Amazing food, we ordered basically everything. Service was quick and friendly, loved everything just coming when it was ready! Was a shame there were no lights / heaters (even some candles on the table for a bit of light) But otherwise so nice!

First off have to say the food was excellent! The table is slightly small for four people, very crowded with the dishes, and there was a lack of patio heaters to keep us warm, unlike neighbouring restaurants. Food arrived before the drinks, apparently the bar staff were “in training” which I found surprising at should not have been at my expense. At one point we needed to clear our own plates on the table to create enough room. So at £42 per head including wine, (with 2 kids) whilst the food was excellent, other factors made this slightly disappointing overall. Compliments to the chefs - food was excellent!!

Such a shame that there was not enough cover to stop us getting soaked when it rained

Food was fine but standard tapas - very disappointed that the old Portuguese menu has been ditched. Was a fairly regular visitor in the past, not sure what will entice me back now. My other concern was that a discretionary service charge was added to the bill - no problem with that, but I do not then expect to be asked do I want to add a gratuity when I come to pay by credit card.

Lovely afternoon, delicious tapas, good service, we were outside so can’t comment on atmosphere of the restaurant but it was a pleasant convivial afternoon and we were looked after by the staff. Tapas were outstanding

We ordered pretty much every dish on the terrace menu and couldn’t fault any of them. Great meal.

Only that although the sangria was amazing, it was served in such a small glass and for £8 I expected it to be a bit bigger. The food was all amazing ! I’ll definitely be back :)

A great restaurant with delicious tapas. Was actually very happy that they didn't have a huge menu because that can make the ordering process so much longer when you have too much to choose from. We had at least one of each dish, all of which were delicious though some did arrive cold but still tasty. I think the outdoor tables were maybe a bit too close to each other, and they could do with some heaters since Manchester is never really that warm. Otherwise, lovely experience!

Loved everything about my experience. From the process of reserving (which is quick and simple) to the service and food on the day.
