Great food and lovely staff. It was a very busy night so we didn’t mind the long wait for a few of our dishes, staff did stay on it. More surprising was that we had to ask 4 or 5 times before we got a bottle of water. Will still recommend to others. Waitress and Mark were very nice and helpful.

Very enjoyable tapas meals and plentiful. Service was good and everything was clearly explained from menu to the actual dish. I also noticed knowledgeable staff talking on wines at another table. I went on a Groupon voucher but would certainly go again. I noticed there is also a taster menu with wines and also pre theatre menu which is very impressive. I do hope the restaurant does well despite just being hidden in a side street

Was a groupon deal --£24 for 6 tapas and 2 small glasses of wine. Although the food was good, I would not have liked to have paid the full price. Although the tapas offered good value, I resent being charged £7 for 2 small baskets of bread and £3.50 for a medium sized bottle of water ! A full basket of bread in Spain will cost no more than one euro.It just spoils the whole experience. Did not feel the surroundings were particularly authentic and the serving staff, although very efficient,were all English. Glad to hear the chef is Spanish. We do holiday in Spain several times a year and we do have a lot of experience of tapas restaurants.

The service and food was good. The only comment is the tables are too close to each other. A bit more space would be nice.

We had the tasting menu and it was brilliant; the squid croquettes and the cod dish were the standouts but all were delicious. Will definitely be back.

My husband and I went to La Banderas for a birthday lunch. The tapas menu was varied and the food was very good. The only disappointment was the dessert menu, not exactly as described.
