It’s next door to the excellent Radio Museum ( hence the name?). A very interesting menu at reasonable prices. A Tapas Bar in Watchet? Why not!

Excellent service, dishes suggested and changed (by chef) to suit vegan, delicious, couldn't have been more attentive. Chef checked to see how we liked it. Service was excellent. Have never had such good service. Booked to go twice and would highly recommend.

This is a family run restaurant. The owner was the chef, her son a waiter. They were very attentive continuously checking that everything was good. The food was perfect and the house wine was excellent. We chose 3 tapas dishes each to share, this was...plenty. We finished with the selection of dessert platter and this was the die for, wonderful. Highly recommended.More

My eyes was bigger than my belly and the portions was massive The food was excellent and you could tell it was homemade. I would highly recommend this place the desserts was delicious and I will definitely be coming here again. If you want homemade...food this is the place to go.

We booked two nights for dinner in advance and so glad we did. This is a popular, busy restaurant with a quirky little open space at the back where we sat. The service was very friendly and the food was amazing. We had a range...of tapas dishes which were all delicious, washed down with beer and wine.More

My partner & I visited on a Friday night and were lucky enough to be squeezed in to a later cancellation slot as we had a nightmare with the traffic down from London and had to cancel our original 6pm booking, very accommodating! This was...my third meal here and as previously the food was absolutely stunning. The staff are warm and friendly and the atmosphere just gorgeous. We did to have to wait over an hour for our food as the kitchen was overwhelmed with a lot of orders at the same time but as we were enjoying ourselves so much we didn't mind, the serving staff were very apologetic and offered us a glass of wine on the house, much appreciated. Will certainly be returning and would definitely recommend.More

Searching for a nice restaurant for a family of 4 while at the nearby haven site we stumbled across the cats whiskers , we tried to call to make a booking for the following evening but the phone was engaged ,disappointed we decided we’d try...again the next day however the fabulous owner called us the next morning to our surprise and we made a booking fir that evening. We took a taxi to the place not knowing what to expect but to our delight the quaint restaurant was better than our expectations, we were early but we’re seated anyway the atmosphere friendly as we were shown our menus ….far too much we wanted but decided on 2/3 tapas dishes each with a sharing board to start , our daughter is 7 and a little on the picky side so the huge variety of dishes really helped to ensure we’d all enjoy our experience. The staff were fabulous the food delicious , I’m quite gutted we live so far away and won’t be regulars at this place. Thankyou for a brilliant evening for our family highly recommended to anyone.More

We managed to book a table for Friday night, this is s busy popular establishment, and I know why. The service was excellent, the people running the restaurant I believe are a family and it felt like you were being welcomed to their home. The...food was great, we have three kids and this was their first proper tapas experience so I was a little hesitant that they would enjoy it, but they certainly did. Our twelve year old twins were particularly fond of the beef steak stew (I concur). For me what stood out was the little things, usually with the Patatas Bravas they would drizzle a spicy sauce, but as the chef knew it was for kids it was placed in a little container on the side !!! Thank you for making our last night in Watchett a special one.More

Wow - what a great place! A hidden gem. Fabulous tapas (the braised beef, the broad beans and peppers and the fish were all fantastic) friendly service and a fantastically quirky interior - we loved it. It's hard to get a table so I recommend...booking.More
