Second time to this beautiful bar/restaurant, back with colleagues this time. We all loved it. Great to enjoy cocktail on heated terrace and continue to evening with delicious food. It would be nice to have a few more options in the menu, but certainly will go back again!

We went to this restaurant a few months ago and had an excellent meal. On this visit we once again had a great meal with excellent service.

This place is quickly becoming my new favourite tapas place. Yum! Staff are fantastic, and so is the food.

The service was very poor, I had to ask for the wine list about 5 times. The mussel starter was average and my main course, Sea Bass was the smallest piece of fish I have ever seen, if it had been served as a starter it would have been barely enough.
