“Best Tapas outside of Spain”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012

This is an amazing tapas restaurant. Really authentic, interesting and above all tasty dishes made from the freshest ingredients. There are always additional specials as well. We have been here several times and it has always been really enjoyable. Great atmosphere and extra friendly service. Top notch!

“Fantastic Tapas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

You have to book if you want a table usually. We have been coming to this hidden gem for a couple of years. The Paella is better than the ones we have eaten in Spain! The Tapas is always good. All for around £20 per person, why go into central London and spend double?

“First time tapas. Will try it again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

Friendly greeting. Good explanation of menu (including the specials) Food excellent.
Had the langoustine at the start. Bread dipped into the olive oil which was already on the table (in a bottle). Where they get that olive oil from I cant imagine but I would have spent all evening just smelling and drinking it. Then I had lamb cutlets - done to perfection. House red very acceptable. Pleasant experience all round in an area of London which was like Greenwich Village, New York.

“Food always Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

I just wanted to write a quick review of this fabulous little Tapas gem in Walthamstow after noticing a couple of bad reviews - I am stunned that anyone could possibly have a bad night here. We were lucky enough to have this fantastic restaurant practically on our door step and visited with family and friends on at least 10 separate occasions. The food was always fresh and fantastically prepared. The owner and staff were always incredibly professional and attentive, I could not find fault with anything (and I am incredibly fussy)!

One downside is that we no longer live in London, what I would give for an Orford Saloon:2 in the village we live in now!! So, if you ever feel like opening up a restaurant in the North West around the corner from our house that would be fantastic!!

“Esta mucho bien”

Fantastico!!
We visited without reservation and had a late table. Food was authentic the best I have had in UK. Reasonably priced, and we all cannot wait to go back.
