We spent a lovely Saturday afternoon here. We had six small plates and brutti breads between the two of us along with some drinks. The style of eating is very relaxing and the food is really good. The staff are friendly and helpful. We will certainly be back.

Spent an afternoon with Friends and the Atmosphere was lovely and relaxing and very Mediteranean.Food was good but a tad expensive for the portions!(IMHO). Would not deter me from returning. What a great wee secret location in Glasgow.Attentive and friendly service and the music and decor really make an all round fab bar/diner.

Thank you for reviewing us! We appreciate all our feedback and are glad that you enjoyed you visit! During the week (Monday - Thursday) we have a 'Workers Lunch Menu' which is three wee courses including a drink and a tea or coffee for £9. Very reasonable and perfect for lunch time. Our website is updated daily with details of what we have on that day.

Ended up here on a very windy wet evening just before Christmas. It was relatively quiet due to poor weather. Between the 3 of us we ordered bread, 9 small plates, then a dessert each, after which i was happily full although my friends said they could have scoffed another couple more dishes! There was a good choice of food and everything arrived in good time more or less in succession. Its a nice place hidden away in the city centre, location ideal for just after work drinks. I liked the festive decor, sufficiently glittery but nothing tacky. recommend it and will be back!

Thanks a bunch for your lovely review. We were especially flattered about the "glittery but not tacky" description of our festive decorations! There's a very fine line! Hope to see you again soon.

Off the beaten track (well, sort of) they have done a great job of making this modern space look older, and authentic ( the yellow windows are highly effective at disorienting you to believe its actually sunny outside which is great); Spanish tapas menu of quality and extremely well produced dishes (the 'breads' ie mini flat bread pizza style dish are great varieties on that theme) is small and perfectly formed. Efficient and very friendly staff make the whole experience well worthmKing the effort to find it :)

Having whetted our collective appetites by reviewing the daily menu, it was with great enthusiasm that our office made a reservation for a Christmas meal on 20th December.

Lovely setting and reasonably friendly (if harrassed) staff but it somehow missed the mark in terms of coping with the havoc that is Christmas.

Whilst the starters were tasty and reasonable-sized, the main courses were delivered on tapas plates and were cold. Those that had turkey found it floating in a sea of watery gravy. So small were the main courses that the running joke throughout the meal was "Where are we going after this?" "Out for dinner".

The Creme Brulee dessert, whilst having a good caramel top, was underdone and the custard very runny.

I so wanted to like this place and, whilst it wasn't a disaster, it was disappointing. I'm willing to give it the benefit of the doubt and might consider going back when the 'normal' menu is on but will give it a good while before I think about it.
