Ate here on a Saturday night. The restaurant was very busy but the service was still good. For a starter we ate three dishes off the tapas menu. The short ribs were particularly tasty. For mains we had pasta. The chicken and sweet potato ravioli was one of the best pasta dishes I have ever eaten. There people were going... More

Very eclectic decor with a couple of different areas for tables, all well spaced and not on top of each other. Staff greeting and assistance was excellent. Menu comprehensive and interesting.

Hopeless staff taking a booking.Got a table for 8 very easily but when I requested a table which could accommodate a person with hearing difficulties they were unwilling to help.

I had visited this restaurant back in Sept 2012 and was really looking forward to going back to it this visit. We had arranged a taxi to bring us here as we weren't sure of the location and it dropped us here 15 minutes early. We were told our table wasn't ready and there was no sitting or bar area... More

Myself and my boyfriend visited here last week and we both agreed that it was one of the best meals that we have had over the last year. The atmosphere, incredibly friendly staff and gorgeous food made it a brilliant experience. We actually finished our meal and ordered more tapas. Everything was delicious. I couldn't recommend it enough.
