Laid back, casual restaurant, staff very helpful & efficient. Partook of one of their special sampling menus and found same very good and washed food down with good Spanish beer & wine, will certainly revisit restAurant when next in Edinburgh.

First time eating here and will definitely return.
Food was excellent as was the service.
Thoroughly enjoyed the totally laid back atmosphere. I felt totally relaxed here, hence too much wine!!
Never felt pushed at all to hurry, bearing in mind we were using a Groupon vouhcer and I have to say, it was totally worth it. We did buy extra dishes and wine, but was certainly worth it.
Everyone has different opinions, but I would recommend this place, as for me, food, service, value for money and the atmosphere was all very good.
Nothing was a problem for the staff.
Not sure re delivery, late nights or brunch.

Dreadful. Been there once before and it was ok hence return. Perhaps its changed hands but nothing like the original experience. Standard of food really dreadful. Each of the tapas we ordered was covered in a horrible sulphur yellow sauce which they said was aioli (garlic sauce) tasted disgusting with no hint of garlic. Very small portions, horrible slimy squid straight out of a frozen packet. About one tablespoonful of Patatas Bravas which were burnt, and the tiniest piece of tortilla which was also very overdone and dried up. Service awful We walked out. !!!

We were hoping to get a groupon for this place so we could try it. I was just down the street from the apartment we were renting on the Royal Mile. The atmosphere is very laid back and relaxing. The Groupon included two glasses of wine and five plates. We ordered the quesos which was a plate of cheeses and chili jam which was quite tasty. The Albondigas was 4 meat balls with a tomato sauce it was okay but nothing special. The Croquetas Ibericas were covered in a odd sauce but were pretty good.The Chorizo a la sidra was nice spicy sausages. We also had the Calamares which needed to be a little crispier and needed the bright yellow mayonnaise to be left on the side instead of drizzled all over it. It seemed as though our waitress forgot about us as far as refilling our water or asking if we needed anything else. Like the title say we were glad we had a Groupon.

Visited on a Groupon deal but the staff couldn't have been nicer. The food was really nice - particularly the salted padron peppers . Delicious. We bought more wine from a knowledgeable waiter and were there all evening. Extremely relaxed, which is impressive on a Friday evening.
