The food here is delicious and the staff can fit the tapas around your likes and dislikes. A little on the pricier side, but definitely worth it for special occasions!

Set menu is £30. They sometimes do variations on that depending on the ingredients they have in. As a larger group some of the elements were swapped out for a home made paella for example. Far better in the restaurant.

I did but it wasn’t hugely busy when we were there so you may be lucky. I think I would book though just to be safe. 😊
