We visited this place twice in three days as we liked it so much. The tapas is excellent and there are a couple of deals on offer also. To be certain it is advisable to book either in person or by phone and your call is acknowledged if you leave your number.

We visited here during our stay in Ilfracombe yesterday. Its the first time we have tried tapas, and the food was out of this world! The service was excellent and the recommendations were spot on! The pork scewers were delicious. Would highly recommend visiting this place. Its set the bench mark for future tapas experience's.

Offering a wide variety of tapas, this cosy and welcoming restaurant offers an "all-you-can-eat" option of the Spanish delis, which makes it also reasonably affordable. Food quality is very high, bringing the best Spain can offer, with a wide choice of beverages, wines in particular. Service was quick and staff polite and welcoming, even if we arrived near closing time.... More
