The food was very good, we ate tapas. And it was really, really good. Friendly staff. But the tapas dishes could have been smaller.

Nice food and good service at reasonable price! The garlic shrimps where my absolute favorites. The portions are quite big we ordered five for a family of four and that was more than we could eat.

Went with friends and enjoyed an a la carte lunch, and a menu of the day, and can't praise enough. Wonderful choice, excellent presentation and friendly, helpful staff. Thankfully we booked for both occasions as restaurant was very busy.

Stopped off for lunch with my friend. We found this place by chance. I was attracted by the menu of the day. The quality was fantastic and the food was very tasty. Alejandro served us and was friendly and very helpful. Recommend this restaurant and will come again.

Food - when it finally arrived - was great. The only problem was it all came separately. Those who ordered seafood were finished long before the steak order arrived. Shame. I also tried to call in a reservation but the phone never got answered. Eventually we were placed in the back of the restaurant. I'm finding it hard to believe... More

Feels like a place the locals come to and would recommend. Really good food, good variety of tapas, friendly service, small place, few tables outside.
