Tapas was good. Had to ask for more bread. Paella was delicious. Loved the music and dancing, but honestly too loud. Really made my ears hurt. No water of tables (shouldn’t have to ask for this) and no further drinks offered. Had to wait ages...More

Visited this restaurant with a friend at lunchtime today and was not disappointed. Lovely choice of tapas dishes, and friendly service. Good location being in the lanes. Only slight criticism is the restaurant was so cold!

Limited menu and food was quite disappointing. No mixed paella, choice is either chicken or seafood not both. Some of the tapas were quite small portions. The entertainment was probably the best thing of the evening. Service not that great.

We revisited this restaurant last week early one Saturday evening. We hadn't booked, staff were very accommodating and allocated us a table next to the bar. We had Tapas choices, all seemed warmed up and not as tasty as before perhaps we were too early...More
