“Terrible”
Reviewed 25 May 2014 via mobile

How is it possible to serve tapas with chips added to overcooked vegetables, kidney with a taste of urine, well done ordered bacon served as burned... Service at a indeed low level addressing us having no understanding of tastes when addressing their challenges. Very sorry not understanding that this was a miss before ordering. No quality at all sorry to say.
