    Disappointing lunch: ordered pasta vongole. It came with noodles rather than pasta?? Had to ask for a spoon to help with noodles, had to ask for butter to go with daughters artisan bread starter. Main course stone baked margarita pizza was covered in cheap plastic cheese (not authentic at all).

    Speedy service but not rushed. Delicious food. Lovely waiting staff very efficient. We had 3 courses. Shared starter. Enchiladas and Fajitas with tasty additions, rice, beans. Beautiful meringues. 'Healthy option' with berries so you don't feel too guilty. Or try the salted caramel one if you just dont care. Delicious!!

    We’re regulars here and - from memory - we’ve never had a bad meal or poor service. The menu’s pretty accessible and I’d say that there are enough different options without it being bewildering. Nice selection of wines.

    This restaurant has a great nostalgic ambience. There is lots to see and takes you back in time. The seating is very private as there are little walls between them. The food was really good and there is a large variety on the menu, also for vegans and vegetarians. The service was excellent, we were helped quickly and the staff was really nice. The price is okay but sometimes a bit on the high side but understandable in these times after the pandemic into the brexit and the war going on. This makes having a business a little bit more difficult. We will be back for sure as we loved it. One tip you need to book way in advance as they are fully booked weeks in advance.

    Favourite restaurant. Warm atmosphere, friendly service and always know we will have a delicious meal ever time we visit. We love the addition of the partitions between tables to keep everyone safe. Paco himself went out of his way to ensure we had seats which made us feel safe during our recent visit.

    So glad we booked ahead , even at 5 pm the place got busier & busier there’s no way we could have walked in & got a table for 4 ! Excellent service , excellent food & size of portions . We started off with a sharing platter for 2 though there were 4 of us it was more than enough … sea bass , steak fajitas , pizza & chicken Caesar salad. Beers & a glass of rosez . Everthing was lovely the fajitas got the overall top choice , my pizza looked like it had been sitting waiting for me … not hot & hard to cut … but we will be back again . Re b as ckground noise level it was soo noisy it was hard to hear each other’s chat !

    We - a party of three - were very dissapointed by our meal. Two dishes of Crispy Chicken with Garlic Butter filling were not as advertised. There was no crisp outer but merely chicken roasted as was. Very dry in one case and strnigy in the other. Baby roast potatoes were sliced sauteed potatoes of questionable age and quality. Service was a bit slow but staff very nice. A great location unfortunately spoiled by the food on this occassion.

    Such a warm welcome the second we got through the door, right through service up until we left. The food was delicious and we couldn't fault a thing! The menu had plenty to choose from, including a vegan section. The staff were very efficient and helpful. Value for money was exactly right. The ambience was relaxed, music playing, but not too loud and although the restaurant was busy, we felt like we were having a private meal, as the tables were well divided, yet a cosy atmosphere. 100% coming back again and bringing family. 10/10 👏

    We had such a brilliant experience! Food was delicious and arrived quickly. One of our group is gluten intolerant and staff were amazing and her food was delicious and she had plenty of options to choose from! Another of our group came later on in the night and our server made sure that she got her food quickly so she could eat with us! Couldn't recommend more.
