What's not to like!?

We, group of four, came unannounced but they had a free table for us upstairs, nice and cozy next to the fireplace. The starters were amazing, I had the omelette which was really good. The waitress was lovely. For mains I had the 250g entrecot which was absolutely perfect. As a side I had some chips and they even had my beloved aoli (what a lot of other restaurants refuse to serve as it's not posh enough or something). For desert I had the almond tarte, yummie goodness! Just 1 point of critique, I am quite tall and found the table too low and the chairs too small and uncomfortable (painful even) after a while, would love to see that changed. Other than that a great experience. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

Wonderful setting and great food and outstanding service

Went here for a special family lunch. The setting is so lovely with the view of the gardens in a very unique historic building. The menu is very much seasonal and all the lovely flavours dedicated to the amazing herb garden located at the side of the building. We were seated by the fireplace for perfect ambience. It was our waitress that really made the day, outstanding service. Cannot rate her highly enough! Food was just delicious and the wines especially the Leon is really worth the try! Cannot rate this higher.

Good Spanish cuisine with home made touches of Catalonia

The cooking was as authentic Spanish as we’ve had outside Spain. We had tapas and tapas and Leon wine and finished with Lepanto brandy. Would go regularly if we lived in Chch

Valentines Tapas

Thoroughly enjoyed our selection of tapas and would have loved to try more but was intent on having space for dessert, which we both enjoyed to round out our evening. Great food coupled with smiley helpful staff. I love having happy smiling staff sharing the evening with us

Excellent hospitality!

Been a while since we came here but fancied lunch looking out at the gardens on a warmish day. We were well received and had a table on the deck just under cover outside with a view towards the gardens. We decided to go for the Tapas special and so waited eagerly to see what came. We had one soup and one salad to start and then a selection of Tapas (squid, potatoes, aubergine, chorizo etc) and then surprisingly a lamb chop with potato (we had forgotten this) everything was tasty including the wine. There was a nice "family owned restaurant" feel to our visit and so we stayed a bit longer and had the most wonderful creme brulee served with coffee. Thoroughly enjoyed our lunch here again, will not be as long before we revisit. It was also great to see the place so busy, I am sure everyone was delighted with what was presented that day.
