We enjoyed a variety of tapas dishes. All were nice enough...but portions are not large enough for £11 for each item. Struggled to get enough for 3 out of the amount in the dish. Great meatballs and tortilla...but again...too small in portion size fod the full ration.
The special rice wasn't special and was too salty. Nice wine and service. I would go back but the music was way too loud and we were shouting to each other.

Wow the food here is amazing, went for an evening sitting. The chorizo in red wine and honey is mind blowingly great. We ordered 6 dishes between 2 people and the dishes arrived perfectly spaced apart so we could enjoy everything hot. The Padron peppers were awesome in fact everything was super tasty, hot and good portion sizes. Honestly better than the many tapas we have had in Spain as we are regular visitors to there. Puts many Spanish restaurants in Spain to shame. So glad we have somewhere in Dundee to go to. Will definitely go back soon! Great service and felt as if we were on holiday brilliant well done and thanks!!!

We went for a lunch mid-week ,chose quite a few dishes to taste, having lived in Spain.we wondered how good it would be! We were so pleased - the dishes we liked the most were chorizo with honey and red wine, and patatas bravas, all the others were great, the service was excellent. Good value for money.

First time here. Food was great, good portion size and variety. Staff were lovely and friendly giving advice on food and drinks and made a special effort for the vegan member of the family. Restaurant was a bit quiet as it was a mid week night but still had cosy atmosphere. We will definitely be back!
