The food was excellent and not too expensive. However it was pretty cold in there, everyone had to wear a jacket. The menu was a bit confusing: what is tapas - what is a main course?

I had the olives to start and vegan paella as a main, both were excellent. The portion of the paella was extremely generous and also reasonably priced. I can't fault the front of house staff, they were attentive and friendly.
