Having established our business in the heart of the business district, it’s great to be expanding into Hope Street.
“It’s an exciting time to be running a small and independent group of restaurants in the North West and we have plans to grow it to seven in the coming years.”
Javier, who was born in Madrid, added: “We love what we do and we’re proud of what we have achieved. We’re already attracting lots of people looking for an exciting new place to eat whether that’s for brunch, lunch or post-theatre tapas.”
