last summer and I was impressed. They brought out course after course of meat and seafood dishes and gave my girlfriend an alternative choice to the fish dishes. The staff were friendly and even conversed with myself in Spanish. Also a wide range of alcoholic drinks from Spain were available.... More

Birthday Sunday Lunch with seven in the party (one vegetarian). Very good authentic tapas, with attentive and knowledgeable staff. Excellent sherry to start and free appetisers. Our vegetarian was well looked after too. Only complaint is that the dining room is rather dark, with 2 small windows it feels a bit claustrophobic.

Although it is really difficult to get a booking in this small restaurant it is worth the trouble. there is plenty of choice so that if you don't like something- say fish- you can ask them to bring you an alternative. the atmosphere was homely Spanish, the staff were friendly and the food was excellent.

Went for a midweek late lunch, and were given the last table in the restaurant! Needless to say, if you plan on going for dinner on a Friday night, book ahead. There are no menus, but that's part of the fun. The staff are exceptionally helpful and initially ask if you have any food restrictions or dislikes and then cook... More

Have eaten here before and quite enjoyed it (although not half as good as Café Andaluz in Edinburgh!). We were seated upstairs which is very small and can get quite hot, however it was fine. We decided to go back and were informed our table would be downstairs this time, in the bar. My husband enquired whether we'd be in... More

I was stuck in Dundee for a few hours with a hungry belly and checked good ol trip advisor for somewhere decent to eat. It just so happened that the closest place to eat was the T.A top restaurant, result! It's in a nice wee part of Dundee on the riverside. The restaurant itself is very authentic Spanish style decoration.... More

I had visited summer last year with work colleagues for a late dinner seating and thoroughly enjoyed the food, service and atmosphere so give the 5 stars for both visits combined. Lunch on a Wednesday at the end of January offered a different atmosphere naturally but still excellent service and fantastic, tasty food. It was my wife's first visit and... More
