Spending a weekend in Wolverhampton and looking for a reasonable Saturday night meal. Trusting Tripadvisor as always, we telephoned for a short notice booking. Delighted they squeezed us in. Excellent range of Tapas which they were more than happy to adjust to meet dietary requirements....More

We had a lovely evening here on Friday. The hosts are very welcoming and the 5 tapas offer was more than sufficient for 2 people. It was great to see the place so well supported as every table was taken whilst we were there. Contrary...More

The whole experience -- once again -- was faultless. 🎉 I took my dad, whose standards are pretty high, and not only did he have trouble choosing from what was an extensive menu, he loved all of the dishes presented. The desserts were also unmissable...More

The 5 tapas dishes for £25 is quite good value. At just 12.50 per person, it is quite a lot of food. 4 tapas dishes would definitely have sufficed though and would have been cheaper. The fact that you are allowed to bring your own...More

Really nice people and good service, unfortunately really poor food. Tasteless tapas, with very poor presentation. Calamari was not fresh, like squid flavoured onion rings from frozen, not good. Quesadilla wedges were tortillas filled with sliced ham out of a packet. Average, at best. Chicken...More

A real gem in the heart of a failing city. Wolverhampton unfortunately has very little to offer. This is in my opinion the best food in the town. Well done and thank you all.
