One of my favourite restaurants in Oxford. Went here for a valentine's meal, had great food, service, and a lovely atmosphere. A bit expensive compared to other Tapas like places, especially for cold veggie dishes. Highly recommended: Aubergine salad, white bait, chicken with lemon, meatballs.

Having been to several greek islands in our lives we were looking forward to reliving the taverna experiences we...More

I went there with a friend on a Friday night for dinner. They asked us to sit in a corner table, practically facing another couple, which was an awkward arrangement. On the back of the restaurant they had at least 5 empty tables. I asked...More

Went with the other half. It was surprisingly empty aside from 3 waiting staff having a loud conversation at the back end. Was trying to order but one of the waiters was quite loud speaking to his colleagues. Not the sort of ambience I would...More
