    I had been dying to try this restaurant, so we went for our anniversary. I was not disappointed!! The food was amazing. Loved the tapas, really tasty, and lots of it. The staff were so friendly and welcoming. Helped us choose a lovely wine. I can’t recommend highly enough. Our waitress Kelly was lovely. I cannot wait to go back to try some other dishes. Thank you everyone for making our evening so lovely xXx

    The food was lovely. The service was friendly but slightly slow. Our plates were taken but were weren’t asked if we wanted anything else, such as dessert, another drink or the bill, and we were left until we called a waitress over to get the bill. It was also confusing when at the upstairs bar as we were told we could go up and order drinks, but there was no one behind the bar, and there was a sign saying the bar was closed! We had to go back downstairs and order drinks for them to be brought upstairs. Someone would then come upstairs every now and then to see if anyone wanted a drink. The music was also far too loud in the restaurant. It would have been fine if it was a bar environment, however, it was hard to have a conversation over dinner as the music was too loud for a restaurant environment. You need to be able to hear the person you are at dinner with! Overall it was nice and I would go back

    We were sat at a table near the door, although there was a sign asking for the door to be closed it was left open on several occasions. Because of the chilly evening I had to get up to shut it, so in future I would ask not to be sat near the opening , otherwise good and service very good.

    The food and service here were outstanding. Delicious tapas and really welcoming friendly staff. The only little niggle was our first choice of both wine and beer from the menu were unavailable, but the alternatives selected were very good so not a spoiler by any means. Would highly recommend it!

    Management let it down not training ppl properly. Pinacolada shouldn't be served in half or pint glasses! Lumps of concrete outside the front doors, doors broken, selotaped table numbers to edges of tables, music way too loud for only 5 ppl in restaurant, management turning up in sofa clothes and not taking coat off, food was good tho.

    Lovely food, great portions. The waitress who served us was lovely and worked quickly under the busy circumstances of the restaurant. The only negative was noise of music and having the tables very close together meant the noise of people around us was heightened, but this is personal preference.

    Superb service, seated quickly with menus, drinks ordered taken within a few minutes but we weren’t rushed at all. Had prawn cocktail which is a bit of an odd tapas item but it is huge, try it. My partner had a cold fish salad that he said was great as well. To be honest by time the mains (a single tapas again, mine with fries) arrived we were full up but we ate a bit of it and took the rest away. Total cost was around £20 each including drinks!! 4th or 5th time we’ve been there and have never been disappointed

    Hello. We found that it was quiet, for a Sunday lunchtime. We have been here once before and this place had such a lovely ambience at that time that we wanted to return when we could. We were expected to be offered Paella, which we weren’t(we read this on the website that Sunday was a special day for this) but what we did get was okay. It was a celebration for our 40th Wedding Anniversary so we wanted somewhere special. It was just okay and at £150.00p wasn’t as special as we would have liked!

    Food was amazing. We had tapas and the dishes were a great size, and the sangria was the best I have ever had, and was on special offer at £15 a jug. Great value! Our waitress, Kerry was perfect, very helpful and friendly, would ask for her to serve us next time we go! Will be back very soon!

    Our first time for a quick birthdaay celebration. Shame the first impression was a broken automatic door. But, was met and had a choice of tables, we ended up being the only people eating. We ordered various Tapas, which arrived to the table in stages, which helped, all dishes were very tasty and plentiful. The staff were excellent and attentive. Overall very good and a return visit in the summer to try upstairs is already on the cards.

    We came for a meal in November and it was fantastic great food and service was really good we were really looked after. We came again in March and the food wasn't great and food was missed so people were eating a different times. When the bill came we were given 3 different prices. People paid over the top for a tip and they said that we still owed money. I came in the other night with my daughter just to see if it was a one off and it wasn't. We had tapas and it was poor quality definitely wasn't fresh, octopus was so tough and most items looked like they had the life fried out of them.

    I thought the food was awful. The quality was like that of an all inclusive Buffett in Benidorm. The staff were more interested in chatting than checking on their customers. We had to wait ages to catch someone’s attention to get our bill. Will not be returning…. Shame as the ambience of the place is pleasant!

    Disappointed with the consistency of the food provided, some dishes were spectacular (albeit they were the most straightforward) and some were just missing the mark, not enough seasoning or in the case of the pork tapas it was far too sweet without any salt or other flavours to balance it out. The same thing with the drinks, the mango mojito was DIVINE absolutely would get this again but the margarita was very poorly done and served in a gin glass. The wait staff were okay, very quiet, they didn’t help us much it seemed like they were in a rush to get us over and done with, they didn’t check once or ask if we wanted further drinks etc. Also upon paying the young girl didn’t ask if we wanted to add a tip and just told me the machine was ready making it awkward to broach the subject, subsequently causing the staff to not get one. Overall the place would have been fantastic but the style needs refining to be a top tier restaurant.

    Food was lovely, and served quite quickly. Music was a bit too loud for my liking, but for most of the meal we were the only ones in the restaurant so I feel this was to create a bit of atmosphere. Good service and would definitely go again!
