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.

I recently decided it would be nice to drop in after a day out in Manchester. We were feeling peckish after a full day shopping. After telephoning we were told very politely that a table would be made available to us which we were impressed by at such short notice. We arrived for 9:00 and had some excellent drinks by... More

My friend and I dined here on Friday night after a nightmare afternoon stuck in traffic. Our original booking was for 7pm but the staff were nice enough to keep our table for when we finally arrived at 8.40pm. We ordered around 7 dishes between us and still left with leftovers. The chorizo was tasty, not too greasy and full... More

This is a great little hideaway. The many tapas dishes are fantastic. We like to go with friends so that we get a taste of many different dishes, but it is still worth going just as a couple. The atmosphere is very friendly and service is good. I would highly recommend a visit.

Wide ranging Tapas, and more, menu. Complemented by cask beers and lager brewed on site by the owner. Open fire and cozy atmosphere. Never had a food problem here.
