A small and intimate place with three long wooden tables. The inexpensive tapas gets served on a large round wooden board. The presentation is beautiful, with quick and friendly service. Thank goodness for no music and proper lighting on our food, a rarity in most...More

What a great discovery - we ate here 3 times during a weeks break in the Cape. The tapas for 2 at R280 must be the bargain of the century. You get 8 different VERY tasty dishes which alter daily. It is casual and intimate...More

This is where superb food lives! Chef Liam Tomlin has created amazing tapas- a great mix of flavours & I'm in love with the pate! Get there early for lunch or dinner as it fills up fast & you can't book.
