Ate here as the vegetarian tapas sounded promising. It was horrible. White bread rolls spread with hummus or cream cheese and a sprinkle of onions. The worst was the Iberian steak which turned out to be what seemed to be a slice of processed ham and some fast food cheese on a white bagel. Really yuck. The cocktail was sickeningly... More

Grateful for the vegetarian tapas. They let you choose what you want too. It's a welcome change of pace.

My fiancé and I didn't finish our first round of drinks. Her glass of rose tasted stale and my vermouth cocktail tasted like sprite without any hint of vermouth (I'd been drinking fantastic vermouth drinks for days). We didn't even stay to try the tapas, just left money on the table and walked out. With so many other excellent tapas... More

Loved the place and the food. Their eggplant and cerdo was out of this world. The owners were Italian if I remember correctly. I was there for Xmas of 2014, and they treated me like family. In fact, I ate three meals there. I had a beef dish and a seafood dish also. Very friendly and great hosts.

Very friendly service, nice beers, cocktails and food. The ambience is vibrant and young, but the staff are extremely friendly and helpful, drinks are served in chilled glasses and there is a tapa menu to choose from. It is not as busy as some of the bars and doesn't have the frenetic energy of the traditional tapas bars but it... More

Visited here for the 1drink = 1free tapa. They only had 2 veg options when I was there (they were out of many things) the salad was browned and warm. Overall bad food. Only trying 3 we left. The bar itself has a nice feel and the server was super nice but I would head somewhere else.

We first went into this tapas bar after a waitress in the street suggested we try it. The service was fast and friendly. There was a lot of choice in tapas menu, so over two nights we sampled quite a few. My favourite tapa was the cheese with sweet onion. The beer and tapa for 2 euros here was delicious... More

We were looking for this bar for quite some time before a waiter approached us and invited in to his bar, which turned out to be the one we had been looking for. There are few seats indoors or out, but the service was prompt and the free tapas was very good. This well priced bar is ideal for a... More
