We came here this week for my Birthday Dinner. It was our first time in a Tapas bar, so didn't know what to expect.

Staff were very nice and great at their jobs which wasn't easy as place was packed! Food is really tasty,maybe a little expensive for tapas but nice all the same,price of alcohol is another thing,...

First experience of tapas and it couldn't have been a friendlier place to take it. Our waiter, Tom, was so accommodating, helpful and brilliant....couldn't do enough. Food variety, veggie options, quality, quantity and atmosphere ensured a great experience. Definitely a 'go to' tapas bar.

Ate here last week with some friends. I have been here several times-the last time was not great either. The staff were nice but the food was not great. My fish was dry and the olives in my salad were not fresh. I am disappointed because my early experiences here were positive so I'm not sure what has happened but... More

We had wine/beer and tapas. The food was good, but it felt a little presumptuous to call it tapas. Good service.
