“Great cocktails”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

Have only eaten here once but have been in for Mojitos many times. All the cocktails I have tried here are good and the Tapas food is nice. My only problem with this place is tapas is very different to going for a meal and the concept to treat tapas as a proper meal for me doesn’t work. Saying that going for drinks and a bit of tapas in the bar area makes for a great start to the night.

“A great night!”
Reviewed January 28, 2013 via mobile

This place never dissapoints, food is always of a good standard, well presented and well proportioned. My girlfriend loves the cocktails although they can take a while as they are freshly prepared. The jugs of sangria are a nice touch when out with friends. Hope you enjoy.

“There are better places locally.”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

The tapas are average (Byzantium in Kings Heath are better), the cocktails are delicious, and the atmosphere is good. However I had a bad stomach following a trip here and I'm sure it was the prawns so I would not it here again (hence why I rated it "poor.")

I would recommend a cheeky cocktail here before dinner or a night out although the bar area is tiny and it can take quite a while to be served. I would make your dinner reservation else where though!

“Fresh Tapas”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

Dined here last week as part of a works party. Food fresh and hot. Delicious and plentiful with each course presented well and served with a smile. Don t usually bother with tapas restaurants but this one was well worth a visit.
