Very nicely decorated place across from the museum next to the bridge across the Taw. Interesting menu, but not a great offer for breakfast - tea cake, one kind of muffin as well as some flapjacks and short cake.

Good food, plenty of choices and relaxed and informal as a Tapas restaurant should be. Friendly service. Desserts were very good, although I really shouldn't have after all the lovely... More

Wow what a fantastic place. The best tapas I have had and the atmosphere is so relaxing. Didnt feel rushed at all. Plenty of time to appreciate the full experience of tapas. Could not ask for more attentive staff nothing was to much. Will definitely be back in the near future.

Visited on Saturday night for a friends 40th, food was delicious and plentiful, we had a set menu for £15 a head and personally I though it was good value. Only gripe was no drinks service at the table? Did not get asked once.

Had a wonderful meal here on a dismal Monday night. Great Tapas escpecially recommend the squid, the scotch egg on the specials menu and the chorizo potatoes although everything we ate was very fresh and cooked to order. The restaurant/bar is nicely decorated and with tables outside it must be really nice on a warm sunny day. Will definitely visit... More

I come here quite a lot, whether it is just for a few lunch time drinks, weekend drinks or for dinner and it has never dissappointed. The atmosphere & building is lovely.
