Fabulous bite sized taste sensations. A lovely relaxed, trendy dinner spot. Great service and even though we had our fussy 12 yr old son with us, he had sides of fries, and we had tasty morsels to ourselves! Fabulous, right in the centre of town.

I've been here about 3-4 times and each time it's spot in with service and food quality. The tapas are good size too. Some are easily shared like the meatballs or raviolitini. Wine selection is good and the variety of choices should cover most all...More

Each tapas comes in four portions and it is recommended that each customer orders two plates and then the whole party shares, therefore I would recommend this restaurant for parties of 3 or more. The food was very tasty, though of not very large portions,...More
