This is a great little tapas restaurant, our waitress was very friendly and chatty. The food was tasty - the chorizo in cider very tender (had to have another helping !!)
Would certainly go again when visiting Alnwick - they also serve Illy coffee a definite plus in my book !

Fortunate enough to land the last table on a busy Saturday evening in this snug tapas restaurant. Remembered the location from a previous visit many years ago when it was a coffee bar - our host brought us up to speed on its development into all things Espana!

It's almost an impossible task to please everyone as far as tapas is concerned. Some want every dish at once, others in a sequence only they had preconceived. Others complain portion sizes are too generous or, on the flip-side, underwhelming. Cafe Delicious delivered across the board as far as we were concerned. Dishes brought out in regular intervals without leaving you feeling like the table was buckling under the weight. Beautifully presented and very inspiring choices of specials. The host was everything you could wish for, attentive yet not over-bearing and seemed genuinely taken aback when we praised the evening on departure.

I must say, the tipple of a fine hazelnut licor helped no end! I won't reveal the name as it should rightfully remain a trade secret. All I can say is try Cafe Delicious and you will discover a way to wash your meal down like never before!

Bravo!

We called in on the offchance on holiday and were able to take advantage of the very reasonable 3 tapas for £12 offer before 6pm. We had a good selection to choose from and enjoyed every one.
The staff were extremely friendly and welcoming.
If we lived nearer, I think we would definitely go back!

I booked this place for 10 work colleagues on a Friday night at 8pm which being a tiny place was very cruel of us. But they handled this challenge extremely well. We were seated immediately and soon the drinks were flowing. The guy really knows his stuff and he recommended some very tasty meals for us to try and we had a great time. Some of us had deserts and it came to around £20 a head and with non of us leaving hungry or sober I think that's a bargain!! If you do go though try the chocolate pots. Heaven in a dish :)
