Service was attentive. The restaurant was clean and not very busy at lunchtime. I enjoyed an assortment of tapas - small portions at a reasonable price.

Previously went with friends, took family for a meal as I really enjoyed the food. After trying calamari here for the first time, my daughter absolutely loves it. The atmosphere is lovely too and staff are happy to help.
