Great food good price

Dined here at the weekend. The service was good. The food was great, very tasty. Each tapas cost €4 which is very good value. Word of caution beware of stairs to toilets, it is very dangerous !!!

Good food, great service. Very pleasant ambience. Reasonably authentic tapas, but a good number of small plates with a more pan European feel. Staff were happy to give individual receipts to a group of 14, did it with a smile then gave us all a shot of limacello.

Everything was satisfying but nothing stood out as exceptional. 3 or 4 tapas are enough to fill you. Service is hectic, tables are crowded together the noise level is high and the prices are quite reasonable.

Some points to highlight: - Very nice service (except for the guy in charge, who could not handle the amount of clients) - Dark area, which could feel nicer if better decorated - Medium to low quality/taste of food - There was a queue to get in, which was not organized properly - The whole place was a bit messy...

Went walking for a restaurant and found this Tapas place. Great welcoming and helpful staff. Not busy when we arrived but boy after about half an hour the place was full with people waiting. Food arrived fairly quickly and was fantastic. Great flavours at a reasonable price. Would recommend it to anyone wanting something a little different. Great staff. Thank... More

The food was great and great value (€4 for each plate) but the service was pretty slow due to how relentless busy it was.

Tapas was so fresh. €4 for a dish. Perfect if you wants lots of different flavours. The prawns was one of the best I ve had. Music was a bit loud. Came with a table of 3 we did really enjoy the food.

the food and staff were average. But there were too loud music and too light atmosphere inside the dining area!

All tapas are 4€, which is fair in average, some should have been cheaper, but some could have been a bit more expensive. The taste was really nice, the food hot and fresh, and the atmosphere authentic. The tapas is served in little bowls in the middle of the table for all of us to share, which we liked, but... More

Nice place with nice atmosphere; despite there are many people and you can not book, service is efficient and you get a seat quite quickly. Tapas are very nice: try the one with chicons, queso manchego and jamon serrano !! Deliciuous!! Price is reasonable. Sweet (Dessert) tapas are a bit disappointing ....
