We’ve been looking for a new good tapas restaurant for a long time and have finally found one! We went for lunch today and were delighted. The food is really good, service great and prices very reasonable. Also the menu is interesting, with a few...unusual options as well as the standard tapas offerings. We’ll definitely be going back. Highly recommended.More

We were in Southgate visiting grandchildren My husband spotted this restaurant and we thought we'd give it a go. I am nervous in these covid times and was uncertain about eating in a restaurant but without hesitation the owner found a table well spaced and...near the door. After that we really enjoyed our meal. There is such a variety of food. We had about 6 tapas plus olives and bread between us. All were really delicious. Our waiter had exactly the right balance of professionalism and friendliness. I wonder if Southgate appreciates this hidden gem in its midst. Highly recommend.More

This was a regular go to place for Spanish food but for some reason we stopped going, I'm not sure why because the food is very good. We had a selection of tapas and they were all very tasty. The atmosphere was buzzy but not...over loud.More

We have eaten here before and found the food very tasty. Unfortunately on this occasion it was very disappointing. The draft Sam Miguel was flat although my wife's rose was fine. Slow cooked beef was tender but really lacked flavour. The squid in batter was...soft and flavourless, there were no dips. Whitebate crisp but again no dip or flavouring. Such a shameMore
