For starters, meals are small. I had to order double portions so it doubles the price and ends up being £22 per meal. The waitress yesterday told me she was not allowed to replace potatoes with vegetables. After I insisted due to my food intolerance, she made an exception.
My waiter today brings my grilled chicken breast so dry so i can lift it up off my plate by holding only a small corner of it. Its a piece of wood.
The grill was so dirty that I had my meal covered in coal particles. The food looked hazardous. When I complained and said that I needed to wash it before eating, they took it away and brought back in a few minutes - washed.
I had a choice to starve at 10pm or eat that washed chicken and write this review. I ate it.
They still managed to put vegetables as extra on the bill.
I'm not going back to this place for dinner ever again.

Excellent choice of food, great quality, we had 11 tapas dishes. Try the meatballs in chilli they are amazing. Service very good.

The variety on the menu made choosing difficult, although when I settled on my meal, I was not disappointed. The service was efficient and pleasant.

Not a lot I can say about this restaurant, apart from it is some of the worst food I have ever eaten. We had purchased a groupon voucher for a tapas meal. It was most definately not tapas, and included what appeared to be paxo stuffing balls and frozen party food from iceland (not to impune iceland). It was all quite tasteless. Please do not waste your money by going here.
