    Went for the 1/2 price Tapas and had an awesome experience. Our server was knowledgeable, prompt, pleasant and had a good sense of humour. It was a comfortable atmosphere and even though it was busy we didn’t feel rushed. We would definitely go back again and highly recommend!!

    Food was not good. Out of the 5 dishes we got, 3/5 of the dishes were tasteless.

    We all had a great time last night. Megan was an awesome server and the service was fast and delicious. We also had fun helping the table beside us sing happy birthday to one of their friends. We will be back. Joanne ;)

    One of my most favorite restaurants hands down. Food and drink quality is extremely high and well worth traveling to dine here. The restaurant itself is small and it's probably wise to make a reservation. The portions are also small, but it's a tapas bar so that should not be surprising. You get quality not quantity. Would love to see some more specials on the menu, but their standard menu is still fantastic.

    We went for lunch and the service was excellent, the place quiet, and the food was very good. Small Spanish-inspired plates of excellent quality, with a chef who knows how to balance flavours. Jamon and chorizo were good, the cauliflower with orange surprisingly excellent. House made sourdough was good, and they had a good selection of beers, and a wider selection of wines, which we did not try. Non-alcoholic options were also very good. Overall would recommend for a fun experience.

    Lovely ambiance and great service. The bottle shop had a cool selection and the fact that you can purchase and have them cork it for you is a huge plus
