Slightly 'off the wall' decor and vibe but we loved the food and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Went back on several occasions and always had a great time.

I loved the truffle tortilla, but considering the area thought it was a bit pricey. The deco is very much Nickleback meets South Spain. Overall, loved it even though I felt the price was a bit more than what I expected to pay.

Stopped by for some tapas and a few drinks standing at the bar. Small place with great atmosphere, super friendly service and amazing food. I would highly recommend.

This place is like other bar from the outside but they are specialised in Spanish "croquetas" which is very smart. Well done since they have plenty of refreshing ideas and flavour option :)
