I visited this restaurant with a group of girl friends to celebrate a birthday. The food which was Spanish themed was all delicious and reasonably priced. Although the proprietors were not Spanish themselves, they had obviously researched their interest and as a result provided an authentic cusine and atmosphere. We had an enjoyable time in quite intimate surroundings.there is limited space, so booking is definitely advisable. This restaurant is approx 20mins walk from the city centre, but there is nearby street parking.

We where luck enough to have booked a table in advance because on Saturday night they where turning people away because they where so busy, which doesn't surprise me because the food is delicious and the staff couldn't do more for you.
We have never had tapas before but the kind ladies explained everything and made suggestions.
We had a shared platter and then some individual dishes which really where wonderful. There is a lovely atmosphere about the place and prices are reasonable. Definitely would return.

Real Spanish food cooked with perfection. Nothing is too much trouble for them. The prices are very reasonable and a good selection of drinks.

What a fantastic restaurant. Small and very friendly, very reasonably priced. Amazing menu and every dish we had was delightful. Creme brûlée is to die for and, as I told the chef, the second best one I've ever had; the best one being from John Torode's restaurant in London. Only open Thursday, Friday and Saturday and certainly a booking required on Saturday evening. Will certainly be paying a visit again.
