The menu also features exciting Spanish delicacies that can be paired with a drinks list featuring an extensive range of wines and cocktails offered at the restaurant.

 Heirloom Cherry Tomatoes Salad | Creamy Iberico Ham Croquettes
Luvin' the Creamy Iberico Ham Croquettes! It was nicely prepared. Smooth and creamy on the inside, with a crispy layer on the outside.

Spanish Caesar Salad

Gambas Al Ajillo

Fresh tiger prawns sauteed in olive oil, with garlic, chilli and parsley. A pretty decent Spanish tapas dish that was flavourful and pleasing to me.

 Pulpo A La Parrilla Con Papas Arrugadas Y Mojo

Smoky grilled octopus with baby potatoes, coriander and paprika sauce. It was nicely prepared with a rather chewy, crusty and smokey texture. 

Fideua De Calamares 

Squid Ink Spanish Noodles Paella with Crispy Calamari. This is probably the best delicacy for the night!

Pluma Iberica

Grilled Pluma Iberico Pork with Padron Peppers and creamy pumpkin. I adore the tenderness of the meat which goes well with the creamy pumpkin. This is probably my next favourite dish.

Arroz Negro

Squid Ink Paella with fresh cuttlefish, clams and prawns, served with aioli. 

Paella De Chorizo Y Habitas

The Spanish chorizo is perfection and full of taste, with the tender and sweet fava beans adding a hint of sweetness all cooked in rich broth with the subtle flavours and aroma of the saffron.

One of the dessert listed above - Fresh cheese mousse, roasted pumpkin ice cream, quince and walnut! A rather unique dessert combining creamy, full-flavoured fresh cheese and a pumpkin ice cream that is natural and light
