Omg, the tapas. We went twice while we were in Lennox, and had at least half of the items on the menu, and still can’t pick a favorite. If you twisted my arm, I’d probably go with the wings, because they’re completely perfect. The cocktails...More

Beautiful cocktails, great tapas, and large meals, good service with local hospitality. Just first class, oh beware the music is hot and loud, so maybe no for the romantics but stil after the cocktails who cares. Don’t forget to try the fries (chips), yum!

This place was an amazing surprise! We were holidaying nearby Lennox and were going there many times to eat. This was by far the best! Very simple and honest. We really enjoyed it. The quesadilla we got served was really tasteful and everything that came...More

The food was amazing! Chicken wings and slow cooked pork was a stand out, the seafood was fresh and tasty. The presentation was amazing. Most of it is on the spicier side so order a glass of milk if you have a problem, but I...More
