An unexpected find. Good food and atmosphere. We had a late brunch/early lunch and food is of good quality, came out quickly. We probably were quite loud in our conversation so sorry neighbours!

Visited for a wine break from shopping with my girlfriends. I had a decent vegan potato pizza (no vegan cheese) they have a separate vegan menu which is very cool. Wouldn’t say it was the best pizza ever but not bad.

Not completely a Spanish experience but a combination of Spanish and Greek/Turkish with a kiwi twist. Lovely atmosphere.. dimmed lights and candles . Good service. Food was delicious and good portions.. 3 tapas plus bread and paella was ample for 3 hungry people.
