The Robert Angell-designed interior mirrors Spanish culture, with ornate black and white mosaic floors running throughout, and a glimmering copper-coloured vaulted ceiling giving a nod to the famous sherry casks of Jerez.

Its rooftop terrace offers breathtaking views across the city skyline, and is the perfect setting for one of the colourful cocktails prepared by the mixologists. The ‘Inspired by Spain’ cocktail menu complements the food menu, alongside a range of aqua classics.

    Very nice ambiance in the restaurant. Service was 2nd to none and my GF loved her experience for her Birthday evening meal. Price of dishes was resonable but I would of had less the next time I go.

    Also the cocktails were too expensive and the pigeon was not the best dish I have ever had if I am honest.

    Service was substandard. There was no one in the restaurant, but we were made to wait for our table as we got there slightly early. Our dieatary requirements were ignored despite us telling them, so had to send back a dish.

    Wonderful! Great ambience and atmosphere, with friendly and professional staff. As for the food: every mouthful was an explosion of flavours! Exceptional talent shown in the combining of ingredients, with dishes served promptly. Favourite dishes: the chestnut and mushroom terrine and the scallops with crab gratin. We're also now hooked on manzanilla olives!

    After we managed to find the entrance to the restaurant in a parallel road to Regent Street it felt like a sophisticated place. The promotion booked via Bookatable had apparently been withdrawn and there was a more expensive menu on offer, but after bringing out the issue to the waitress, the restaurant manager swapped the promo and let us get 4 dishes from the new menu. The menu is based on traditional Spanish tapas deconstructed into a more upmarket presentation. The final result is good for some of the dishes. However, some dishes were added to the menu with a hammer.. such is the case with the patatas bravas (as much as one can deconstruct the tapa, it is just overpriced "fries"). My favourite dish was 'pimientos rellenos'. On a different note, the portions are not really big, a three course menu would have felt VERY short and would have ended in a negative experience.

    Beware the 12% service charge. But the staff especially the lovely Stephanie our waitress was very attentive. The food was beautiful. The place was beautiful especially the roof top terrace. The cocktails were amazing. The place and the staff were beautiful.

    A very impressive place with high standards of food and service. From stepping into the building to departing it was a very pleasant experience. Two of us went for dinner and had the set menu at £30 for 3 tapas dishes and a cocktail per person. The staff were charming, and were happy to take time to advise or answer questions about the different dishes. Between us we had six different dishes and each was absolutely delicious. Portions were good so that we felt well fed when we finished. A good cocktail too. It was pleasant to go out onto the outdoor terrace after the meal. It is possible to have a pre- or post prandial drink from the bar there. A remarkable place all round and on my list of places worth eating at in London. One very small observation is that the background music didn't seem appropriate to the ambience or the diners - and too much base.
