Tapas / Small Plates
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 setting, overlooking the harbour was excellent, particulary as we had a table on the terrace, and could watch the sun going down. The service was very good with the waiters & staff being attentive but not overbaring. The menu wasnt massive but had enough choice & variety to satisfy. The only thing we would slightly criticise were the menu prices. ie £19 for 4 king prawns, £12 for a small side dish of leeks, £5 for a half pint of lager. Apart from the prices, the restaurant experience was very good.

    We ate outside and enjoyed the harbourside setting and sunshine. We chose a range of tapas - the quality was excellent, although the prices were pretty steep. Service was friendly and enthusiastic.

    The food was delicious and elegantly served. We ordered bread with olive oil, gordal olives, goat cheese, Monkfish on the Bone, and Lamp Rump. We had a choice between fish and meat, and I would recommend trying the Lamp Rump. However, the portions were a bit small for two people.

    Portions get smaller every time, the tomato salad has shrunk! And no ham due to Brexit?!? Everywhere else seems to have it? Food always excellent but value gets worse every time I go
