“Excellent Tapas”
Reviewed November 29, 2012

This is an old favourite of mine.

Been going there for about two years. The food and service are good.

Spanish staff and a good welcome. Can be hard to get a table.

My only reservation is that I do not find it as good value as I used to.

“Lovely food and even better Rioja”
Reviewed November 24, 2012 via mobile

I've been here a few times. It's quite traditional and the staff are Spanish. The food is nice and is served quickly. The staff are really friendly and like to talk. The house Rioja is really nice and a good price at £17. I'd definitely recommend it and will be going again.

“WONDERFUL RESTAURANT”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

Food was great, we had a lovely fried chicken in garlic sauce and all the dishes we tried were authentic Spanish
Staff was also friendly, quick and efficient. The atmosphere really transports you to Andalusia.
On top of that we found the bill very good value.
WONDERFUL place to enjoy a lovely evening.

“good but not excellent”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

the food is ok, but maybe too expensive for the quality. I ve been here several times because I live in the area, so I have tried almost all the tapas.

“Great service”
Reviewed September 16, 2012 via mobile

Excellent, polite, quick and,ahem, good looking waiters! Food lovely if a bit on the pricey side. Make one of your dishes the meat stuffed peppers. The paella is seafood, which the menu doesn't make immediately clear. Would return.
