I booked a table for dinner. On taking my order I was informed that the paella for two was not available. This seemed strange, given that it was only eight thirty and no explanation was offered as to why this was the case. We were disappointed as we have eaten here before and enjoyed this dish very much. However, we ordered some tapas which when it arrived was very tasty. The service was friendly and we enjoyed the evening. It did strike me strange that for a tapas restaurant, unlike in Spain, they wanted the place empty by ten pm! Overall the tapas is great and I would certainly visit again

Went here with the family for a simple weekday lunch in the school holidays. Service seemed initially a little "brusque" but we soon got past that. Went for a platter to start, which was beautifully presented and tasty. Then had a selection of tapas, all of which were excellent. Small plates of sharing food at its best. One of the best meals we've had anywhere. There seemed to be that extra bit of care over everything, and food quality was high. Definitely one for us in the future. Thanks to friends for the recommendation, and I'm embarrassed that we've never been before!

Simple tapas. Full of flavour dishes with great sangria. Informal and relaxed atmosphere. I have been several times and I have not been disappointed yet.

Went here on a business evening meal. All very good: service, choice, food, presentation.
As this is tucked away in a small courtyard I had not found it before. To be recommended and well worth trying if you enjoy Tapas.
