10/10 food tasted amazing. Been twice now once with family then with boyfriend. Even the things I wouldn't normally put to my mouth were absolutely superb! Staff are so warming and nice. Best tapas I've been to in a long time😁

Bit of a rip off for what you get and drink prices are ridiculous. There is far better places to eat in the ferry

4 of us visited recently. 2 need gluten-free food. This can be a problem, but not here. Friendly, attentive and helpful staff provided excellent choices,catering for all our requirements. All of the food was delicious and, as expected very plentiful. Up a fairly steep flight of stairs but 2 of us with mobility problems coped well.

Thank mary m
