Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Lovely little Spanish Tapas restaurant. Staff were friendly and helpful. Food was delicious with a good choice. Suggest booking in high season as were busy when we where there mid-June.

Father’s Day and our fourth visit to this wonderful little restaurant did not disappoint. Always keen to take friends there when they visit us, it’s a 30 minute drive from where we live on the edge of the moor, but well worth it. Have seen some negative comments about menu choices and can’t understand the problem- I don’t eat meat and there’s plenty of fish and vegetarian choices along with meat choices. Lovely atmosphere, and the staff are always friendly and welcoming along with great service. :-)

We were staying in Lynton for a couple of nights and booked a table as we had not had tapas for a long time. Good job we booked as it was very busy. The staff were very polite and efficient. The food was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening.

Service is very plesant and friendly, but food is basic and very small and costly. We did feel robbed after paying the bill. Wine is budget but with a high price tag.

Amazing place, genuine authentic food that was beautifully presented, we are frequent travellers to Spain and can honestly say these chefs are amongst the best! Every dish we had was tasty and left us wanting to taste more. Fave had to be the pork skewers, we will 100% be back soon!

This tapas bar isn't what we expected to find in Lynton. But we're very glad we did. After three weeks travelling around England, this has been our best meal so far. We ordered six dishes between the two of us and it was the perfect amount. Two were vegetable based which meant they were lighter. Oops, we also had tortilla which is also vegetable based (potato) but even it wasn't too heavy. I spotted the Spanish rice pudding on the menu and couldn't go past it. It was yum. Creamy and delicious with some lovely crunchy puffed rice on top. It's not the cheapest night out but that seems to be common for England. The two staff members we interacted with were both friendly and very helpful. Recommended.

We went to the Oak Room to do a tester for a future meal out. At the end of the evening I had booked for the very next night. The staff were lovely and the food was superb. Nothing to worry about there. On the next night we ordered a selection and all were cooked to perfection. The deserts were to die for. A lovely place in deed and I cannot wait to go back .

We’ve been here quite a few times over the past year and once again we had a really lovely evening before walking across the road to the Lynton cinema. Food is authentic, attractively presented and the service is so friendly. Highly recommended.

This small tapas restaurant has a good choice of menu and drinks and never fails to deliver good quality food each time we visit. The staff are attentive and professional.
