Excellent choice of venue for a get together with some old friends. Lovely authentic tapas dishes served nice and hot together with a great choice of paella, wines and Estrella on draught. We went as a group of 6 on a Saturday evening and had made a reservation which I would think is a must otherwise expect to be disappointed.... More

Sangria was lovely! Restaurant is small so the tables are small so we had to do some juggling to get all the food on the table and... More

The staff and chefs were excellent, I was able to speak in Spanish to order our food, which they seemed to appreciate. the whole evening was very enjoyable and the tapas and paella was fantastic. Can't wait to go again and take the family.

We visited here on Friday. We booked the table online, we were greeted with a nice warm smile. Then we ordered some red wine and a mixture of tapas .The service was quick and the food was amazing. The wine was lovely and it's a gem of a restaurant. A must visit but you have to book .

We had a lovely lunch with very good recommendations by staff. Food is very authentic and freshly cooked. Staff were very attentive but not over the top. Highly recommended and will visit again.

We all had the tapas selection which was delicious and included all our favourites, king prawns, mushrooms, peppers padron, calamares to name a few, finishing with paella. Impressed that we were given a choice of paella (seafood or chicken) on what was essentially a... More
