    It was for my daughters 21st Birthday we had very good service, attentive but allowing us to relax too. Food was high quality and delicious, the surroundings were really well maintained and it was a lovely atmosphere. No loud music either as my husband is hard of hearing.

    Visited for Saturday night date night. Booked table ahead and just as well as very busy.
    Lovely little place. Friendly staff and great atmosphere.
    It was very loud but only as we sat next to small group who just got too excited...
    Food came quickly and it was delicious except for calamari. Clearly cheap and cooked from frozen. Just mush inside, couldn't tell what it was really.
    Other than that... yum.
    Spicy prawns and Halloumi and Chorizzo starters... the best.
    Prices very reasonable.
    You must have Churros for dessert. Fresh, hot...divine!!!
    We visit Southend often and will definitely be back.

    Great food and good value just needs A/C as it was so hot inside.

  • ((((* 3 July 2018 by Laura from Essex

    Really loved the food, vegan options were great too, all food was really tasty and good portion sizes.
    Only complaints are that the sangria just tasted of watered down fruit juice, so was a big rip off, and even though we had told them there was a wheelchair user attending they had the doors open in a really awkward way (there's two sets of doors, and they only had one side of each open, but opposite sides) this made it really difficult for us to get in and caused a bit of a commotion, which you can imagine the wheelchair user didn't really appreciate. I also saw people with buggies struggling too, so not sure why they made it difficult on purpose.

    However I would return for the amazing food!
