This is the best restaurant in Blackheath. The food is excellent, and the atmosphere the staff create is incredible. I can't recommend it enough. Do yourself a favour and try it.

Great service, with a smile. Good ambiance. Smashing food with plenty of choice. A good, smooth Malbec. I would recommend the restaurant to anyone, young or old.

Relaxed laid back atmosphere and simple tapas. Enjoyed the time me and my girlfriend spent together but felt the service was ok, very polite but a little slower than we personally like. The 12.5% discretionary service charge added to the bill is very high considering the food and service was of fair quality. I would typically always pay a tip, but for this place i laid down 5% as a token, didnt warrant any more. Would i go back again? whilst it was nice, there is nothing that really blew us away so i may pop in for a lunch in passing rather than an arranged meal with family or friends. Would i recommend to a friend? As above possibly for a passing lunch, but dont go out of your way for a nice evening meal as i think there are better places for similar budgets.

Over priced for what you get. We had an OK meal theee but most of the food was cold and we sent a fair bit back to get reheated. It always spoils the meal for me if you have to do this then sit around waiting for the rest of your food to come back. The food was tasty and staff polite but I have definitely had tapas elsewhere that I would prefer next time.

The menu has changed and unless you like tapas, the grill menu is now pretty limited. I love the service and the charm but the choices for non-tapas people has me a little disappointed. The music choice also needs updating as it was the same songs playing as last time I was there (3-4 months ago). There was a sign that said “live music Thursdays” but we didn’t see any.

The food was excellent. The staff were very friendly and the ambience and location of the restaurant were great. I went at a quiet time on a Sunday lunch time but I imagine it would get very busy in the evening.

It was good! We booked for a party of seven but they accommodated two extra people with no problem. Food was good, though veggie options limited particularly for main courses. Lovely wine but they had run out of Cava. Friendly service .

Great food, especially the herby mushrooms and the garlic prawns! Great service, with a smile and friendly banter! Great overall experience which I shall tell my friends! I highly recommend the place.
