When we travelled France we looked for the Tapas type eatery because it was the most affordable. Well this is not France and this is not cheap BUT in each plate of tapas you get fantastic quality. There is nothing cheap about the quality in...More

This restaurant does delicious food in a lovely relaxed environment. I don't think it can be called tapas as the choice isn't really Spanish at all, but it has a non showy and interesting menu of small plates, which were very tasty indeed. Would highly...More

Visited twice and not again. Food was very good but portions are too small for the price. The staff use "tapas" as an excuse for food taking far too long to arrive. Service was average.

Ate dinner outdoors in this charming little place. The staff were warm and friendly, and pretty efficient despite having a full house this evening. We tried two different pizzas and shared them half-and-half and they were both really delicious. A few adjustments were made by...More

Small outdoor area but you can share a table with other guests. Super friendly young staff. Delicious tapas and a not long but good wine list. They make pizza. Nice pace, like a house yard.
