The food was good, however everyone in my party who has been here more than 4 times was quite disappointed as they felt the standards have dropped. I however enjoyed the food and thought the food was great.

We enjoyed a lunchtime tapas here and were very pleasantly surprised that the dishes were not only extremely tasty but very substantial. The tuna is a speciality of the house and should not be missed. The staff could not have been more helpful.

Had a quick bite here, mini burgers with beef and with tuna steak were great, tuna tartar was absolutely delisious, superfresh. I would recommend to reserve in advance because it's a busy place

Visited this place a couple of times. Menu has quite a fishy focus and everything we tried was delicious. It has a great vibe with friendly staff who seemed to be enjoying their day. Felt like very good value too.

We may be a bit biased because we love Spanish food, and this was our first tapas in a long-time (last in Spain 10 years ago) but we were really impressed with the meal here and definately recommend. We had 3 different tapas and each one was divine. Seating is inside or out. Service was good.

Thank fatsprat
