“Fantastic tapas meal”
Reviewed October 22, 2012 via mobile

We tried this restaurant with the family having found it on Tripadvisor. Unlike some respondents we found the service really friendly. The tapas meals were lovely: the highlights were the lamb, spicy prawns, pork belly, chicken thighs and tortilla, although to be honest they were all lovely. The Rioja wine was also lovely (even though I realised it wasn't the one I had ordered but a cheaper one). A fantastic find!

“Excellent food. Service brisk. Go here for food.”
Reviewed October 20, 2012 via mobile

Food was excellent and reasonably priced by average standards for London. 6 tapas dishes with two 75cl bottles of water and bread 40 pounds.

The lamb was out this world and the patatis. Highly recommend for the meat dishes. Vegetarian also very well catered for.

Handy location next to the tube at morningsidecrescent.

Decor basic. Food is why you go here. Functional.

“More veggie dishes than meat!”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

Great service and good value. Yes you can eat meat but the veggie and fish dishes were excellent so why bother!

“A bit cramped but food worth the visit”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

Tiny place, which was very busy which is a good sign. Not a lot of room for 6 ft plus people! The food however was delicious with really good portion sizes. Not fine dining but the atmosphere was great and the food fab so no complaints
