“Great Food, Exceptional Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

Dined here for a Sunday brunch recently. The service was faultless with our waitress making us feel very much at home and was very helpful with her suggestions and knowledge of the menu.

We had a number of dishes including Chorizo in Cider, Chicken Wings, Patatas Bravas and a wonderful plate of Spanish meats and cheese. All were very well flavoured and presented in a typical Spanish way.

We washed this down with a couple of glasses of the house white which was lovely and reminded me a long summer evenings on the Andalusia coast.

In summary a very nice experience and somewhere I will return to in the future.

“Beautiful Restaurant. Delicious Food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2012

My wife and I visited this restaurant last week. It is a beautiful candlelit restaurant with nooks and crannies and exposed brick with two log burning fires.There are amazing views over the old Abbey and the Harbour with a bird's eye view of Ireland's Eye. The menu was extensive and exclusively Spanish tapas. We had the stuffed mushrooms, chicken wings, pork, and gambas pil pil - all were delicious. The prices were really cheap. There was a Spanish dancer called Marina and she was sensational. The place was packed and they were turning people away. We wanted to try the paella but it took 45 minutes to cook. Service was super with really friendly bubbly staff. Worst thing - no parking. Best thing - very tasty food and great atmosphere. Highly recommend.
