Portions are very small for the amount each dish is charged.

Having eaten at various Tapas restaurants before I found the portion size of each dish to be very small. The food itself was very nice but each portion could have been a little larger.

Our food was delicious and the kids menu was especially great value for money! Our dessert did get missed but this was rectified quickly. Our children were made to feel really welcome and special. We had a wonderful visit and a great meal to mark the end of our holiday.

The staff are an absolute delight here, and went over and above to decorate for my husband’s 50th birthday!!! Chloe in particular was so lovely!! The food.......wow, it was absolutely delicious!!! We ordered chicken and chorizo paella, seafood paella and several tapas dishes!! Everything was so fresh and hot, and we all thoroughly enjoyed every part. A jug of sangria to wash it down is a must!! We will definitely be coming back!! Amazing thank you!!!

This was my second visit because I enjoyed my first so much. The quality of the food was first class, just like being back in Galicia. The staff were friendly and efficient and the service was prompt. Highly recommended.

Food was really good but we did arrive a few minutes late, we were told that we would have to leave our table by 8pm which we said wasn’t an issue. We then were waiting to order for 20 minutes. The paella arrived which was really good, asked twice how many it was for as usually paella is a minimum of 2 people and we ordered 2, said it was for 2 people. When the bill arrived I queried it as there was only one dish and we were charged twice (priced more expensive than other dishes too) we were told quite sharply that we had what we paid for, which isn’t an issue was just querying, though probably would’ve ordered 1 between us if it was clearer on the menu. Think the attitude of the staff could’ve been a lot better, felt like we were an inconvenience! X

Excellent meal. Atmosphere unfortunately but of necessity affected by Covid. Otherwise would be 5 stars all the way.

All staff were polite and helpful ,The food was superb served hot and very clear the food was freshly produced. My husband and I attended for a birthday treat for me and I would gladly travel from North Wales to Chester again for the best Tapas experience ever.
