So the coffee is great, glad about that as it's enroute to work. But the macaroni cheese is DELICIOUS and I am in danger of becoming an addict. Tapas menu is always appealing as it means you can try more than one dish. Always buzzing and friendly service to boot.

Went here with my work colleagues for a Christmas meal. Food was very nice and service and atmosphere to match.

I particularly enjoyed the cheese - served properly at room temperature - so many places miss this.

If I was being picky the prosecco was clearly budget and tasted the same!

All in all I would definately go back again if the opportunity arose.

We went to Same-Same but different for the 7 course tapas New Year's Eve special.

Sometimes the food can be forgotten about for special occasions but not at Same-Same but different. All 7 courses fantastic, good service and atmosphere.

This was our second visit and we'll definitely be back!

We ordered 5 plates of tapas between us and 2 glasses of rioja and everything was delicious! The staff were lovely, really attentive and made us feel very welcome in this small, hidden treasure.

Love this little place. Third visit in a year. Great service, great wine, very tasty food. Only one gripe this time round, the menu has changed and not for the better. Not only was there no meatballs tapas dish, there was also no calamari dish! Surely these are two staples you expect to find in any tapas restaurant? We asked about their absence to be told that they had been replaced on the menu by new dishes. One of these was cottage pie (or was it shepherd's pie?) in the small tapas plate. It was very tasty but lacked the authentic Spanish feel of the two dropped favourites.
Keep on doing what you do best but have a rethink on the menu.
