Visited hoping for a decent bottle of wine & some tapas. Was told by a rather unfriendly member of staff that we could only eat upstairs, which was uninviting and basic. Hardly capturing the Spanish ambiance!!! Was told the kitchen is closed from 9.30 - on Valentine's day!! Downstairs the staff were sour faced & ignorant. My partner stood at... More

We went here for a drink and returned for food on another evening. There was a lovely fire burning which helped warm us up after a cold walk. The tapas are excellent and the service was relaxed yet attentive. Would return, would recommend it and I hope to find a restaurant near me that has as good a list of... More

Love this place! Had a few drinks in the bar downstairs and given a buzzer whilst we waited for a table upstairs to eat. Very busy and popular place so allow yourself time. Food amazing and recommended 3 tapas per person which was plenty for us. Will definitely be visiting here again :)

Service over all was great. We wanted to sit in a booth but there wasn't enough of us to warrant that apparently, that was the only disappointing thing. The food was fast and tasted good. The prices are very reasonable. We would visit again

We have visited this place several times when visiting Windermere and we are never disappointed. The cocktails are great and not just full of ice or juice. Well worth the price. We love the staff, music and general ambience. Not to be missed !!! We will be back again.

This is a beautiful cosy bar with a lovely fire but I thought the Tapas, although lovely was expensive for the portion size. I have been to many Tapas bars and the portion sizes were smaller than usual.

Great attentive service. Would recommend this bar and restaurant to anybody jus get there early to avoid disappointment as you cannot... More
