“Good food, good service, good recommendations...”
Reviewed 26 August 2014

This was my first visit to the restaurant with a group of friends. We have varied tastes including one person with strict dietary needs and one pregnant tee-totaller. We were promptly showed to our table and the waiting staff couldn't have been more helpful with all of our choices and dietary requirements.

We had 2 sides, 6 tapas, four drinks with dinner (1 soft, 3 alcoholic beverages) 1 coffee, 1 desert and three cocktails. All in the bill was only £60 so also excellent value for money.

All of the food options were very good. We tried a very varied range of foods and we thoroughly enjoyed everything.

We will definitely be eating here again....!

Well done to all the staff.

“Good standard”
Reviewed 26 August 2014

We had dinner here on Friday 15th August, we had not booked but it was not a problem; the restaurant was quite busy. The service was fine although not personal but that was no problem, our tapas arrived in a reasonable time and although you can never really get authentic tapas outside of Spain; they were of good quality and the servings were spot on. Would go back if I were in Dundee again.

“Awful experience”
Reviewed 23 August 2014 via mobile

From last year which was great to this year which was awful.. Was clear to see that standards had slipped.. Service took an age to get anything from a waitress to the bill at the end..the steak was so bad we had it deducted from the bill... Not going back.

“Tapas and that!”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

Three of us went for lunch and we all thoroughly enjoyed our meal, there are plenty of options to choose from, the restaurant was very clean and the staff friendly and helpful. We will certainly be planning a return visit.

I think it was £5.99 for two dishes or £7.95 for three, a far nicer and cheaper dining experience than some of the better known eatries in the immediate vicinity.

“Unexpected delightful experience”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

We intended to a visit another restaurant but it was busy with a lengthy wait for a table. On the spur of the moment we decided to try the tapas nearby which proved to be an excellent choice. A very pleasant young man showed us to a booth and let us peruse the excellent menu. We were spoilt for choice but decided to have the classic paella to share and it was delicious. Thank goodness we chose not to have a starter as we would not have been able to fully enjoy the wonderful paella. My Husband finished off the meal with a sorbet and I had the crème catalana both were to die for. Very pleasant and enjoyable visit that we will have to repeat great service, fabulous food and excellent value for money.
