The food is good but the portion sizes seems to have reduced and the price has gone up a little, but saying that the food is good. The owner and his wife are great company and very friendly. Make sure you book at the weekend it is busy,

Friends and family had recommended this restaurant however due to its success it can be a little difficult to book a table. We decided to go mid week, it was much quieter than a Saturday or Sunday however it still had a fantastic atmosphere and the service was excellent. The food was truly superb, we honestly could not fault it.... More

I cannot recommend this tapas restaurant enough, it's amazing, the service is always brilliant and the food always better. The tapas portions are very ample, you won't be left hungry! On top of that they now have their own micro brewery and do some wonderful ales and lagers. I absolutely love this place and would eat there every night if... More

Having recently moved to Littleborough, I've been very impressed by the quality of many of the local eateries. Often, this competition for customers when the quality is high is great for diners and this place is no exception. The food was great, but it's tapas so it's hard to do badly. All well prepared, fresh and great tasting... some fabulous... More

I visited the rake many years ago when it was taken over and made into a tapas restaraunt. I was a regular so to speak due to business in the area. The menu items slightly differed in taste week by week. The good lady chef explained to me that they were "tweaking" the recipes they had been told to use... More

We went on Saturday 10th Dec, we were in a large group (21) and we had our own room and own waiting staff. The food was out of this world. I have been 3 or 4 times now and always thought the food was good but the standard has moved up a level. The starters were fresh, the meat was... More

This is the second time I've been to this restaurant and it didn't disappoint again. The lamb chops were beautifully cooked, whitebait big and tasty and the calamari very crispy. Desserts looked amazing but was so full from the tapas mains that we didn't have space!

Top place, beautiful surrounding, food is delicious, especially meatballs in sauce. The sweets are to die for. My only negative is a little crammed in.
