i stayed next door to this place for a few weeks and found myself there often. The food is good and the bar has a great stock. I enjoyed the environment mostly. It does get a bit loud on weekend nights.

Have been to this restaurant several times, and the meat is always good. Had a lunch this time, and the plank steak was just perfect, juicy and tasty, with nice sauces and mashed potato. A somewhat expensive lunch, but worth it. Quick service as well. Only negative was that we had to work hard to get the waiter´s attention to... More

Serves excellent but pricy meat. Staff is equally skilled and the bar is often full. Always a good place to visit

The food here was lovely, especially the steaks. However, it felt a little overpriced for what there was. Also, as another commenter has stated, the chips were excessively salty. It was very dark, in an attempt to be 'atmospheric,' which meant my elderly grandfather couldn't see his food to eat it, so perhaps not ideal for older people. However, besides... More

I visited on a busy evening service. I had a rather bland salmon and caviar dish for starter that we kind of ok. For main the half roast chicken on a platter with roasted garlic accompaniment and fries was massively salty and made me have to drink copious amounts of water in the hotel next door. This place charges the... More

The food is great, but something I will always remember is their Mojito. This is one of the best ones I have ever tasted. I could probably drink ten of them at one time.

I went to thos restaurant with some of my colleagues. I must say that the very first impression of this restaurant was not that good. First of all, the very loud music that made a cross table conversation not so easy. Second, the restaurant itself was crowded and has a hipster style interior. However, the food itself was very good.... More
