Great service but the food was awful. The food menu is a clear afterthought. Three pieces of supermarket salami doused in oil and a dollop of cheese on top is an entree one serves at home and not at a restaurant. Will not be coming again.

Wow! Had a really enjoyable evening. Food was class, accompaniment of wine was top shelf and to cap it off, service from Bruno, was exceptional. Would highly recommend and will continue to guide people in their direction as a suggestion.
Food was fresh, well priced and above all, YUM!

Great for after work drinks. Not crowded at 5.30pm!! Great wine list. Very knowledgeable and helpful sommelier. Not a great selection of snacking foods to share.

Great service from the girl serving us... Very knowledgeable on the wine (and winery) she served and went above and beyond to satisfy us.

It's a cute venue with a cute concept based around its name. The food is good but the wine list is better.

Went on a packed Saturday night but after a little wait our waitress managed to put together a table for us. The service and food were wonderful. It is Spanish style so many small plates they come throughout the evening. Wonderful wine list, well mixed cocktails and a great overall hang. Highly recommended.

We went with friends, four in total and the food, drinks and service were outstanding. It is certainly a place that I would go back to with friends or just the two of us. It is lively and the atmosphere is really fun and friendly, this is mostly due to the staff, both behind and in front of the bar. Cocktails are inventive and the staff are effecient.
