Some rave about the paella in this place but I found it greasy and TV dinner like. The asparagus appetizer was great. Cozy place but in my view a little over rated.

We have been to this restaurant a number of times.

It's a favourite with teenagers who can choose a number of dishes for variety.

It's also quite fun to find out what you've ordered when it arrives not quite as you expected!

The wine was also excellent.

I happen to live close by this place, but had never been there. So i was really surprised about it. I eat out a lot and this place is just great. Food was tasteful and delicious. Nice staff and great atmosphere. Start ordering some bites just to get your palate ready and accurate for the next courses. Highly recommended! Will come for more!

Maria, from Thistle Kensington Gardens HIGHLY recommended this Spanish Resturante. OUTSTANDING! We were in London for only 8 days... it was the only resturante we visited more than once! Because... we HAD TO GO BACK FOR MORE EXCELLENT FOOD!
EVERYTHING on the menu is great!
The wait staff is friendly and has a great atmosphere! MAKE RESERVATIONS if dinning after 7pm.
They also offer an affordable lunch menu.
Gourmet menu... at affordable prices:)
If in London... you MUST go there!

I had dinner here with a bunch of friends and we ordered a selection of food. All was very well done, great cooking and some lovely inventive dishes that one would not normally expect in a tapas restaurant but at the same time is not out of place either.

Great atmosphere, clean, good service too.
