The food is very good, but the service was poor, we stayed only for about 1 hour and they kick out because they have other people were waiting, We would like to have a second drink but we couldn't.

The meal was lovely but 90 mins is sadly really not enough time for an evening meal, which tainted the experience

It was awful weather when we went and out food blew off the table, the staff were AMAZING, honestly they were nice and funny and efficient and just made the lunch out really enjoyable. Food was also cracking and we just had a wonderful fun afternoon

Lovely food and atmosphere. The only downside is our group were really rushed. We were seated 15 minutes late and were told we only had a 90 minute allocation for the table which meant due to being sat late, we only had 75 minutes in which to order, drink and dine, which was not sufficient. Table allocations should surely be 2 hours minimum and extended where parties are seated late through no fault of their own.

If tapas on the terrace is to continue, please can you think of purchasing some heaters? Lovely food and great service as always.

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!!

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.
