Had a wonerful meal this evening with some friends and really enjoyed! Thursday night so not too busy! Excellent service and a great varied menu! The chorizo and chicken dishes were really delicious! Ask the staff for their recommendations and don't be afraid to experiment and go with the flow!!

With certainly visit again soon!!

What a lovely place! Fantastic food and excellent staff. Probably the best tapas restaurant we have eaten in. I really cannot recommend this place enough.

A memorable meal for all the right reasons. Kids aged 5-9 all enjoyed their food with several favourites. We did not know what to expect as this was recommended by a local business and we very pleasantly surprised.

I have visited this place last year and wrote an excellent review but was not as impressed but still good

First things first the great bits

Service from the waitresses outstanding
Quality of the rioja for £16 outstanding
Ambience and restaurant décor Excellent.
Spanish donoughts and crème brulee oustanding
Scallops and prawns Lovely especially the black pudding that came with the scallops.
Vegetable stack including peppers and courgettes excellent.
Meat Platter starter fantastic, could have done with a selection of breads rather than one type and a side dish of olive oil and balsamic vinegar

Not impressed/Negatives

Meatballs very bland lacked any kind of seasoning and herbs and the sauce that came on top of them also lacked taste and appeared to be just a passata sauce or chopped tomatoes very bland. Would not order again
Ordered the lamb which was okay but the mash mixture with it was very bland. Would not order again.
Potatoes which were small roasted potatoes also bland and same sauce/mixture over as the meatballs again lacked any herbs or flavour as such or seasoning.

I hope not to offend the owners as we will be back and just hope it can be accepted as constructive comments and I will bear in mind that not everyone wants herbs and spices and seasoning on the food.

Had a fabulous meal for my husband's birthday here, just us and the 2 kids. Real family atmosphere, nothing was too much trouble for the waiter and chef, they entertained with magic tricks and couldn't be more helpful. The food was excellent, one of the best Tapas restaurants we've ever eaten in, and we love Tapas. Will be returning in August with more friends.
