First visited last year as a table of 6 and had a great meal with good service.Went as a large table (16) a couple of weeks ago for a birthday meal and the food and service were awful. Ruined rib eye steak which was dry, overcooked and inedible. Staff were overstretched so declined a replacement. Disappointed.

Turned up without a reservation early on Saturday night, and just managed to get squeezed in. So glad we did. Excellentn tapas, very good wine, and attentive service. Would certainly return on our next trip to Southampton.

This is by far the best Tapas Bar in Southampton!! José not only is super charismatic, but have great suggestions too! We have been eating there several times. Everything is on point: food, flavors, alcohol, and service. The best for me are the Dátiles, Patatas Bravas, and Goat Cheese or Manchego. For drinks, go for Sangría.

Met up with a friend that I haven't seem for years but have known for 40 years. Jamie welcomed us and made us feel comfortable and introduced us to an amazing tapas menu. The gambas a la plancha are, undoubtedly the most amazing dishes you could ever wish for. A large jug of very yummy Sangria later we were still... More

Think this is now our 4th lunchtime visit. The tapas selection is huge and there is an ever changing specials board to go alongside the main menu. It has so far all been prepared and presented excellently. There is an excellent White Rioja on offer for lunchtime drinking as well. The service is just right, attentive enough without being intrusive.... More

For some reason I have always ignored this restaurant before in favour of others in the area. Well, that is going to change from now on. First of all this is a family run restaurant and the family is Spanish. So this is not the fake type of tapas. The menu is extensive, with several tapas dishes as well as... More

As a frequent visitor to Spain this restaurant is as close as it gets to authentic. The restaurant is typically Spanish in décor and style. The service excellent and food extremely good. The choice of tapas is wide and it's easy to over order but why not! We've been here 3 times and I have never been disappointed.

My wife and I ate here on the evening of Thurs 13th April 2017, having eaten here about 2 years ago, when it was outstanding and you know how some locations don't quite seem up to the memory a 2nd time around, this definitely wasn't the case, as again the food, service and atmosphere were excellent and it will be...
