    Great welcoming and great food. We had some questions about the wine list and we had a sommelier quickly at our table to help us out with it. Highly recommended

    Trendy restaurant with Spanish modern tapas-style menu. Some great dishes, particularly the lamb shoulder and octopus (although a little salty). Desserts were also very good. Didn't samples the wines, so can't comment there, but definitely worth a look and will revisit in future.

    Such a surprise, why haven't we found this restaurant before? Lovely atmosphere, superb, friendly staff and excellent quality food. We will return with friends so we are able to share more dishes.

    The service was excellent. The lamb was very tasty but it was disappointing to get cold broccoli. It should be mentioned on the menu that the dish is cold.. Also the a/c is a little too cold for my liking. Overall however a very pleasant evening

    The restaurant accommodated me adding extra people to the booking twice. They were very helpful with my nut allergy and once again the food was amazing. They have an amazing selection of wine and the service was fabulous.

    Food and service are excellent! We went to celebrate my friend’s birthday and got a great service from waitress - I forgot to ask her name but she is tall and has curly hair. Also the food is yummy. I will definitely go back again. Highly recommend the restaurant to anyone.

    Wonderful meal, very friendly service. If it's your first time visiting, do get them to explain how they recommend to order, as certain parts of the menu they bring out at different times and the dishes are meant to be shared on the table

    The food is above average but unfortunately the staff and their lack of service can ruin the experience. They don’t listen to the order properly and bring food out at times that don’t make sense. We had to literally wave our arms about for their attention even though the room was only half full and they weren’t doing anything- this was to make our first order and every other request after that.

    Love the extensive wine list. The somm was helpful in recommending a bottle for us and the waitress was very attentive. The food was pretty good and very filling. My favourite was the olive oil ice cream
