With jamón ready to carve, padrón peppers roasting over the wood fire & sherry straight from the barrel let us transport you to Andalusia.

Our ever changing menu combines traditional tapas with personal interpretations from Michelin starred Chef Peter Sanchez-Iglesias, whilst staying true to the vibrant and comforting flavours of his heritage.

No tapas bar is worth its salt without a carefully crafted sherry list - just ask Paco! So, we've handpicked ours, and offer them by the glass, bottle or shaken into the finest cocktails.

Thanks to all our amazing suppliers & team we are realising another Sanchez Brothers dream - A modern tapas bar bringing a taste of Andalusia to Bristol. Whether you're coming para picar, for a glass of sherry or a tapas feast we can't wait to see you!

The service was professional and attentive but managed to remain relaxed and helpful. The food as always was superb, combining high quality ingredients cooked with unerring precision.

Thoroughly enjoyable informal, relaxed eating. Inventive menu, well paced service. Very good VFM. If possible, obtain seating at the counter overlooking the kitchen. Bravo!

We opted for the set menu which gave a great selection of dishes. The flavours were really good and the hake, prawns, quail and pork were "melt in the mouth". Even the tomato salad was special! Great bread olives and olive oil to start off and the bread was also used to mop up the juices from other dishes.

Good food, definitely overpriced. Pretentious. Tortilla tasted more like Italian frittatta, not my favourite. Octopus tasted like meat, not worth £17.

A lovely place to have a meal but all seating is on high stools so a little uncomfortable. The food was great but very expensive for what it was, i have had tapas of the same quality for a quarter of the price in Spain and this does sort of miss the point of tapas which is a quick bite in a social setting. I would not recommend the restaurant to others simply because the food is so expensive. However, it had a great atmosphere and the head chef and waiter were very friendly, knowledgable and helpful.

We went for my boyfriend's birthday and had a great time sampling with the tapas menu. The wait staff was helpful in describing the dishes as well as what goes well together, and the items were delivered to us at good times throughout our meal. We also enjoyed a nice sherry that they helped us pick to match our "mains." Will definitely be back again as everything we ate was delicious :)
