We arrived at 9h50 and chair were on the counter and dark. So it does not close at 11pm. Certainly not in Feb or slow season.

Great little neighbourhood restaurant. Food is always fresh and tasty, wines are well picked. Atmosphere is lively but not raucous. Good choice for couples or small groups.

Wasn’t disappointed with this place that puts a slight twist to traditional “tapas bars”

Menu is concise but everything was very tasty and beautifully cooked. We had the croquetas (which very tapas bar is judged on), foie gras and tempura prawns to begin and then duck, octopus and the amazing tortilla. The oozing middle is something to behold!

Worth the slight detour away from the main road to experience great food at a reasonable price for London

As my companion exclaimed “best tapas ever”

It is a very nice small restaurant. The food - all those tapas from Basque country - is very tasty. We particularly liked the hams, the pork cheek and the baby octupus. The wine list is interesting and includes several Basque wines. The desserts are very good, too. The service is friendly and knowledgeable.
