Lovely little spot. Called in with a couple of friends. Good food and wine, very reasonable. The seabass was delicious

You can't prebook a table in advance. Surprisingly spacious. You shouldn't have to wait long for a table. This hugely popular tapas restsurant offers an excellent selection to satisfy all dietary requirements. Great drinks and wine selection.

Food is good and the staff are very friendly, good atmosphere but when busy it can feel a little cramped, very small portions.

This place has THE BEST Sangria! Don't kid yourself by ordering just a glass, order an entire pitcher. You won't be sorry! It's delicious and very very effective ;) I crave it sometimes...no other Sangria compares

Located at 64A South William Street this beautiful and solely candle lit wine cavern has been stripped back to its original features. As a traditional Spanish tapas bar it boasts a fantastic selection of authentic tapas. The Port House wine menu is varied and full of interesting wines, ports and sherries at a very reasonable price, carefully selected from Spanish and Portuguese regions. It is the ideal place for one to relax, enjoy some tapas with a glass of wine and soak up the ambiance that makes this spot a must try.
