We stopped here for some lunch one day and found the gentleman behind the bar to be very miserable not even attempting to make conversation though there was only one other couple in the cafe. Don't expect much but even a good afternoon would have been nice . This may have been a one off and the tapas was good. Would give it another try when next in keswick to give them the benefit of the doubt

This place is a total gem. Nice cosy interior, varied and unusual choice of drinks including lots of soft/hot options for non-drinkers at all times of day. Friendly staff, prompt service, board games to play, and lots of nice unusual snacky things (tiny pastries, nibbles, cheeses) as well as the main menu. It's very European and I wish there were more places like this in the north-east where we live!

A small cafe bar, friendly staff and alcohol is an option. The tapas was far better than the specialist chains. Quality portions and great value.

One of the most comfortable settings to enjoy a delicious pizza based on those from Naples in Italy. My favourite thing was the selection of board games to play which would keep a variety of people entertained. They offered a wide selection of foreign beers too! We will definitely pay them a visit again!

Lovely cafe just up from the market square, not superfast service because they make everything fresh and the quality shows. We had the 4 tapas for £13.95 and got a an absolute bargain, tasty and authentic and a very pleasing glass of rioja to wash it all down.

If you want instant pizza, or tapas, this is not the place for you. Quality service and food.
