Thanks very much for alerting to the oversight and apologise for the miscommunication on your dish selection. We had changed the menus two weeks ago for the Winter season and somehow this old menu must have been mixed in with the new. We do use...More

Lovely evening dining outside. Party all enjoyed the food. Our waiter took in good spirit the advice of one of our party who had worked many years ago in a restaurant in Spain. Recommend highly for friendly staff and food.

We do like to cater to specific diets where possible with a full vegetarian and vegan menu and can offer gluten free too. We'd love to see you back and enjoy our desserts! !

The Tapas were excellent, have several and share as your main. We had two tapas shared and a main each and it was plenty if not too much. I had a chicken main, it was a little too salty for me, but I had cut...More

Slow service and very poor quality food, felt like Spanish macca's. Nice ambience but overall a really disappointing experience. Only had 3 tapas and then left.
