Large menu

We are cleared our plates which says it all, but we had to ask for a vegetarian starter as there was only breads available. Very busy during Xmas period but service was good and meals represented value for money. Liked the fact that the chef came out and spoke to people. Worth a try.

There is a wealth of restaurants in Southbank, but fewer places for breakfast. This place opens early and is a good choice for breakfast. You can always tell a good place by the number of locals who frequent the place. There were plenty of locals here and the owner said hello to all the locals walking past on their way... More

This small gem on Palmer St. is a must if you love good Italian food! It is family run, and has a much more authentic menu than most so-called "Italian" restaurants. I'm a huge fan of risotto, so I ordered the shrimp & scallop risotto - it was the best I've ever had! The chef (owner?) was very helpful with... More

A pleasant surprise for breakfast on our way back to the M on Palmer St after morning walk. So impressed we returned the same night for dinner, and weren't disappointed.

Ate breakfast with colleagues. Bacon bs eggs were cooked perfectly. My tea was nice and my college did her coffee was good too. The prices are very good, service was friendly and quick. We would probably pop back again in the future too. Our experience was good, not outstanding but good functional brekkie.
