First the positive...the service was efficient and friendly but I was disappointed with all five of the tapas. I have been here at least five times over the last few years and always found the tapas to be excellent. Not any more; a salad, soggy pre-prepared and feeling cold straight from the fridge. The calamari tasted frozen and the rest... More

Stayed of the fish this time and really enjoyed the meal. The spicy chorizo was excellent. Also the patatas bravas we one of the best I have had in a while.

I first went here over twenty years ago but last visited around five years ago, when two of us had one of the tall tables opposite the long sides of the bar, admittedly a bit cramped. This time there were six of us and we had a big table right around from the door, next to what was the night... More

We were having a 'catch up' dinner with friends here in January. Food is very nice and not too expensive. The only minus for me would be the fact it’s very crowded. Tables are tiny and the bar in the centre takes definitely too much space. All that doesn’t let you relax while eating, as constantly somebody either is pushing... More

Delicious tapas, the menu has all the typical Spanish dishes. Great wines and music at the weekends. Well worth a visit!

This is my favourite tapas place in London. Staff are very friendly, food is amazing and the wine to go with it is not bad either. The place has a vibrant atmosphere, there is often some live music. Bar seats are much better than the tables as they are tiny and you don't get any space.

We arrived early evening and it was fairly quiet but by the time we finished it was packed out. Interesting tapas selection which we enjoyed. House wine was good and good value. Staff not the most welcoming and definitely wanted to hurry us out at the end. One male and one female loo not really adequate for the numbers seated.... More

There's always a sense of achievement if you get a table here (best to book especially for pre-theatre). Crowded, noisy and with an unappreciated guitar player too. Great selection of Spanish wines and tasty range of all the usual tapas. Not too expensive for central London at around £50 - 60 for two people with a bottle of wine and... More

I got to Waterloo after a morning business meeting with 55 minutes before my train left. It was nearly midday. I was hungry. Where to go? I remembered the excellent Tapas bar near the Old Vic. I was the first one in, though soon there was a steady stream of punters paying for their takeaway paella from the stall outside.... More
