“Nice evening”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

I enjoyed some good tapas and cocktails here with some friends which we really enjoyed. However the service wasn't as great and we had to ask for our change and receipt after waiting 15 minutes!

“Slow service”
Reviewed February 23, 2013 via mobile

Food very small portion sizes. Glad I ordered a side order or McDonald's would have been next! Very slow service from staff ended up getting up to order own drinks from the bar. Asked for the bill which never came so had to get up and wait at the bar area to pay.

“Great food and atmosphere.”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

Like many other we frequent our tried and trusted usuall places. This time we thought we would try something new, we were glad we did. The food was great, staff were extremely friendly and a great range of cocktails. We will defiantly be going back to this little gem.

“not the best tapas, just average”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

My daughter has raved about this place for ages, so on a recent visit we decided to go. What a dissapointment. Although we hadnt booked and it was a wednesday night it was busy, however we were soon seated.
The food was mediocre at best. we ordered 12 dishes between 4 of us and started with Nachos. If you like tinned tomatoes youd like the food!!!
Bruschetta was fresh mini toms on french bred round and topped with cheese. When we mentioned this WASNT bruschetta to the waiter he said hed tell the chef, but the chef was spanish so he thought he would know how to make bruschetta!
My daughter ordered a marguerita and the glass broke, as the waitress put it on the table
On the plus side the food was hot and the service ok. However I wouldnt go again Ive had better elsewhere.
