Anticipation was high, as I was yearning for a Spanish / tapas dinner for a few days. When called for reservation on a Saturday evening and was told that by 7:30 there'll be plenty of space I did get a bit suspicious. However, decided to give it a try.
The entrance is on the main road (not hidden), but is pretty ordinary. The premises are in a very narrow and deep building (Dutch style). We were lead to the upper floor and shown to a table for four, that being the number of our party. We are fairly tall, and the seating was extremely cramped. Looking around I realized that the two facing benches and the table between them that we were given were part of a long and elaborate one-piece welded metal frame running the length of the building wall, so there was no way to move or adjust our seating in any way. Fortunately, 2 or 3 members of staff showed interest in our strife, and offered a number of solutions which led us to another more classic table, and our situation has immediately improved from "medieval torture" to just "small". The lighting and ambience were dim but fitting the mood. All through the staff were very supportive.
Having gotten the seating sorted, we got to ordering. Menu is not excessive, but rich and offers good variety, as is the drink list. We got a sampling plate of cheeses (with grapes and chutney, and another for the meats - both were excuiste. Then came the flow of food plates, all of which were very tasty, although the two chorizo dishes are worthy of a special comm
Asked for sangria, but had to go for the white version (no red available), which turned out to be a very good choice. Realizing that Port is a bit of a house specialty, ordered a degustation selection consisting of 3 50ml glasses with a different drink in each. Again, a very pleasant choice. A friendly waiter took the order and knowledgeably advised on details. The food was very tasty across the board, and when it came in contact with port, there was an explosion of very pleasant flavor. It was so nice that we asked for more of the same dishes, as portions weren't miniscule, but not large either.
The whole meal for 4 including drinks cost around £110. Hope to definitely come again! !
