Lock down take away meal from this local restaurant. An engaging owner and lovely food. An ideal alternative to our usual Indian/pizza take away. It made our Saturday night. Cannot wait till the nonsense is over and we can sit in with a fine Spanish wine

Lovely service, we ordered drinks and a couple of tapas. The food was a little bland. Also we asked for manchego cheese on the meatballs (albondigas) and were charged 2.50, which was nearly half the price of the meatball dish itself.

The meal was ok but portions were poor so poor value for money. Had a decidedly average paella and paid for extra prawns. Received two prawns in total. So 2.50 per prawn? It was also not a very big paella. The mini loaf and small ramekin of cheese in the middle of the table? About 5 each. I'm just glad we had dinner plans later! Over 60 and only just satiated. It's a shame because I like the place and the mini olive loaf was lovely but to charge that for something the size of a dinner roll is just greedy.

Exceptional authentic Spanish tapas. Owned and run by a Spanish family bringing top quality service, enjoyable evening atmosphere, smoth fruity sangria and fresh quality and tasty food. Booked in again for a few days time as it's so impressive
