Absolutely nowhere did it mention that the party menus are per person. Naïvely I believed that as this was a shared, set menu it would be a shared price. The manager explaining the way the menu works didn't explain this either, and the waiter agreed that it was far from clear. The manager on the day did not know what the meal involved and we had to remind them that our glass of cava was included in the meal. Food was lovely but was completely not worth the £60 I had to pay for a sharer meal. Awaiting a call back from the restaurant manager to discuss this issue.

We booked a table through open table for a 5.30 meal prior to seeing Michael Mcintyre on Saturday, we arrived at 5.20 after giving our name to the greeter who could not find our booking, I had to show him the confirmation email from open table to which he replied he would go and speak to his manager. We were then met by Jamilla who point blank told us that we would have to eat quickly as they wanted the table back within an hour, to which we replied we would take as long as needed and would not be rushed. We got the impression that she did not want to serve us and if we had the time we would have probably gone elsewhere.
After being shown to our table which there were plenty of other empty tables, we then had an apology from the waitress after we explained how rude the manager had been.
We ordered six tapas meals from the menu which were nice and had no complaints other than the cost.
After the main we ordered two creme catalana which in the description would be served at our table with an amazing brulee crust, what arrived were two puddings with suger sprinkled on top, when I called the waitress over and explained that there was no amazing brulee crust and that you should be able to crack the top open with a spoon, she then returned them to the kitchen and after 10 minutes came back and explained that's how the puddings are and there was nothing she could do.
We decided not to have the pudding and asked for the bill, this took 25 minutes to come and the puddings had been left on the bill, after correcting the bill we left deciding not to return again
Also to top it all off the toilets were absolutely disgusting
Big disappointment as we had really been looking forward to it
Thank you Jamilla for ruining our evening
