We were four people, ordering some Tapas and a seafood Paella. We waited 11/2 hour for the food, a few very small dishes of some Tapas and then the Paella, which must have been cooked the day before and reheated, the rice was stuck to the Paella pan and completely stodgy and what bits of fish were old and hard...

Our visit was early on a Sunday evening and we were the only diners, so the atmosphere was a bit dull. But the staff were friendly and the Chicken Paella was nice - could have benefited from some Chorizo to give it a bit more flavour, but I guess that's personal taste. Nice enough restaurant - would like to return... More

We had our first visit here on Thursday evening. Great tapas and mains. My only criticism would be plates and dishes that foods delivered on are cold,not heated hence food cools too quickly.

Friendly welcome, fitting us in without a reservation. Food was best Tapas I have ever eaten - my wife agrees - and at reasonable prices. A 'must visit' restaurant.

I can honestly say it is the worst meal I have ever eaten in Brighton.. Frozen tasteless prawns, tuna salad but no tuna and raw chorizo

We have been here a few times. On our last visit we had a couple of their special dishes, one was octopus with potato and the other was prawn omelette which amongst the other tapas dishes were wonderful. Staff are courteous and friendly. We plan to visit on their live music evenings soon .... Ole Ole
