We walked in off the street & were lucky enough to get a table for two. Great selection of Tapas style food served by the perfect owner/host. We never have cocktails but we couldn't resist at La Rumbla. Made with passion and drank with pleasure.

Superb food and gin/honey cocktails. I think we were fortunate to manage to walk in and get a table, so I would recommend booking. Four dishes between the two of us would have been sufficient, but which one(s) should we have cut?
