Loved the vibe in this place, especially on a Saturday night. Service was super quick and all dishes very tasty. Liked the skewers hanging over a bed of fries. Excellent value for money!

Booked a table, but didn’t really pay attention to that. Was told to wait at the bar and we would be called. Seated. Staff really friendly. Good atmosphere. Very busy. We ordered several plates of tapas. They were “ok”. Nothing spectacular. Gambas wasn’t sizzling. It...More

Food was good and the waiters were very friendly - a bit like a family in there. The only thing to let it down was feeling rushed and a little harassed. We were there at 7PM on a Thursday and it wasn't busy at all....More
