We went here on a sunny Saturday afternoon. We went to sit outside, but the pavements were sloping and people could walk straight past you, which was a bit offputting, so we went indoors instead! We went here once before in the autumn and loved it, so decided to return.
The guy who was either the owner or manager (I think I heard him being called Antonio by a colleague) never stopped! He was either taking food to tables, filling up the fridge or talking to customers to check everything was OK. A really friendly guy!
The food is expensive for what it is, but it's soooo nice! We had a dish of mini chorizos and Spanish black pudding style sausage (morcilla, I think) which they poured sherry onto and set alight at the table, chickpea & spinach stew, which was lovely, fried potatoes with a selection of 3 dips - aioli, bravas sauce (which thankfully wasn't very hot at all) and a blue cheese style sauce which was amazing, and these wonderful ham and cheese croquettes, which we had on our previous visit. All of this was washed down with a jug of sangria. The whole thing came to £30 excluding service. We gave a good tip because the waiter didn't stop the whole time we were in there! The menu isn't as big as other Spanish tapas places in Brighton, but a smaller menu is often the sign of a good quality restaurant.
It's a small restaurant with an intimate feel. It's not fast food, and it took a while for the dishes to arrive, but at least you know they're cooked to order. My only criticism would be that one of the croquettes was cold on one edge, where it had presumably been frozen and not heated totally all the way through.
However, the overall quality of the food, the friendly welcome and the authentic food all make this a place to recommend.
