We got put at the back of the restaurant next to the kitchen despite having booked 2 weeks ago and ordered sangria and some bread and cheese on arrival. 15 mins passed and nothing arrived. We then got asked if we were ready to order and said we had ordered drinks and snacks and were ready to order our mains. We then did that and still no drinks arrived. We then got told the red wine sangria had ran out which at 8pm on a Saturday eve for a tapas restaurant is poor. All of our food including the bread and cheese arrived at the same time leaving us overwhelmed with food.

I booked specially for my bday asked for a quiet 4 table as one of the party has trouble with their hearing. they put us on round table which was meant for 6 so we were far away from each other by the noisy kitchen. We also ordered drinks when we arrived and despite chasing 3 times we only got them after most of our food was eaten! Terrible service and won’t be returning

We had to park on a side street and cross a busy road. The food was okay, nothing special. The service was very good. The food is a bit pricey for what it is. Overall, a pleasant experience, but I don't think I will return.

Could not fault the food, ambiance or service. The waiters were very attentive but not overbearing. Having experienced a tapas restaurant last time we were in Birmingham but weren't overly impressed by it we looked on Trip Advisor & found this one. We were not disappointed & would return when next in Birmingham.

Nice relaxed atmosphere. Staff friendly. Food not bad - good garlic bread and prawns, hake was small (I know it's tapas!), had to wait 10 minutes for our lamb dish which was given to another table. Couldn't taste the Liqor43 in the Chocolate torte which was just chocolate sauce in a sweet pastry case. Will return at some point to try other dishes.

The service was very good and the food was really, really great. Probably the most authentic tapas I have had outside of Spain with some interesting choices. Portions were absolutely right for tapas - the recommended 3 each plus a couple of nibbles and 2 deserts shared between 3 were more than sufficient. The wine is a little on the pricey side with a slightly limited choice of mostly Spanish wines. We had the fizzy, rose Sangria which was just right for the very hot, humid day. The Sunday offer of three tapas for two made it a very reasonably priced meal indeed, but I would still go at the normal price because it was so delicious. They do a great range of paella and fiduea too. We will definitely be going back and hopefully very soon.

It was quiet on a Saturday afternoon, but it was perfect for a date and chat. Staff very helpful and Didn’t keep us waiting for our meals for too long. It’s a shame that the seating area is so close to the road, if it had a garden area then it would be just perfect.

A fun night out with friends. One of our friends is a frequent visitor to Spain and eats tapas widely there - he is a big fan of this place and rates it really highly. Another works in Canary Wharf and says this place matches some of the best in the capital. I've been 3 times and would happily go again. Highly recommended if you like tapas. You'll find something delicious you've never had before, alongside the usual favourites. Well worth a visit.

I have been before and it was fine. However, for mother’s day the food wait was ridiculous we had to remind our waiter that we were waiting for more food to arrive (prawns arrived 45 minutes late and were cold). Maybe it was busy? But that is not an excuse. On top of this my whole party had extremely upset stomachs in the evening and morning afterwards. Will not go again.

Seated promptly and courteously by a lovely lady who explained their approach. The restaurant was packed and there was a live band playing cover tunes - elapsing later into a great (and appropriate) latin vibe. All the dishes were delicious and there were some new tapas dishes (eg dried aubergines) which we'd never eaten before. Wine was fairly priced and overall felt that it represented very good value. Highly recommended.
