Used to eat here a lot but now they are just rushing you in and out and the food is shocking. We were served uncooked meat and told it was the style by the waiter (who was clueless and rather rude throughout our meal), but the manager then came over and apologised as it really was almost blue! Many of the dishes come with a film on top where the microwave has overdone it and it is hit and miss whether you get all the dishes that you order (but they turn up on your bill anyway).

Unfortunately this is an easy and convenient venue but after having 3 or 4 bad lunches in here in a row, myself and friends/colleagues decided to give it a miss for the forseeable future.

I took my wife out last night to this tapas bar for a pre-dinner tapas. The waiter asked us if we would like some bread. When the bill came, I was charged £2.00 for the bread, £2.00 for the olive oil and £1.00 for the vinegar. We didnt even use the vinegar!!! I was then charged 15% service charge and they accepted a further 10% tip! Their charges, that you only know about when you get the bill were 30% of the overall bill. What a rip-off!!!!

Evening Meal for 4, we had the Menu 3 for four and the food was very good indeed, The calamari could have been a little crisper but that was the only minor point, Meatballs and potato dishes were lovely. The house Rioja wind was also excellent and the entire meal was very good value as well with good service.
Definitely recommended.

Very impressed with this place. Visited for a birthday party with about 15 people. There was a good atmosphere with background music and the drinks and food menus gave plenty of choice for everyone including vegetarians and really nice non alcoholic cocktails. The manager Miguel helped the evening go well, he was very attentive and accommodating about us bringing a birthday cake and presented it accompanied by happy birthday music to make a fuss of the birthday person, also shook his hand and wished him happy birthday which was a really nice touch. Staff were all very friendly and polite with high quality service. The food was also delicious, the chorizo especially was great quality. Many of the group opted for the set menus for which there is a choice of several and everyone had plenty to eat. It was a big group but all the food arrived promptly. It was also fine for others to have drinks only or come later, so very flexible. It was a great evening - really glad to have found this place and hope to return again soon. There were some alcove areas that also looked good for smaller groups/couples.
