First time visiter to this tapas restaurant and left impressed. The food was tasty, varied menu and most of the food was gluten free. Waitress also offered gluten free bread as an alternative for me with a choice of toppings, so I could join in with the starters with my colleagues. Reasonably priced. Would recommend.

Came here last night with my husband and we had yet another lovely evening here. Food is fantastic, staff are lovely, and we sat at our favourite table in the window. We come here quite often and it never disappoints.

Office Christmas party, lots of good cheer and beer/wine brought in from down the road (this place has a table licence), and one kind of expects the food to be in smaller portions (and it is a Tapas restaurant) service to be somewhere between rushed and utter pants. Not so here - the service was great, the staff are lovely,... More

Overall - excellent tapas slightly spoilt by loud private party downstairs. Arrived, having booked for 8pm, to find a note on the door re access/entry to the restaurant before 8pm. We didn't know if we could go in yet or not but were told we could so struggled our way through to the stairs and went upstairs to a quieter... More

We go here regularly and it's by far the best place in Brum for tapas. And to make it even more cool - the cocktails there are awesome! It has a great selection of tapas dishes. The albondigas in particular here here are lovely. Go early, have a cocktail first, relax. Then go to your table a bit later and... More

5 of us went here for a friends birthday, not the place to go if you want a quiet night out. Ok, it was a Saturday night but it was disappointing that we couldn't chat as everyone else in the place was shouting. There was a good variety on the menu and the portion sizes were good and prices reasonable.... More

Hello Helen  Thank you for your review . We would like to apologise for this very unfortunate and rare incident that you experienced during your visit. This is not a typical Saturday evening at our establishment.    With hindsight - the disruption one individual caused after drinking excessively prior to arrival - it would have been better to have refused...

We have never had a bad meal here. Staff always friendly. Food always good. Reasonably priced. Sometimes a little chilly so it pays to wrap up warm. Our kids love it too.

This is my new favourite place to come from now on! Visited on Friday evening with 3 friends. Seated in the bar area downstairs and I love the whole relaxed feeling about this place! The cocktails were amazing and the tapas we could not fault any of the dishes! Even though we ordered way too much!! So nice to be... More
