    Amazing from start to finish, we booked seating outside and it was perfect !! The place is a gem and looks and feels like you are in France or Italy (it was a sunny day but I can see me coming back in the winter), the garden is majestic and we could have stayed all night. The staff are brilliant and the food it everything you want from tapas - perfect selection and cooked to perfection. It’s that good not a picture was taken We will be back again and again !

    Brightness was low in our table. May be it will be appropriate for couple however not for family. A light fixed to wall would help. Otherwise over all it was awesome.

    Food was lovely, staff were nice and very helpful. Even after we accidentally spilt our drinks they were very quick to come over and help clean up and offer us replacements. Overall brilliant place to dine in. The garden looked amazing but unfortunately it was booked up but inside was beautiful as well.

    We visited on Sunday afternoon and we were served by a wonderful girl ( we think it was Tori). She gave some great recommendations for Cocktails and desserts, both of which were amazing. She was also very knowledgeable about products containing allergens, and even double checked with the chef. The Food was Amazing, and as it has been a while since we visited, our positive experience will bring us back again very soon.

    Everything was perfect from start to finish. The girl serving us was so friendly and gave us a lot of help deciding how much to order with a group of 4. One of our party had a severe mushroom and shellfish allergy and she checked twice with the kitchen to make sure none of our dishes had any of the allergens. Price was very good and well worth every penny.

    Was put sitting outside under cover but still getting wet. We asked to be moved and initially told that wasn't possible although there was a number of free tables with more cover and then we got moved inward. Thought that was a bit strange given there were very few people outside. Service and food were very good but a bit disappointed with the seating given to us, it didn't make sense to us.

    Waiting staff were excellent can't complain. Food was lovely but was a joke had to keep asking the waiting staff where it was in the end got fed up just had scallops and duck brought to table. Left hungry but after 2 hour wait wasn't bothered waiting on the rest. Kitchen obviously needs a little help.
