Great food and great service! Particularly recommend the prawns, squid, patatas bravas. The service was excellent also and we’ll definitely be returning to sample some more of the dishes.
Regular if infrequent visitor this venue always delivers. Food and service both good and lots of different dishes to try. It is refreshing to visit a restaurant more about the customer than the venue.
Opted for the set menu of all the classics which was decent. Good solid tapas, nice service for a pretty reasonable price. Will go again.
Monday lunchtime so not overly busy therefore service could have been a little more attentive. Food was delicious though so cannot fault that. Muy Bien !
Normally I really rate this restaurant - however the food arrived very slowly and only one dish at a time, so having the patas bravas by itself wasn't great. Also we ordered Chorizo Al Vino which is brilliant but instead got a luke warm Chorizo sausage - Normally though this is a great restaurant.
Some nice dishes, and very quick service, but some of the dishes slightly overpriced and they also messed up with the reductions at the end and we had to send the bill back two to get fixed.times.
The service was slow, the waitress couldn't under stand English. Ordered items were missed and we had to chase for food several times. No offer to replenish drinks. I would not recommend.
