Very busy Saturday night visit and the restaurant was hectic and loud. However the food was on a different stratosphere of deliciousness. Go Tapas, choose 3 and a cold Cobra with your favourite side totally fabulous

We visited this restaurant on a busy Saturday evening. The service was excellent and the friendly staff served our lovely food quickly. The food was tasty and hot. The house red wine was also very good and it's price was reasonable. We will be back.
