Went with friends for the lunch deal. Very interesting decor, wonderful service and interesting food. Only improvement would be having a few vegetables on the main meal plate. Oh yes, the cocktail was delicious too.

    Overpriced dinner with lot of unexpected charges on top of the set menu.
    Food is alright but not excellent. Very good location though

    Having eaten here before, and enjoyed it very much, I was looking forward to going back. We had drinks in the bar first, and noticed that all the booth seats were torn and covered in gaffer tape. The service in the bar was slow.

    In the Restaurant, the service was much better and more attentive. We went for the Feast On London menu. The first 2 courses were delicious. Unfortunately, both the puddings tasted so fragrant it was a little like eating soap.

    There was also one waiter that must have kicked the back of my chair 3 times - which was annoying!

    The biggest issue was that there just was not enough food, despite having ordered a tomato salad (again delicious) to go with our mains. To the extent that I got something else to eat on the way home.

    Style over substance. Food was terrible, and clearly made with no love. The service was variable, the staff were friendly but it was busy and we had to wait a lot and ask twice for several things. You can't deny the stylish ambiance/aesthetic of your surroundings. However it was very difficult to part with £180 in total when the food is arguably better at McDonalds.

    Very disappointed with the food. We booked the 3 course deal. Portion sizes are ridiculously small. I understand this is a tapas restaurant but I didn't expect to get tapas size portions for both my starter and main.

    Food was quite bland. Didn't taste Spanish at all. Even though I made a special request that it was a birthday celebration on the booking. No effort was made not even noticed!
