    Will definitely be back and spread the word

    Had a lovely meal as usual. The service was amazing by Alvaro. It was a new menu which was very nice. We had the set menu which cost £15 for two courses which was great value for money. We were the only people in the restaurant and then one more couple arrived. We feel that this is a hidden gem and more needs to be done to make people aware of this fabulous restaurant.
