So, just to explain why it's 4 stars for me.....

It's not an expensive, michelin starred West End glitzy restaurant.
It's not a themed tourist trap despite it's location.
It doesn't pretend to be anything but a small family run (?) basic restaurant with a fairly limited menu.

What it is however, is a comfortable, friendly and informal place to have some good food at a lower price than most places within the locality. It's actually exactly what it says it is which is why I've given it a high rating.

I agree with one of the previous reviewers that tapas is an expensive way to eat. In Spain, it's cheap (or free!) - in the UK we've talked it up into small snacks at a cost that's more like a starter. That said, the portions here are generous, and the food is freshly cooked. Plenty of garlic as well......

There are larger dishes available and from what we could see, these looked good value. Also a deal on a two course set menu which looked good.

Wine is a bit overpriced but there was a good house Rioja which you probably wouldn't find in a pub.

Very simple layout tables and chairs in a small area, but really clean and the service was friendly.

It ticked all the boxes for us as a pre-theatre light lunch and a glass of wine. Would definitely come back and see what it's like in the evening.

If you're in the centre of London's West End and are looking for good value for money and decent Spanish tapas then definitely go for a visit.

5 of us meet every Monday to go to see a film. We love this restaurant and go at least once a month. Reasonably priced tapas - cooked well, especially the mushrooms, calamari and chicken. Great salads, puddings and wine.
We find the staff friendly and easy going.
For the center of London, it cannot be beaten.

You get what you pay for. The food is not exceptional. The staff was unfriendly - we never saw a single smile on any of their face's. I noticed them looking in our direction and talking a few times which made me rather uncomfortable. I couldn't wait to finish my food and get out of there.

Although the standard of food is no more than average, the value for money is excellent. Perfect place for a pre-theatre meal. The set menu at £9.95 was cheaper than two drinks in the theatre!
