We visited one evening and had a terrific time. The food was very enjoyable, the staff were really helpful and the ambience was great. I'd thoroughly recommend it.

The food here seems incongruent with the setting. It’s a really nice restaurant, nice ambience and decor, friendly staff and good service. But the food is very underwhelming. We had 8 tapas between 3 of us and they ranged from ‘fine’ to ‘not worth eating’....More

Visited here recently upon the recommendation of friends. Totally average. Expectations high but food was average. Mussels-tasteless. Beef- too creamy and lacked flavour.
