Excellent Tapas!
We had 5 dishes to share between two of us and they were all so tasty and filling! Washed down with a lovely glass of red. The staff were very attentive and the food came out quickly.
We had churros for pudding which were wonderful too!
Would thoroughly recommend this place and hope to visit again when we're back in the area for sure!

Everything was good, apart from the cocktails which were expensive. The sangria we ordered was not what we expected in terms of taste for the money we paid.

Excellent steaks. The Chimmicurra sauce has improved since our last visit. The English mustard is also now excellent rather than the yellow American hot dog mustard previously offered. The Black Malbec wine was excellent. All staff were very obliging.

The menu is interesting. The white house wine was disappointing. Service fine, ambience not very different from when it was Cau.

Steak was beautiful- it’s hard to get a really good blue steak but this was perfect. We had tapas for starters and they were all tasty. Dessert menu is limited but the churros were good.

Staff were extremely, possibly overly, attentive during the first two courses, but then forgot to take our dessert order for ages.

Restaurant was warm and comfortable, much of the decor seems to be that left by Cau but updated with a new artwork.

This was our second visit the first being on a week day for an early lunch. Then the restaurant was very very quiet so service was great. The second visit was on a Friday evening so obviously busier. We were seated on the balcony which was ok but unfortunately we were forgotten and had to keep asking to order first drinks and then food. The food was outstanding both times but let down with the service.

The service was very friendly, the food (or wine, but the bill was high) was expensive and a bit greasy for my taste.
The ambience was okay, it was a wednesday evening, but not a lot of guests. A bit empty/

We were here to celebrate a birthday. I had pre-booked a table but when we arrived, it was clear that a table had not been reserved for us as they had to push 2 tables together. We then didn’t receive a menu to even order a drink for at least 10 minutes. The food was good although one of the party didn’t receive a side order for several minutes after receiving his steak - the staff seemed to be dealing with a Deliveroo order. I was also unhappy at the table being cleared before everyone had finished eating - very bad!

If these issues could be sorted, which are very simple to address, this has the potential to be a great restaurant.

I’m not quite sure where to start. This is quite possibly the most horrendous experience I have ever had in a restaurant! The food is appalling, the service is even worse and the managers attitude when you question the two tops it all off. Mario the manager is the worst front of house this company could have picked!! Who in their right mind recruited him?! The steak was grey and swimming in a pool of blood, sides never came, tapas was frozen potato’s, chicken was cold, I could go on. Do yourself a favour and AVOID, AVOID, AVOID!

Although the ambiance is lovely, the food is very mediocre. Overpriced fir the portion sizes. We only had 4 tapas bowls and 2 drinks , the bill was £50. We wouldn’t return.

Lovely food and great menu!
Our waitress was extremely busy with a large table and got distracted whilst taking our order and left our table mid-way through to see to other table.
This didn’t bother us too much though as we could tell she was busy.
A lovely evening and didn’t feel rushed to leave the restaurant. Would definitely recommend.

Excellent food. Disappointed that as the Malbec by the glass was unavailable, none of the in house Management thought to offer either of the other Malbecs, which were virtually the same bottle price, by the glass. A minor point, but when I requested English Mustard, milder American was provided.
