To celebrate a friend's significant birthday, I visited with a group of friends. This was not our first visit, but we hadn't been for a while. We had opted for an early evening meal. Although we were the only diners, we all felt happy and relaxed. Having been before, we knew what to expect. Our non fish eater was well... More

What can I say? I was utterly surprised by the service, the thoughtfulness and, most of all, the food - I have rarely had such tasty, enjoyable food in the UK, Even though I was on my own, I felt valued and I could not fault the food - the wine was pretty awesome too. Thank you Sun and Shade,... More

I have Spanish family and am no stranger to Spanish cuisine. I can, hand on heart, say that this is the best tapas I have had outside of Spain. This is definitely deserving of a special visit. The setting is very small and intimate. I think booking ahead will be essential. The staff are absolutely brilliant. For £17.50 (lunch) or... More

Really enjoyed our visit to this tapas bar. It's not too overcrowded and the service was great. Food quality was phenomenal. They brought two of every dish and explained what they were. The fish dishes in particular were a favourite of ours. The only thing worth mentioning is that I expected more dishes to come? It was a good amount... More

We were a party of four people and arrived quite late in the restaurant. The staff was very polite and found as a table even though the place was almost full. The tapas menu was really tasty and the quality of the ingredients was very good. The service was outstanding. Every dish was explained in detail when served. Great evening!
