We enjoyed the 4 course set menu, the entrée selection was my favourite but overall very nice flavours and variety. 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. Friendly service, main did take awhile to come out but that's the only bad thing... More

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

This was one of my favorite places to eat as I love Tapas and Spanish beer. But now I cannot find the dishes that kept me coming back like : Iberico Jamon Serrano Jamon Piquillo peppers Potato & Jamon Croquettas Green beans & asparagus Scallops with crispy Jamon And no more raciones! Now I see grilled haloumi, pork belly and... 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.

After asking three times and watching other people come and go we finally received our meal...... Then it was not worth waiting for! Tried to tell Manager that did not really care at all. Many other places to choose to eat at down Glenelg

I go here approx every other month and it never disappoints! The food is all yum and i love it when they have Tapas specials just to mix things up a bit. They have a menu of different Sangrias! And they're in the Entertainment book. Great for a fun dinner with friends!

Situated in the tourist strip amongst a sea of cafes. We came for a late breakfast. I'm tempted to call it the worst service I've experienced in a restaurant, but that would imply that service actually existed. We found a table outside by ourselves and waited to be served. Someone came and cleared our table from the previous occupants -... More
