Called in for drinks on a girls night out, free delicious tapas with every drink, lovely staff very helpful, lovely atmosphere. Gin seemed to be the speciality which my friend took full advantage of. A very classy bar.

A new edition to Grey Street, this is a well appointed Spanish/Mediterranean bar/restaurant with a relaxed atmosphere and attentive staff. A good selection of beers/wine & with each purchase of a drink you're served with an appetising tapas style nibble. We decided to have some food from the evening menu which was well presented & very tasty, the pork fillet was delicious & very well cooked, my partner had a stunning chicken dish.

A welcome establishment to the Newcastle scene.

What a fantastic addition to Grey Street and Newcastle. Great atmosphere and the quality of the decor is superb. We Sat at the bar and enjoyed the draught San Miguel and some really nice Pinot Grigio. Starters of squid and moules marinier were amazing, excellent flavours and very well presented. For mains, the lamb casserole with couscous was tasty, tender and cooked really well. The fillet of beef was superb too, perfectly medium with piping hot veg and nice chips to compliment. A really great night in a bar which deserves to do well. We can't wait to go back and sample the rest of the menu........and one or two of the huge array of gins on offer!!!!

Dropped in here last night and just loved the experience. Great to sit at the bar and to be treated to free tapas/appetisers. Defintely one to go to to chat and consume some very excellent gins.
