Had a wonderful meal here on a dismal Monday night. Great Tapas escpecially recommend the squid, the scotch egg on the specials menu and the chorizo potatoes although everything we ate was very fresh and cooked to order. The restaurant/bar is nicely decorated and with tables outside it must be really nice on a warm sunny day. Will definitely visit... More

I come here quite a lot, whether it is just for a few lunch time drinks, weekend drinks or for dinner and it has never dissappointed. The atmosphere & building is lovely. The food is incredible (tapas) and we have always been delighted with it. They quite often have live bands playing in the evenings over the weekend and they... More

Came here for lunch after being recommended and was not disappointed, the tapas menu had a good range to choose from! From fish/ meat dishes to vegetarian, all of the dishes we tried were delicious and good size portions for sharing! Only fault is there was no children's menus and not much choice for children from tapas menu, but no... More

The tapas and atmosphere is always great. I went to a private party where we had the side restaurant exclusively for us, the buffet was delicious, staff are always friendly and professional even when it's busy as it was last night. Great, thank you.

Popped in here for brunch on a visit to Barnstaple. It is a lovely wee place on the front. Had some lovely outdoor seating although just a bit too chilly at the moment. Would be great in summer! Nice, friendly staff. We had the Spanish eggs and they were absolutely delicious. It almost reminded me of being back in Madrid.... More
