A large group of us went for dinner. The food was really nice and catered for a variety of dietary needs. There was also a good selection of drinks. However I felt that the service could have been a bit better.

We had a lovely evening. Great service and lovely food!!! There were 4 of us and we had 4 starters and 9 main dishes, worried we’d ordered too much and would have wasted it but it was just right! Definitely be going back.

Definitely. Grab a super bottle of wine or two and dive into a variety of tapas. It's delicious. One of our favourite restaurants.
