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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Fair review.. Food was lovely.. when it arrived.. had a 50 minute wait.. which would have been okay if we had of been told.. but we had to chase it.. waiter was lovely.! Returned my wine twice Marlborough New Zealand sauv.. this is the only...wine I drink so I know it was not this.. ordered half a peroni instead.. presumed the wine would be taken off of the bill.. When the bill arrived the wine was still on it plus a £3.55 water we never ordered. I questioned the bill and then a lady came over and informed me I returned the wine with a sip left.. not the case it was easily 175ml out of 250ml.. which costs £11.55.. Would of been happy if they had of taken the water off which we didn’t have and the not nice wine and charged me for the peroni.. if this was sorted with respect would of returned, but I felt awkward and disrespected.More

Unfortunately really disappointing. Both quality of our meals and service really lacking. I've been here in the past for tapas and it has been lovely and the place I really like. But .....I can't recommend this place for an evening meal, there is no way...this was good. In fact both me and my partner both questioned if the rice was Batchelors savoury rice! Real shame cos this was for my 60th birthday and left hungry and disappointed.More

Really enjoyed the meal here. We selected 6 tapas dishes between the two of us which proved to be excessive although we did nearly manage to polish it all off. It was a warm evening so we had the bonus of sitting outside. Would happily...return next time we visit Worcester.More

Outstanding food. Have been a here a few times but not for while - more fool me! I like to think Ii know what good looks and feels like when I am eating and drinking... and this is much better than good. Went for the...Tapas 5 for £30 menu as the choice is terrific. Each of our choices were superb however special mention must go to the Garides Saganaki which is the absolute Bogs Dollocks! Wine list is good enough too and had a glass of the Spanish white which was more than pleasant to wash things downMore

Initially joined Remi Harris and his band, who were playing in St Swithuns, and were having a pre gig meal. They had various pizzas which they all said were amazing. I only had a latte which was excellent, as I was meeting friends My friends...arrived and we were taken upstairs to the main restaurant. We chose 10 different tapas dishes to take advantage of the 5 for £30 offer. Every dish offered a different taste sensation. Throughout the time I spent here the service was excellent even when it started to fill up Looking forward to returning which I definitely will!More

We managed to book last table at 6pm so could benefit from cocktail and tapas deals. Lovely warm atmosphere with great service from all the staff throughout our meal. Had the best gambas pil pil calamari lamb kofte chorizo and beef shawarma. All superb dishes...As were the cosmopolitans. Great experience all round and highly recommend but definitely book aheadMore

Two for lunchtime walk-in. Interesting menu to choose from, in friendly ambience. We chose several small plates, all well-presented, freshly prepared and very tasty.

We are regulars and yesterday was even better, which I didn’t think possible. Three of us had the tapas plus two side dishes. We ordered two Chicken tagine which was delicious. When it all arrived we thought we’d never get through it all, but we...couldn’t bring ourselves to leave anything. I then ordered a takeaway for my husband, so a lovely no cooking day .More

We booked here for a Saturday lunch time treat and were so happy with our choice. The food was stunning, such delicious flavours. We had a mix of sides and Tapas to share between 2. The Truffle potatoes and the trio Funghi tapas, I would...particularly recommend. We shared a white sangria pitcher also which was nice and fresh. The staff were friendly and efficient. The atmosphere was buzzing but did not feel too crowded. Would recommend booking. All in all a great dining experience and would visit when back in Worcester.More
