“Great little gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

Lovely little restaurant, we've eaten here a number of times and have always enjoyed it. The food is delicious and portions are generous, I'd say that the quality of the food was better than Carmen on the high street. Service is friendly and relaxed. Easy place to walk past as it's tucked away, but give it a try!

“Best recommendation I've had this year”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2013

A friend recommended this restaurant for a party I was planning, and I was so pleased that I took their advice. From the first phone call I made to arrange our party of 19 people, to setting the tab at the end of the night, the staff couldn't have possibly be more helpful and made the night very special for us.

One of the members of our party had gluton allergies and as we went with the set menu (at a brilliant price of £13.50 per head) he arranged to cook with corn flour where possible so she wasn't sitting there with only a small selection that she could enjoy.

The food was nothing short of amazing and we could barely get through it all. Sangria was spot on and everyone had such a great time, all of them ensuring that we will be back there again.

If you find yourself in Clapham, I highly recommend getting on the high street and enjoy this gem of a restaurant.

“nice tapas”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

Have been to this place a few times now, we went here with visiting friends from scotland. The prices are reasonable and the food is also authentic and good.

Waiting staff are friendly and know the menu well which is a rare thing these days.

We ordered several tapas to share for the whole table and each of the dishes were delicious.

Will most certainly keep coming here. It is great for a quick tasty relaxed meal with friends.

“Great tapas in clapham...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013

We have been going to this place for years and have enjoyed on every visit. Its an authentic tapas bar, a rare find in SW4. Most of the restaurants along the high street are chains, but this is a family owned and run business and it shows. The service is spot on - friendly and efficient. The range of tapas is extensive and the choice of wines, beers and cocktails is good. We love it here and can't wait to go back (yet again!). Btw Saturday nights are the busiest, so its always best to book!

“Authentic Spanish tapas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013 via mobile

We were recommended here by some friends who knew we had lived in Spain. Finding authentic Spanish food in London is not too difficult, however these guys have also managed to authenticate a typical tapas bar. Great food, great service will definately be back......SOON!
