Visited early on a Friday evening for the pre-theatre dinner. The food was good and servered by friendly and attentive staff. Three course meal for two with a bottle of house wine was good value at £40 per person.

We visited after buying a coupon on Groupon and sadly didn’t enjoy any of the tapas we received. It was greasy and not tasty. We were so disappointed as we’d be looking forward to trying this restaurant out, given how good the reviews are overall....More
