Following a recommendation, travelled to Moseley to try this tapas restaurant. Brilliant food and lovely vibrant place, like the sort you find in European capitals. Unlike others who have reviewed, we found the service attentive and quick. We will be back.

La Plancha is in Moseley, which is 10-15 minutes taxi ride from New Street, and is on the 50 bus route which runs regularly and late into the night. We hope to see you soon!
