Docked is an amazing restaurant that combines a great environment along with an exceptional fusion of ingredients. it is one of a kind thanks to a Master Chef which provides an elegant and unique way of cooking. A must see place!!!

One of my favourite places!

I recently bought a deal for Docked which recommended that it was sufficient for four people. Walked in to find a dog in the restaurant, not the kind of thing I want to see when eating. They were very unfriendly and considering I am Spanish myself, I was not impressed with their customer service or some of the things I heard the staff discussing.

The food was twelve pieces of stale bread with barely any toppings and considering there were four of us, we got one jamon pinxto to share?? Very disappointed and when we were asked if we wanted drinks ended up having a very limited menu with no spirits at all.

Would not recommend to anyone. Overpriced and unfriendly.

The tapas were good, but they tried to double charge us for everything. When you order, make sure you specify you want "ONE order of the nachos" or whatever. We just said "We'll try the nachos" so they brought out two orders instead of one like we wanted. It was definitely done in a shady manner.

Great view, though.
