Ate here twice while in Brighton this year. First time ordered chef special assortment - absolutely great. Nice variety and enough to eat for two of us. Went back a week later for lunch and was not disappointed. Very friendly staff - very cozy place.

Loved this restaurant. A little bit of Spain - and a realistic bit - here in Brighton. Food was good, wine was good and service was helpful and charming. It is small and cosy and was packed on our mid week visit. Definitely go again.

Enjoy our great selection of authentic Spanish tapas with an Andalusian touch. Choose from classic tapas such as tortilla española or patatas bravas to lesser known dishes such as homemade iberian ham croquettes or braised iberian pork cheeks timbale. We also have a carefully selected Spanish wine list. Many of our wines are imported directly from the producers making them unique in the UK – the prices are very reasonable too. We also offer a wide selection of Spanish-style coffees and thick hot chocolates. You can enjoy your food and drink in our informal restaurant or, if the weather permits, our bustling street terrace or quiet patio. We also import many Spanish products that you can buy directly from our deli shop at great prices. See you soon/Hasta pronto!
