Excellent atmosphere and top staff. Great food but it is often difficult to get a table. Definitely a place to return to.

Met friends here mid-week and it was as lively as it would have been on a weekend. Very popular and cosy restaurant with the most amazing tapas. Great variety with excellent service.

We deserve a few more bar/cafes like this in Swindon. There was a good choice of Tapas and those we shared were very tasty. I like the informal atmosphere which reminds me of foreign holidays. The wine we choose was of good quality and the...More

First of all, you are quite right that the rice in the meat paella was not properly cooked on this occasion. There is no excuse for this and both the chef and the manager were as upset about it as you were, as was I...More

Well another couple of months have passed with frequent weekly visits. We are enjoying the Sanctuary Tapas, especially the Behars Kurdish rice. The service continues to be friendly and efficient and the atmosphere good. Long may it continue.More

SInce they've moved to Devizes road, the service has dropped and unfortunately this place has fallen victim of "Profit over Customers" I used to enjoy going to the old venue but will never eat here again now. Shame as i always enjoyed the food.More

On what basis do you make this allegation? You make no comment at all about what you had to eat or drink, or about what you found lacking in the service, some of which might have been helpful to others. Instead, you express an opinion...More

Description
Who we are: We are a Spanish style TAPAS BAR. Independently owned and run, which relocated to larger premises in October 2014. This means we are a bar that serves tapas, not a restaurant. Because we are often busy and buzzing, we are not the ideal place for a quiet romantic night out, but we offer a warm welcome to all our and aim to restore you, whether you're in need of food, drink or company. What we do: All our food is prepared here from fresh, locally sourced or imported Spanish ingredients. Our extensive hot and cold tapas menu changes regularly and we list 6-8 daily specials. We have a range of Spanish wines, sherries, beers and spirits. We have some tables in the bar, which can be booked (max 8 people) at lunchtimes or evenings, except Friday and Saturday evenings, when it's first come, first served. Closed Monday lunchtime only, open 6 lunchtimes and 7 nights a week. On Sunday lunchtimes, we serve paella, as is the tradition in Spain, with a choice of mixed, seafood or vegetarian paellas. Advance booking for paella is essential.
