This is a great little place. We go here quite regularly. Food is all freshly cooked. Just be aware it comes out as soon as it's cooked and does not sit waiting until the entire table is ready. This way you get it immediately, fresh and the quality is not tarnished. Good choice of food too.

While visiting The Lanes in Brighton we have often walked past this little restaurant with a few tables outside & it's always busy. We decided to stop for tapas on a busy Saturday lunchtime & we're not disappointed. Great tapas especially the garlic prawns. Good friendly service & reasonable prices. Good for people watching too

I have been here in the past and it was great, but I went last night and started getting super sick in the early hours. I phoned up to let them know as if I were a restauranteur, I would want to know. They just said that there was no way to prove it as food poisoning can sometimes take... More

We love our tapas and really pleased to find this place. Not over elaborate but tasty, good quality food freshly prepared. Reasonable prices too. Cosy inside with friendly staff.

Good service and reasonable prices but was not all that impressed with the food, olives were not good, cold meats tasteless, and most dishes luke warm. The restaurant is very small and was packed but surprisingly quite cold inside. Will not be returning.

I had a really nice double date here with some friends of mine. Despite being very small inside and the chairs not being particularly comfortable, the atmosphere was really nice; cosy and fun. The food was delicious. I would recommend the seafood platter, the fried goats cheese and Caramelised onions and the classic chorizo. Good wine, good food, good service.... More

Firstly, the food is excellent. Patatas bravas in blue cheese sauce and the lamb stew tastes lovely- the red organic wine tastes too good and has left me with a hangover on more than one occasion! The staff are all very friendly and keep the drink and food coming regularly. However as mentioned in previous reviews don't expect fancy furnishings!!... More

My wife and I ate here on a Friday night, the restaurant is tiny with everyone packed into a space no bigger than a reasonably sized front room. We ordered a range of tapas and settled back to enjoy. Things started to go amiss when we received a jug of Sangria that we had not ordered, however we decided to... More

Have enjoyed good food and service here but on this last visit was disappointed at the service. On a busy Friday evening the staff appeared to lose focus and we felt , that as we were in the back area, we were slightly neglected. Also the food was not up to normal standard.

It's a small cute restaurant, not many tables that's why I think is got that homely feeling. I've been there few times and I end up spending few hrs eating and drinking being very relaxed. The wine is good and they have a good selection. Taps are very nice and having a lot of intolerances they are always very helpful... More
