  • The food was possibly the nicest tapas food I've ever eaten. The atmosphere was brilliant and the service was fantastic! I will definitely be coming here more often!

  • Without a doubt the best bar/restaurant in Darlington. Very friendly staff, great food, some very good guest ales, very friendly clientel and a fantastic management team, to ensure you enjoy your time spent there. The only place in town that l would consider eating & drinking in. My few words cannot do the place justice... dont just take my word for it, enjoy the Tapas experience for yourselves. I know you will return again snd 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.
