  • 5 star ratingAmazing place! The restaurant itself has a nice warm feel which makes for a comfortable dining experience.

    I ordered a chorizo and halloumi gyros and....oh my god! One of the best gyros I’ve ever had. A massive thumbs up to the tapas team

  • Managed to squeeze us in even though fully booked. All the food was beautiful and sangria refreshing. Always a good choice. ??

  • My favourite place in Darlington centre to eat and/or socialise. The food has never, ever failed (and I’ve eaten there over 30 times over the years I reckon) and they constantly up there game by adding new dishes (their fresh fish dishes are absolutely delicious)

    The service and atmosphere can’t be bettered; relaxing, attentive and always upbeat.

    They fully deserve every success they have.

  • A lovely evening was spent here. There is a wide variety of Spanish and Greek tapas dishes and service was relatively quick. The food was tasty and just about right to accompany a chat. Will call again

  • 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.

  • Nice food, but its not sure if it wants to be a bar or restaurant. Staff were fantastic and we left a tip for that, price was reasonable but you need to take your order to the bar and we weren't offered a dessert menu. Not really what I want from a restaurant
