    Great food although the waiters are super busy and took a while for things but they were all lovely. Really enjoyable evening with interesting decor. I'd go back again

    Usual good and friendly service. Food up to scratch. Menu seems shorter than in the past, and certainly has increased in price, so value dropped. Will still patronise this good local though in the future.

    What a lovely warm, inviting restaurant. The food was delicious and I probably had the nicest carpaccio of beef fillet I've ever had. Great service and a lovely experience.

    Have been here before and it was really good. This time not so. No dishes for oil with the bread. No Balsamic vinegar. Pork very pink and asked for medium. Veggies too salty. In all a very disappointing meal

    The staff were very welcoming and helped us choose a wine as we were unfamiliar with Spanish wine. Our waiter opened two bottles and was prepared to open a third in order to provide a wide tasting experience. His recommendation was spot on and I will definitely view Spanish wines in a new light. The menu was broad without being complicated and there were some inviting Spanish influenced dishes. All the food was tasty and cooked perfectly and the lack of heaviness was noticeable which would suggest that there isn’t an over dependence on oil and butter. The ingredients were so fresh that they didn’t need too much added. The service was relaxed which was very welcome as we had a couple of hours to spend over our dinner. My dining partner and I will definitely be returning and felt that the meal was good value taking into account the food and service.

    Great little restaurant.The food very good; was well prepared and presented. The service was excellent and Jose in particular was attentive and knowledgable. The upstair table by the windows would be a great choice.
