Came with friends. booked table for 4 on a saturday night. our table wasnt ready, so had to stand at the top of the stairs next t0 the toilets for 20 minutes waiting......as there is no where to sit and have a drink and wait for your table perhaps the restaurants should give tables longer before booking another table in....

Me and my wife visited for a meal last night and found it a bit of a mixed bag, we had the all you can eat deal , the only down fall is the chef chooses what dishes you get , we found that we had the same dishes served to us twice on more than one occasion. The food... More

We had a lovely meal last night the set tapas menu were food is brought out until your full. This was good and a chance to try things we might not ordinarily choose. This was a bargain but the alcoholic drinks were very expensive - £17.95 for a jug of sangria and £9 odd for 2 pints which I thought... More

We come here all the time now. Incredible food, good portions, great service. My highlights so far include the fennel, mushrooms in garlic, Mix vegatable in chéese, potatos peppers in alioli . Oh, I'm vegan! But my fish and meat eating friends also love it - they say have the squid! Go there.... I promise you won't be disappointed.

Went for the first time last night. The food was absolutely incredible. We had 5 tapas dishes and each one was perfect. The paella tapas dish was one of the best paella i've ever had - cooked to perfection and melt in the mouth! Service was spot on, very polite and friendly and they were accommodating for us when they... More

We recently enjoyed an evening of typically Spanish food apart from the paella which was much too spicy and an unusual colour - very dark - we've not been served one similar during our long stays in Spain although we have mostly been in the Cartagena and Javea areas so perhaps it's a style that we're not used to The...

Having lived for several years in Spain, we fancied sampling some Spanish cuisine for a change, and not wanting a full meal, thought this restaurant would hit the spot! Initial impression from the outside was good, very pretty and well lit- thumbs up! We had luckily phoned and reserved a table, as the restaurant was full. The inside is very... More
