Went yest at 6pm. Ordered 8 tapas, btl Chilean red, 3 desserts between three. All very good especially monkfish recommendation of waiter James. Very friendly and knowledgeable guy, made the visit extra memorable. Staff were all very friendly. Had scouted out potential eats on tripAdv before dining, glad we decided on this. Was really good, better than any tapas I've had in Dublin and the match of fare served up in Spain. Would def recommend.

What a great find! A group of us ate here last night and the food was fantastic. It was the most flavoursome food I have eaten in ages. There was a lot effort put into every dish. My favourite was the haloumi cheese with cous cous. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The restaurant was full with a lively atmosphere and still plenty of space between tables to be able to chat. Something I always l like to see in a restaurant is clean bathrooms and the bathrooms here were meticulously clean!! I would go back to Waterford City just to eat here. Great value for money as well. Book a table to guarantee you don’t miss out on this great restaurant.

What a find. Prices reasonable, food delicious and very good service. You should try to make a reservation. We walked in just after 6pm and they didn't have anything til 8pm. It was worth the wait.
