I found this little place by accident and I was blown away by the extremely good food and imported beers and wines, but the best part of it all is the Staff/owners that go out of their way to please you. The place is small , cozy, decorated simple but interesting at the same time, the music...aahhh, you really feel you are not in Ireland!!! and the best part is that you get all this for extremely reasonable prices!!!! I highly recommend this place.

First time customer. This place is a little gem. Had the goats cheese and caramelized onion salad to share for starters - I'm don't usually order salad in Ireland but this was recommended by a friend and I was not disappointed. Followed this with a seafood and chicken paella which was delicious. The chicken bits were on the bone adding great flavor and there was loads of seafood. There was no shortage of fresh bread and olives brought to the table and the owner/chef was very friendly and kind, popping to all the tables to have a chat with the customers. A great restaurant and a great place to meet friend for fantastic food in a really relaxing atmosphere.

a really funky, good value, authentic Spanish restaurant. A great asset to the city and reasonably priced compared with some of the other Spanish restaurants. Staff really nice and owner came out from kitchen and gave us shots of alcohol and chatted for ages. Left slightly dizzy but extremely impressed!!!!

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.
