    Food and service was simply ok, certainly not worth the premium price. Female toilets were out of order but we were not advised of this. They suggested we used the male toilets which were extremely dirty and smelled awful.

    Very average flavours that don't reflect any of the traditional authentic Spanish food. I am open to experiments with food and modern twists. I am not open to creating a bland recipe with mixes that don't bring out the best of the main ingredient. I am a Spanish national and I know good Spanish food. I had the pulpo with lentils and chimichurri thinking it'd be a great combination of flavours however, the flavours were literally non-existent. It was tasteless and bland. My partner and I had been looking forward to it all day as the many sounds so good on paper, and it was very disappointing and unfortunately, very expensive for what it is.

    Great food - octopus a standout dish. Good service including preparing an appetiser at the table. Very quiet but perhaps understandable given lunch time during Easter.

    The food, such as it was, was delicious and arrived promptly - we had ordered a "big plate" seafood paella, which certainly was not a big plate and could not possibly fill two adults, being mostly made up of rice with the odd bit of seafood, in a very shallow dish. For this, we paid £94 with an additional 12.5% service charge on top, following a conversation with the manager to set out our concerns around value for money. Nothing was deducted from the bill. The service was good but nothing special; the value for money was appalling.

    The vibe is good the food is decent. One of the managers is not the most friendliest. Probably won’t go back.

    One of the best dining experiences I've ever had in London. The Maître d' was incredibly attentive, his staff we polite and efficient, the ambiance was perfect and the food was some of the most delicious I've tasted in my life. Could not recommend high enough.

    Really disappointed restaurant. They claimed offering Spanish food but only use it for calling the dishes. There’s no Spanish flavor at all. Even on the Pata negra Jamón. It was dried and tasteless. There’s not a single Spanish person on the front that even can explain the dishes correctly.
