I went here again whist my Wife was on 'tour de Grafton St'. I sat and had a couple pints of Black until she managed to find me under all the bags she had. The menu has changed a little with some of the early bird items restricted, but not at all bad. Again the tapas type food was great,... More

Had lunch here on a Thursday and was very pleasantly surprised. Not at all busy but people coming and going throughout. The tapas menu is not extensive by any means but the food was of a very high standard. We shared a platter of cold meats and cheeses followed by a delicious fish stew. Disappointed not more Spanish wines by... More

We went in this restaurant (Market Bar) after shopping and did ask for an early bird menu. There was a great choice of tapas with this menu! The food was excellent! The music was only a littlebit to hard to talk with each other. After we did say something about that, they did put the down the sound. Good service... More

The small tapas are massive definitely does 2 or 3 people depending on how hungry you are. The cocktails are really tasty. Staff always quick... More

It's hard to find Spanish food outside of Spain which is equally as good. This place surpassed anything I have had in Spain so far! Everything we ordered was very delicious! I recommend getting larger plates and sharing it for a much better deal (especially with the gambas pil-pil). It was very very busy on a Thursday night, it was... More
