No atmosphere at all...

Fillet was overdone, and tough. Other steaks nice enough, but nothing special. Salads were dull. For a 'sharing' steak platter the portions of chips and salad were really rather mean. Very overpriced for something very ordinary.

The Argentinian waitress & her cousin were absolute sweethearts. So nice in fact that I returned the Malvinas.

The food was ok, the calamari was frozen & rank

This place is great! Atmosphere is chill and cool and the staff really friendly. The steak was cooked perfectly and was delicious. Really enjoyed the chocolate cake for dessert. I would say to add more rum options on the drink list. Great first time and will visit again.

Food was fine but through no fault of theirs, the restaurant was dead and there was no ambience. Music was very questionable but they did change it when asked. Choice of desserts non existent and wine list sparse, but food was nice and service quick and pleasant

We ate early on Friday (5.30pm) so not unreasonably it was quiet then. When we left after 7pm the atmosphere was lively and the restaurant was filling up.
Great mix of tapas food and service.
See you again soon we hope

Nice food but a bit pricey.

Only deals on steak platters and not tapas

Too much ice in the sangria not value for money

It was a really nice restaurant and location. Service wasn’t great at times and we were placed on the top floor way above everyone else and the main restaurant so it was deserted. However they did the very best they could and seated us an hour before our actual booking.

The tapas and rose wine were outstanding! And I loved the steak salad- definitely get it. The place was busy and not many staff were on but despite this they were efficient, polite and friendly. I would definitely recommend this place and it’s suitable for groups or couples.

We went on the extended Eat out to help out. The steak was lovely but only came with one side so either chips OR salad which I felt was not good value. The chips were poor quality kebab shop type ones. There was a large group blatantly altogether split across two tables with a small gap between, one of whom was coughing a lot and kept wandering around to go outside for a cigarette. Service was good. Would not return without the deal as despite lovely steak would be too expensive for me and sadly not covid safe. Whilst much of the problem lies with customers not playing by the rules, the restaurant could have done more.

Wonderful steaks, we had the platter with various steak types. Perfectly cooked, we like medium rare and they were all cooked to perfection. Only down point was no draught beers/lager, but that was probably due C19.
