Enjoyed looking at menu choices making it very difficult to choose! Our tapas arrived quickly having been freshly cooked. Richard was attentive, giving the personal touch so lacking in many restaurants. He made us feel special on our night out - a bit of normality...More

A first visit to this restaurant, it will not be our last. All the staff were friendly but particularly Richard who genuinely seemed interested in us as people. His suggestions for both eating and drinking were spot on. My husband particularly enjoyed the recommended beer.

Authentic and delicious Spanish food, tapas. Great service, ambience, and staff There is an outside eating area, or sit up upstairs, watching the workd of Ripon go by! Great value for money. Don't miss it, especially if you're visiting the area!
