We had a nice evening, but the wine was very expensive for not particularly special wine and a friend wanted just a glass of Sauvignon Blanc, but this wasn't possible. The food portions were very small and didn't compare to other tapas available in the area. The crayfish was nice. The toilets were very glamorous!

We went to this restaurant on Saturday evening aware that it had received mixed reviews since it opened in June. Whatever teething problems had occurred in the past have clearly been rectified. The service was friendly and attentive without being overwhelming, the food was very tasty and served with the sensible timing that is essential for tapas style restaurants. The dips were delicious, as was the Chicken Shish. Best chunky chips I've had for a long time and those bite-sized chocolate brownies - superb. Nice atmosphere and the front of house manager was lovely to chat to. Great ambience with a nice mix of clientele. We will certainly enjoy going back.

You have made a really beautiful place to go. The sharing tapas menu has expanded (at long last) and is much better. When I was last there I thought you needed to offer a much broader selcection which you now have. Thanks for a fun nightXXX

Greek salad and aubergine lacked a bit of seasoning that is why I am not giving it 5 stars. Cocktails were very good and so was service.

Food , drinks and atmosphere were great , but just disappointed that our party of six were informed at 10.50 pm that the restaurant would be closing at 11.00pm !, even though it said 11.30 pm on the door! we had just been served a large glass of wine and two hot coffees and from then on we were on borrowed time !!, we finished up and we were seen off the premises! , the door locked behind us and we were left to say goodbyes in the street , for a friday night out a slightly disappointing and rushed end to the evening , maybe less staff at the end to wait until customers have had time to finish, most restaurants are not in quite so much of a hurry to lock the doors and empty the restaurant dead on time .........

While food was good service could be a lot better had to request drinks order 3 times some orders came out late (we are aware it's a tapas restaurant) but kitchen everything else is finished...... Also could have cleared table of glasses etc without having to be asked to do it

the waitress forgot to put one of our food orders through so had to remind them. Wine is expensive. Food portions are too small for how expensive they are. No atmosphere in resteraunt area.

Booking was fast and easy, staff were happy and helpful. Cocktails and food were delicious! Only a small issue. A member of staff came over after an hour and said they'd need the table back. Apparently when booking a table you only get a 2 window slot. This did not work for me as we planned to stay there drinking cocktails all night. Luckily the manager sorted something out meaning we didn't have to move, but I think when booking you should be given the option of how long you wish to stay.
