We already knew the Bloomsbury street kitchen who was stunning, but this one is truly wonderful (especially if you love Mexican and spicy food). Our waitress was kind and attentive with us, food is excellent event the desserts and cocktails are very good.
I recommend this address on blind faith !

Great cocktails, food and service. We were a party of 9 with different dietary requirements celebrating a birthday. Lovely surprise to have a Happy Birthday dessert produced with no prior notice. It’s our second meal here. First was a Saturday evening - very busy and quite noisy. This time, much quieter on a Sunday, but still a good atmosphere. Would definitely recommend.

Dined here Saturday 15th Feb, considering I booked a table months ago, I was a bit disappointed with our table. We were put right in the back, next to the emergency exit so not a great start.
This did affect the entire ambience as I felt as though we weren’t really part of of restaurant.
The food was average at best. Far to many dishes smothered in spicy sauces, so the flavours of the actual products just didn’t come through.
Wine and cocktails were very good.
I thought it was very expensive considering you are having small plates.
Staff were very attentive, happy to help, and very hard working.

Great service, great atmosphere and an unexpected gem right on Leicester Square. Food was yummy but even for tapas was on the extreme side of small portions, more like mini portions. For 2 people, 4 glasses of wine and 6 tapas was £120

Went for my boyfriend's birthday. Very good food and service. They gave us a free pudding to which was nice. However only thing I would say it was a bit to expensive for us. We didn't realize you had to order 3-4 dishes per person which made the bill expensive. We didn't order drinks and the bill came to £70. I would also recommend getting tap water as the bottled water cost nearly £5. Overall it was very good and I would recommend but just be aware of the menu. It was too upmarket for us.

Took my family for lunch prior to theatre. The service from the start was very good. One of us has a food intolerance and we were very impressed with the level of knowledge the waitress had. Later however 2others came over to check what we were having and ensured nothing had any hint of sesame in it. Very impressed. The food was delicious and although it is described as small plates there was plenty of it. For the price the fixed menu lunch. Would recommend to anyone

The food in this restaurant was innovative and tasty, flavours outside the ordinary, and we really liked every dish we ordered. This included fish, meat and vegetable dishes.
They are very small though, I would go for 4 each rather than the recommended three, unless you are having a meat fest.
There is plenty of choice for gluten and dairy free if needed. Somewhat disappointing it was the same old same old sorbet for dessert, come on chefs, think coconut milk, oats, polenta, it is possible to make a tasty dessert everyone would eat.
I would go back, and I would recommend this restaurant.
