We just ate there today, two professors from the University and five students. All seven of us were very impressed. The garlic chicken, the slow cooked lamb, the generous meat and cheese plate, the gorgeous hot prawns, yum. Lots of bread brought out to help us soak up the amazing sauces and marinades which cradled each dish of freshly cooked food. Very reasonable and the coffee was also very tasty. Well done girls!

Went to this newly opened restaurant recently, had never had tapas before. love my food so decided to try it out for lunch. Was quite shocked at the prices first, most tapas were about 8 euros or around that price, which are for sharing. i ordered two and my friend ordered two, you have to really because one tapas would not be sufficient for lunch and you would go away hungry! When they came down, some were tasty some burnt and almost inedible. i say "almost" because i was so hungry i devoured everything. Most things were deep fried and you could really taste that. The ham and cheese croquettes were good, as were the mussels. The The pork stuffed with black pudding was so hard and overcooked i nearly choked on it at one stage. Desserts are roughly about 6- 6.50, which i felt were pricey. The place was empty except for some Spanish people who worked there or were friends of the owners standing around talking Spanish. I will admit that the restaurant has a fun, quite authentic feel to it with its cheery Spanish decor. The gentleman that served us seemed nice. I enjoyed the olives and bread that were provided. However; i do feel that they should have a lunch special deal on because i spent nearly 20 euros in there between getting a soft drink and the two tapas. I really really wanted to like this place, but I don't think that i will be back unfortunately.
