Just arrived back from dinner atTale of Two to celebrate a friends birthday my shirt is still stuck to me, it was like eating in a sauna. There were six of us and we had booked a table in the window looking out to sea, I immediately asked the waitress if she could open a window as it was very... More

I've never had tapas and my father in law convinced me and my wife to join him. The place was very clean and tidy, staff were friendly and food was served perfect. Will return

Fantastic tapas, highly recommended. A must try. Good range of food great choices, reasonably priced. You need to eat in a booth otherwise it can be a bit noisy.

Bar staff friendly, helpful and efficient. Drinks are overpriced for the nose in the air think they're something regulars. Could be a warm inviting place if the management could sift through some of the clientele.

Excellent food - we had steak and sea bass both well cooked and presented and plentiful. Service efficient and friendly and good atmosphere upstairs in restaurant and downstairs in bar for pre drinks,.

We went here for tapas, and were not disappointed. The menu is varied, with plenty of choice. The dishes are fresh and tasty, service is very good, and a great selection of drinks. Highly recommended.

Great bar. Good clientele, excellent array of cocktails and friendly staff. W had tapas downstairs which were all delicious. We did look upstairs which looked lovely - very airy and light. I would definately reccommend for drinks and food.

Such a shame, the food is poor quality. I don't mind paying twice as much if the food is good. But to take £23 for poor quality and small quantity is just unfair. I would warn anyone ordering to be aware that 6 dishes at £23 is not enough for two people as a main meal of the day. Why... More

Upstairs the Tapas restaurant (that had a Spanish style) is double the size, but with carpet and flock wall paper! the menu has changed, and... More

The riverside has always been one if our favourite places to go for tapas. I am particularly fussy about my tapas and always found it difficult to fault them. However the riverside has now changed to twice the size and been renamed Tale of Two. When we arrived our first impression was that it appeared bare and lacked atmosphere. We... More
