Really excellent food and very good service. Couldn't fault a single dish. Food exceeded expectations, very good quality and perfectly prepared and presented. Waiter was very friendly and helpful. Puddings also delicious.

“A great evening out”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

Really good food, well presented, and friendly service.

Just ask the waiter to make his recommendations...never mind the price, Take the angst out of making decisions and enjoy the company of your friends.Start with, say, 6 dishes between 4 and some wine/beer. If you're hungry after the first set of dishes then order some more, then some more, etc Got it?

We were 4, Had a lovely evening. Went home feeling satisfied but not overfull

Paid about £27 per person

“Great food but service can be a problem”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

We have eaten here quite a few times since it opened. Always impressed with the fine quality of the authentic food and a very nice atmosphere.
Service can be challenging at times and it seems they don't always have enough staff to cope. Paying the bill is often a very protracted process as it often needs correction and we find taking it up to the reception/bar is the most expedient method. However the food more than makes up for these frustrations!

Dined here tonight with friends. Bright clean decor, friendly helpful staff and really delicious food. The tapas was of high quality, beautifully presented and very tasty. Best chorizo I've ever had. Really good. Highly recommended.
