Booked this restaurant for a birthday treat and it exceeded our expectations, the restaurant is like an underground vault with a very modern setting, the food was delicious and the staff attentive and friendly. Not over priced either! Great find and would definitely recommend.

We arrived late evening. Seated immediately. Service was prompt and efficient. The food we ordered was perfect. Well presented and unbelievable flavours. The setting was very romantic and we totally enjoyed our night.

Lovely meal, hidden gem! Wouldn't have found this place if it wasn't for TripAdvisor reviews as it was underground. Near to the abbey. Lovely tapas! Good cocktails!

Hi Isabel, it's very busy most days. Very very popular. I hope you have a lovely visit.
From the photos the tables look like they might be a little cramped,...does it feel like your too close to other couples? Looking for valentines? TIA

Hello, sorry for the late reply I have been on holiday! I'm really not sure I'm afraid, as I'm not a vegetarian I wouldn't have paid much attention to the options. Maybe you could have a look at the menu online? Or email the... More
