We went on a Tuesday night. The staff and atmosphere was great. The food was great though it was on the smaller side especially the lamb sliders ; 2 small ones on a plate no potatoes or a little salad for £8 I thought it was too expensive ; chicken with mustard was a bit too sweet otherwise me and my partner enjoyed our anniversary. Thanks to our waiter (sorry forgot his name) he was great.

Very satisfied with the food . The tapas were good and good value within the lunch time menu . The rice dish was a little pricey at £16. A little disappointed as the cheaper bottles of red wine ( Garnacha) were unavailable and the waiter did not suggest the house red but offered a much more expensive option . Incidentally we tried it later as an extra glass and it was delicious. The waiter was ok but not particularly friendly. I would not rate the restaurant as number 3 in Manchester in the tapas section .

Nice food but not much of it! At £8 for Gambas and £9 for pulpo, I would have expected more than 4 prawns and a couple of small strips of pulpo.

This was the second time here & I was I was very disappointed. I brought along my parents because I had said oh lovely the place,service & food was previously. Only this time, we walked in and there were dirty plates left along the bar area, waiters eating at the bar the greeting and atmosphere was dull. Once we were seated we were served by a lovely male waiter who was very engaging and helpful, half way through serving this changed to a miserable female waitress who had no idea at all. She stood staring at us all the way through the meal and constantly asked if we needed another drink. The food was average, not as good as previous visit. Two of the party has purchased a groupon deal (6tapas for £24), when the bill arrived it turned out to be a lot more expensive, an extra £80 per couple. Our previous visit didn’t come to this amount and we had much more to drink. We left the restaurant dissatisfied and disappointed. I will not recommend and will not be returning.

Hi we came on sat night for my birthday meal with another couple , after reading all the fabulous comments and reviews on trip advisor we were looking forward to it. We ordered the mix artisan bread basket with some alioli which came out just the same plain crusty bread which was was very dry and not as stated in the menu. We also felt really rushed at the table. Overall the ladies were lovely who served us. Many thanks

Lovely restaurant with gorgous food, service was efficient and staff very friendly and knowledgeable. Just one small problem was that it felt very cold, I would have been more comfortable if I had kept on my coat!!! Obviously it was very cold outside but did not get warm the whole time I was there approx two hours. I would definitely book again though, food & drink 5 star
