Excellent food and service. We opted for the classico tapas menu with a couple of additions. More than enough for the four of us. Really good value would recommend

Absolutely delicious food and such a wide selection too. The staff couldn't have been more accommodating and friendly. Always on hand to make suggestions with the wines without being pushy and definitely know their menu. Can't wait for my next visit

We visited mid evening mid week. The restaurant was almost empty, so there was little atmosphere. I guess it is busier during or immediately after office hours. The food was fair quality and plentiful and was delivered quickly. The staff were very friendly and helpful, spending time to talk to us, both about the weather and general chat.

Great food and quick service. When we asked a few questions of the waitress, she didn't seem overly interested in her job. I would come back for the food, but the seats were not comfortable at all.

Still a classic tapas bar. Food excellent, staff likewise. Always a nice treat to go there. No more to add so I won’t add more.
