A cosy and lively bar, great food & beers. We had a large selection of dishes, most were mexican style - all very tasty but could have done with more vegetable / light options on the menu for a balanced meal.

Really cosy little Tapas Bar set slightly off of the main market square in Keswick. Great choice of tapas, well cooked and service was great. Food also excellent value. Well worth a visit
