Its easy to get to. There's only people walkin past (no cars) and the place is always buzzing. You should reserve a table as most often it will be full especially at happy hour times. As this is one of the restaurants in a group that also includes Bacar (next door) and Enoteca, yu can order from any of ther menus and the food is great. Tapas style fusion with spanish, african, asian cuisines all blended in a heavenly fusion. Do not miss the sangrias! We generally have a great boys night out here s there seems to always be a gender imbalance and the men are always outnumbered, so great place for people watching.

Far away from serving spanish tapas...maybe asian fusion the quality is average but ok for what you pay...limited choice, the service it's just ok...over all experience it's a ok place for a quick bite last minute with some friend and beer....

Located on the famous escalator on Shelly street, Soho, this Tapas joint is always busy, busy, busy. One of the main complements to the food is the fact that ex pats come back here time and again.
Ask for the chicken perri perri. It is not on the menu but it is a favorite if you know about it!
Also recommend the prawns and the beef but definatly try the duck rolls.

We were recommended to this restaurant by locals. It's a really popular ex pat tapas destination after work so do book if you want to eat. The Tapas selection is stunning and you will not be disappointed by the taste. It was so good we went twice in our 6 day trip. The view of the Central escalator is a little unexpected but that aside this is a great place to go. Good food , great atmosphere and very reasonably priced.
