Little gem hidden in Bowness!!
As being Spanish leaving here for over a decade, I really miss the traditional and authentic food from my country but this place have sort that problem because it is home made from scratch Spanish food.
Fresh ingredients, home cooking with family recipes and the taste and quality is second to none.
Great variety of paellas fro different parts of the country, great little tapas and nibbles typical from Spain and all cook there, nothing frozen or bought made.
Sofia was a great host and her customer service is excellent.
A home from Home!!

The only down side is that the restaurant doesn't open for lunch, but from 6pm as it doesn't seem to be very popular for lunch....

Recommended to everyone! We will return many times, favourite place in Bowness

This is a little hidden away from all of the other big restaurants around, but it was definitely worth while eating here. The meal was freshly cooked, me and my partner shared the seafood paella (something i've never had before) and it was absolutely amazing to say the least. Sophia was really lovely too! She chatted to us both, made sure we had everything we needed and she made us feel right at home. Delightful place!

Fantastic Spanish food and wine in very intimate surroundings. All food cooked fresh to order in a lovely family run establishment. Will most certainly be going back.

A warm Spanish welcome and the most amazing genuine Spanish food. Freshly cooked fish and superb wines selected to enhance the experience. This family run restaurant has a wonderful friendly atmosphere.
