I stumbled on this place as they had a sign out the front proclaiming cheap breakfast and being of Scottish background I couldn't resist the prospect of a cheap meal. The prices were indeed cheap, but the food, coffee and service were superb. I an here now for my fourth breakfast and I was ushered in by Alex, straight to... More

We had drinks with friends at this venue which also turned into a meal. We sat on the upstairs balcony, we had planned to sit downstairs because we had a disabled person in our group, but they were not opening the bar on the lower level so we were forced to sit upstairs. This became a bit of an issue... More

Hard floors and walls cause too much noise for any conversation to be held without almost shouting. We left and had coffee elsewhere (a quieter place) so we could converse. Menu is a bit limited.

Upstairs could be a great venue for Friday evening drinks, but there's simply too many people there. I guess that's a good sign but I can't quite understand why. Drinks are too expensive, the food is rather average. I actually go quite often as my friends love it. They think it's a trendy place to be. Sauv blanc, shouted conversations... More

Having dined here on many occasions and spent some considerable time enjoying Friday night drinks here over the years it's about time I give credit where it's due. The place is beautiful, well spaced and very trendy. The food is sensational with their head chef always coming up with the goods no matter what and when (breakfast, lunch or dinner)... More

The way they treat their staff in this restaurant is disgraceful. Not only do not they not pay them but they abuse travellers by taking them on for a weeks trial and never paying them. The two guys that run and own this restaurant should be ashamed of themselves as they bully staff into fearing them over the most insignificant... More
