This place offers great food, we have been a number of times and we have always had a very good meal. The tapas portions are generally larger than usual, and some of the dishes do come with a side salad or some potatoes which isn't described, so the first few times it can be a little difficult not to order...

Really clean. The tapas is great and reasonably priced. Staff are friendly and can't do enough for you. Breakfast is gorgeous and is all organic. The host,... More
