Oh great, I had a delicious pok belly and a special paella, lovely food. Would go back again.

We got a table for three in the upstairs area - which was quiet and lacking in any atmosphere. the staff were friendly and took our drinks order of three beers straightaway but we waited a good 10-15 minutes for them to materialise. Slightly odd in a pretty quiet restaurant. We ordered a mixture of plates to share - the serrano ham turned up first - this was excellent but was sadly the best thing we ordered. We waited an age for the other plates - again very odd as by now the restaurant was pretty dead even downstairs. The greek salad was tiny and overpriced, the halloumi pretty jmuch burnt, as were the fish cakes, the veal skewer was tasteless and the accompanying gloop too sweet. The pork belly was the best but not a standout. The roasted pepper bland. All in all pretty damn average with no great flavour punch at all. And quite expensive for a Sunday lunch at £40 a head with only a couple of drinks each. Would not return or recommend.


Took my gf there for her birthday and strangely I sat at the same table for the third time in a row! Anyway, so the food was awesome. Very affordable too, if you take into account the quality of the food you're swallowing. The atmosphere is great once the Diners take their seats. It's very intimate and the lights are low for the wine to flow. The wine choices are excellent here too. The sea food paella is great. Great selection of tapas and very tasty As I say, affordable romance at its best. Lovely. Will definitely go again. Visited September 2013


Hace unos dias estuvimos cenando alli con los amigos y a pesar de que el sevicio es deficiente la paella estaba espectacular, nos recordó a las de la playa de malvarosa en Valencia, buenisima. Pero las tapas no estaban nada mal , la comida buenisima. Gracias por tener un rinconcito de españa en londres.

I went last week with 3 friends from work for a leaving do. We had 3 bottles of OKish but overpriced white wine (24 quid each) some totally forgetable nibbles (the cheese was sweating more than we were) and 4 glasses of white wine and this was 30 quid a head. Now the decor is fine, no loud music a bonus and the toilets are clean. However, every time we tried to request something, we had to repeatedly catch the waitress attention, even though it was not busy and before we had even finished speaking we ended up addressing the back of her head as she couldnt even be bothered to look at us. Plates arrived and were just dumped down in front of us. When it came to leaving time the waiter who served us was so unpleasant we wondered what on earth we could have done to offend him apart from stumping up a heft chunk of money per head. Really really bad service. We wont be going back. Avoid at all costs.


Stylish decor and authentic tasty food at prices surprisingly fair for the west end. The pork paella is a revelation! Different but interesting tapas not just the usual suspects.

Nice atmosphere downstairs, farily bland food. Donostia and Providores in the neighbourhood are far superior tapas.

Great Patta Negra but then went downhill fast everything else dire, sent steak back twice, tough as old boots not even an apology waiter who shruged his shoulders and deducted from bill, one to avoid plenty of other great places around.


I've been a couple of times to this Catalan tapas bar and have loved it every time. The food has been consistently good, and the service is chirpy and efficient. I would certainly recommend it and it's a nice spot for after work drinks when you just want a small bite to eat. Thumbs Up!


The manager of this restaurant has no customer service skills whatsoever. I am astonished that he has any customers at all with the attitude he has. We will never visit again and will encourage our friends to do the same. This has been one of our worst culinary experiences.
