    Fantastic tapas and record store. The prawns come in a rich, roasted tomato sauce that's hard to get enough of

    2015 Best Brunch: "… dinner-menu staples like the lamb bocadillo … While you’re waiting for your table (there will be a wait), browse the back bookshop for fiction, art books, vinyl, [etc.] …"

    Watch out! Sangria is not sangria. It's a kind of soft drink. But the three tapas we tried were great, tasty. Patatas bravas, recommended.

    Menu is not impressive; but everything we tried was pretty good. Particularly enjoyed the chickpea fritters and lamb burger. Nice cozy place. Check out their vinyl record collection at the back.

    Nice atmosphere, decent but not stellar tapas, and slightly iffy service. Overall a good experience, but too pricey.

    Excellent food and great service. The staff was friendly. Didn't have any food I didn't like. Highly recommend the boquerones. We had 3 ordered our table shared. Don't miss the Serrano ham either.

    Gambas-perfectly cooked- heads on-not to much garlic. Skate was the second best item on the menu. The chocolate covered almonds were surprisingly delicious-salt and sweet in perfect harmony.

    It’s a record store! It’s a bookstore! It’s a tapas bar! Somehow these three concepts combine to make the ideal JP hangout. It might not work if the food weren’t great, but it is. Read more
