The service is exceptional. It has a menu that changes every week which is exactly what makes a tapas restaurant work. Also extremely accommodating to requests to make your meal perfect. I cannot recommend this restaurant more if you like tapas and a relaxed atmosphere.

This place looks really cool and quirky but the portions are very small and rather overpriced. the menu is limited and the interior could do with a spruce up. My cocktails were excellent but again, expensive.

We visited this restaurant for the third time and left disappointed. Our reasons for this - Menu had changed from our previous visits and had mainly vegetarian options. Our potato dish was not hot and was basically 4 very small new potatoes wrapped in Parma...More

We serve the same menu throughout the whole day. They're suitable for light lunches, and also indulgent dinners. It all depends on how many dishes you order.

Our largest table would be 20 people, but there is also the option of a private hire for the evening then we could seat 25-30.
