A wonderful discovery! The cooking was a great combination of tastes and comprised delicious original light dishes. We particularly liked the fish with grape, barley, onion and nut salad. It is situated in the buzzy eat street area and had great atmosphere Dinner was so good we returned for lunch the next day! A must!

On a short trip to Rotorua we were looking for somewhere that did Tapas without all the additions of bread and fries with everything! This is a very popular place, even on a Monday night had to wait 20mins for a table so best to book ahead. We had Tapas and loved the Polenta chips, Halloumi cheese salad , whipped... More

Book if you want to Eat here! I have been twice and both experiences were wonderful. The share plates are generous and flavours are divine! The decor is very well thought out with detail like little black finches on the wine glasses. The staff were knowledgeable and friendly.

We were not expecting a lot as the location looks quite touristy, but the staff was knowledgeable, service quick and food was delicious. We were there early and didn't have to wait, but it would be worth the wait!

Fortunately they were able to give us a table right away. Our waitress was very busy but brought us everything we needed. It took... More

A great evening. Good selection of Tapas and the staff were very engaging and had a solid level of knowledge of the food and wine choices. The food was hot and delivered in a sensible manner with the small choices first followed by the main Tapas. We chose too much but did not regret it just had full stomachs. Very... More
