"Extensive tapas menu. We came here on our first night in the city, having stumbled across it online, and couldn't be happier! The staff were friendly, the menu was extensive and food incredible, and background music made the night very enjoyable. In particular, the vegetarian menu was large so would recommend for anyone with dietary requirements." - 378faraha
"Great value tapas in a friendly venue with a good atmosphere. 3 of us had tapas here on a Saturday evening. Very friendly, nice background music, great tapas, and very good value by dublin standards. Highly recommended. The chorizo in a wine reduction was particularly good, and the vegetarian aubergine dish was exceptional." - Michael S
"Hidden Gem. Walked in hoping they had a table and they were happy to accommodate us. The food was great and the service was very friendly. Definitely worth a visit" - Daydream17472432148
