The food was absolutely delicious here. Every meal is painstakingly thought out and all of the flavours complement each other beautifully. We had the cheese plate and charcuterie board to start, the house made meats were incredible and were delicious with the cheeses. The white sangria had raspberry puree and was wonderful. I had the rabbit special, words can't even... More

If you like a spicy caesar this is the place to go. The pork belly appetizer was fantastic. Indian braised beef was also great not too spicy. Top notch service and solid food. We will be back.

We started out with a Tapas Plate which was absolutely delicious. Both of us had fresh fish, which was cooked perfectly. The wine suggestions were spot on. The decor was realy... More

Only tiny complaint - for the high prices could they not include a few slices of good bread on the table as part of the service? Also - this restaurant is NOT waterfront contrary to it's... More

Excellent meal and service! We would return for dinner in an instant. Our only complaint was the AC hit us on the back, so we had to reposition some people.
