We visited here in Friday night however we arrived late due to the freak rain that decided to occur! The staff were very helpful and accommodated this no problem, making us feel very welcome. We ordered a range of dishes, all of which were extremely tasty and fresh but the pan fried pigeon special was especially good. Tip- try the sangria, it is very good, I almost had the whole jug to myself!

I had read all the positive reviews on Tripadvisor about this restaurant, so had high hopes. Once there with 3 other friends, I began to wonder if I was in the same place. The staff were very helpful and friendly, but the food was terrible. I ordered Pan Catalan, which I have had all over Spain and really love for its simplicity and clean flavours. This one consisted of pale, soggy tomato on indifferent bread, and did not taste of anything much apart from the chives scattered on top. My croquetas were worse, the crisp outside tasted stale, and I could not eat it. The pea puree on which they sat was lovely. Patatas bravas were soggy little cubes of fried potato with a not bad spicy tomato sauce on top. All of those things were quite simple and could have been lovely, but were not. I avoided the desserts, as I could see what the people at the next table were having, and it did not look appetising.

I had lunch here with my son and his family, having heard them rave about the food for a while! I loved it, and could have made such a pig of myself with no effort at all. The banana curry was a little unusual as a tapas dish, I thought, but it was gorgeous - my 5 year-old grandson recommended it very highly! - and there was just so much that was wonderful. The staff were great, and very helpful, advising on wine etc with obvious love of the job. I so look forward to being able to return!

Would recommend booking as very busy. Staff greeted us on arrival and offered a table in the bar or a table for 2 at the back of the restaurant which was fine. The staff were very knowledgeable and recommended a great beer (Estrella Inedit). We ordered a set meal for 2 and one of the specials which was fantastic. The bar staff came and gave us a fully explanation of the Sherrys and as we were new and ended up ordering a Flight A. Highly recommend this restaurant

We booked a table for a Saturday night, seated straight away, menu was very nice, could of chose more than the 3 dishes each we ordered, only issue we had was a bit of a delay with our drinks, think they forgot about us, they were very apologetic but apart from that it was a very enjoyable evening
