A moodily lit, cavernous venue run by Tom & Owen Morgan of the Bar 44 group; victuals revolve around Spanish-inspired stuffs singed on the parilla grill, be it the well-priced lunchtime 'plato del dià', or 'La Ventana', an evolving array of whole wild fish, seafood, speciality meats and seasonal vegetables cooked over wood. An almost wholly Spanish drinks list seals the deal.

An “almost entirely Spanish drinks list” deconstructed by an “excellent sommelier” sets the tone at Tom & Owen Morgan’s – of ‘44’ group fame – three-year-old flagship, with its own dedicated wine cave. “A wonderful experience from beginning to end”, the food is consistently highly rated, with Spanish and Welsh produce singed on the parilla grill over different sorts of wood (think 70-day dry-aged Rubia Gallega chuletón steaks).

Positive but still-limited feedback on this dim-lit Spanish yearling in the city-centre – the new flagship of Tom and Owen Morgan’s ‘44’ group – which comes complete with wine-cave and cheese room. Meats from the Asador are the main event.
