We came here about a month ago and had a really nice evening, tried to go again a few weeks later and found the place had shut down...a pity.

I've eaten here on previous occasions and always enjoyed the food. I don't know why it was so poor this time. There were less options on the menu and a few things weren't available, leaving limited choice, there was only one waitress rushed off her feet. The food tasted like it had been reheated and lacked flavour. Sadly I won't... More

Terrible food served. 3 things on the menu weren't available. When our food was brought out it was cold and tasted dreadful. Waitress also forgot to serve the drinks we asked for. Avoid at all cost. 😡

Absolutely delightful. True Spanish flavour and ambience. Staff superb. I shouldn't advertise its existence, just keep it relatively secret compared with its better-known neighbours! Treasure it. And consider the price as a treat for yourself!

Service was abrupt. Waitress was Close to rude. Using responses such as "what?" When repeating a menu request. Food was mediocre. The menu variety was average at best and uninspiring. The food itself was mildly warm. And they know how to charge too. Definitely wouldn't ever go to the restaurant again.

Went with wife for pre show dinner. Had been before and thought was excellent but this time round felt as if the staff didn't know what they were doing. In the end got charged £60 for 4 plates of tapas and a bottle of sangria. Think I got charged for someone else's meal. I should have checked but had show... More

Good tapas, reasonable prices, great wine! Enjoyed it, although I can see why some criticise, I had a very good meal.

We went to this restaurant having spotted it before, however it was dead. No wonder the food wasn't that good at all. The wine & sangria were great, hence why I have given 2 stars. The meatballs came out in under a minute after ordering! Along with a hair in one of them! The potatoes brava were basic with same... More

Thanks for your feedback and are sorry to hear you weren't satisfied with the quality of our food. However, we find it rather offensive and defamatory to call our restaurant a microwave Spanish restaurant, when we would like to stress that we use freshly ingredients, many of them delivered daily to our premises and ALL food is prepared freshly on...
