We had a really delicious dinner. Great choice of tapas - both traditional and more modern. Suits the purists and the health conscious. Food was prompt and the service was really friendly. However one gripe... no non alcoholic beer. Why not? They’d have some nice...More

A very charming and warm atmosphere with very helpful and caring staff. Let down with poor meats, steak with a tinge of kidney, sauces lacking depth amongst other things. A real shame as I would like to give this place a better rating!More

Spain is rich in culture and along with Italy has a distinctive cuisine that most can identify with. Our modern Tapas selection includes our favourite dishes we have discovered either over the last couple of decades visiting Spain or from some of our friends in the UK & USA who have made their own versions of classic dishes or come up with something completely new. Enjoy a few dishes each and share with others to make your experience with us a truly Iberian one.
