We went with a Groupon voucher for Tapas and Bellini cocktails. I had bought this as a birthday present for a friend. It was a Thursday and the place was empty mainly because the bar man was playing with friends outside. I told him I had read the reviews and thought that they might have got their act together but they hadn't.The meal was appalling, everything was luke warm and I don't think they knew what bruschetta bread was.
The only good thing was the bar man who apologised and was polite when we gave him our comments. He did offer more food but we accepted a couple of pints instead.
There is a bar not far away that could definately give them lessons on Tapas preparation.

We visited with a groupon voucher ( we don't buy very many groupon vouchers but liked the sound of the tapas and cocktails ) It was a Thursday night and we appeared to be the only customers apart from the bar man and another man ( friend / employee). The bar / restaurant was stark, cold and in need of decoration - paint coming of walls, poor quality furniture etc. The staff had no record of our booking ( but later found it in the wrong day) . Attention / service was poor. The belinis were poor - made with flat fizzy wine. There was no lager on draft - waiting for a delivery / white wine - 2 choices - perhaps waiting for a delivery. Atmosphere poor - we were the only customers and football on a large screen, no relaxing music!!!

Food was reasonable - not outstanding, but no real issue with it, except served on stone cold plates - As a result hot foot went cold very quickly. Can't understand why they don't heat the plates prior to service!!

Our conclusion - restaurant obviously financially struggling and failing to address the true reason. We will not be back

I VISITED this Tapas bar last week having bought a groupon Voucher, when I rang to bookI was put off going because theynsaid they were ''fully booked'' after pushing to go they let us book for 5.30pm......

When we arrived there was a few in but by no means ''fully booked''.
we ordered a cocktail and were told when ordering not to order the ''frogs legs''( these were the most expensive thing on the menu) they had 'run out'..(excuse the pun)

we then told we cud have 4 items (between us ) off the menu and one cocktail each, when we added up the items it only came to £30... the voucher stated to £54 worth of food, when I challanged the waiter , he went away, came back and said we could have 6 items.........The food was quite good, the waitress was very good, but definately wouldnt return.....
I think some places buy into Groupon, then dont want to give away what they are supposed to.......
