    I love this place. The food is lovely, modern Spanish, with an excellent and interesting selection. The churros were particularly memorable. Most of all, the service is efficient, attentive and completely charming.

    Easy to find, great location for a pre theatre meal. Can’t fault the steak. A very nice small restaurant with a good atmosphere. Can’t fault the service, the waiter who I believe was the manager was warm and welcoming, had some humour which made the meal even more enjoyable. Would recommend for a pre theatre meal.

    The starter choices are good. The linguine with crab is amazing, as is the ducks breast. The red cabbage with the duck is perfectly seasoned.

    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.
