My wife and I found the environment warm and the service very good in this little bar and restaurant. The servers were very courteous and timely in their interaction, the food was made in a timely manner, and the food was good. It was a great experience.

We went there to get a bite to eat once we arrived and the service was great, our server/bartender was on time and very accommodating. I had the burger and my husband has the seafood pancake. The only problem with my food was that along the way they forgot the top bun of my burger. Not a big deal on... More

Hi Dobrinka23, Thank you kindly for taking the time to post your review. I'm glad yourself and your husband enjoyed your time with us. Our burger is actually meant to be served with just one half of a bun in the evening time. Apologises if you misunderstood that. It is served on a bun as opposed to in a bun.... More

You need to book a table as it is popular and busy. The food was delicious but when you had finished you felt that you needed to vacate your table. The bar area was extremely packed. Jennie H
