    Great service from restaurant staff. The stools at the six seater table were very uncomfortable, we asked to move tables. The food was delicious but portions were small. A little expensive too.

    Excellent tapas. Really great new menu (I was a fan of the old one anyway). Lovely wine, good recommendations from the staff who welcomed us and served us in a timely and friendly manner. Will be back.

    4 of us were out for a meal, Food was all Delicious, but we found some people had their dishes and others were waiting for theirs, not long but it makes it awkward for people do I start or not start, do I wait until all the dishes come out? We had to offer up empty glasses when new drinks came. We were not asked if all was ok with the meal. Enjoyed the evening .

    We obviously caught them on an off day, We turned up for brunch at 10am, It took 15 mins before we placed out order and it was 1040 before we were eating. The bacon had a burnt taste as if the griddle hadn't been cleaned in weeks, the toast had been put on the griddle to acquire mucky marks but wasn't actually toasted, my parnte3rs pancakes were dry and the bacon had the same burnt tastes, and the maple syrup (which had been poured on in advance) was watery. Come on Rioja, pull your socks up! we've had good food here before ant his was meant to be a little treat, unfortunately we left feeling unhappy ( we did receive a discount after bring this to the attention of the manager (who did look like we were being awkward)

    Lovely food off of the new Menu. My Husbands 2 dishes came ot first, I understand things are cooked fresh, but there was a short wait for mine. Would have been better if 1 dish each could have come out. Would definitely return, to try the other dishes available.

    Love this place the breakfast menu is delicious. We came for Mother’s Day brunch. Only lost a star for the uncomfortable seats! We had a baby in our party and our table was too high for her to be in the pram so my fiancé had to eat with her on his knee. It’s a good job she was fed before we arrived because I wouldn’t have been able to breastfeed on the barstool style seats. Otherwise perfect!

    They we’re very accommodating to accept us earlier than we booked however they were very quiet.. it was mainly the food that was the let down very limited menu for tapas and also food was defiantly not fresh… it’s a shame as has great potential but was really not value for money and was one of the first times me and my partner had been out in a long time so just felt let down really
