Initially went to the restaurant and was told they open at 12. So went back after 12 and the guy said they were fully booked. Only one or two tables were taken at the time. So I went on their online booking and immediately booked a table for 10mins later. I went back to the same guy and told him I just booked then table, and he looked annoyed and somewhat disappointed. He went in an asked his colleague and she came out to greet us. She was much more pleasant and attentive. Throughout the service, the waitress was great, but the original waiter who had an immediate dislike was still rather rude.

Food was great. The fajita was rather salty, but everything else was very tasty and of good proportion.

Menu a mix of Spanish and Italian, good ingredients nicely cooked and presented at sensible prices. House wines excellent and good value. Pleasant prompt service, relaxed ambience. An enjoyable afternoon.

Excellent service and an excellent range of tapas and wines. A bit chilly outside (no heaters) but pleasant Spanish music playing, good food and excellent service distracted us. We will definitely return later in the year when it's a bit warmer.

Best food I’ve had in Tunbridge Wells. Very interesting menu and the food was amazingly flavoured. Strongly recommend the paella and the tiramisu was exquisite.
Despite Covid restrictions the staff kept everyone happy.
Will definitely return as soon as the weather warms up!

Ample of outside seating. The food, wine and service was great but sitting outside without any heaters was freezing. It was very noisy on the walkway of the pantiles but still a nice meal

The friendly staff made us feel right at home with gorgeous food and a nice cold drink was a real treat! Obviously being lockdown restrictions we had to remain outside and it got rather cold but the staff offered us some blankets to keep us warm. Overall a fantastic place to eat.

As usual staff were friendly and welcoming, food was delicious but due to the busy time service was slow with a few ordering errors but all of which did not worry us as we were not in a rush and understandably they need time to get back to normal service after such a long time away

Food was delicious but the portions were massive! Could do with making the starters a little smaller. The service was excellent and we had a lovely evening. Really good Covid precautions, including a QR code for the menu so they are not wasting paper.

We went for our 15th wedding anniversary the starter was very salty (garlic bread) and my main 4 small meatballs and spaghetti was expensive and bland. My husband had peri peri chicken which was not very hot (spicy) so all in all disappointing

Food was over cooked and over salted - almost inedible.

Waitress offered us free drinks which was very kind (cocktails) but they were so disgusting we had to leave them - not usually the type to turn down free drinks!!

Very disappointing will NOT be returning.
