delicious food

Happy customers

"For a Spanish food lover like me, I'm very lucky to have found this place. The food was delicious, and portions were very well served. A very pleasant location near Angel and I would definitely come back!"
"Very nice hidden gem restaurant. I recommend to go to this place to find authentic Spanish food and service. We tried and recommend, home made "albondigas" meatballs and Spanish omelette. Service was on time, very good and fun Spanish team, not expensive compared to other central London places. Surely, will come back soon."
"I booked this place for a dinner for two with our baby who slept soundly all the way through our wonderful dinner. Service extremely friendly. Warm ambience. Best of all the food! Great portions, reasonable price, best tapas in islington by far! Will definitely come back and spread the word. "
