Beautifully decorated, calm, peaceful, free wifi, gigantic coffee and a free waterfall. Charming staff, peace and quiet with no worries about being spotted or mown down by passing pedestrians. A joy.

As we were going to the Everyman Theatre, and always enjoy Greens, which is across the road, we decided to book dinner here. The restaurant space is bright and modern. Lots of room between tables, many of which overlook it's trademark waterfall. Crisp linen tablecloths and napkins add that touch of luxury and occasion.The service, as usual, was very friendly...

Thoroughly enjoyed dining here. We had the early bird menu and although it wasn't perfect - my hake was a touch over cooked- overall it was delicious. The dishes were beautifully presented and the service was really good.
