lovely place to have a very 'southern Spanish' meal - excellent options for tapas, all delicious and well priced. Good drinks menu, reasonably prices. Helpful, happy service. Chairs and tables a bit small and low so bear in mind if this might be an issue...More

This place is a magnificent oasis in Oxford. Very different from any other place I have experienced in Oxford ( or perhaps even in the UK). More than the atmospherics of the place, the vibe and the food- it’s this unique gentleman called Fabio (and...More

A very good place to spend a different evening with the taste of the mediterranean cuisine followed by quite good wine. Quite friendly staff who reccomended the dishes.

Beautiful spot in the summer, when on a clear night they will roll the roof back. Good cocktails and a good, tasty menu. The only drawback is that it's not big enough! Would definitely recommend! They also own cafe coco next door which is pretty...More

Fantastic eats - must try the Paella and the lamb. Very festive, great drinks, music and piazza style dining. Everything we ate was fabulous but the pork cheeks were scrumptious. 1/2 price tapas Sun-Thurs 5-6:30, you will not regret this choice.

"Recommended as one of the best tapas bars in Britain" (The Observer) and it's not hard to see why. Step through the door into a place somewhere between Seville and Marrakesh, and lose yourself. The attention to detail from decor to menu is outstanding! Jerez by the glass, plates of Jamon Iberico and Manchego cheese, and that's just to start you off. Don't miss this gem of Oxford
