Relaxed. Staff very good, friendly and efficient and fun to talk to. Not a great fan of red wine or empanadas but enjoyed the veggie ones very much and a great cheese board.
Good place to go to chill after work, mid week.

I didn't even know that Argentinian tapas existed. It was a very enjoyable experience and the wine list is huge. I would go for a good selection of everything foodwise to give you a good idea of what it is about. Comes recommended.

Friday lunch of cheese and meats with a couple of glasses of red. A little expensive but worth the walk. The pastries looked amazing and wished we had took a selection away with us at the end.

The place is welcoming, with high seats and tall tables at the front (short folk like me find our legs dangling a bit but the seating is very comfy) and more traditional tables and chairs further back.

Bluesy jazz over the sound system – instrumental so not too intrusive – and the service was attentive and friendly.

I had an espresso which was eye-poppingly strong, like the ones you see grizzled old Frenchmen sipping in dark bars in the early hours of the morning. Good to see an accompanying carafe of cool, fresh water arrive at the table without us asking.

op marks for the sweet treats – all freshly made by the team next door using traditional dulce de leche fillings and displayed most attractively.

I’d like to go for an early evening session sometime to try out a glass of wine and one of their charcuterie boards. It’s more of a wine bar than a café, a very pleasant meeting place
