Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Went in at 6pm. The waitress helpfully suggested the amount of tapas that would be enough and we ordered patatas bravas, focaccia, tropical salad, mushrooms, pork ribs, chicken and chorizo. The salad was very large and particularly nice with ham, chunks of pineapple with salad...veg and a healthy sprinkle of cheese (prob manchego but not sure). Dessert was churros with chocolate dip and the chocolate fondant. I can happily say that (having had tapas in Spain and London on many occasions) I was more than happy at the quality and freshness of the food. It wasn't immediately served - but that was because it was freshly cooked. I found it to be quite authentic and very flavourful. The staff were friendly and attentive. The restaurant was full incidentally when we left so would recommend booking. I would absolutely come here again. (bill was £55).More

Came all the way to Louth from Lincoln to go for a birthday meal with friends.I ordered the Aubergine, which should have been charred but arrived at the table raw.The waitress replaced it with another dish, and didn't charge me for either, but the service...was very slow and the food generally quite poor. The chef and owner need to visit Ole Ole at The Lawns in Lincoln to see how to do Tapas properly.More

Enjoyed our whole experience here. Even though it was a Sunday evening, the atmosphere was great and the restaurant lively. The staff were helpful and welcoming, and the Chef was really helpful in helping us order, and advised us on Vegan and Vegetarian options. The...food was delicious. Highly recommend!More

We tried three different small plates and two of them needed more flavor/spice because they were bland (moroccan chicken skewer and king prawns). The snails were good, but so hard to get out of the shell. Nice atmosphere and good service. Quaint location on side...pedestrian street. Reasonably priced.More

Really nice meal with friendly service. Also can get meals from 1700 which opens up the evening to go on and do something else. Thought value was good & would not hesitate to return.

This place always seemed full when we passed and we struggled to get a booking but eventually got a table for mid afternoon and it was well worth it. Whilst the cost can soon add up the food was excellent. The waitress was friendly and...explained how the food was served - small sharing dishes brought out at intervals. We were spoilt for choice and could have ordered more if we weren't so full. Would definitely recommend but probably need to book well in advance.More

Really enjoyed our visit, service was exceptional - friendly and prompt. The food was perfectly timed, fresh and tasty. Enjoyed some different dishes such as Spanish black pudding and snails, which I haven’t had for a long time. Also, the toilets are even cleaner than...my toilets at home (and my wife is a right germaphobe!). In total we had 3 sharers (for 2), 2 alcoholic drinks, plus 8 dishes, churros and 2 coffees - total bill was £82 - this was a fair price for the meal. We will return.More
