Genuin tapas place, with good food and prices. Rather small and very busy, but it’s worth waiting for a table or go early (before the locals eat dinner). Good and friendly service.

We chose this bar as it’s quite local and is always full of locals, which is normally a good sign, on this occasion we couldn’t have been more wrong. From the minute we arrived the staff appeared welcoming, but this instantly changed to pushy and...More

Great authentic Spanish Tapas, really good tasty food. Moderately priced. Had a great bottle of red Faustino Reserve. Sat outside to eat, nice atmosphere but plastic table and chairs let’s down the ambience. The food speaks for itself, would go back for more.

They brought out extra tables and chairs for us as the restaurant was already rather full. Perfect jamón de Serrano to start with, then a variety of fishy dishes and I had the rabo de toro (oxtail stew) which was excellent.
