Great food, but avoid the upstairs tapas room, insist on sitting downstairs...........the upstairs room is ajoined to the bar...the music is crazy loud, and the seats are really low, while the tables are regular height - really awkward seating position......... didnt make for a great evening..........

Food was a bit on a small side but quite tasty. Menu looks like it's cheap enough, however, you have a buy a good few items to fill you up.

Lovely food. Cocktails were great. Little expensive for the amount of food you get but the food is very good.

Was a good night. A very lively place. Was very busy, to be expected on a Saturday night.

I really enjoyed our meal, and as always the service was great. There is a slight lack of vegetarian options which my friend struggled with but other than that it was great. The cocktails are also terrific and recommended

Great, but food a little disappointing for the cost. Portions aren't as shareable in terms of size as advertised!

Lovely meal in lovely surroundings, with two kids (8 and 7) - no issues, kid friendly! Staff helpful and pleasant, especially as we were originally booked at 7, but were accommodated to eat at 6 instead - all starving!!

Great food, best place for 2 is on the counter because you get to watch the prep chefs working in a line!

Amazing Cocktails. Our waitress was very friendly. Food was super tasty & really quick to arrive at our table after ordering. Everything cooked fresh. The donuts for dessert were unbelievable!

I would not dine at this restaurant again. The service was mediocre, the food was oily, and the chef was arrogant. However, the cocktails were amazing and I would happily drink at the cocktail bar again.

Lovely building, got a good well positioned table, but it was cold....This was during the very cold spell so maybe this is not usually an issue. Food and drink was great in tapas bar, possibly a bit on the expensive side though. Would like to return but probably will not due to the value

Fabulous as always. Great food, great service, great atmosphere, great fun. Soft shell crab dish and prawn tempura is to die for!

We booked lunch here on New Years Day to celebrate a birthday but were disappointed with our decision. A lot of the menu choices were not available and no alternatives were offered. We had eaten here in the past but this occasion was disappointing.

Food was lovely and staff are friendly, helpful and efficient. A bit pricey, but for an occasional treat, I’d definitely recommend. We had tapas lunch, but will be back for dinner soon.

As a solo diner I sat at the kitchen counter and watched the chefs produce one innovative tapas dish after another. Dishes orders came as they were ready, service was swift & the courteous staff took time to recommend & explain dishes as required. Will be recommending 😊
