Amazing experience, we have loved to try a bit of everything. Highly recommended the crab, the liver, the pork belly and potatoes and chorizo Price honest enough

We visited for lunch on a lovely sunny afternoon and luckily got seated outside which was lovely. We had tapas for lunch and a couple of drinks. Portions were very small and expensive. Food was ok. We left hungry which was not good for an...€80 + lunch :(More

Friendly staff and nice food (pity portions are so small). But the really foul language from the 3 'mature' adults at the table across from us was really awful. One customer got up and left, this group were continuously served aclcol even though they were...loud and obnoxious and discussed their dysfunctional family ( their words)for everyone to hear. Too embarrassed to say anything, even one young waitress was uncomfortable. This was at 5pm! Wont be back! Mr FarrellMore

I ordered the antipasto plate at 13 euro. It consisted of 3 types of Italian meat, 2 of which were very fatty, the parma ham was fine. They were accompanied by 3/4grapes, a few salad leaves and 5 cream crackers. Aside from the fact they...were stale they have no place on an Italian dish. The lack of anything other than meat was very disappointing and unlike any I have eaten in other restaurants. The waitress diid bring some warm bread when I complained about the cream crackers. On the positive side the Covid measures were very good and the staff friendly and wecoming. I would suggest looking on the internet/receipe book for what constitutes an antipasto plate.More

We ate there plenty of times and when we went back after lockdown I noticed portion size has reduced... not a great idea to get people back..Would have needed another 3 tapas to fill us up but wouldn’t pay for them. Taking advantage..... won’t be...back any time soon.More

Opted for 3 tapas to share. Had ham and brie crostíní. Ribs and tomato bruscetta. Delicious 3 soft drinks. Was going to have coffees but waitress said they had no milk. Why they couldn't go next door to blue bar and borrow milk I don't...know. Aside from that lovely visit.More

This is a lovely restaurant and the staff are very friendly. However, we were 3 adults and 3 children and all thought this was very expensive, small portions. The desserts were without icecream, so I think very pared back, possibly due to trying to cut...costs due to the Corna Virus. Overall, disappointed with our recent visit as we did not feel we got value for money.More

I have been many times with various different groups but I’m not sure I paid attention to the price before. We are a family of four and had two mains, a salad, three tapas, a side of fries and two cokes for €100. The food...was lovely but my salad was €20 for the tiniest salad I have ever seen! It was more like a side salad. As I normally work in the city I have eaten in many restaurants there and salads are full to the brim with components. This was a tiny few leaves, half an artichoke, about 5 pieces of red pepper, 2 slices of chilli, about 5 prawns and some dressing. I would expect to pay €10 for what I got. I left hungry. So although our food was nice (nothing amazing according to my family) I won’t be back due to over pricing. Covid measures in place were very good although the front door where you wait to be seated is a bottle neck with people also coming out.More

Hi. No I would not consider this normal practice, as a rule tap water would be provided free. That is very poor service.
