Food and ambience

Location and contact

Spanish restaurant serving Wallington & surrounding area since 1978. Classic, artisan food served in a relaxed, welcoming atmosphere. A fabulous 2 & 3 course set menu from £18.95 with full a la carte always available. Specialising in fresh fish such a Dover Sole, the finest fillet steaks and Chateaubriands and a range of typical Spanish Paella dishes, which are created per person to order. With a good range of gluten free dishes, we hope that our menu will have something for most tastes and dietary requirements.

Love it. Little restaurant without all the forced corporate rubbish that comes with large chain restaurants. Service is quirky, but fun, and they will cater to all your requirements with a smile. Food is great, (especially the lamb) with plenty of choices, and varied choice...More

Went for dinner for the second time yesterday. The food is really good, the service attentive and the wine list great. This is a very nice family run restaurant- with a real cook and fantastic food. Very reasonable prices. Would recommend it to anyone.

Love it here. Great family restaurant providing excellent food, wine and service. A tad old fashioned perhaps - ie desserts are served from the trolley - but charming! The food speaks for itself, it is always of the best quality and perfectly cooked; and those...More

Busy for a Tuesday evening and a nice atmosphere with helpful staff. A long established restaurant with a decent Spanish menu - different from many other restaurants in Wallington and the nearby places.

Been here many times and never disappointed. Family owned traditional restaurant with high standards. And best of all the desserts are home made and irrisistable.
