Lovely spot for a dinner date Good food and really nice atmosphere inside too. More authentic than other tapas bars and service was really prompt considering the volume of customers!

Visited here on a short 2 day visit to Bowness. Quick and efficient on a Sunday evening. We chose 7 dishes all of which were tasty. Would definitely recommend on the basis of this visit. Ribs and Prawns were especially noteworthy.

Great atmosphere, with a good selection of Tapas, beer and wine. Service a little slow though. Desserts good too.

Food is brilliant, lots of choice. We ordered 7 dishes to share between 2 of us and they were all delicious topped of with a dessert. Staff were friendly and helpful and the atmosphere is lovely. Would definitely visit again if going to Windermere

We visited on a Sunday evening, the restaurant doesn't open until 6pm and seemed to get full quickly. Food was delicious and reasonably priced. Mixed service, one very friendly and attentive waitress, one very rude and unhelpful. Would probably return.
