I would say its a little over priced but you get what you pay for and you did.

We had 3 dishes for £20 on the lunch menu and whilst we were told they were small plates we were full as we left. We had Chorizo with Octopus, pork belly, prawns and beef cheeks. All were excellent. A relaxed and classy restaurant and bar with friendly staff. The crema catalana is delicious. A real surprise find this place and we have booked for dinner next week after some Christmas Shopping.

Wasn’t a great atmosphere considering it was lunch hour. The food was expensive for what it was. Although the taste was spot on, and staff who served us was attentive. We were rushed off our table after 1.5hrs, to go to the bar when we haven’t finished eating, to make room for the next booking yet there was plenty of oyher tables elsewhere. Felt rushed and spoiled the experience. They charged us a service charge which I did not pay because I didn’t feel it was worth it. Won’t be coming back.

For this restaurant to be described as “Exclsve” is a mockery as the reality is nothing of the sort. We were advised to order 6 small plates to share between us in order to maximise our experience which came to a total in excess of £80. Our entire order was subpar at best, two scallops for £12 and a crumb of monkfish for £10 was wholly ridiculous. The lamb cutlet, for which we were provided butter knives to cut, was miraculously with us in mere minutes (surely too quick to prepare from scratch). The chips were sadly the highlight of the meal - which says a lot - and the bravas sauce provided with them was watery and lacked any of the traditional madrileños spirit, suggesting that the restaurant was attempting to preserve ingredients. The salt cod fritters were bland and contained carcass (BONES !) much to our displeasure and to top it off the two cocktails, for a combined total of £21, were poor impressions of the real thing. No alcohol could be tasted. Additionally, the atmosphere of the restaurant was very awkward, with the staff skulking around almost as if in anticipation of complaints. It is always a telling sign when a restaurant is empty on a Friday evening, one of which we will take into consideration in future. It felt like every customer had been positioned strategically to fill out one part of the restaurant. We gave it a chance on the basis that it is a new restaurant. My partner and I were extremely disappointed with what we expected would be a high quality, fine dining experience owing to the price point. We promptly asked for the bill before the waitress could utter the word “dessert?”, the only reason we proceeded with said bill was because it felt humiliating to even mention what the staff evidently already know to be true. I can’t begin to imagine who wrote the reviews for this restaurant. Rest assured we will not be returning anytime soon !

All dishes came at once which I think is a mistake at a Tapas style restaurant - if I went again I would order as I went.

They are small plates so you’ll need a few as they are relatively small. It’s a small menu too, however it was delicious and the quality was 100%. The staff were fabulous, very attentive and helpful. Chris the manager was great. He took the time to come and introduce himself. All staff were lovely and we will definitely return soon.

Cocktails were great and the bar staff were very knowledgeable and helpful with decisions. The only slight downside was the ambience, the decor is really nice but it still didn’t feel cosy enough. Toilets were cool.

We are a brand new restaurant are slowly developing our presence here in Manchester, so unfortunately it was a little on the quieter side during your visit. Our ingredients are very high quality which reflects in the price, but we take on board what you have said regarding the bill. If you were willing to give us another chance, ask for our manager Chris, he will ensure you are well looked after. Have a great week. =

Love the small plate concept as we got to try 5 dishes and they were all amazing. Really convenient spot on Bridge Street and nice staff too. Will be visiting again!!

The food was unbelievable and the small plates where perfectly sized and presented to have a few, the beef cheeks melted in your mouth and the pork belly was the best I have ever tasted. My wife drank the cocktails and the Pornstar Martini with its twist is the best she has had. Beautiful venue and service from staff on point
