Tried to book for 8:30, but as with the sister tapas directly across the road, it was a case of "come along and if we can't fit you in then we have a more cafe-style place next door, we'll get you in there". When we arrived, we were pleasantly surprised that there was a table for us. Looking at other reviews, perhaps it had been booked by one of the people who were a few minutes late! Having been warmly greeted and given menus, we then sat for just over 30 minutes and were paid no attention whatsover - and we tried really hard to get someone's attention! Then, just as we were about to leave (past 9 o'clock, time to get something to eat somewhere) along came Eric, and the service for the rest of the evening was exemplary.
Outstanding tapas, everything having a little "twist" to make it different, and all extremely freshly cooked. We had 6 or 7 small dishes between us, which was plenty. I can't praise the food too much - excellent. There's the most amazing wine list which makes you understand why this place is almost next door to HR Owen's Ferrari dealership - similar prices, with many bottles on offer for between £500 and £1750. We had a humble £25 bottle, about the cheapest on offer, which was fine. All the above came to £78 which, considering the location, we thought very good value. Do watch out for the bread basket though - refuse it if you don't order it. We failed to turn it away and spotted £1.50 on the bill for what we thought had been complimentary.
