Stumbled across this restaurant on our first night -we were not disappointed. If you are looking for authentic Spanish food among all the tourist places this is the place to go. Great food and wine would highly recommend.

My wife and I ate one evening, and enjoyed it so much we went back a second time. First visit we opted for Tapas. This was bit awkward as none of the dishes were labelled, and having to ask what each dish is was difficult as our Spanish is virtually nil, and the waitresses English was marginally better.. However we... More

We visited here a couple of years ago and said we couldn't wait to go back. Sadly it just isn't the same. I think the gentleman who served us last time had retired, and the attention to detail has vanished. We ordered 6 different tapas dishes, the tortilla was tepid and oily. The meatballs were lovely and I would recommend... More

We have eaten in this restaurant three years consecutively and it gets better and better. Everything about it is perfect; atmosphere, tables inside and outside, friendly staff and of course superb food - consistently. We tried a lot of different dishes during two very recent visits and couldn't fault anything. A great restaurant; not to be missed.

We went went here for lunch one day whilst on holiday as it was close to our hotel. The problem may have been the language barrier however we were really disappointed with the whole experience. The staff were not friendly or welcoming. They do have facilities for kids such as high chairs, kids menus and colouring. However they served raw... More

We were wandering around looking for somewhere to have some tapas for our dinner when we came across this little gem. We were the only non locals in there at first but the staff were all very friendly and spoke good English as well as English menus. We ordered 6 plates of tapas between two with a gigantic bowl of...
