Stopped here for lunch. Friendly bar upstairs with a dining room and open kitchen downstairs. Excellent new Basque food dishes. The Basque Trout dish is perfect as an appetizer.

The food and service were absolutely fantastic. The staff were warm and friendly and very attentive. The food was an explosion of flavours and like art to the eye. All round it was a great experience. Will definitely go back. Highly recommended.

Having researched the up and coming chefs of the region, I chose Xarma as a good option. I was disappointed by the execution of each item and can not recommend this restaurant for this price range. I hope they can improve their e execution.

Waitress was friendly, downstairs looks lovely. That was it as far as good things to say about this place. Really poor food. Immature 'chefs' with no idea about flavour, portion size of how to behave in a restaurant which tries to portray itself as fine...More
