Harden's survey result
A “lovely, good-value Spanish restaurant” whose modern, industrial style interior has a “buzzy, relaxed and friendly atmosphere”. This is the larger of two branches in York serving tapas and paella (there are offshoots in Leeds and Hull): “I love it and have never had a bad meal there”.
“You are transported to Spain” at this buzzing, industrial-style spin-off to the four-strong York-born chain (also with branches in Hull and Leeds); on the menu, “yummy” and “authentic” tapas plus “superb sherry” delivered by “all Spanish staff”.
A large and relatively recent outpost of this four-strong York-born chain (also in Leeds and Hull) with the “best atmosphere” of the hometown branches; its “lovely” tapas is praised for its “great value” by fans – critics say it’s “less exciting than it was” or attack some “ill-judged” combinations.
The “industrial”, “warehouse-style” location provides a lively (if “squashed” and “noisy”) setting for tapas, wines and sherries at this bigger sibling to the Goodramgate original. Service can be “slow”, and foodwise, results are “variable” – “some dishes are like misguided experiments, some are OK, some are good”.
