This is a small dining area with retro hippo vibes, with aromas pulling you in by the nose! Relaxed atmosphere, good service, and innovative dishes.

Garlic is the theme here! Great garlic themed art on the walls, and very tasty meals too. We had the salmon special and also the regular salmon dish on the menu, and both were delicious.

We ate here twice for lunch and both times the food was awesome. I would recommend the starter with the baked garlic heads and brie served with baguettes and fruit (i forget the name on the menu). It is not a fancy restaurant by any means. The decor is quirky. The service was very good and friendly despite how busy... More

Cosy bistro style restaurant that has an extensive menu featuring expected as well as unique uses for garlic. Tasty food to be enjoyed at leisure.

If you love garlic this is the place to go. Had the quinoa salad and it was better than many others that I've had. Sangria was good. Desserts looked good but meal was filling

Last night we checked out this restaurant. We ordered our drinks which were served within 15 minutes. Our waitress said it was slow that night, but we waited for over an hour and a half for our food! If it wasn't for the fact we sat on the small patio, we would have walked away. When our Garlic Yum burgers... More

My husband and I shared a sun dried tomato hummus and very much enjoyed it. Our meals were fantastic, great portions and lots of flavor. Great decor inside, and a cute patio. Staff was also great and my martini was delicious. If you love garlic, you will love this restaurant!

We were excited to try this restaurant after seeing their quirky decor and menu. Don't worry, the food isn't as 'weird' as you might expect considering the garlic theme of the restaurant! We ordered the Mezze platter and the Garlic Yum burger, and both were very flavourful without being TOO garlicky. The calamari was my favourite part of the platter,... More
