Tasty tapas style dishes in an incredible location. Would not be good on a very hot day or in winter

We got there and they turned us away because they said they could not cook anymore food .

Don Tapas has the right idea. It is novel and fun, the food is solid. But the banquet option was underwhelming. No one told us what was on the menu or what we would be getting, we were left wondering what was next if anything. And we were then told at the end that dessert was not included. I would pop in again for a casual bite and drink, but not for the banquet with a large group.

Went at lunchtime on a Sunday and they only had 1 beer left on the menu and a couple of other food dishes we wanted to order were unavailable. Takes a while to get the waiters attention, looked like 2 shipping containers for bar and kitchen and then just laid out some tables and chairs on the side, not as hip as I imagined. Nachos tasted a little stale but the rest of the food was quite tasty but not sooo good I'm eagerly recommending people.

A bit windy on the night we went, but I can imagine this would be great spot during the day! Food was delicious and service was great! A bit disappointed the menu wasn't as expansive as the main restaurant, but still so yum! So we can't complain!

The venue is divine. My partner was captivated by the rustic venue and we were able to take some incredible photos! We came with a group of international visitors who had pre-looked at the menu and decided we'd go for a light dinner and drinks.
The menu was missing a few essential items we made the trip for such as the cheese and charcuterie boards. There were also no cocktail options, a must for casual dining, I believe.
The wind was also very strong. A wind break might be worthwhile and the idea of "contained" made us think we'd be sitting in containers, however it's more of a rustic tin shed.
Update the menu online or notify visitors that the menu is rotating to see what works.
