The food is ok but overpriced. Slow service and a few customers. In a nutshell: waste of time and money

We stopped here for some food on a Thursday afternoon. Despite the restaurant being empty and every other one being packed within the area, it took the waiter/maitre'd a notable period of time to acknowledge us and bring us menus. That said, he was very friendly and talkative. The other waiter however was not. He actually didn't say anything at... More

Went there to celebrate Valentine's night. Have been several times to the same place which was formerly known as 'Fourneau Iberico', and must have changed of owners and concept. Unfortunately! We had reserved for 8:30pm at the bar (where you eat while having view of the open kitchen) and upon arrival the restaurant was full. They didn't even find our... More

Despite a very friendly welcome the service was terrible. Either the staff were hostile or unavailable - more interested in talking to each other rather then the patrons. The concept is still good 'gourmet tapas' but let down by the quality of the food and the quantities (too much). I feel sorry for the Chef who delivers but the formula... More

Was there recently and have to say the food is really good here. Its lovely to sit at the bar and watch the chefs at work. Head chef is so zen and calm and you can see everything is spotless in the kitchen. Yes the service is relaxed and casual but its a place to stay on and not rush.... More

Came for a business dinner, and it seemed to have all of the makings of a nice place. Modern design, dominated by a large open kitchen, which literaly surrounds you. Nicely decorated and large dishes, plenty of patrons and nice atmosphere. But pretty quick realized first impression was wrong. The large open kitchen allows one to see how the crew... More

Was there twice, once with a large group and once as a party of 2. The wait staff were not able to deal with the large group and the waitress actually got huffy when we did not pay attention and order when she wanted us to. She ignored us for much of the night. Returned another time with just one... More

The service was slow and the food miles away from what you could expect. We could not finish any of the dishes. The iberico bellota ham was actually a less than average jamon serrano, the cheese croquettes were burnt and semelling of worn out oil, the white shrimps were rather black, dry and tasteless. We finished with a beef tenderloin... More

I stopped there for a business lunch. The place is very nice, you can sit a the bar and overlook the open kitchen. The tapa's are excellent. Everything is made to order in front of you. No frozen artificial industrial food. Here the tapa's are a joy for the eyes and the mouth. Pricy but worth every penny of it!
