We ate here as a family and were disappointed in the service especially. The food took forever and came out at different times. We had to repeatedly flag down a service person for menus, water, food, the checque, etc. Food was good but waiting for it was hard.

They also have a great drinks menu, I enjoyed a mocktail and happy to see they have some nice options for anyone not wanting alcohol.

What has happened to this place? We eat here maybe there or four times a year whenever in town. It went through a bad patch a couple of years ago but this was the worst meal here ever! The Croquettes were claggy with no chorizo and the Halloumi indescribable. The pork belly luke warm and chewy. Is the chef on... More

One of the most surprisingly enjoyable tapas/lunch meals we've had @ the bay ... ever. Pleasant staff, quick friendly service & cheap. Don't forget to have a Sangria.... awesome. Highly recommended.
