I loved the tapas menu, nice selection. The service was friendly and efficient. I think the wine menu could have been a bit better and. I didnt have a main meal so cant comment on that

This place was very good, welcoming & efficient staff and the food was great - although watch out for the large portions! We ordered a starter & main to share & it was plenty (and very tasty) I would recommend & would revisit!

I really enjoyed the vegetarian meal here (chickpea patties). It was interesting, high in protein, and very filling. Always enjoy a place that offers a solid veggie option.

Do you flinch when you hear the word vegetarian? Do you despair of finding that smoky meaty nirvana you've been searching for? Order the beef short ribs and thank me later.
