    We were there early and other people were just arriving as we were leaving, so hard to gauge ambience and noise levels effectively. The drinks were lovely, and food was good but could have been hotter.

    The servers are all brilliant and friendly. Cocktails are delicious and the food is incredible (small dishes that you can mix and match). Drinks-wise I would highly recommend the Piña Colada and Bubblegum Blue. As for food the new beetroot dish (pretty sure it was arancini) and the beef brisket were to die for!

    Excellent service, tasty dishes but the only issue is most of the tapas options are for Vegans. It’s a shame there aren’t more seafood and vegetarian options.
