“Superb,authentic,tasty food”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

First time visit and it was fantastic.We live local and thought we would give it a try.There was six of us and we were not disappointed.The food was superb.I have eaten in other tapas restaurants in Glasgow but this was far better. Food was fresh ,tasty and plentiful. The staff were welcoming and informitive about the dishes.Great value also, £9.95 for any 3 tapas plus either dessert ,coffee or tea. Will definitely be back and recommend. Keep up the good work.

“Good value local tapas.”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

We have been here twice now. First visit was on the "chef's first night off in 3 months", so we took that into consideration with the food. The 2nd visit, there could be no excuses - the chef was "in da house", but sadly, the food was still a wee bitty average, with some dishes noteably better than others.

I really don't want to slate the wee place. Its a very handy local restaurant, with friendly service. The prices are very reasonable, so you can hardly expect cordon bleu cuisine for the money paid. My recommendation would be is to stick to the fish or red meat tapas, which are what the chef seems to do best. Chicken dishes seem to be WAY overcooked and inedibly dry, but by contrast the lamb was lovely, as were, for example, the calamaris and black pudding options.

The early evening set menu of 3 tapas and a dessert for approx a tenner is great value. In that price, you will also get a basket of bread with an olive oil dip, a ramekin of olives, and to finish your meal, a complimentary shot glass of dessert wine and mint chocolate. Canny grumble about that!

Nice ambience, attentive staff, great central Cardonald location.....just don't order the chicken! :)

“Faultless”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

I have been to this beautiful restaurant a few times now with my husband and we love everything about it.

The staff are all very welcoming, friendly and would go out of their way to make sure you get the most from your visit.

We have tried different tapas dishes and can't fault any of them. The flavours are perfect and everything is cooked well.

This little restaurant is definitely worth a visit. The prices are fantastic and we always leave very happy.

Good luck to manager Jamie for his restraunt in the future. See you soon.

“Great wee place that deserves to do well”
Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

We went here today for lunch as we were going to The Odeon at Springfield Quay and this is not too far away by car. The lunch deal, £5.95 for two tapas and a coffee or dessert, is exceptional value. The menu has a wide and interesting choice of tapas and each tapa was tasty and authentic. Service was friendly but unobtrusive. The decor is inviting and I was very impressed by the beautiful wine glasses. It was quiet when we dined here and we would like to go back at night. I am sure that this place will really come to life at night when it is packed with diners. It deserves to succeed.
