Everything was amazing, really helpful staff. Our paella was served a bit cold and when we pointed this out, they went out of their way to provide dessert and a shot of liquor on the house (which was all very tasty!!). Ignoring the temperature aspect, the paella was delicious, not cheaping out on seafood as other restaurants do :)

A nice restaurant very close to Farringdon station. We had the paella with fish. It took about 40 mins which we advised. It was tasty but a large pan came with lovely fish but not really that much rice. It was tasty. Deserts were great we had Churroz with chocolate and rice pudding. Service was excellent.

Our first venture out to a London restaurant for some time. A limited menu, and some dishes not available, of course one of which we chose and then had to rethink. But the food was very good, the Polpo and croquetas deserve a mention. Drinks are somewhat expensive though.

The chops were good, but poor on vegetables - it was to come with green peppers, but i only discovered one small piece!
Sweeteners were not available with the coffee for those not wanting or able to take sugar.

Hola Jeff, Thank you for your review! I am delighted to hear you had a fantastic time with your girlfriend. For next time I will suggest trying our top favourite the croquettes if you consume meat, and if you are vegetarian; I will suggest, our Confit artichoke or the bread with tomatoes. You can never go wrong with these choices. We hope to see you soon! Kindly, Nathaly Cifuentes, Customer Relations Coordinator

Atmosphere was quite sombre. I know COVID makes things more serious but the staff didn’t try to overcome this. Shame - they could have been a bit more friendly or lighthearted. I appreciate though times are hard and tough.

Quality of food is high. No doubt. My issue was the quantities - tiny portions, and no need to be that small. Tapas is meant to be sharing plates but there wasn’t really enough to share between two, never mind 4 which was our group size.. The trout and pickled cauliflower at £13 was the tiniest of all, and the manchego portion very mean too. Thank heavens for the patatas bravas and padron peppers which were a decent size and which we doubled up on as they were reasonably priced and more filling. None of the rice dishes - paella or chicken and rice - were available that night for some reason.

On the plus side the wine was good, room nice, everything felt very Covid safe, and company delightful.

I demolished three quarters of a packet of biscuits when I got home as I was still hungry. Not what you expect to have to do when you’ve been out for ‘dinner’.

The menu changes from a year ago are not great, with many of the most popular dishes removed. As a result the menu doesn’t hang together and lacks flavour.
