Was there recently and have to say the food is really good here. Its lovely to sit at the bar and watch the chefs at work. Head chef is so zen and calm and you can see everything is spotless in the kitchen. Yes the service is relaxed and casual but its a place to stay on and not rush.... More

Came for a business dinner, and it seemed to have all of the makings of a nice place. Modern design, dominated by a large open kitchen, which literaly surrounds you. Nicely decorated and large dishes, plenty of patrons and nice atmosphere. But pretty quick realized first impression was wrong. The large open kitchen allows one to see how the crew... More

Was there twice, once with a large group and once as a party of 2. The wait staff were not able to deal with the large group and the waitress actually got huffy when we did not pay attention and order when she wanted us to. She ignored us for much of the night. Returned another time with just one... More

The service was slow and the food miles away from what you could expect. We could not finish any of the dishes. The iberico bellota ham was actually a less than average jamon serrano, the cheese croquettes were burnt and semelling of worn out oil, the white shrimps were rather black, dry and tasteless. We finished with a beef tenderloin... More

I stopped there for a business lunch. The place is very nice, you can sit a the bar and overlook the open kitchen. The tapa's are excellent. Everything is made to order in front of you. No frozen artificial industrial food. Here the tapa's are a joy for the eyes and the mouth. Pricy but worth every penny of it!

Poor all round. The beers listed weren't available. Then when our tapas started arriving we were served two portions when only one was ordered. Service was very slow despite it being early evening and nearly empty. No apology was offered when we decided to cut our losses and abandon the place, and we were billed €30 for two beers, a...

Been there many times, food is always delicious. But had few issues with the service. Few month ago when I was there, we were four. Two wanted have menu other two wanted to pick from the list. Waiter and the owner refused it because it would make the service too complicated. I was there few days ago with my friends... More

Wonderful food. Try the oysters and jamon. We tried 6 different tapas and two desserts and loved all of them. The new owner is very nice and welcoming, as is his staff. Also, great Spanish rosé wine!

The idea of tapas is to share. When they have soup for tapas and all the dishes are for one person then you don't call them tapas. Average food very expensive for what they offer and for sure not a Spanish restaurant
