  • Amazing spot for absolutely class food. The selection of dishes is just enough from both Greek and Spanish origin. The (imported) cheese board is great for £8.99 and the meat dishes you can get are very well prepared, seasoned and presented. Stifado is one of my favourites along with Pollo y Chorizo a la Espanola with a nice creamy sauce (both around £5). The atmosphere is great, even on busy nights the vibe inside the joint is cool. A mix of locals, regulars and people from further afield complete the mix for a very inviting time. The staff are on point, they keep you looked after and are super-nice. The beer and wine selection on offer is also good. I've been here quite a few times over a thirteen year period and it still exudes the charm that I initially experienced first off. Can't wait to visit again. Next time I'll get some nice photos too.

  • We visited the old yard tapas bar as a large group of 15. The food was excellent with a wide variety of Spanish and Greek tapas menus. What was really good was the 6 or more group menu which came out with over 10 (the beer was flowing so I cannot remember the exact amount) well sized dishes. The service was brilliant and what was nice was that they catered for individual needs, the pizza was available as an online pre order but not on the in-house menu and yet they still made it. It was a great night for all of us and I would highly recommend this restaurant.
