The restaurant standard and quality of food was disappointing. It used to be a favourite of mine but now is just very average. The paella was dry and bland, patas Bravas rather dull and stuffed aubergine undercooked. There are certainly better places to eat, shame it's lost its atmosphere and high food quality.

I went with a friend for a celebratory dinner. It is a nice spot, really nice decor and vibes. We were spoilt for choice on the tapas but the choices we narrowed it down to did not dissapoint. I will definitely be back.

Poor quality food, lots of dishes were served cold/luke warm. Not many of the dishes were tasty , chicken and pork dishes very bland. Were told we had to go next door to the bar if we wanted drinks, pragmatically that sort of thing does not enhance your evening if you are in a group of 14 . IT was... More

Blimey. .The tapas on offer makes your choice very difficult. ..as they all sound great! We were looking at what other tables had got and finally narrowed it down eventually.The portions are plentiful and delicious at a reasonable price. Looking forward to returning.

I have been going here for over 20 years. It was one of the reasons I moved to this side of town. Love the garlic chips and spicy prawns. The dark rose is also a favourite.

Having visited this restaurant twice in the past year - on both visits I thought the food was OK, but in my opinion it is overrated, especially for the price. The staff were friendly. Perhaps this review might read a bit hard, but - I last visited with family on a busy Friday night - we were sat at possibly... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant. I am afraid to say your review does read a little hard. It would be helpful if you could have left a little more constructive feedback. For example you mention nothing about what was wrong with the dishes you had or even which dishes you had and why you felt... More

Nice atmosphere and chilled. I was expecting tapas menu at lunch but the main restaurant was closed and only the brunch menu was available. However, the choices on offer were extensive. I decided on the Bangers and Mash (not sure if that's a brunch or lunch dish)....really good dish with a choice of bangers....go for the pork and leak.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I believe your review is supposed to be the brunch service, served in our sister bar Dos Hermanos, which has its own tripadvisor page. Thank you for the kind review and I will personally pass your thoughts and kind words to the Bar manager. Kind Regards Barceloneta More
