We had visited this restaurant a few times and we were always happy with the service. However yesterday the service was poor. Food was delayed and we never got the second drink we ordered. Extra staff was definitely needed.

An absolutely superb lunch on 5th June at the Deptford branch.
Very helpful staff.
Each dish (and we had quite a few) was excellent. The octopus was super, as was the salt cod croquettes.
Faultless.
Highly recommended, and will go again.

Love this place, food is delicious. It's not a huge menu but there are vege options. What they do, they do really well! Most of the seating is outside and the heaters are not huge, so wrap up if it's cold. Service is always really great. I've been several times now and can't fault it.

Absolutely loved this place! Amazing menu, wine and friendly service. It has a really cool vibe and when it rained they rushed around covering the area! Everyone in the restaurant was friendly too. I want to drink more of the wine!! The food felt very authentic - the octopus was so tender. Can’t fault this place. Will definitely attend again.

Excellent food. The ambiance is great. If you are lucky enough to enjoy a sunny day, sitting outside is a joy. Service is great, the team is happy to answer questions and help you with the menu.

Lovely spot, very atmospheric. The same price as Iberica (Restaurant), which is luxurious and decadent - so I would say that it's not great value for money compared to Iberica. Also, most of the tapas mains were a British fusion/ interpretation; we enjoy as authentic as possible. The portions were also quite small. I wouldn't revisit, but a good experience overall.

Great service and food; given that we were sat outside in a wind storm we still had a lovely evening - my only
Negative Comment is the 90 minute booking for 2 people and the chorizo sausage tasted more like a Frankfurt. But I look forward to returning.

We ordered some tapas: sour dough bread, octopus and chorizo with one of the full bodied bottles from Navarra. Tasty choices, I wish squid would be slightly softer though. Outside sitting was under umbrella which covered us from occasional rains and they have heaters too.
