If you want tapas this place is fantastic. Selection wonderful and every dish delicious. Lovely inside. Ambiance very casual and comfortable. Tables at front very cosy (although maybe not on wait staff-traffic route so you need to reach around bar sometimes to get service). But staff delightful and helpful

We (4 adults) had a range of dishes, quality varied enormously between really tasty (e.g. figs wrapped in bacon) and horrible (aioli in one dish was clearly made with ready-made mayonnaise). Having just been in Barcelona for a week the food here couldn't compare to the original stuff, but taken the location the prices are OK. The place is not... More

The food was fine. We ordered a lot (the waitress remarked about how much we ordered...don't judge us!). Nothing amazing but a good classic tapas option in Oxford.

Very nice place for tapas. I have been with work and family and we loved it. Even though it is a bit pricey, food is very nice. You get the Spanish taste.

I wasn't expecting such delicious tapas! Good portion size and very tasty indeed. To drink we ordered a sangria jug, one of the best I have ever had! The desserts were okay...shame they don't serve churros with chocolate. Good service as well. Will be going back!

Tired after tramping around Oxford, we settled in here. A great selection of food and wines - chicken in beer and the lamb skewers were particular favourites.

The octopus tapas were very nice but with coarse salt all over them. Chorizo tapas were also nice but swimming in fat and very salty too. Other tapas were fine and very nice, it depends on the choice of tapas.

The only restaurant in Oxford that is able to capture the essence os Spanish tappas. Very tasty for an affordable price. We stay in a tablet that was too small for all the dishes but everything else made up for this situation. See you soon
