“Excellent food”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

This is a really good addition to the restaurant offering in Louth - an imaginative menu, changing every day, reasonable prices and not over-crammed with tables despite the fact it is full every night. Only slight gripe is the choice of background music - quite often it's house dance-style Spanish music, which may suit the 20-something staff but not the 40-50 year old typical diner, especially as the place doe lean towards a romantic ambience. There is plenty of gorgeous Spanish music they could use, from softer pop and rock right through to Gabrielle & Rodrigo, and of course the famous classical guitar classics. Something to consider for management?

“A great tapas bar and wonderful atmosphere”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

My husband and I have dined here twice and not been disappointed at all. The food is very good and the staff friendly and helpful. We have been to some places in Spain and not been able to find tapas as good as it is here. We also love the Estrella beer!

“Loved it, can't wait to go again!”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

Loved everything about the place. Its only a small place so does get booked up quickly but it is worth waiting for. The food is excellent, lovely atmosphere and reasonably priced.
