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.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
