Booked Dehesa for a birthday and had tasty tapas, combined with luscious wine. The service was attentive but not overbearing and the vibe was relaxed and welcoming. Suitable for all occasions and will be going again.

Creative and well executed tapas - a wonderful combination of inventive dishes and the well-know classics. The ingredients were clearly very fresh and of high quality. The drinks - cocktails, wine, spirits - were a good blend of the usual and some interesting creations. The venue is small, but is intimate and does not feel cramped. They also have outdoor seating. Restrooms were clean. Overall, something to please everyone - novices and foodies alike.

Food was very good, great flavour and good service. We were quite packed in close to the people next to us which meant you felt quite restricted in movement. Would recommend!

We went before the theatre on a saturday night but early on so not so busy. Food was delicious - although plates a bit on the small side for the cost?

It was good. Inside was very noisy. We were seated outside under the heaters which was warm and good. Food was good. Wine could have been better.

First Class!
From the moment we walked in and shown to our table I just knew everything would be brilliant. The staffs advice to selecting wine and menu choices were spot on. The food was quite simply delicious, portions were larger than expected. The food, the staff all were first class. Could not fault a thing.
Thank you to everyone for giving us an evening to remember.

Really enjoyed our evening - our waitress was superb recommending dishes and helping us with our wine choice. Was there on a date and we were lucky enough to get an intimate table for two. The food was amazing and would definitely recommend it to others

We decided whilst in town on Saturday to loom for the nearest Spanish restaurant and this was a 20 minute walk away so we went for it.

We didn't realise before booking that it was the sister restaurant of The Opera Tavern which we already have tried a couple of times and loved.

The food is creative, delicious, well presented. Jamon Iberico de bellota and manchego are always our choice in Spanish restaurant and they were both great here.

We also has the corvette flowers with goats cheese and honey, wow! Along with chicken and octopus dishes. All perfect.

The decor, atmosphere and staff were all great too, very stylish place with excellent and attentive service.

Worth a trip into town for or to break up a day of shopping.

Great little tapas restaurant in heart of soho. Food was delicious - it's not cheap - but you pay for quality. Each dish carefully thought out with amazing flavours. Great service and tasty wine to match. Highly recommend
