We had reserved a table at the wrong Tapas room using the website but thankfully there was a table free when we arrived and the waitress was great! She even asked if we would like to move to have more space when another table came available. The food was lovely and service fantastic. Would highly recommend!

An intimate tapas restaurant with truly great food, ambiance and service.

There is an open kitchen which is a really nice feature. It is difficult to find such high quality tapas at a similar price point in London.

Lovely little restaurant. The food was delicious, they definitely brought the amazing taste of Basque country to London. The only downside was that it was a very small restaurants and 2 shouting guests were very loud to hear throughout the whole meal. It was quite noticeable and so it would have been nice for the staff to tell them to quieten down a little bit. Other than that, wonderful night, wonderful food, and definitely returning!

This tiny restaurant with just 20 covers is probably the best Tapas I've had in London. Now that I've had a week to reflect, I still hold this view. Best to have everything on the menu.

Very authentic tapas stile where it's about the good drinks with good small tapas to complement the food. Really enjoyed it and will be going back there many time I think.
