Very average, over-priced lunch

Group of four. Good points about the food were: coffee was ok; poached egg was perfectly cooked, and the portions were generous. Negative points: Dry chicken; charred, bitter sourdough; dry grilled salmon; pre-marinated/seasoned salad that caused the tomatoes to taste 'fizzy' Suggest that... read more

Great service from friendly attentive staff, nothing was to much to ask. For food we ordered the rainbow trout and a pollo picante, both of which where very tasty.

Thought we would go for a quick lunch but surroundings and friendly service made us linger longer. The meal was excellent and the service attentive without being pushy.

This restaurant is a wonderful find. The chef orders what he needs for the day and when they run out they run out. I have a great deal of respect for that. You know that you are getting fresh food from a staff that cares. The wait staff are from all over the world and trying their best be understand... More

Rice dishes can be sticky... Presentation is good. A major plus point is that the kitchen is in plain view of... More

My rating shouldn't mean that the food here or the ambience is average. My rating relates to my enjoyment of my visit. The restaurant has a fairly small bar area with mainly standing areas. I believe that a small area may have been reserved for another party. Finally as someone with a mild hearing loss I was unable to take... More

Great staff. We asked for a particular cocktail and the barman looked it up for us, then made it perfectly.
