Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Fabulous food, good wine and great service. All the tapas dishes were excellent, I especially liked the cod bites. The paella was tasty but a bit too salty.

A hidden gem off the beaten track, down stone stairs to a basement restaurant. The staff were pleasant and welcoming, the restaurant had a rustic feel but the toilets were exceptionally clean which in a city centre location is very commendable The wine selection is...limited but our choice was very good. The food was flavourful and well presented and for me dare I even pinch myself to say it, the vegetarian aubergine dish was a star! I enjoyed the food and cocktails and the crème brûlée had a great flavour A great find and we would be happy to repeatMore

Highly recommend this restaurant. Amazing authentic Spanish cuisine, great vibe and love the decor. The guy that mostly served us (maybe owner or head front of house, not sure) introduced the menu and specials with such passion, so animated and proud of the dishes, he...brought the food alive! That said, food was amazing, I wanted it to last forever. Very much a hidden gem!More

Absolutely fantastic food and great value. We had four tapas between us (which was plenty for lunch) and a drink each, came to £35 better us. Plenty of vegetarian choices, and the place is a funky basement with lovely staff. Go!

What a fantastic little restaurant! Absolutely loved the food & the waitress staff were friendly & helpful. Not sure about the bald man with the tattoos though! I think he must be the manager. He made it feel ‘clicky’ with his hugging & kissing to...his obvious regulars. Will definitely visit again just for the foodMore

We lived our meal here on a Friday night. There were so many delicious sounding options on the menu and we chose 7 different dishes which were all great. The service was super friendly and we had good fun talking with all the servers who...were very helpful.More

My Spanish friend married on 23/1/2024. What a special restaurant this is. Not only is the food unbelievable (paella to die for. Nothing to beat this!) but the Valencia’s manager was genuine and his staff so friendly. Please visit this place. You will be forever...grateful!More

Food was amazing and wine choice fab too. Would have stayed all day if we didn’t have plans. Only the 2nd time we’ve been, but definitely not our last. Friendliest staff ever, very welcoming and attentive. (forgot to take photos when everything arrived so this...one doesn’t do the place justice)More

The best tapas I have had. Visiting the Motorpoint Arena which was a couple of minutes walk away. We had a table booked based on the great reviews. The restaurant is ideally situated between the train station and the arena. The food was superb quality...with great flavours. The service was very friendly and attentive. I would totally recommend this restaurant for great quality tapas. I would not hesitate in visiting again when next in NottinghamMore

The best tapas we've ever had in England! The food was phenomenal and the service by Lorentes himself was brilliant. We will be back to try out the paella! Thank you for a lovely afternoon.

Hi Ian. Yes the restaurant is down a flight of brick steps, from street level to the restaurant which is a basement type place. I didn’t see a lift there but might be worth checking directly with the restaurant. All the best.
