Have eaten in Spain, have eaten at other Spanish Restaurants, family member is from Madrid, but this place is bland. So much potential lost. The fried olives were okay. Bread (with tomatoes) was insipid; croquettes were bland; empanadas filling was tasty but pastry was doughy; calamari flavourless. The patatas braves was just big wedges with a small amount of tomato sauce. Needed much more sauce mixed through and a bit of spice. Atmosphere was pretty good. Drinks good. Just think it needs more spice and flavour in the meals. Nothing like I have eaten before. Disappointing.

Wow, never eaten at a Spanish restaurant before and can't wait to return, yum yum yum. My husband and I had 5 tapas dishes between us and they were all superb. Atmosphere and vibe is good considering they have a lot of tables to cater to.

We hadn't booked and it was packed (not surprising) but the waitress still found us a seat. Meals came out pretty quick considering the amount of people there and couldn't believe the quality at such a busy busy place.

Our waitress was so lovely and helpful and even though she would have been rushed off her feet still had time for a chat. Prices were very very reasonable and I'd def recommend anyone to try this place, makes me hungry thinking about it!!

Enjoyed a lovely Saturday tapas lunch with friends. Service was friendly and efficient, wide range of authentic spanish food and drink choices. Food was very tasty and enjoyable. Recommended.

Lovely looking place for a drink or light meal.

Ordered beef cheeks and lamb to share. Unfortunately both dishes suffered from a lack of seasoning and detracted from what were very attractively presented dishes. Shoudlnt have to worry about such basics in any eating establishment

Had dinner with neighbour.
The food itself was ok, prices were rather high. But it is in south bank,so it was expected.
The waitstaff were just a little bit too attentive.
With so many restaurant nearby, I have too many choices to want to go back to ole.
