    It was really cold in the restaurant but not helped by arriving soaking wet following a sharp rain shower.

    We easily changed the time we booked our table and the venue knew the updated times when we arrived. The drinks and food were just superb. We ordered two tapas items - Bread with tomato & garlic and mushrooms with garlic. Both were plentiful and excellent. For our "mains" we had Patatas Bravas, Cod goujons, gambas pil pil and spanish omelette. I must say they were all cooked to perfection and we couldn't finish all the food! The service was superb but not overpowering. The venue was quite busy around 7 pm when we wanted to leave - there was no waiting for the bill - will be back. The total bill including rose cava, two large glasses of Pinot blush and a few large glasses of Rioja was £85. Great value for the food, drinks and the venue.
