We had this place recommended to us and a very good recommendation! The food is very good value with 10 tapas dishes for £35 which filled the two of us with side orders of olives, breads, manchego cheese and cerrano ham.

The food is excellent, well prepared and very tasty. Would recommend the fillet steak, the mediterranean vegetables and the seabass with chick peas. The sticky toffee pudding was excellent, however the chocolate mousse was sour and inedible.

The wine was excellent. A standard bottle of Rioja at £15.

The only thing lacking was service. The chef took our order and there was one waitress/barmaid. We were the first in the restaurant and once it started to fill the lack of staff showed.

A great atmosphere with relaxing jazzy tunes in the background, unfortunately ruined by a hen party arriving, would recommend that the place doesn't accept such bookings, but they do have a business to run I suppose.

Overall a great meal. Would thoroughly recommend anyone to go and sample fantastic Spanish cooking in the heart of Kendal.

Dined here just last night, 6 of us for a friends birthday, and wow, what a little gem ! The food was absolutely brill, we only had 10 tapas between 6 of us ( thinking we would order more ) and that was enough, I particularily liked the sweet potato cakes, lush, and the steak, gorgeous ! I had popped in earlier after work, with a cake and candle to ask if they could bring it out for my friend after the meal, absolutely no problem, the staff are great, really attentive and friendly. If I was to grumble about anything it would be the toilets, no loo rolls in the ladies at only 8 o'clock is not quite on, but a quick word to the staff had this sorted, also, the loos are in serious need of an overhaul, which i am assured is going to happen soon.
so overall a great dining experiance and will defoo be back !

Great welcome when first walked in, had the 10 pieces of tapas between 2 of us, well worth it. Food was served in good time and was absolutely gorgeous. Nice big jug of sangria to wash it down with. Excellent meal will definately be back
