Probably the best meal I have ever had. Tapas style with a recommendation that 3 dishes each are ordered. We followed the guidance and amount of food was just right. Food came through at regular intervals with no real gaps and was difficult to pick...More

Lovely food, friendly staff, food freshly prepared, would describe as ‘tapas with a twist’, nice atmosphere, would recommend. Thanks.

Nice buzzy place, friendly helpful staff. Vegan food was extremely good. They alter the dishes from vegetarian to vegan so not on a separate menu. We had 5 different tapas dishes. All very good. Definitely worth the 1 hour drive.More

“The sun is always rising somewhere in the world” A team of chefs who have drawn their inspiration from their travels and memories serve up their recollection of global street food and sharing dishes. We bring these creations back to our home and recreate them here for you – hoping to take you on a journey of flavour and excitement. Our food is essentially served in what you may refer to as ‘tapas’- choose about 3 dishes each and we will send them to the table as and when each of them is ready. We would recommend you choose 1 dish from each the ‘LAND’, ‘EARTH’ and ‘SEA’ – It’s all about sharing and having a little taste of everything in a social environment with your friends or family.
