This is one of my favourite places in Byron. I love sharing tapas plates with friends and family and allowing the grandchildren to try different tastes. While the food is not cheap it is worth the prices charged and the wine list is very good. Staff are great.

I'm reading recent reviews on this place which mostly say how expensive it was. When we ate here we didn't find that, but I guess it's just a matter of perspective. It's not cheap, but it's not fine dining prices either. Great little restaurant with a wonderful bar that serves excellent cocktails. we didn't have a booking but were lucky... More

The food here is probably some of the best you'll ever have, but you pay for the privilege. If you're looking for somewhere to celebrate a special occasion, this place will not disappoint.

I wasn't impressed with this place despite all the hype. Service was great, but the food was just disappointing. The oysters for example, came with cucumber foam which overwhelmed the oysters so much that we had to scrap the foam off! Such a shame, as the oysters were so fresh and all it needed for it to shine through was... More

We were walking past when is started raining so we thought we'd go in and have a few drinks and some food - I have to say we were glad it started raining!! The food was really really good, I could have tried everything on the menu. The staff were nice and accommodating, even though they didn't have the space... More

There were three of us, we had to order 5 tapas dishes. They were all great, would especially recommend the black rice. The mocktails were good too. Would recommend you book though, gets pretty packed later at night

Perfect place for a nightcap after dinner - service was great, but the espresso martinis were even better. Great atmosphere and lighting is perfectly dim for romantic rendezvous.

Fantastic food and a great atmosphere. Well balanced flavours. Not sure the tomato bread is true Catalan style by delish nonetheless. The pork and chorizo dish (something like candied pork belly) was amazing

Hadn't booked in advance but were accommodated on the courtyard. ( this is actually 3 tables by the pool of an adjacent apartment complex) Food was very good, tapas dishes a little slow in coming out, seemed to wait until we had finished one before serving the next. However it was busy. We would go again but would suggest booking... More
