“Fantastic Food and Excellent Service!”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

We turned up at 7.30 on a Saturday night with no booking, we were able to leave our mobile number and were called within 30 minutes for a table. Food was AMAZING and service was fantastic. It's a great set up with customers being able to watch their food being made. Will definitely be going back!

“Fantastic food!”
Reviewed January 17, 2014

We've been to Spain & just found this quaint bar to do some great traditional dishes. Has a good wine list. We like that it's relaxed dining.

“Excellent”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

Wonderful food, friendly staff and great music, what's not to like?! Very impressed and also a nice touch that they went around double checking there were no last orders before closing the kitchen.

The pork belly with lentils is to die for!

“Totally Enjoyable Experience”
Reviewed January 2, 2014 via mobile

We visited this place last year and had to go back. You can't book but they are very efficient getting you a table ASAP. We decided to have a few drinks at their bar and enjoyed a very nice spanish sparkling while chatting to the bartender who recommended some lovely reds for dinner. We were eventually seated on a bench in front of the kitchen watching the food being prepared. It was great watching the care that was put into every plate that was served. The service was fast, friendly and efficient. The food arrived quickly and was very tasty. The wine by the glass was not cheap but very good. Well worth a visit and worth the wait for a table if you turn up in a busy period. Your patience will be rewarded. My only complaint was that as a vegetarian I noticed the carnivores were getting interesting looking lentil and chickpea garnish's (sp?) that weren't available to the vegos. The chef explained they were made with meat stock. It would be nice if something like that was available on the menu for the vegetarians as it looked pretty tasty. Great place. Make sure you go.

We enjoyed our Tapas evening immensely! Patatas bravas, tortilla, gazpacho, jamón, chicken skewers, chorizo and beans, sangría, all superb. Service was excellent. Would highly recommend!!
