Very nice upper class tapas restaurant. Service was great very nice warm welcome on a cold wet night.

Food was nice! A couple of things were either abit pricey for what it was or just not quite there. Example the meats board starter was £15 and was expecting a lot more for that price compared to what came.

The fillet steak tapas tasted weirdly more like pork? Think its because this was overcooked and quite bland.

Everything else was lovely and couldn’t complain.

Not too impressed on them adding the service to the bill. You feel abit rude if you ask them to take that off.

Overall a nice meal.

We went for the tasting menu with wine flight and we were not disappointed. All dishes were good with some excellent - shrimp, squid ink croquettes and chicken dishes in particular.
Sherry/wine accompaniments worked well and complemented the dishes. Cocktail a bit too sweet for my taste.
Service very good overall although we asked them to slow down as we felt rushed through the first 2-3 courses and felt as if we were being watched to see when finished.
A good experience. A small restaurant with a good atmosphere.

The restaurant was lovely, very relaxed whilst still classy. Staff were brilliant, attentive and very helpful. We had the taster menu and it was delicious, neither of us had any faults with all 10 courses!
Certainly made a fantastic start to our evening in Manchester!
Highly recommended!

Very surprised by some of the recent reviews......great restaurant with really lovely decor, superb service and very good food. Service was attentive throughout without being fussy and the whole staff worked as a team rather than being territorial about tables. There was a buzz the restaurant without it being noisy. Great wine list. We opted for several dishes off the starter menu; all excellent and the pace of service was spot on. The pigs’ cheeks were ridiculously soft and definitely to be tried. If you enjoy good food in an excellent setting with unobtrusive service, then this restaurant is highly recommended.
