If you are dropping in here out of the rain, you find a cosy interior. Spanish countryside style decor. Have one or two tapas plates (quite pricey) and a glass of wine. Get out as soon as the rain has stopped. We tried to feel...More

A friendly and buzzy atmosphere and pretty popular even fairly late in the evening on a random Wednesday night in April. Faced with a large tapas menu with lots of choice, we went for the mixed vegetable tapas platter (mushrooms, spinach, olives, aubergines) and some...More

Went at the busiest time on a Saturday night, but still got a table for four. Really quirky and engaging restaurant much in demand (people were being turned away by the time we left). We ordered the mixed meat, mixed fish and mixed veg platters,...More
