Ate here last night from the early bird menu. Great value and good options. Both me and my fiancé had the paella and it was delicious with a good mix of seafood. The staff were attentive and the atmosphere was great with a real buzz about the place. Will definitely be returning!

There was a bug in my food and they made me feel like it was my fault and asked me why it was in there. Seriously... they then brought out a replacement steak and I couldn't even eat it because I was sickened by the bug that was grilled into my steak almost having eaten it. Night was ruined especially... More

Been here loads of times and every time I go it seems to get better and better. Wonderful atmosphere, absolutely gorgeous food, (the seafood paella is amazing), with a great selection to suit all tastes. Also has a very good choice of wine and drinks and the service has always been excellent even at the busiest times. Couldn't recommend enough!

When a friend suggested meeting for dinner here i was hesitant as I know she's a fan of tapas, but I'm usually not. However, I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived and saw the menu as they really do cater for everyone. I ordered from the early bird menu (deep fried Brie followed by the lamb shank) which was exceptional... More
