Two of us enjoyed a tapas meal last night and would definitely return to this restaurant. The meals were very tasty, the service was friendly and attentive, and the restaurant has a happy and relaxed vibe.

What a great evening. From the warm reception, great ambience, efficient service and delicious food, this was a great dining experience and one that will be repeated. We both had the Moroccan Pork Belly and enjoyed a very nice Pinot Griggio, went beautifully together
